If I fold on both cards, the NB can hit 60c and the motherboard will almost hit 40c.

You guys/gals will laugh, it was about 20f (-6 to -7c) today, so I brought the rig outside and fired her up.
I hit 4503Mhz @ 10-12c, the NB was about 33c and the mobo was about 6-7c.

I was able to benchmark around 4250~, don't remember exactly where it was, but I'm going to do it again next time there's some real cold weather (like this weekend! ). I'll see what I can get for a 3dmark06 and Vantage score, maybe the cold'll help.

Next time I might leave it out there for about an hour before I fire her up, see how cold I can get the water first and go straight for a max clock validation.

DO IT! I do ever year, and when that is not enough for me I crank up the chiller!

EDIT: Quick question. Anyone know what to do about HT Sync Flood errors due to high NB clock? Everytime I go to 3Ghz or higher I get occasional HT Sync Flood errors.
Did you try and increase in HTL Volts or Raising the the HTL itself above 2Ghz.

Okay, I'm hitting about a degree above that with AS5 and it's only a Day old Seat! How many 120mm Fans LONG is your Radiator MDUCLOW?

I'm too lazy to take mine outside... LOL

Last night I was sippin on few cocktails (100 proof Captain and Dr. Pep.) and went for kind of a suicide run... Check these out!? Nothing big, they're only Validations. I wish they were stable.

My rad is only a 240, 2x120mm (in case you needed me to explain that!) How much better do you think a 360 would be? I not using the 120 that came with the kit, I was thinking of using it for the gpu's when i get water blocks for them. But, if I got a 360, then maybe I would use the 240 for the gpu's.

I think my chip is only 'ok' on clocking. I have to run about 1.485v to get 4Ghz stable (@ about 44c~ loaded), and I think it runs hotter than other, better batches.

Got it. I have a 120mm Rad. With 2x 2000rpm @ 110CFM Scythes in P/P And I idle at 30*C.@1.425v @ 4Ghz. 1.275v (1.29v in everest. ???) on CPU-NB @ 2800Mhz. That'sa good idea about saving the 240mm for the Cards when you get a 360! Soot you got 4.5Ghz, it can't be that bad, regardless of the location while running that. Justt he fact that it can hit says good things. There's guys over at XS running 4.6 on air!?!?!? WTH?

I need to get a larger Rad. 120mm works fine for my CPU and Ram but I could NOT add my Card(s) [when I get a 2nd one]. Heck these VAPOR-X's Card run so darn cool I probably would'nt need to put them on water... 35*C at idle. 55% fan.

I am questioning the validity of that comment...with the voltage i am running i'd expect things to be a bit hotter

I wonder if the chip process can play a big part on the end result of your temps

I think your chip's better than mine. I can't get 4Ghz stable with anything less than 1.485v, and for the NB I have to run at least about 1.425v CPU-NB with 1.3+ on the core (for 2.8Ghz). I'm also using four 90cfm fans in a push pull, granted everything is in the case, and therefore subject to the case heat (case temp is usually about 30-38c), but I just don't think this chip is as good as others out there.

Have you tried running the Rad outside of the case at all? Just to see the Difference in temps?

I haven't. But, temps really aren't my issue. I've tried as high as 1.55v on the core and temps still stayed under 50c.

Besides, I like having everything inside the case, nice and neat, you know?

And, btw, I haven't tried increasing the HT link past 2Ghz (about the HT Sync Flood errors), I always have it somewhere under that. I'm going to try raising it and see what happens when I'm on the higher NB clocks.

hey guys, I need a favor. If any of you guys have a broken 940pin am2/am3 board I really really really really need it! I need to see if I can swap sockets out of it. or atleast the white outter part of the socket.

You are having the same problems i have after 4Ghz really...i think its a combo of things making that happen but not the actual CPU voltage.
