Good luck

Ok, maybe i've been reading too much on the net about temperatures, it just seems like everyones got better temps than me, but then i guess no one would post to brag that theirs is running at 70°C.

I was umming and arring about lapping the IHS, but i didn't do it, as i didn't have a really fine grit paper, and i daren't use anything remotely coarse, but i've just orded some 2500 grit off ebay, so when it arrives i'll finish off the heatsink and do the spreader.

Also i actually read the artic silver website today, as opposed to just making it up as go along lol, and they said for the first 200 hrs you should let your cpu go through a series of heat cycles, letting it cool down to room temperature in between heating it up. I didn't know this, but i've been doing it today, and it's booting into windows at 40°C now, where as it was approx. 47°C pre-lapping

'44*c is very nice just remember that ambient temps have a very big effect on your cpu temp.' ....i'm in England, it's only been about 17°C here today, and about 10°C (seriously) with the windchill.

I'm looking at other fans, but i really don't want a jet engine sitting next to me (been there, done that), so i'm weiry about getting another.

Just remember that with lapping its not the shine but the flatness that you want. What I recommend is going up to 5000 grit tho and then using a polishing compound then using some Alcohol to clean, wipe then Alcohol again.

AS5 does have a "burn in" time which is why I am really not a fan, plus it is conductive. I would recommend either MX2 or IC7 as they have no set up time and are superior. Another thing is the way you apply the TIM can have a dramatic effect on your temps. There are many different ways to apply and I will go through a few.
Some use the credit card method, "I spread to all four sides, scrape the blade with another blade, dab where its sparse, spread until there's a layer all around" which can produce air bubbles. There is the line method which is ok but usually puts too much TIM on, and there is the drop method. The drop method is where you put a small drop (usually slightly bigger then the nozzle on the applicator) and then seat the HSF with a twisting motion. This tends to work best(at least for me) due to the fact that you do not apply too much and it spreads evenly w/o air bubbles forming. You do not need to cover the whole surface which is where some people mess up. The cores are in the middle and that is where the heat is. Remember that we are talking about a cpu that is (?)45nm(?) heck even if its 55nm that is still really small.
Now to talk about AS5 I have noticed that with my setup((yes I tried some)screw down bracket) after a while I needed to go back and tighten it again because the AS5 has heated and spread and I was not getting the proper pressure anymore.

17c so that about 60*f (just guessing) I am assuming that it is not that could in your house. If so then the temps you are getting are not great but their not bad either. Personally I like to set my OC's in the summer on a hot day so that I know that my PC will be fine even if it gets hot. That being said in the winter I do the same thing. I save my bios profile and see how high I can run it with the new temps. (I go from ~75*f in summer to 65*f in the winter.)

I would really recommend getting stronger fans then you think you need along with a fan controller. That way when you want to see how much you can do you can crank the fans, up then when you are done you can turn them back to an acceptable level. The thing I caution you about tho is that If you case fans are not able to remove the air as quickly as your HS fans move it through your HS then you will have worse temps due to the fact that the HSF's are recirculating heated air.

Sorry about the massive post guys!

Just decided to OC her a bit, looks good so far. This is a fresh copy with Windows 7 x64 drivers installed. No Anti Virus software to slow it down.

holy cow 1.23vcore @ 3.1 nice: you should be able to make 3.4 or better quite easily then. That is stable right????
nice wallpaper BTW.

So far so good lol No stability tests yet. Hasn't BSOD'd yet. Been going for about 3 hours @ 39C. Finally ordered my PSU and it'll be here Tuesday, so I should be able to get better results and higher clocks.. Yes, I'm still on the 250 watt HP mentioned way back in this thread

well I would not be surprised that as soon as you run something like prime95 you get a BSOD if not I think you now have the golden chip. (mine was)

It shuts down under a load due to the PSU. Will keep these clocks on Tuesday when my new PSU gets here and run p95 to see if its stable

We'll see

I had great luck with my other K8 CPU (Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Manchester @ 2.7GHz).. so who knows

Do I qualify?

So far I can only get it too 2.6GHz on Windows 7 64bit. I'm suspecting it to be the 2 extra RAM dimms I popped in when I went 64bit.
