Thanks for that link, Bodycount. I read it over and it's got all the stuff I wanted to know. Now all I need is a starting point to go from. lol

I'll get a couple shots up, bakageta, but it looks fine to me. All I have working atm is a camera phone, but itll get the job done.

Well, these are the pictures. Am I missing anything?

Also, Does the way you put on the thermal compound on an i7 effect the performance that much? I mean I know I've seen people argue over "pea vs line" stuff, but I didn't think it would be a double digit degree difference.

Gonna go try the starting point xmiserys gives in GuardDawg30's link.


BTW, how hot would this heatsink get if connected right? I touched it while it was going and it wasn't hot, not cold either. It was slightly warmer than my hand but just barely.

Edit: Ok, so.. I go into bios with my handwritten list of every setting. I can't find 1/3 of the settings. I figure "this will never work. *sets the 2/3 of settings i can find*" ofcourse, it failed. throws me into a loop when trying to boot. Never see windows. So I'm frustrated, and say "Hell, lets see what Dummy OC gives me." It gives me 3.2Ghz, 20x multiplier (i hear thats bad, but for the sake of testing with dummy i cant change it) and I'm idling at 67-69. I run prime 95, i shoot up TO 95. So, either its a bad chip or more likely I installed the heatsink poorly.

You need to get some decent fans on that heatsink. Running it passive and overclocking isn't a good idea.

Oh wow, I totally didn't catch that... Yep, that's likely the problem. They're definitely not designed to be ran passively.

Nothing looks wrong with the mounting from the pictures, at least to me... Compare them to pics here and here, from this review.

Sub'ed
No fans? Yes fix that and add some in a push/pull if you have the room.

Heading out to a BBQ in a min But while i'm gone start out with finding the VID of your particular cpu each is different and unique. This link will tell you how to find the VID of a i7.

http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...explained.html

+Never overclock with you vcore set to auto as it can and will run amok and go well over spec.

Just popping in to check this thread, I'll check that link in the morning. But, I've got 2 180mm fans pushing air straight on it (1 of the 3 is out of the way) and 1 120mm fan right on top of it pulling it away. Airflow isn't a problem I don't think, it's movin a lot over it.

On a side note, as I think I mentioned, I can touch the heatsink at full load and feel almost no heat.

Keep in touch with me Error Lord, As i will show you the light or try to anyway
We just have to take it slow and by the book if you want to do it right.
I'm sorry to say but overclocking takes alot of time and patience but in the end it is very much worth it.

Quick Example:

When you go to the store and buy a cpu your not buying a specific speed but just what intel rated that speed as reliable when tested. The love of overclocking comes from being able to change that speed safetly and reliably for better speeds.


Edit:

We have the same system. Soon to be exact "Well somewhat"
