post #2881 of 12343
Hey guys, thanks for the warm welcome

Been experimenting with getting the temperatures down this evening, reseated the 9700 a couple of times with varying amounts of thermal grease. I have used most of it up now but have found a sweet spot with slightly less applied than before. However when re-applying the grease there were a few darkish streaks in it (I had listened to N2Gaming and mixed it well beforehand). Still not being entierly happy with it however, so bought some Arctic Silver 5 - have had good experience with Arctic thermal compounds in the past.

Then went on to lowering the voltage on the vcore. Have it at 1.2V currently yielding much better temperatures and apparently stable on Prime (only been running an hour or so). Haven't ventured any lower yet but looking around the net, 1.2V seems to be about the lowest stable voltage at stock speeds.

Actuality, glad to hear 1.2 volts is holding up for you. Is the surface of the 9700 pretty clean? Are there any scratches/dings? If you haven't thought about it already you could lap both surfaces (processor and heatsink). This would get rid of any imperfections that may exist on the heatsink. Not only that but it should also flatten the base more which provides a better contact with the processor when mounted. Lapping would definitely yield some better temperatures under load as well. Just remember, lapping your processor will void the warranty. Here is the guide that I followed: http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling...ltake-big.html.

Good luck

I'm glad to hear it actuality. I am setting up my shop in the garage and will post pics for all O Yo Pictorial Whorials. It's nothing spectacular atm but I am going to have a dedicated M2N32 SLI Deluxe for Bios Help Questions and so on. I plan on using my older early to mid 90's 27" CRT Magnavox TV as a Monitor so I should be able to post some good bios screens w/it. Your temps should come down a bit more when the AS5 cures and sets up.

I just started open mobo bench testing my M2N32 today in the garage and am quite pleased w/what I am learning...

I also plan to use one of my mobo's out side of the chassis for temperature diagnostics. I am able to feel componants i.e. heat sinks pipes and so on a lot easier if they are not in a chassis. I like them on a bench at eye and arms reach.

I am currently Testing my RMA'd Mobo that is for sale and it seems to be working just Flawlessly w/a X2 5400+ BE and PCI vid card.

I will be using wireless internet in the garage so this is why I am choosing to use one of these mobo's out there. I can use this mobo as a DHCP Server to connect all of my other benchmark systems in the garage.

I need another keyboard or two. Donations gladly accepted.

thlk3r, Great suggestion on the Lapping. I personally don't like to lapp my cpu's. I'd rather void the waraty by running it naked but in all honesty I won't do any of those things untill my waranty period has expired and I don't have any thing to loose at that point any way.

N2Gaming, this is a really cool idea. I can't wait to see this

Thlnk3r, I have been in the garage drinking my silver bullets trying to figure out why none of my CD rom drives won't read the installation disk's from ASUS. So I came into the house to copy the files to a USB thumb drive hoping to install the Mobo and other drivers for the M2N32 and I dediced to click on the properties of the disk and low and behold the disk is over 2GB. I have been out in the garage for hours, mind you trying to make a DVD rom work in a older CD rom Drive. at least I got some feel good while doing so. Thanks to the rockies. So I'm gonna get the driver files that I need from the DVD onto usb thumb drive and hope that the generic windows drivers will detect the thumb drive and allow me to install the drivers for the mobo and Wifi.

Oh btw I have taken pictures of my garage for the before and aft. Not to impress but to show what all is involved in this projetct.

Hey guys, here is a few pics of my working area in progress. I wanted to upload pictures w/explanations of what I am doing but I tried something new w/my pictures and it did not work out as planned. I would upload more pictures w/explanations but I am only allowed 5 max pics per post doing it this way. Arg so I guess I'll have to do the Imageups thing if you all really want to see all the pics w/explanations.

Better do some cleanup so the airflow is better.



PS: can you edit my system name to this?

Huh I have more stuff. I would prolly be a 1/2 millionair if I did not purchase half the stuff I have. All jokes aside I have been slowly cleaning up my house, garage etc etc. I moved into this place when I was on the road working all the time. Then I had a bad motor cycle accident so I was not able to do a lot of stuff for a while. Trust me this place has come a long way since 6 months ago. I still need a shed in the back yard. sigh one of these days.

Hi Red Son,You certainly may ask any thing you want. I have one of those mobo's my self and you just reminded me of something. I need to take a picture of the mobo near the cpu. I think the mobo is missing a componant and that may be why it powers on and off right away every time I try to use it.

Hey Eclipse, I have been wondering if I am missing a componant in the red circled area above the cpu socket on this M2N32 WS Pro mobo???

Thanks.
