I vacuumed that all up and now she's running at 4.0gHz (1.296v ht on) < 67c with prime 95. I can't believe the difference. I guess I should clean that every couple of weeks from now on. Soooo happy now
Those fins are great dust catchers. If you have a dog or cat its 10x worse as the hair tends to find its way there too....

I clean everything once a month. My new rad has big wide fins, so its not even close to the older one with the tight fins.

I never thing to suggest cleaning as most people do it on a regular basis... Glad you got it worked out..

Yea, this is all new to me. My First build and nothing but utter neglect for my prior prefabricated machines. Although I probably should have known better about cleaning. Anyway I do have a question about overclocking. I used to have 4.0gHz (200bclk, 20x), which was nice because my ram was @1600mHz. That setting needed 1.344v though. My new setting of 4.0gHz (175bclk, 23x) on needs 1.280v and seems way more stable. Why are they so different if the end result is the same? And although the 200bclk setting wasn't as stable it did seem slightly faster.

i7's dont like even multis like 20-22-24 etc.

I had no luck getting my i7 950 or 920 stable at 200x20 purely due to the x20 multi.

The system will appear marginally faster at 200 bclk due to the higher qpi and uncore speed.

True, but I haven't killed to much hardware. Let me think,
at least one or two EP45's
a X58-UD7
TeamExtream Ram
a i7-920
a P4
and a few GPU's
but that is pretty good considering what I put it though.
