Opti 170 heat issue solved , I think.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
After browsing quite a few forums and post it seems my temps 45c-47c idle and 50c-52c load are not that bad really. Something was still bugging me about it though so I rechecked the heatsink and noticed that it was pretty easy to turn. This being my first 939 build I just looked at the instruction book and clamped the opti heatsink lever to the inside of the last bracket. After giving it some further thought I went back. Sure enough when I lifted that lever to the outside of the last bracket pressed it down a bit further it locked
in nice and snug.
Seems to me I can't be the only one that has made this mistake . AMD needs to update those booklets for us noobs. Overclocked to 2.33ghz will probably go for 2.5ghz
39c idle and 45c load.
FSB 233mhz x 10
SB to NB 233 HTTx4
Mem CLK 233mhz
vcore 1.31v Should I feed it more volts? How low is too low?
AS5 has not been burnt in, so I hope to get that temp down a few more degrees.

Thanks for your time.
