Nice and clean. Insulation removed. The big blue ball - it will be re-used one day <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>

Nice, one think I found when overclocking my bclk (i5 760) was that I could use 200, go to 233 stable (no values inbetween) or 266 stable (again, no values inbetween)<br><br>
But, nice job on the overclock! looks like fun!

I spent many hours on air and water playing just with BCLK <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"> The highest one I ever achieved was 239. I don't have much experience, but my impression was that the stuff behaves differently in sub-zero - I had to use different levels and combination of voltages for high OC (mainly Vcore and QPI). Close to 5GHz they had precise values - anything slightly higher or lower didn't work.<br><br>
My ideas - please tell me what you think:<br><br>
1. I could not figure out 24x + turbo + 1 or 2 cores combo - I can set it, but I can not get any high OC (most of results better than mine were on 1 or 2 cores only).<br>
2. Windows - I just used fresh Windows 7 installation - I had no issues with starting in BIOS @5GHz, so I imagine that super light version of windows 7 or even better XP could help.<br>
3. I had strange feeling that lowering temps may help <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"> LN LOL?<br><br><br>
PCI-E - I will double check - but I'm pretty sure it's not like that on P55 platform.</div>
</div>
<br>
Generally, you should be able to set two cores, make sure turbo is turned on, and then set the 24x multi. Were you just having difficulty getting high clocks or were you unable to get the multiplier to take effect at all?<br><br>
Generally what I do when pushing for CPU-Z is to set the multiplier that I want but a lower BCLK. I then raise it in Windows using the overclocking application that came with the motherboard.

The former. I can use 24 multi with 2 or 1 cores.<br><div class="quote-container" data-huddler-embed="/t/1392356/i5-750-5ghz-on-dice-my-first-extreme-cooling/20#post_20076649" data-huddler-embed-placeholder="false"><span>Quote:</span>

<br>
Sounds good to me <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"> I saw this idea in action in some older configs with SetFSB tool. I will check it for sure <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

Can you set the 23x multi? With bloomfield, the odd numbered multipliers gave the best results.

Doing it wrong....you have to crush the dice.Ofc i did several sessions b4 someone told me this <img alt="sozo.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/sozo.gif"><br>
I use the bottom of a Clorox bottle and a 6 lb sledge.The idea is to have as litlle air as possible in between the cold stuff.I like that pot! <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br>
As for the back..I LET the back..about 1/2 the board.

Thanks for letting me now - I will crush for my next session <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"> There was not much air, as acetone was 'boiling' quite heavily, I wonder what is temperature delta between crushed and non-crushed dice. Unfortunately I don't have thermometer yet <img alt="redface.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/redface.gif"><br>
For back I used a few layers of paper towel + thick K-flex on all board area - I saw this approach recommended in various places and decided to follow. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

Wow, I never realized how easy it was to remove that kind of insulation. I always assumed the board was a dedicated LN2 board afterward.

I wish I would have just spent the extra money and bought eraser to begin with. I used LET and god is this stuff a pain in the ass to remove from between components. I put a good 6 hours into trying to get it off and gave up. Just going to sell the mobo cheap and get eraser. Well actually I ordered 16 blocks of generals jumbo kneaded eraser today.

I love LET for graphics cards but it can definitely be a pain on motherboards.

I could definitely see using it on GPU and if I didn't care about RMA I would probably actually use a clear acrylic spray or laquer. I just can't get the LET out from between the inductors. I was looking to see if I could buy replacements and just replace them but it would cost more than it is worth.
