    Very true!

    Incidentally, I've got mine running at 3.4GHz. Any higher seems to need silly amounts of Vcore to be stable and the temps are well into the 60's - too high for my liking.

    Cheers,

    Mine levels out at around 3.5Ghz, so its pretty normal, and when you consider the heat that they produce, its not bad really.

    Yep, I'm not going to turn my nose up at a 1GHz overclock

    Clunk zalman 9700 has just 2 nuts, or I did something worng ?
    plate that holds heat sink is mounted vertically so I have one screw on top and one at the bottom, so I can't control sides.
    What do you think ?

    Sorry, I thought that the Zalman coolers had a backplate with 4 screws at the corners?

    If not, theres not much you can do about it

    Is it possible to get a screwdriver to any of the 4 screws that hold the black bracket down after the heatsink is in place?..if so, have a go at tweaking them a bit? Same for the two that hold the heatsink on.

    Other than that, I think you are out of luck.

    I think I'll get one more metal plate, and will put on the one I have now, and I think i will be able to put 4 screws and then maybe adjust them the way I want :/

    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General

    What are boot times like for people running XP Pro SP2 with a Q6600, and how many times does the blue progress bar thingie go round on the Windows boot screen ?

    I can't do any timings at the moment because I'm waiting for my new monitor to come, but when I did initial testing at 3.24GHz, the blue bar thingie went round about 4 or 5 times. Is this normal or is something slowing my machine down during boot ?

    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General

    I'm getting about 62C after a few hours of Prime95 on all 4 cores with a G0 stepping. I have some testing and tweaking to do regarding thermal paste application, and possibly lapping my HSF. From my initial testing at higher speeds, the CPU does seem to be stable once given enough vCore but the temps do start to rise. With an improvement to my cooling (through tweaking), I hope to get 3.4GHz with load temps less than 60C.
