Been tooling around with the x4800 chip some more and after doing all the lapping and reseating with the Coollabs liquid metal...well, I'll let the pic do the talking. It's a bit chilly today but thats just insanity compared to what I was getting with 9500 zalman and AS5.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/b/b1/b1d40546_vbattach33220.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/617065/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

Sir... I am impressed! <br />
<br />
Not to be too cynical, but have you checked temps w/ another monitor utility? I only ask as I like to err on the side of caution.

Thanks<img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> , I've had great luck with both x2 4000 and x2 4800, they both overclock like champs. 3.12 Ghz seems about as hi as I can go tho, because if I try 3.14 my system will lock up at the first line of the POST screen and I have to cmos reset no matter even if I set vcore to 1.6.<br />
<br />
I can do 303x10 at 1.44 vcore or 284x11 at 1.52 vcore, what do you think I should go with ?

No I havent checked temps with other programs but I notice that the temp goes up likes its supposed to when i run prime 95 and it goes higher with more vcore and oc. Even if its off by a few degrees its certainly seems to be reading changes correctly. And I used same exact setup with zalman 9500 and hitting 50C load with 1.52vcore

Check out what my Ninja+ did as far as temps and OC goes. Them Ninjas are great for air huh?<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/f/f4/f4876be2_vbattach33225.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/617061/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a><br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/d/da/da625f08_vbattach33226.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/617060/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

Sweet.....I'm a believer of Scythe coolers now! <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> I strapped on the silverstone FM121 to it and yah I really can't imagine a much better air cooling solution for the cpu.

Core is not your CPU temp. Its usually Temp1 or Temp2. <br />

It seems directly related to the cpu1 temp but the reading on that one is vastly off in speedfan. It idles at like 43C and as soon as I start using the CPU it start making 3 degree jumps til like 63C sometimes.

The core is AMD K8 in your system. Check the BIOS to see what temps are...<br />

Sweet christ that thing is amazing... I checked the scythe webby there and it seems that particular model costs 50 dollars! however, mountability 4 ways, boasting MUCH easier install than the BT and it seems, lower temps... I cant see any reason why I shouldnt go buy one of these bad boys and some AS5 right now. <br />
<br />
Scythe also says the entire thing including fan weighs 960 grams, so that seems to be a bit on the high side -- any ideas for weigh ballasting? any observed mobo flex?

What is "Liquid Pro"? <img src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Confused" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
And anyway, nice temps man! I might take another look at scythe now...

The Infinitys or Mines are a great choice too. Just as a heads up the liquid pro will bond to your IHS and the base of your HSF. It lowers your temps ALOT, but it isn't worth it to me.

</div>In the manual it says you can remove it with metal polish <a href="http://www.coollaboratory.com/en/manual.shtml" target="_blank">manual</a><br />

Should you desire to remove Liquid Metal from cooler and/or CPU (e. g. before selling), just wipe it off. Remains that will not come off easily that way can be removed with help of metal polish that is e. g. used for polishing chrome body parts in automobiles.

</div>No dude it BONDED, like on and stay on. That metal polish would have to have some grit in it to get that off.

This is the coollabs <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835121005" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835121005</a>... I'm not sure bout long term use as this if the first time I tried it. I like how it spread out much easier than AS5 and the temps are real sweet. And yah I wholeheartedly recommend the Ninja, as it cools wonderfully and fits in my case without too much effort (avoided the Infinity model for this reason). As for the weight of it, I dont think it will cause any problems unless you plan on lugging your PC around everywhere. It feels very light for the size of it.

I got 4 silverstone FM121's in the case. 2 at the front, 1 at the back, and one on the Scythe Ninja. Case also has the "big boy" 200mm on top for exhaust.
