Temps @ Idle with an Arctic Freezer 7 Pro Are;
(ambient room temperature is around 75 degrees)
Those idle temps suck. Clean your CPU and Heatsink with Artic Cleaner and properly apply Arctic Silver 5. http://www.arcticsilver.com
Should be able to idle between 29-33C no problem at stock volts.
And a simple way to start your OC out right is to just flip your FSB to 1066, unlink your RAM and leave it back at 800 or 667, up the CPU voltage to 1.4 and NSB/SB other volts by .1 each and let her rip. That should get up and running at 2.6ghz and you check your temps, load test, and tweak from there.
Once you get the CPU up around 3ghz you can go back to RAM. Check the volts on your RAM (you will probably need to run at 2.1v or 2.2v) and clock it up to 1066 with the timings on the label and see if you can get it stable!Edited by LiquidKaos - 6/20/08 at 1:41pm
