sorry, didn't forget you,stopped for coffee and smoke.

Ok,I'll start by saying that the Ph I's are not good oc'ers and we my not get too much higher than 2.6-2.7.But we are going to try.

What is the cpu volts you are running at 2.6?(check with cpu-z)
Set that voltage manually in bios.(your bios volt setting my differ from what shows in cpu-z,adjust accordingly)Alot of M2N32's overvolt the cpu,mine does by .044v(eg:1.30v in bios = 1.344v in cpu-z)

Since you have 2.6(12x217) stable we can start at that 12x217 for 2.6.
Run prime for about 10 minutes,just to see if it's ok with the manual settings.
If it passes ok raise ref clock to 220 and run prime for 10 minutes.
If it fails raise cpu volts 1 notch and retest,still fails raise 1 more notch and retest.
If it passes raise to 222 and test again,fails? raise cpu volts 1 notch.
and so on,see how far that gets you.

Good luck

If taking the side panel off gives you better temps it could mean airflow in your case is inefficient. My case used to be the same way but at some point with all my fan/airflow tweaking that changed.

How do you have your fans setup inside?

And now that I'm thinking about it, which way is your cooler mounted? The older AM2 boards had a crappy mounting bracket that wouldn't allow you to horizontally mount the cooler. So I'm guessing your Xiggy's fans point up/down instead of front/back? This could be causing a bottleneck in the airflow unless you have some topside fans exhausting air.

Also you may think about adding another fan to your Xiggy for a push/pull setup and then get some non-adhesive duct tape to enclose the sides of the cooler to direct the airflow through the fins and not allow it to escape out. This is a little something I did when I got my Xiggy and I noticed a 5c drop in temps.

In this picture my cooler is mounted vertically but not anymore. And if you were wondering the tape actually holds the other fan in place.

Ok.So if i set the volts to more than 1.3 pc wont boot or i get blue screen. This happens on 215 to 220. 220 is unstable on auto unstable on 1.3. i lowerd to 218 at 1.3v and it seems stabel. in cpu-z core voltage it's 1.328 but sometimes jumps to 1.340. And core temp says temp max 77 C

@ Fossil, the M2N32 cpu bracket is mounted east/west so tower coolers that use the stock mount naturally sit front to back.

@ octhunder, how high above 1.3v did you try?
Also try setting the ram volts manually to 2.3v

Not surprised by your findings. They are consistent with what I've seen which is why I asked the question.

I don't think the point is so much about airflow as it is about getting heat away from parts that generate it. A closed case is an air trap. And heat rises. Most cases I've ever seen in person are not really well suited to deal with situation where heat output is as high as it is with newer CPUs and GPUs. In fact my case in particular sucked (and in the wrong way if you consider the pun) big time when it came just to the X2. I just never knew it until I started into the X4 world.

The best heat sync in the world won't matter much if the ambient temperature in the case is high because of the confined space in which the PC parts live. For this reason, I run my case on its side and when I do gaming, I leave the side panel off. I do return the side panel at night mostly as a dust shield. If I'm doing low intensity work, I can leave the panel on because it does decrease noise output quite a bit.

BTW, when I game, and I just finished Crysis 2 recently, the CPU will top out at around 50C with perhaps a 70% utilization. Ian, if you're reading this, the 965BE is not starving the SLI'd 460s. And my system is overclocking the FSB to 2000MHz and the CPU is at 3.75GHz,

Going back to the airflow point, there are high-end cases I've seen on Techzilla. The case can orient the mainboard by 90 to allow airflow to flow from bottom to top rather than from front to back. I believe the case is also considered to be positive pressure. This would ensure that the internal parts are seeing ambient temperature consistent with that outside the case, and heat transfer out is happening properly. All of this is only a consideration for air-cooled implementation. If you go to water cooling, the game is a bit different.

Thanks for all the help guys. I appreciate it.

Since I am not using the stock cooler mounts, my CPU cooler setup is the same as fossil's. only I'm just using one fan and it is mounted on the bottom (no duct tape added to the sides... yet). I guess that means I'm sucking up all the hot air from the video card and blowing it on my heatsink, lol. If I'm not going to add a second fan, perhaps I should mount the fan on top instead and see if there is a temp difference.

My case fans are indeed 1200RPM

I have read that disabling Q-fan profiles in the BIOS means that they are automatically using Performance mode. In other words, running at full RPMs... which is better than Optimal mode as that will adjust fan speeds on the fly. Currently they are all disabled.

I will lower the CPU voltage in the BIOS a little more first to get closer to 1.33V in CPU-Z, then move the cooler fan to the top position, then the two-line method of applying thermal grease, then the side panel fan in suck mode, then in blow mode, all one at a time to test temps for each step. I'll you know how it goes. Thanks again.

I would think the more exhaust force you can create to evacuate the warmed air will give you the best results.

I posted some pics within the past few weeks to show how I positioned two 140mm fans right behind the harddisk cage to blow on the CPU and GPUs. I have two 460s in this rig. Unfortunately the case I'm using only has only one 120mm exhaust fan which even at max rotation isn't enough to keep up with the needed airflow to equalize the internal ambient temperature with room ambient temp.
