Topless 3000+ & TEC - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
On my TEC the copper base doesn't overlap the socket. It's just as big as the processor itself. I read that in your other post so I checked it before I opened the lid.

Edit: I used AS Ceramiq because of the TEC. Should I use AS5? I heard that AS5 doesn't perform as well in subzero environments...

I probably saw a bigger drop because my V-Core is so high (1.7)

Edit Nevermind, your at 1.7 also. Are you sure you dont have too much AS-5

Edit No your useing the right stuff. Your probably at peak performance with that cooling set up.
Ide love to have thoes temps.

What p****s me off is that I got 2.6 Ghz on air. My mobo/processor don't like eachother. With the MSI Neo4's my stepping Winchester, CBBID, has the "219 bug" and other BIOS issues which won't let it post at a higher HT than 219 Mhz. I have to use clockgen to overclock, and not all of the memory dividers work. With Winchesters, 245 Mhz memory is about all the IMC can handle. Without the other dividers, I can't get any higher.

That's exactly why I did it I'm thinking of going to a 3800x2 Manchester some time soon, and putting this Winny in my sister's computer that I'm building for her.
