To take the IHS off the chip use a knife and cut the gasket around the spreader. Take your time and don't stick the knife to far under the spreader. It will take a few passes to get under it. After you get it off, clean the old paste/glue off with alcohol. Reapply new thermal paste. I used elmers glue where the gaskets use to be to hold the IHS back on.

Would someone mind taking a quick look at the screenshots from my two first overclocks with my E5200? I've been reading pretty much everything I could before I finally went at it tonight, but things seem a little off. Some of my VCore readings definitely seem odd, though all in all things have been going really smoothly.

All I want to know is at a quick glance, does anything here look odd to you?

E5200 @ 36666.6MHz stable (3 hours of Orthos Small FFT)
Screenshot of my desktop after stress testing
CPU-Z validation

E5200 @ 4000.11MHz, currently a little over an hour into Orthos Small FFT with no trouble, temps are a little high, at 68-69c 90% of the time, occasionally bouncing up to 70 for a second or down as far as 65
CPU-Z Validation
Screenshot from before starting stress test

I've got a pretty empty Antec Three Hundred which makes for fairly decent airflow even with the fairly weak fan setup (one low speed Scythe GentleTyphoon intake at the front, the two stock exhausts, and a 80mm Thermaltake ghetto-rigged as a size exhaust.) The 120mm rear exhaust was on medium for the 3.66 and high for the 4GHz, and the 140mm top exhaust was at low, and now high. I also just reattached my Xigmatek S1283 with AS5 so itll be a bit before it sets.

My I set my VCore in the BIOS to 1.3625v, and while I don't remember the exact numbers for the 3.66GHz OC (I have the settings saved in the BIOS) it was around four notches down from 1.3625v. Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

edit: Fixed the SS links, if they're still too small let me know.

in those screen shots, CPU-Z seems to be reporting the core voltage at 0.996v or something similar. Yet, the VID is shown as 1.21v. Something is not right.

What is cpu-z actually reporting for your voltage?

My gigabyte board would allow me to change voltages, and report to me the voltages I changed them too. But when I went to look at the PC Health tab (whatever its called), it would show stock voltage. So after a bios update, I was allowed to properly change my voltages and have them actually change.

Wonder if your having something similar? Or if cpu-z is mis-reporting.

Yeah thats the main thing that had me confused, as my VCore is obviously not the 0.96-0.968 CPU-Z is showing; every program is reporting it that way, but when I check my PC Health Status in the BIOS it shows its running at the appropriate the voltages I set. I searched around a bit but found when CPU-Z was mis-reporting for most people, some other programs were still accurate, which is not the case here.

This mobo is actually known to be a fairly weak overclocker, and theres been talk of them having faulty sensors, but I really can't put my finger on exactly whats going on.

If you go click on "User CP" at the top of the page, then go to the left side and click "Add System", you can fill in your pc information there and it will show up at the bottom of your posts. Would be very helpful for us to know what hardware you are working with. Then we can do research based on your Hardware. Currently, I don't know what mobo you have.

It sounds to me like you may need to perform a bios update for your motherboard. if its a gigabyte, it should be easy

That's not the issue. If the thread is entitled the E5200 Overclocking Thread it seems that it should include information helpful to those overclocking the E5200.

Yeah, sorry, I had planned on giving further details, but I just wanted to check first and see if I was just doing something obvious wrong. I'm going to fill out that stuff now. I'm using a eVGA nForce 730i, which again, is known for its inability to overclock. There also hasn't been a decent bios update in a while, but I really just bought it for the integrated 9300 since this is going in an HTPC that won't be OC'ed.

I'm really just testing the waters now to get a feel for this whole thing, so that I have some experience to work with when I build my new primary rig in a few months.
