I've tried 1.500-1.55v, but maybe I'm doing it wrong?

I mean, I set everything to stock/auto and tried some things (too tired to mention, need to smoke some medication )

Are my temps too high, because my H50 may not be sitting well?


I'm too new to all this, and was hoping for an extra hand out on advise.

@54c? I don't think that's too high at all. What's the rated temp on these CPU chip?

Hand it over

I plan on having a lot of fun with this motherboard, and so far I'm having a breeze overclocking!

Are you able to hit 4Ghz? You state that your 965BE is a C3 stepping, so I don't see why it shouldn't hit 4Ghz. Also you're in a CM Scout Case which will help it a lot too as well. It provides plenty of air cooling.

Good luck!

Maybe mocha can delete this thread and xquisit can start a new official thread?

I'd like to discuss some things like NB and HT speeds, voltage and stability.

The problem is I can't hit 4.0ghz stable. I really haven't put too much effort into it, but it has me doubting my H50. My friend (owns a PC store & H50, but uses an intel bracket) applied the thermal paste the wrong way (possibly). He got the thermal paste, and used a business card to flatten it out all over the surface..and used the extra on the H50 (thermal paste was smeared on the CPU, and added to the H50 as well). I was wondering, if this wasn't a "you've hit a wall" problem... could it be my H50 was placed wrong (and when people use this term, do they mean placed wrong with thermal paste?)?

Great idea! I would like to as well!

Earlier, you state that you had this setting:

3.85ghz @ 1.45v

nb freq 2750

You know these chip can handle 1.55v right? And since you said you haven't put too much effort into it, might want to go around see what other people have. Maybe you can get tips from them. But I seriously think you have a bit of vcore left here. So might want to check with the NB voltages too as well.

Yeah, and that is my current set up. Only thing in my sig that is different from now is, my GPU clocks are at stock.

Was my H50 seated wrong? 53*C (55 highest) for load seems high (got this while Prime95 Small Torture testing after 6 hours).

This is how it was placed.

My friend did it:

Applied thermal paste, and flattened it out with a business card. Applied excess paste from card to the H50 (since paste was applied to the CPU).

I heard the paste isn't suppose to be spread, and it's suppose to spread from pressure after applying the H50 on the CPU.


Here's a teaser picture:
