Look at you, Mr. Fancy. I used three toothpicks per heatsink to get the TIM off and use 90% alcohol to clean the rest. Used a paper towel, too. XD

Oh, I use Everest Ultimate now. Apparently it shows the CPU temperature even though I have ACC enabled. Funnily enough, the temperature corresponds with "Temp1" in Speedfan and "TMPIN1" in AOD. Just a little note for future reference.

You are correct,in a way,it does give you extra bandwidth,what i was trying to explain is theres no point using HTT overclocking if your running your ram below spec,ie 1600 running at 1376,unless you are able to run very low timings,and the op was using very high votages on his NB,CPU-NB,CPU,and the C2's not handling ram as good as C3's,that's what i was getting at,LOL!!!

Guys,

Alittle off topic. i recently picked up a 965 C3 and im amazed at how well its doing, straight of the bat im already 4.0Ghz, 2800Nb (no cold boot issue), 2600Htt, DDR3 OCZ Plat 1600Dc 9-11-11-24 1T, CPU v1.42, NB-CP v1.36 and the rest auto.

Before the 965 i had a 955 C2 and highest overclock i could get was stable 3.8Ghz on air and my NB would only be 2600 anything past it would not boot. Im using current bios v1.9, as soon as i stuck the 965 in straight away i went to 3.8Ghz and thought that was simple let me open her up then to 4.Ghz and increased the NB and HTT and fingers crossed on cold boot to which she boots everytime.

I must have alittle gem on my hand, i thought no problems in windows so i tried a few intensive games eg GTA IV, COD MW1&2, Bioshock 2, Dead Space and shes eating them alive.

I feel so happy that my rig is achieving what it can i have noticed once you overclock to range i have it feels more zippier then normal, oh by the way all on vista64 Ultimate.

I just thought i share this. Wooooooooooooooooooooowhoooooooooooooooooo

Glad your rig runs without trouble. I have some cold boot issues, I think they involve my RAM, though. Any suggestions?

I dont know, to be honest all i did was swap the processors and overclocked straightaway, its wierd i ramped the nb in bios using the multi and htt and processor the same way added alittle voltage as i said before tested thourghly.

I then shut down, however the psu on switch is always left on, waited a couple of hours and then switched her on, and bang she booted straighaway, it must be with CPU why this cold boot issue happens anything at 2600 will boot its when your going for 2800 it doesnt for most people and me until i got a 965 C3 most recently.

Sorry i cant help, im just glad this baby is kicking ass. i was thinking of getting a 5970, then thought im not paying those prices instant rip off, i heard the 300 is way better, im gonna wait a while and see if the GD80890FX is any good as i see a complete overhaul with mobo, hdd, graphic card i suppose the CPU, ram, PSU and soundcard can stay

I think it's the fact that it's C3, they seem to OC better than C2.

Could be right, only thing is when i was running 955 c2, my ram was the same, only thing difference was i was getting 3.8Ghz, nb 2600 and htt 2400, how ever if restarted my pc and changed the nb 2800 and htt 2600 it would work fine, only problem if i powered down, would not boot.

Seems very wierd.

I think some people on here are confusing the HT and the HTT,the HTT is what AMD now call the FSB,the HT is the HT link speed,and the new C3 stepping cpu's have a revised IMC for better ram compatibility as apposed to the older C2 stepping,and the older C2 965 TDP being 140w,C3 being 125w,hope this is'nt too confusing.

My bad, i mean the ht not the htt. guys is there anything out there that can tell me the cpu model number and recivison id etc. etc, its too late now to look at the processor physically as its under the heatsink amd i rather not remove it too much hassel. i do however still have the box, would it tell me on there or any other piece of software.

The OPN number on the top of the box gives you the model number,ie HDZ965FBGMBOX,the (GM)denotes C3 125w TDP revision,as apposed to (GI),which denotes C2 140w TDP revision.
