Just remember though this is a HDT (Heatpipe Direct Touch) cooler so it's a tad different from the conventional cooler. I'm pretty sure the surface of a HDT cooler cannot be lapped and if it is you can't lap it very much. I also believe the TIM application is slightly different.

Good luck
Very true. Lapping is generally not recommended since it can really damage the heat pipes if done incorrectly, or even by accident. TIM application is slightly different. Along with applying it to the CPU, I also put small amounts on and in between the heat pipes themselves. I'd say it's working pretty well for me, too. 28°/35° at 3.9GHz/1.425v and 30°/38° at 4.0GHz/1.475v.

my overclocking is only stable @ 3.9 if I run 2.1 volts on my ram which Is the highest recommended voltage for my ram so I don't know if it's a good idea to go passed 2.1...
My friend wants to buy my current ram so I'm thinking of putting a little extra and getting 1066 thanks think3r

hi my mobo if set to auto sets them to -2% not 0%...

would it be bad to go overbaord and do -14% or 14% for ACC settings??

Sleeping Giant, wow those are some pretty impressive numbers! What is your room ambient temperature?

Jinny1, good question. Personally I have not tested "ACC" so I am not sure what kind of issues may arise with running a higher percentage. Perhaps someone can enlighten us?

Good luck guys

That would be with the A/C pumpin' at 77° Fahrenheit. Temps will jump 2-3° when the A/C isn't running with the room temp at around 80° or so.

Sleeping Giant, that is still pretty darn good in my opinion. The lower TDP with just two cores probably helps out a lot too

hey for ocing only with multupliers...you only need to take into consideration/raise the cpu vcore right?? if it is unstable. (providing ur other volts are at their optimal level)

but for ocing with ref clocks as well do you need to raise NorthBride VID along with Vcore and memory voltage?? are there any other ones to think about

1066 ram won't really do much for you with the AMD cpus. It won't run 1066 by default, you would have to manually set it at that. I think in most benchmarks that i've seen. The 800 memory with tighter timings seem to do alot better than 1066 at looser timings. ie: 800 at cas 4 vs 1066 at cas 5..... i have 1066 memory and i saw virtually no difference...so i run mine at 800...

Thanks, I decided to keep my 800 ram...
Quick question..
Is any one here giving more volts to the memory to get a higher oc on the CPU?
What I mean is my ram runs at 1.8-2.1 under warranty...
Is it safe to take it to 2.2?
Not really worried bout my warranty just don't want my whole system like my motherboard etc to fry just bec I pushed my ram a little
thanks guys
