How long until you get it in?

You're going to love it, though I am not sure about that foxcon board. I don't know much about them, or your model specifically, but some people have seemed to have problems with them on the boards. Check it out before you open it up or it ships...

If you are pushing your voltage past 1.4v to achieve 3.0Ghz, you either are pushing it to high to fast, or you have a problem with your voltage. Always check your mobo's HW monitor to see what it says the voltage is, then find a program that reads the same (or very close, several programs with similar readings for confirmation is best).

Same goes for temperatures, check them in bios, then find several programs that give similar readings. If you are above 40c at idle, you either have a bad cooling setup, or a bad reading.
I'm at stock with after market cooling (Zalman) and I have good thermal paste, and I'm running at 45 idle core temp. ***!!?!
How can I find out if my readings are wrong ? both speedfan and everest are saying the same thing. The bios is also reading pretty high temps similar to the apps.

Do you know of any software to read NB CPU and NB SB voltages? I want to see what the auto are on my board before I start tweaking them.

Turns out my bios was reading about 6 degrees hot, so I get a little more room to play with at this point.

And yes, I read the stickies. Its a lot of good information so definitely make sure you READ them, not just skim them.
How did you find out your readings were 6 degrees too hot?

My parts are in town and on the truck! Hopefully not too much longer, but I'm doing some research in the meantime. Thanks for the encouragement and the reason I got the foxconn was the great reviews, (and plenty of them). All my parts were picked with budget/reliability in mind but they are also upgradable. I do plan on upping my vid card to like a 9800gt, gtx, etc, in the future. I know that may take a bigger psu and maybe a differ mobo. Well thanks guys.

What I had to do was actually take a thermometer and measure the temperature of the chip. I did it while in the process of changing from stock CPU cooling to my Xigmatek. In that case I had to get it hot so the thermal paste would let the cooler go. I booted it up, started orthos (with the fan unplugged but the cooler still attached) wiggled it until it came off, quickly wiped off some excess thermal pasted and used an infrared thermometer to quickly take a few readings (while my monitoring sotware was open) before shutting it back down. If you are having issues with heat then some kind of installation error on your cooler could be at fault. You should also pay attention to which way the fan is blowing on your CPU cooler, and make sure you turn the smart CPU fan control off for 100% fan speed all the time.

Another one that a lot of people forget is cable management. If you have a bunch of wires mucking up the air flow than you will read hot for sure.

hm that sounds out of my capability really.
How important is it to use proper thermal grease remover?
When I got this cpu I just cleaned the surface of my zalman with water and tissue.
I've ordered some remover so should be here in a couple of days, but am I likley to see my temps drop from where they are now (50 idle with 1.328 v) to something like 40 idle?

Also with 1.328v I should be able to set things to 200 x 15 right?
When I do that I get a blue screen after runnign orthos for about 1 minute :s
I know my ram is ok to hit the 4-4-4 i've set it to as I've had it like that before stable.
I've isolated each part, My top fsb is 230 and my highest multi as 16.5 so setting it to 15 x 200 should be easy,
i'm confused

I run that and the gigabyte equivalent.
That foxconn board overclocks great.
actually like it better than most of the others Ive had.
It gives you just as many options as the big name boards, offering a very stable overclock.

First thing I would do is reinstall your fan cooler. You can clean off the thermal paste with some 90% alcohol so I have been told. Make sure you follow the instructions exactly.

As for the OC you've done half the work. Now you need to incrementally adjust your system testing along the way and raising one setting at a time.

My chip HATED it when I just plugged in large numbers and reboot. If I go up 25-40 mhz (on the total clock speed) at a time with my ram underclocked then I get much better results. Once my CPU/mobo are stable THEN I will worry about the ram, but you really have to do it systematicly and methodically to get the fastest possible stable overclock.
