are you sure thats only reading the small partition denny coz that looks about the same as mine on the whole disk.

great speeds tho arent they for a 1 platter harddisk and they run cool too
My understanding is it reads the whole disk for the test even tho it is shortstoked,but I may be wrong. AC will be along soon,he is the resident expert on harddrives. he will let us know. It seems to be pretty fast on the "read" -much more than the old Seagate. It is only a little faster on access time than the old drive

Hmm... is 75C safe for Q8200? I saw the intel specification for Q8200 and it states 73C. Can I up up to 80C? How significant will the lifespan of Q8200 decrease?

Too hot...try reseating your cooler maybe?

that makes sense

yea the seek time will be about the same as they are both 7.2k rpm and the drive heads can only move so fast but its the reads that matter.

stew it sounds like it might be throttling itself m8, 1st off are you sure its fitted right? and what vcore and speeds are you running too?

Yea I will reseat it. I checked the way to apply thermal paste for Dark Knight. It seems that conventional method won't work. You will have to put thermal paste in the gaps of the heatpipes.

Anyway, I doubt the temp will decrease much. For some strange reason, my Q8200 idles at 56-58C and goes up to 70 on load and its not overclocked yet.

yea you need to fill the gaps, only downside to dhc coolers no flat base.

thats hot that man, whats the vid/vcore?

Well, I haven't fill the gaps yet since I didn't know I have to. I only placed a BB-sized thermal paste at the middle. Will do it tomorrow.

Anyway, I set my Vcore to 1.2550v, shows 1.168v in Windows and 1.152v on load in Windows. All the other voltages are set to normal instead of auto. Currently overclocked my Q8200 from 2.33GHz to 2.59GHz. Temps on load is 72C when running Intel Burn Test.

Strange thing is my temp doesn't increase much still remain about 72C even though I increased the FSB.

Was running Crucial Ballistix Tracers and my E6750 OC'd on my GA-P35-DS3L. North Bridge went *BOOM* and I'm getting a new board.

Friend's selling me their EP45-UD3P so I'm probably going to get it and work around with my OC. Also got an Antec SpotCool for my North Bridge as I'm running Water on everything (Using 3/8 Inner, 5/8 Outer Tubing so cooling my North Bridge with my current setup is going to be...Eugh).

Will post my results here. My Old OC was 3.46GHz from a 2.66GHz E6750, and 960Mhz Ram with my OCZ Gold XTC Crap. Tried to work with my Crucial Ballistix and my North Bridge failed on me, so yeah.

n1 ria welcome to the club if your running water on that 67 i can see you doing better than 3.46ghz in a ud3 m8

stew the gaps between the pipes where the air pockets are will stop the heat transfering so change the paste as soon as you can m8. seems the best way is to use a thin paste like ocz freeze or ac ceramique and spread it with a credit card or such across the cooler base.

thinker pastes like mx2/3 and ac5 might give better results but are a pita to get a good application.

Temps will stay the same until there is a significant change in specs, as there hasn't been yet. Do not run Intel burn test until you reseat your cooler. Do small lines of paste in the gaps will do.

You will not have to worry about the NB overheating on this board. One thing I might suggest if you plan on doing some extreme overclocking is to remove the blue plates that come on the MOSFETS and NB so air can move over them better.
