It's not that hard. The covers are held on by double sided tape, and the heat pipe will come out if you twist and pull.

And as for as the mch core goes, Noguru told me to set that. What would you recommend at 3.8? I'm very stable now after running over 20 runs of ibt at high priority, and i ran 3dmark '06 and got just under what i have in my sig @3.83...that was in xp which is optimized for gaming.

Like i said, i tried different multi's loosening ram timings, vcore, mch and nothing worked at 4ghz. I almost borked my win install. 1.4 vcore was probably what blew out the activation update. I still can't believe an oc effort would blow out a freakin win update! And just that one.

I'm finished. I'm rock steady at 3.8 ghz and I'm leaving everything where it is. I might take Noguru advise and remove those dumbass blue covers on the heatsinks. I can't believe someone would put covers on them to literally block airflow to the hs fins. Gotta be one of the dumbest designs i ever seen, especially on such a nice mobo.

I have 3 120mm intake case fans on the side and 4 exhaust, so i have nice airflow. Temps never went over 64c ibt load. I want this chip to last a while, so i don't want to give it as much as it can handle.

So now i don't know who to believe about the mch core...you or Noguru? I'm a i overvolting the mch needlesly? Noguru, what do you think about this? Not wanting to create any conflicts, here, I just feel like I'm getting mixed messages now.

Well my E0 took 1.28 for 4.2 GHz and 1.30 for 4.5 stable. Now for benching, just to get a high validation, really high MCH will work. I think I used like 1.48 or maybe more to get to 4.95 GHz. But for 24/7 at 3.8, 1.26 to 1.28 should be plenty.

Personally no matter what everyone else is running once I am 100% stable at a certain spot I want to run 24/7 I will lower each voltage and test until I find the lowest v for each setting..

Thanks, Noguru...i think I'll just leave it where it is, since it seems happy happy joy joy now...lol. I'll pry those lids of the hs's later. I gave you, Pizzaman and LSD rep+, but i didn't see your #'s change. Do you need more than one rep hit for it to change?

No prob. IDK what's wrong with the rep button, I''m not worried about it.

Just bought a 5850 WOOT! MORE BENCHIES!

Hey guys got this board about a week ago, just got around to installing windows today, I put in the Win7 disk, but every time I'm just getting:
Boot from Cd/Dvd:
Disk boot failure, Enter system disk and press enter.

My Cd-Rom is set to first boot, It's connected as master, I tried optimal bios, and the fail safe, defaults, but nothing seems to be working.
The cd driver was from my other computer that I'm upgrading from, and its recognized in bios, I don't know what to do here, Could y'all point me in the right direction?

No its easy, as Noguru said just give the pipe a little twist and it will slide right out. When pulling the cover some guys recommend heating it a bit but I dont bother, I just pull it off.
