Emersonsc, what kind of cooling results were you getting on air? Is it possible your block isn't completely flat? Perhaps it could be concave/convex? Have you tried lapping the IHS (integrated heat spreader)?

Good luck

Its possible. My vid cards seem to be running warm too. I almost wonder if i should be running two diff loops. I dont want to lap the CPU because its still under warranty

Hello All! Here's what I've come up with using a 940. It's a simple OC, and I'm not an expert but it is rock solid. Unfortunately if I touch the BUS it's about as stable as Paris Hilton in a Calc exam.

Finally after sleeping on it, i got the 3.8Ghz me and XxBeNigNxX were working so hard on. It seems to like the high multiplier vs the high bus speed. Thanks XxBeNigNxX for all your help and the rest of yas I really thought with an after market cooler i could get higher than this but I am still planning on trying new and different things. I am going to reboot and check my Bios settings to post the voltages, seems Overdrive is inaccurate. Woot! Happy OC'n..

18.5x206 ftw!

Well Done reficul

When you put the TIM on ....

How did you apply it?


Did you do it like this?

Before you make the thin lines you have to fill the gaps.
