I think with this board and just a small amount of tweeking I hit about 260 stable. Could be a hole there but I was just messing around.

I never used the DK on my 720/GD70, however I did use a lapped Thermaltake Big Typhoon on it, and from my testing on my 939's, the DK and the BT perform the same on non lapped CPUs'. However, the BT does perform better on lapped CPUs' since it has a MUCH smoother finish than the DK.

On that Big Typhoon I used the fan off of the Dk which was 30 CFM better at stock, 89 CFM vs 59CFM (and looked a hell of a lot better too), with my lapped 720 OC'd to 3.6 @ 1.488v, NB @ 2600, RAM @ 1600 (7-7-7-21-1T), I never saw temps over 52C and that was with the fan plugged up with cat hair. Typically it idled @ ambient temps (~23C) and loaded at 45C.

At any rate, the dark knight is a good cooler however any air cooler will be hindered by high ambient temps. But wait.....it's winter over there isn't it.
yes it is starting to get cooler around here. Over summer i had the side panel off the pc and an extra 80mm fan on top of my red scorpion cooler just to keep it in the green lol...i so need a better pc case, this antec P160w isnt that great for air flow. Problem with most of the xigmatek coolers is that you can't mount them left to right, only up and down with AMD boards which suck because if you have in my case a front fan at the bottom of the case and one at the top back of the case it doesnt allow the air to pass thru the case effiently.

That's exactly why I used the Big Typhoon. It sits high enough off of the board to where it doesn't restrict airflow, not to mention it works as a secondary intake since it pulls in air from the side of the case. And orientation doesn't matter because the fan is blowing at the board which also helps keep the VRM's and NB cool. I didn't replace the paste on the NB on my board and I never had a temperature issue.

If you can find one over there for cheap, and lap it, the Big Typhoon is a great cooler.

Too bad you're not in the states. You can buy a refurnished BT for <$20 shipped.

Here are pictures of when I ran my 347 FSB OC back in January. I didn't know too much about the board's settings back then, since it was before I joined this forum, so here are a few suggestions that are different from the pictures.

C1E Support:disabled (found in Advanced BIOS>CPU Feature)
CPU PLL voltage: 2.6V
CPU-NB voltage : 1.26V
Bank Interleaving: Disabled (found in Advanced DRAM Configuration)

Let me take some pictures and I'll post them up in a bit. Currently running stock settings ever since I've reverted back to BIOS version 1.4.

Edit: So here they are, again I suggest you go to Advanced BIOS>CPU Feature and disable C1E support. Also, the voltages are a bit higher than required, but I'll provide a list for lower voltages below the pictures.
P.S.- Sorry some pictures are blurry since they just came from my phone.








CPU voltage: 1.48V
CPU-NB voltage: 1.43V
CPU PLL voltage: 2.55V
CPU DDR-PHY voltage: Auto
RAM voltage: 1.9V-1.95V (these are my rated voltages)
NB voltage: 1.33V-1.4V
NB PCI-E voltage: Auto
NB PCI-E I/O voltage: Auto
HT Link voltage: Auto
SB voltage: Auto
Spread Spectrum: Disabled
RAM: 1600mhz (rated speed)
HT-Link speed: 3000mhz (you can choose to put it down to 1800mhz or 2100 mhz)

These settings are NOT Prime95 stable with BIOS version 1.4, but was stable with 1.10B2/1.10B5. However, they will work for gaming/benchmarks and I consider that stable. My last advice for you is to slowly increase your settings to match mine, so you can find your most stable spot and work from there. Good luck!

Windows Experience Index:

Processor: 7.5
Memory: 7.9
Graphics: 7.7
Gaming graphics: 7.7
Primary hard disk: 5.9

I just had to RMA my GD70 because the audio failed and it was extremely unstable. MSi was kind enough to let me pay for the shipping to California (from Ohio).
