    Nice temps - I've got the same HSF combo waiting here for when Scan get some G0's in stock.

    I've still got to lap my HS - the base on mine is no where near flat!

    Can you please tell us what voltages you're using above.

    Stupid board and stupid clocks and stupid windows.

    Anyway started a blend test last night at around 9pm left it running come back this morning and windows decided it ran out of virtual memory and as a result closed prime95 as well, the results log from prime95 show it ran until 5am without a hiccup so is it safe to assume this thing is stable or would another torture test on just the CPU be better.

    I use the in place torture test, as it generates more heat. Blend is good if you want to test memory too, but as my memory is running in spec, I don't bother.

    Got a new case coming soon with a PA120.3 radiator fitted in the top - a Lian Li G70. I'm looking forward to having all my watercooling gear inside for a change, as my current Antec Sonata is just too small (radiator is attached to the rear of the outside of the case, pump is sat on the floor on the outside). Not cheap though, it's costing me about £340 from Over-clock, which includes the cost of the case, radiator, a fill point and Marci's time for cutting holes in my case!

    Cheers,
    Stephen

    Nice but for that amount of money you could get the v2000 from them and fit your PA120.2 in the roof like me works out cheaper to.

    Yeh think Ill leave it on the toture test tonight to see what happens, but what to test the mem with as its 74mhz over stock now.

    Yeah, I could have bought the V2000, but since heatpipes don't agree with being upside down I wanted a case where the motherboard is the right way up. Yes, it would have been cheaper, but this way I get what I want (case was £160). I did buy some extra stuff on there which bumped up the cost - Thermochill fan grill to fit the length of the rad, another 10m of tubing, some hose clips, so that would have brought the price up another £35-40 anyway.

    If I were you, I would go for the in-place torture test and make sure your CPU clock is stable before worrying about the memory. You could slacken the timings on that and it should be fine while you test your CPU overclock. Once you know the CPU is stable, switch back to the one which tests a lot of memory and then start playing with the RAM timings.

    Cheers,
    Stephen

    Ah didnt know you had heatpipes, I'd enquire to marci if I were you as my rad came with the grill as standard so I didnt need to buy one.

    Dont think I can slacken the timings anymore as they came stock at 1066mhz at 5-5-5-15.

    Mine was a custom kit build, so it won't come with a grill - you have to select it as part of the build.

    You should be able to slacken the timings, but if it is 1066 memory, then you should be good for an FSB of 533MHz.

    Yeh, Im running at 380fsb as the board just wont go any higher with the quad, but running on a 2:3 divider so memory is running at 570mhz.

    So turn the divider off until you are sure the CPU overclock is stable!

    If it is crashing, something is wrong mate. Personally, I wouldnt be happy with that as a pass.

    £340? Jesus! Have they got the adding up wrong? Its about £120 for the case and under £60 for the rad, so £160 for cutting 3 or 4 holes? Unless you are having the sidepanel done, but even so, £160 is very steep.

    I just sold mine recently, the problem I had, was that I ran out of 5.25 bays very quickly as the barbs obviously point downwards and they go right accross at least 3 of your bays.

    If I had another G70, I would have the rad in the bottom with the air being drawn upwards, and I would also have the 3 fan holes in the top as exhausts, that way the motherboard will get a shedload of airflow, and there will be less dust.

    If temperatures like that are on the cards, I might go for a new HSF and overclock sooner rather than later.
    The reason I'm not trying it at all right now is my 70 degree temps under load at stock speeds!

    What cooler is that mate, so I can add it to the not recommended list..stock one?

    Kustom had the case for about £140, so a £20 premium for them ordering the case in for me.

    Fill point and t-piece: £8.11
    10 nylon hose clamps: £6.30
    20 feet of tubing (I keep spare in case I later rearrange things): £21
    Radiator £56.99
    Fan/radiator cover: £21.09
    case: £162.15
    cutting and fitting: £64.63

    Stock one. Stock thermal pad, No backplate and I think its bending the motherboard, causing the core temps to be a fair bit out.
    Case is an Antec P182 with the fans set to medium.
    Temps are posted here
    http://forums.hexus.net/showpost.php...7&postcount=80

    Before, you mentioned second hand water cooling bits being very good value. Is that on here or some other sites? If so, where?
    I'm also going to look for a lapping guide for the HSF if I get a decent Air cooler and get some new AS5 (the stuff I have is about 2 years old)
    I hope my system's not in any danger with those temps.
