4.83ghz Now I just need to try and get it stable enough to bench on.
Very nice! glad to see you're getting some benefit out of the hard mod. You probably saw it already, but The Fox over at XS maxed out at 231 bclock on water after mod, but went up to 248 with some nice 2D benching on DICE.

What is the perfect length that the tubing needs to be???
1) Sometimes too long is worse than too short.
2) I find that I don't really like 7/16 ID 5/8 OD tubing much because the walls are so thin it kinks a lot. This is my preferred tubing by far.
Gary is the only one that carries it (that I've found), and it's expensive, but it saves me a lot of work.
3) Getting some form of anti-kink coils like these
really do a great job eliminating kinks on tight curves. Most watercooling shops have em, but you might need to shop around to get the diameter you need in the color you want.

I tried changing the block to 200 fight off the back and increasing the Vtt and Vcore +100 and that was a no go, the Foxconn overclock saftey thing stopped me.
i even tried leaving everything stock beside the bclock, which i raised to 150 and i got a BSOD about 10 minuites into windows...
What am i doing wrong? (running P08 bios)
Aside from Voltages, make sure you disable CXE under CPU functions if you haven't already.
When increasing Vcore and VTT, you will often have to bump up IOH voltage some.
Don't forget your RAM. Most triple channel DDR3 RAM really likes to be near 1.65v to run anywhere near posted speeds - or even if underclocked when the rest of the rig is overclocked.
I can't give you any number advice because my 920 is a C0 chip and needs significantly more volts than its D0 brethren. I've given it 1.7 vcore + to get what I need. BUT DON'T DO THAT.
Plenty of chips won't do bclock 200 on any board. My 920 needs +300 or more vcore and VTT to boot into Windows with bclock 200 on water.Edited by Patch - 7/24/09 at 5:36pm
