Just so you know the core on the inside of the metal heatspreader on the cpu is only a fraction of the total area the cooler will touch. Yes having pockets is not good but as long as the core is still making contact then you should be fine.

Also in my experience, I've never actually witnessed AS5 drop in temps after the cure time. I believe it is more gradual that from 1-200 hours it drops the temps gradually.

What are your average temps right now?

Right now 35 38 38 37, but i was just playing a game. My friend got AS5 under his heatsink, and it did gradually improve the temps, on the first day after install he idled 42, now he idles 38 ish

About the core, thats good to know, thanks a lot.

lol i was planning to do exactly that right after i bought new fans. Cant decide between GTs an Yate Loons. u know i want the cooling setup to be complete before i try to get 4.0ghz

Though both of those fans gt my seal of approval I would go ahead and try for it.

Skinne Labs found that dual GT's($30 of fans) is only 2c cooler then stock corsair fan in pull. I wouldn't buy GT's unless I thought I was going for a real loop later. Otherwise go with Medium yates, there cheap, affective, and look arguably better then GT's(unless your into painting fans.) Overall I'm pretty sure you will get the OC you want with great temps especially on that CPU.

sweet thanks for the encouragement. I plan to go full water cooling after im done university, so in 5 years or so, to long to actually matter. Yate loons it is.

Thanks BC.

Earlier when the H50 was being a bugger, it COULD have been a grounding problem. As one of the steel inserts worked itself out(no downward pressure is good) and had spun a nice little bare spot in the tray. No paint and no grey powder coat remained. But I pulled the MoBo back up and fixed both issues. Good thing I have a paint that handles metals. I love my Rustoleum.

Anyway I swapped out the H50 and am using the stock cooler. Tried running 8 Gigs of Corsair RAM and still wouldn't post. I've swapped out the 955 BE(thought maybe I took the lapping too far) for an Athlon II, with no positive results. So the 955 BE went back in place. Then just a bit ago I glommed onto my Bros 8 Gig set of Ripjaws, thinking that maybe it is RAM. Shelved the 8 Gigs of Dominators and tried that. Nope still would not make it past DRAM, leading me to believe that it's not GPU as the light never gets that far with 8 Gigs.

So I'm down to 2 options. PSU and Drivers. Considering I've posted with both my HDDs', I'm just going to omit those for the time being. I may have to undervolt my GPU for a short time to see if I can get the system to Post with my 500w OCZ, kind of wish I had a cheap PCIE GPU on hand but my bro is running onboard on his system so about the only thing I can do is swap it over to his system and try firing it up and see what happens. I really hope that it's drivers.

I apologize if I covered everything before hand other than the RAM, I'm just working out the ole mental chops to see if I missed anything. Before anyone asks... YES, I did indeed check all connections for breaks at the connectors.

This is starting to sound like a bad ground issue "with mobo and case" and being how the mobo was RMA'ed have you tried to take everything out of your case and bench testing the system on a cardboard box? I've seen stranger things happen.

Just a option to check off and save a few strands of hair



EDIT:

The more i think about it if it was a grounding issue it shouldn't matter if the case was standing or laying down.

Back to the drawing board?

I'm thinking your stand offs are creating a problem. I have seen people swap identical mobos in the same case and have grounding issues that will stop a computer from posting thats why i suggested pulling everything out of the case and testing. I know its a pain in the arse but hey.

This all started after you got your new mobo from a RMA right?
A bad ground has been known to have the ability to temporarily knockout ram slots.

Nope, it was the reason the Board was RMA'd. I had checked my sticks in the 1st slot. It powers up with 2 in the 1st two slots. Which shouldn't happen anyway and wouldn't happen if it was a simple grounding issue. At least I don't believe that it would cause slots to jump frequencies. Not in my experience it doesn't anyway. And which has me thinking MoBo BIOS issue.
