I had a xiggy all in one hsf that did 4000 rpm it wasnt too bad. No louder than my video card running 100%. Not that it ever does. When i get a chance im gonna get a kraze 120mm 3000 rmp fan for my cpu hs. Maybe two.

I dont really hear that fan actually. It's the one that came with the motherboard for the northbridge and its kinda small.
My generic AVC heatpipe cpu cooler that I used before had a 80mm fan with huge blades that ran 4100rpm, now that thing pissed me off somethin' fierce!

I overclocked with a P6N for about a year. The .04v vdroop is a killer for the board. There is no vdroop mod anywhere online. This means it will take a good bit more voltage due to the huge drop.

Also, being a 680i board, you need to learn the straps. She gets pretty touch 1200-1300 FSB, taking a good bit of NB and SB voltage. At 1301 a new strap starts and you can bring NB and SB back down to default levels.

The board has lots of bells and whistles. On board X-Fi, 4 PCIe slots, and nice chipset sink. NB fan was SUPER load. the fact that MSI dropped BIOS support so soon really bugged me. Almost all the other 680i boards had updates for 45nm procs, but not MSI. MSI makes good boards, but I would prbly not buy another one for myself, due to the lack of vdroop mods and board support.

It doesn't seem to support the .5 multi... Think that may be my problem?

Does your motherboard have a "Ratio Fine Tune" or something around those lines option? That's what Gigabyte boards use for the .5 multipliers anyways.

Just wondering, where do you guys place your tower? Mine is literally a foot away from me on the desk, so the front intake fan (off PWM) really pisses me off, it was much quieter when it was in the back of the case. Do any of you guys have a 38.5mm thick Arctic Cooling 120mm PWM fan? I was wondering how those perform, it is the cheapest I can get around here.

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the INCREDIBLE wealth of info in this thread. I've been out of the overclocking scene for a while as life just caught up and gaming and "pushing the fps" just didn't seem all that important anymore.

Well, the gf recently got me a brand new shiny graphics card, and I realized my old AMD Athlon 64 just wasn't cutting it. So, I jumped on the E5200 + MSI G31M3-L V2 deal from Fry's for $79.99 a week ago.

I certainly must say, there are a lot more to tweak now, and after spending a good amount of the long weekend going over this forum and many other sources, I have done the following:

1) BSEL mod -> 1.35V
2) Upgraded to Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
3) Did the unthinkable... went to 4.0GHz rock solid stable with 1.35V!

Now, all other things aside, my greatest question right now is:

How am I able to do this with a CPU whose original VID was 1.250V, which is rather high? I know from what I've read, the "sought after" e5200's are the ones with the 1.1xxV VID's as they would ensure higher FSB at acceptable voltages. But, here is my story...

When I first fired up my e5200/VID 1.250V, I tried 3.0GHz just for fun as the crappy MSI G31M3-L V2 had no CPU voltage adjustment options. The thing booted, and I played Fallout3 for almost 4 hours. Next day, I thought, what the hell... I booted up to 3.5GHz and played a few more hours of Fallout3. At that point, I realized something was amiss because given the high VID of 1.250, I wasn't expecting much out of my e5200.

Just to make sure I wasn't going out of my mind, I tried 4.0 GHz (320x12.5) at stock VID of 1.250. Damn system didn't boot then. Good, not dreaming.

So, after reading about the BSEL voltage mod, I of course had to try just one more time with 1.350V. Unbelievably, not only did it boot up at 4.0GHz, but it went right into WinXP and I ran 3DMark2006 3 times. Then, I played Fallout3 for about 5 hours.

Needless to say, I'm shocked... stumped really. I wasn't even expecting my little e5200 with 1.250V VID to hit 3.5GHz, much less 4.0GHz... and only at 1.350V! Is this a fluke, or did I just simply get lucky??

As always, many thanks in advance and look forward to your feedback.

Lower VID does not always equate to better OCing abilities. It does in most cases however. I mean, I've seen E5200's with a lower VID than mine (1.225V), but can't OC as well. But mine has a FSB wall at 300, so my E5200's OCing ability is quite limited. I just have to say, you have to stress test it to make sure it is stable, in my experiences, unstable CPUs can take gaming and applications fine, but not stress. And there's always the possibility of Intel's machine stamping the chip for a higher VID than it actually needed, nothing perfect right?

That's good to know, thanks! I've tried to read as many of the posts as I could, and I couldn't find a single case of this being the case.

And yes, I totally understand a true stress test would be Orthos for 10+ hours and that Intel CPU Stress test v2.1 or something along those lines. I will be running those when I get home tonight just to be sure.

Another thing to keep in mind though... I don't keep my desktop on 24/7, and generally only turn it on when I need to. I might venture a slightly higher voltage if I get errors, but might just hold back as well as I've played literally 5+ hours of a pretty system intensive game, and it ran flawlessly.

Hope to post some screenshots soon!
