why is your HT link so low and I guess its true that the Phenoms like the cold better than voltage.

Is that bad for a cnps9700? You think maybe i didnt put on enough thermal grease?

Oh i managed to fix my prime95 issue at stock settings. Seems my ram (set to auto in BIOS) was running at 800Hz... stable when i forced it to 1067

BTW anyone have a chart that says what Ref. clock will give me 1067 ram freq?
My ram doesn't seem to work on ANY OTHER SETTING that 1067

Warfox, make sure this set of memory is at 2.1volts (stock)? Are you running in ganged or unganged mode?

Good luck

I have found that in the world of thermal grease, less and evenly distributed is better. When I took out my old stock HSF, I found that my CPU's IHS (internal heat sink the top of my cpu) was convex, or had a small 'hill' that prevented my cooler from fully contacting my cpu.

This may or may not be your issue. But if you do end up pulling it out, take a razorblade and place the edge on your cpu and the contact point of you cooler. with a light behind it, you can tell if you 940 has a 'dimple' like mine had. below is a couple of pictures showing what was causing my temp problem with my stock cooler and what happened when I 'lapped for flatness'


You can see where the dimple was in that rough stage of lapping. It was evident in the first 10 min of sanding.

The next photo shows how that 'hill' on my cpu affected the spread of the AC5 paste


When I was done, It took VERY little AC5 to get the job done because both surfaces were now flat.

BTW, I am totally new at this and got all of my knowledge from the guy's hear. Awesome community!

Lokepup01, looking good

Is the first image the result of a finished lap? Make sure the entire surface is completely lapped and down to the copper base. If the first image was just the beginning of your lap then please disregard my question

Good luck

Hmm thanks for the heads up guys i'll look into it further after work.

Ganged or unganged? I'm a bit confused by what you mean by this... i don't remember seeing a setting like this in my BIOS

No that photo was at 400grit. But I prescribed to the thought that a mirror finish wasn't as important than just getting it flat. Another thought came to mind is that the nickel plate was to prevent the galvanic effect that copper can have on aluminum. If you are just putting copper on copper then that isn't an issue but most factory heat sinks are aluminum, so to prevent over oxidation they put nickel on them to thwart this potential prob.

I stopped @ 1000 grit because I did not want to round off the edges (even though i used a lap kit, and was careful, it still seemed to be happening on this first attempt of mine)

so because of this, to answer your question, some thin trace of the nickel remained when I was done.

Nice temps, how did u manage to get those temps?

@Warfox:
In the BIOS go to: "advanced-> jumperfree conf. -> Memory conf. -> Dram Ganged Mode". Here you can set ganged or unganged.
