48C under load with Prime95, and the tests all pass 100%. Before this, temps were
over 55C and Prime95 would always eventually report an error. When I first built the
system in May 2008, I'd done a few HSF attachments before, but I was no expert. Seems
that doing it 'properly' rather than just 'ok' can be a huge factor to obtaining the best
results. Hence, I reckon I can push the clock up a bit higher; it's currently 3.225GHz.

PS. In other words, if you built your system at a time when perhaps you weren't too
familiar with HSF attachment methods (like I was) - then redoing the setup with the
above AS info may help a lot.
This is a very nice find. I've never thought about it. I've reworked my cooling the way it was specified but so far not much changed. I guess that AC Freezer 64 just can't cool the system any better. I might try other thermal compound as I'm using some silver-based thermal paste which I use for electronics and I think it's a bit grainy. Will try Arctic Silver now and we'll see.

More than likely. Alas, to get the best results, you need something way up
there like a TRUE or Titan Fenrir. At least these are a fair bit cheaper now
than when I first built my system.

Grainy probably is bad.

I bought AS5 but I also bought their ArtiClean 1 & 2 kit in order to be sure
the old material was removed correctly. Both items are pretty cheap.

Here btw is a good reference:

http://www.frostytech.com/articlevie...ID=2233&page=4

You can see from the list why I bought an U120 Extreme.

I think back in 2008 it was about 45 UKP here, but now it's down to
31 UKP, the same price or less than the Titan Fenrir. Scan UK has the
TRUE for 34 UKP.

So I have been reading more online trying to figure out my problem and I think that part of it is that when I flashed the BIOS from 1201 to 5002 I didn't reset the BIOS to default prior to flashing with 5002. So it seems that this is one of the main causes of this problems.

Now when I put in the 4200+ with any BIOS the system restarts by itself after about 3 secs. If I have the 940BE with any BIOS, the system doesn't POST and stays on blank screen. If I only have 1 mem stick on slot A1 or two mem sticks in slots A1 and A2 the system works just fine.

Should I get a new BIOS chip?

Just get the system to run stable and try to reflash your bios again.

Maybe try a CrashFree Bios 3 recovery, see if that helps.

Good luck

I have tried that already flashing between 5002 and 2209 with EZ Flash and clearing the CMOS, no luck on getting memory to run ganged or the 4200+ to run.
It wont let me to go back to 1201, says it's too old or something.



Will try the CrashFree Bios 3 recovery, don't know if there is a big difference between this method and EZ Flash, but we'll see.

Are you trying Ganged mode w/o 4 sticks of ram? If not so then that could be your problem and they should be the same size as well. I don't understand why you would need Ganged mode though. Unganged is more stable IMO and faster any way for most every day use like games etc.

Way cool, literally and figuratively. I honestly felt like this wouldn't be wholly possible w/o liquid cooling. I have had my Phenom dialed back a bit since I got it. I would love to get it going faster. This board has quite a bit to offer still, even tho it falls short in some areas. It's still a beast.

I've only had this terrible Gigabyte 3D Rocket cooler. I'm starting to think the stock AMD HSF/heat sink would have been better. Inspecting it, iirc, I saw that it had a copper surface and Cu heatpipes, and aluminum fins. Looks like srss bznss.
