Here are the pics on how one member did it.

You simply can not cut so deep as to contact the memory chips... those little rectangular things spaced around the CPU.

Seems like its hard to put on a clip-on air cooling heat sink without crushing the cpu.

How were you able to do it Sid?

lol, sid? Meh...you can call me Mark if you like.

What I did was I unscrewed the mounting bracket and used 400grit sandpaper. I laid it flat on a hard surface and I used the technique commonly used for lapping a heatsink to shave off a small amount of material on the bottom of the bracket. I sanded in a circular motion then rotated 90 degrees, repeat, repeat...until after test fitting I made good contact with the core. I then did a couple of test fits with AS5. After I was sure everything worked I screwed the bracket down nice and tight, then I push the heatsink on. I held the heatsink in place, while I clipped on the clips with my fingers. ALternated clips (like tightening a cylinder head/tire).

Any other quesions feel free to ask.

OH, hells ya!

I raised the FSB up 5 Mhz last night for an overall 290x10. 2610 Primed for 9 hours last night while I slept. This was not possible before, but it's totally stable now. I went to 295, but no dice. I just brought the ram up to the 166 divider, so the ram is running at 237 right now. Hopefully it'll move way up and get closer to the FSB....I hate huge dividers!

Anyways, chock up 45Mhz to removing my IHS (maybe more later)

Yup. Probably that. I had the same deal with my 3500+ not going over 2651. This thing won't go over 2610.

I think I'm getting a new PSU next week, so hopefully it'll help rather than hurt my overclock. Lmao.

Failed prime at 180 divider. Looks like I'm gonna be using the 166 divider....

Will prime this for 8+ hours while I'm at work today.

Give Memtest a shot, it'll tell you what's up. It's a small ISO that you burn to a disk and it'll run tests that will tell you whether your RAM is stable or not. Ideally, let it run for 2 passes.

Lol. Memtest is built into my mobo actually...

I have established that my ram is stable up to 300FSB and slightly beyond. I know for a fact it's not the memory. This is a problem with either the Opteron's memory controller, with my PSU not supplying both enough power at the same time, or the mobo just being a piece of crap.
