    Well I is leaving them at 2.2v as they seem fine and 9hrs stable is good enough for me.

    Now next point is this stupid ocz memory cooler I got today, after everybody saying its great I gave in a bought one for £15, now the reason its so god damn cheap.

    It just doesn't do its job good enough each fan moves 16cfm of air at 3000rpm and is my ram any cooler like hell it is back on with the 7cm delta, put it on a fan controller and bingo quiet fan and cool memory (I mean cool to the touch literally).

    So my thoughts on this ocz memory cooler pain to fit, fitting is loose and wont cool the ram good enough.

    So anyone want a ocz memory cooler £15 inc p&p.

    Right if I hear one ounce of laughing things will get nasty.

    Now just as I finished typing that post I had a complete freeze, so I 'm now running 356x9 with v-core at 1.37, mem at 1068mhz @ 2.14v and the bridge at 1.45v, I've tested this setting with prime95 and its stable at 12hr.

    Just got fed up of testing to be stable maybe Ill look into 3.4ghz next week but I think 3.2 aint that bad.

    Did you do what I said? Enable swap and set a 1:1 divider on your RAM, then test your overclock. once you are happy it is stable, put your ram divider back and test it. Only then turn off your swap file (which is daft anyway).

    This says it all:



    GA-P35-DS4, Q6600, with a Scythe Ninja+ RevB with the fan attached, and using AS5. Vista x64, 4gb OCZ PC6400.

    Applied the thermal paste as per AS5 directions, straight line across middle...

    Strange thing is a massive variation in temperatures..

    Idle is:

    Core 0: 66
    Core 1: 62
    Core 2: 58
    Core 3: 61

    Looks to me like your heatsink isnt on properly. For stock, that is just wrong.

    Use a small amount and spread it about evenly.
    If you have a concave/vex CPU/HSF, which is very common, it won't spread fully

    Arctic Silver make some special stuff, or you could just use Isopropyl Alcohol, which you can buy from Maplins or a chemists.

    I use dry kitchen roll to remove the old stuff, and any stubborn stuff, isopropyl, or akasa tim clean will do.

    That's the stuff I was trying to remember! Smells like Oranges. I know Kustom PC's used to sell it, don't know if they still do.
