When I RMA through G.Skill, from the time I email them for RMA to the time I get new RAM, it would have been under 2 weeks. Granted, I'm in UT and they are in CA, but so is Gigabyte.

I consider any RMA turn around under 30 days to be good. Anything more and they start to get poor ratings from me. Yes, some companies are much faster then others.

Wow, now that i'm caseless, i can fold stable on the stock cooler at 3.25Ghz, i'm going to push it a some more, let's see.

It sued to overheat on all stock in the case.

Ugh, this sucks

I just spent about 4 hours cleaning my PC and installing the Dark Knight cooler, I'm exhausted from messing with all this. It seems something ALWAYS doesn't go according to plan whenever I mess with the computer. Some of it my own doing not studying up on the exact things to do, but this time I watched videos, read tutorials on how to do this. As soon as I start taking my motherboard out, one of the small washers i used installing the motherboard was stuck around the screwhole, and theres no room to just your your finger in that part, so i use a screwdriver to try to push it out and do and bumped it up against the motherboard while I did. So I was scared that I just cut a lead or something and I screwed it up for good, even though there wasn't a mark there. And then for whatever reason in the CD in pin I plugged a cable in there that is supposed to go to my CD/DVD drive. But it was jammed in there and I spent forever trying to get it out. Eventually I used tweezers to get it out.

I get out the motherboard and take off the Intel fan and all the Intel fan compound is on the processor so I used some thermal paste remover on it, a few drips and then try to wipe it off. It's like liquid and when I'm wiping it gets on the processor holder on the motherboard, and I spend a ton of time trying to clean all that off and make sure everything is clean. There's still some marks on the heat spreader on the processor from the crappy Intel fan, but there's no compound on it.

So then I goto the Dark Knight. Put on the backplate, put on the tension bars, and take off the plastic film on the bottom of the heat sink. And as its pulling off the whole damn adhesive ON THE FILM was all over the bottom of the heat sink. I'm pretty sure that is not supposed to be on there according to what I've read. So I spend probably 45 minutes with some alcohol and stuff trying to rub all that adhesive stuff off the bottom of the heat sink. I do it as best as possible, then I attempt to put the Artic Silver on it, in a line fashion the best I could according to what I've read. I stick the heat sink on, tighten the spring loaded screws the best I can. In the video I saw after you tighten the screwdriver as far as it will go he uses a really small mini torque looking wrench to tighten them more, but I didn't have one in this version I guess so I made it as tight as I could.

So after more fun with trying to mount the motherboard and not having any room to screw thinks in on this small Gigabyte G31M-ES2L motherboard and screws being dificult as heck to screw in around the heatsink, I finally got it in. The heat sink completely dwarfs almost my entire motherboard.

After all this, my Intel E5200 before on stock fan was running at 41C at idle room temperature, which everyone says should be much cooler even on stock. Then after all that its down to 36-37C, which isn't even what "Stock" speeds should be running at.

I don't know what to do. I'm about to give up, I'm so sick of this stuff. All I wanted to do was try to overclock and I followed guides and tutorials I've watched and read to the best of my ability and my freaking processor is still running way too hot. I don't know what else I can do, anyone have any advice before I go crazy?

You're doing something completely wrong, in a case without airflow on stock it's cooler! I don't know what you did wrong, but this isn't right. What case do you have?

Also, that stuff on the Dark Knight was probably paste or a thermal pad.

I have a cooler master case with plenty of airflow. This is what the Artic Silver 5 website said, even if it was a thermal pad:

"If your heatsink has a thermal 'pad' mounted on it, this pad must be removed before using Arctic Silver 5. If your heatsink has thermal interface material applied to it, it must be removed first. After the pad or thermal interface material is removed, ONLY Arctic Silver 5 will be between the CPU heatspreader and the heatsink."

I don't know what the heck I could have done wrong really, either time. With the Intel fan you just push in the pins in the holes, so I don't know if a pin was loose or what. With this heat sink, the only thing I can think of is if I put too much or not enough thermal paste, or the tension brackets weren't tight enough, but I tightened them as far as I could with a screwdriver.

Also, for whatever reason, the bottom of the heatsink didn't feel exactly flat and smooth like its supposed to be. It felt rough and I even ran a thin cloth over it and it would 'catch' part of the cloth and give it like a split end. I don't think it's supposed to be like that. And I did nothing other than the instructions I just pasted to get that thermal pad or whatever off the heatsink.

I don't know what to do, except try it again, but if I don't know what I did wrong in the first place I don't know how that is going to change anything the second time.

Load temperatures are what matter.
post #4050 of 4653
got it stable i think... 3hours into prime95 out of target 5hours.

e5200 @ 300x12.5 = 3750MHz @ 1.32v (cpu-z says 1.28v?)
DRAM Frequency 400MHz @ 5-5-5-22 // FSB : DRAM 3:4

RealTemp:
Core temps idle - 37C/37C
Core temps 100% - 45-48C/45-48C
SpeedFan:
CPU temp idle - 39-40C
CPU temp 100% - 50-51C

I had it setup like this before but never went over 1.30v, seems the 0.02v difference has made it stable.

Any ideas for improvements?

Questions:
RealTemp reports the temps for each core - Is that what i should watch whilst monitoring temps OR is the SpeedFan's "CPU temp" a better indicator?

I've never seen Distance to TJ Max go below 55C.
What's my limit temp wise?

With an XFX HD4850 "XXX" edition @ 650/1050 i got disappointing results in 3DMark Vantage (trial) - sub 8000*.
Should i expect more?
*Is this an indication of poor system stability
?

Am actually in the process of returning the XFX card due to vertical line crashes that havent resolved despite my best efforts. Have a 5750 on order to replace it which will get upgrade sometime in the spring with a new PSU and a twin card for a CF configuration.

thanks all for the infos and advice!
