OC'ing a motherboard using software is a waste of time. It tends to raise voltages unnecessarily high causing excessive temps for no good reason. Either OC in the bios or run stock speeds. One should be ashamed to admit to using crap like that to OC on a forum like this.

Only reason I'm doing Evo is for stability tests without rebooting my computer every time. I figure that, as soon as it fails an IBT with the Evo setting, I'll go into the BIOS and put it to the lowest stable Vcore. I guess I should've explained myself a little more.

[EDIT: I do the overclocking in the BIOS, I lower the voltages in Evo to test for stability. Is it really that horrible to do? I mean, I'm not using their overclocking at all, I'm just lowering my Vcore with it.]

[EDIT 2: I was horribly misunderstood, it seems.]

That's okay. But I don't recommend doing it. What you set via software will NOT be what you will get by making the change in the bios. Basically, it's just a waste of time.

I figure a stable Vcore of 1.17V, as shown by CPU-Z and HWMonitor, should be alright then, I don't really feel like testing it even lower as the temperatures in Prime95 don't break 55C @ 3.33 GHz. BIOS setting, here we come!

[EDIT: Turns out that was the lowest value it was stable at, anyway. At least, it failed IBT at 1.16 but passed 50 runs at 1.17.]

I notice a lot of people have mounted these so that they blow air from the front of the case to the back of the case. I thought, with heat pipes, it is best to mount them in such an orientation such that it reduces the climb of the heat pipe fluid after it re-condenses. What I'm trying to say is that I got about a 3c drop after mounting my 212+ so that it blew air straight up, so that the heat pipes were horizontal.

I thought about doing that, but sleeve bearing fans, such as the 2 Yate Loons I'm using, wear out a lot faster if mounted horizontally rather than vertically.

That's why one should always try things different ways to determine what works best for them. There are very few absolutes when it comes to computers. With my case mounting it that way causes overall temps to INCREASE as I have a top mounted PSU. The PSU also runs quite a bit hotter that way which isn't good.

So I have this heat sink and was unimpressed with its performance. I come to find out that I totally bombed on the initial installation wit arctic 5. At 4ghz and IntelBurnTest my processor was reaching 90c

I just reseated the heat sink and think I got it right this time cause the temperature dropped by 12c-13c with the same tests. Anyway, never mind that, please take a look at these pics of what it looked like when removing the heat sink after my disgusting initial install,

Yep, heatsinks like these with exposed heat pipes require a completely different method of applying TIM than ones with a solid base. See http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...1&limitstart=5 for information on how to apply the TIM properly on this type. The bottom method seems to work the best for most people.

Those instructions are exactly what I followed this time around, def beat Arctic's official instructions for these type of heat sinks. I've noticed people are installing an extra fan on these coolers, can someone suggest which fan I should purchase? I could look through the thread but its 75 pages long now,

Nevermind,
