Removing oxidation from copper isn't too difficult. Here's one set of instructions. I suggest you skip step 6.

The trouble is not all Heatsinks can have its fan easily removed from the device.

By the way, what sort of metal is the heatsink that comes with the Intel CPU?

That depends. I have seen four types so far, with sockeet 775 ranging from Core2Duos and Core2Quads. Most common C2Q stock HS is SS and square. It has a rough finish and 80mm fan mounts sorta crooked. Another one I've seen is square with copper rod down the middle, fused together. I liked this one the best since it uses bolts rather than push-pin. The other two is the most common, which is round. They range in thickness, and one I've seen uses a copper rod down the middle. The fans though, even in max speed, is relatively low speed.

The cores temperature hover around 24,25,26,27. Room temperature is around 20 degree though. Have you used this feature?
Yes. I've played around with SPEEDSTEP, but the problem is, while it DOES cut down on multi to reduce CPU speed, unless you've set your vCore on AUTO, it does not reduce your vCore. OC settings and SpeedStep (C1E) does not play well together, so I just leave mine off. I am sure that by reducing CPU speed, it should reduce temps by a bit.

Have you tried the modded BIOS yet? Most people find better stability or higher OC with it compared to stock. I think he adds more RAM compatibility and some other settings which everyone claims to work really well. I am using his 1406 BIOS right now, but I think there is a new one out. You should check it out.

i wouldnt say that its stable unless you pass intel burn test

8 mins of that test is like stressing 40 hrs on prime95..

Yea... I know. There are actually easier way to do it, but requires more money. My only thing is though, I don't want to have to remove my HS every couple of months just to clean it. It's a pain (just because I am very particular about the way I apply TIM), and it's a waste. Also, my bottleneck right now is my CPU and not my temps. I can push higher if I want to, but to achieve 4x4 (4Ghz x 4Cores), I need to push my voltage to 1.53v, which I am not very comfortable doing. I need to sell this Q6600 and get a QX, but I think I will wait and get i7 instead. Thanks though.

Who said anything about stability?

Plus, although there are debates about what system is stable and what isn't, you opinion on stability certainly is extreme. First of all, Intel Burn Test was designed to test systems that are not overclocked, and at stock. Second of all, I don't know anyone or any situation that would require you to run your PC on full load for 40 hours straight. Third, I run my computer 24/7 and only reboot after install of new drivers, softwares, or BIOS updates. I only tested my computer for stability using 24 hours of PRIME95 and 12 hours of OCCT, but it hasn't failed me yet. But your opinion is greatly appreciated.

For BF2142, the trick is to access the console by hitting ~

then typing this

game.lockfps 0

I can guarentee ur FPS will go up.

Its capped at 100 otherwise ^_^

Hi GoHigh and everyone

First of all, wishing you all a Happy Christmas!

I have good news!!

I can tell you that Silent Knight II is a success. The money is well spent despite this is not the one I originally intended to get, which was Tuniq Tower. Because of its height and the limitation of my case which is a nuisance, I was forced to make the decision of getting Silent Knight II. Nevertheless it works well than I expected. How well?

For stock speed, idle temperature is around 30. This is a bit high than the stock heatsink comes with the CPU. I am using Arctic cooling and I spreaded the compound evenly over the CPU surface, please let me know if I have done it right.

after playing games like COD5, BF2 and a flight simulation, the maximum temperature peaks at around 45. BUT, this is also with CE1 Enabled which in fact doesn't give me a "genuine" frame rate. Anyhow...


For overclock @ 3.6GHz (9 x 400), Playing BF2, COD5 and a flight simulation, with C1E off, idle temperature is 35-35-36-33 and peak temperatures are 57-55-52-50. And the frame rates are very good.

Could you possibly tell me which program I can use to test the cores at 100% load? Also, I have observed that Core#3 always has the lowest temperature compared to others, is theresomething wrong?

And with these peak temperatures, what is the lifespan of this Q6600 that I own?

Gentlemen what do you reckon, the Silent Knight II fan is doing a constant 2800rpm. I also added 2 4800rpm 80mm fans to the rear of the case to help ventilating the air from Silent Knight II. The system booted up very noisy for the 1st 5 seconds then thanks to QFan, the fans quiet down to something acceptable.

Intel Burn Test if you wanna test it all out.
With those temps should last a very long time ^_^
And variation in the cores is normal.
