I am getting really stressed out with this 4400+! Temps went out of whack again when I accidentally pushed my heatsink a little when I put my x1950pro into the rig, so I see the temps sear up into the 52-55C spectrum at 2.7GHz, so I went and backed her down to 2.4 (140x10), temps from 44-46C with dual folding. This was really getting on my nerves, so I reaplied AS5 like I never done it before, used Q-tips to rub over the de-IHSed CPU, and let it dry for like 2 hours. Then smudged the AS5 over the core, like you're supposed to, with a plastic bag, so you get one flat layer. I heard from some people that was supposed to be better... I dunno, i just wanted a higher overclock at better temps
Moved everything back to where it was, boot up... say a loud WHAT THE *censored* to myself, temps are fubared again... This time a little differently, I had problems before with core #0 being higher than core#1, now its the other way around... differences from 1-3C constantly, its so weird... right now, dual folding, its 39°Ccore #0, 40°C core#1, clocked at 240x10 with the window open... I think I might have to grab a sweater anytime soon.
Am I missing something? Could I have lapped my SI-120 so that is it not straight (as in more pressure on one core, less on the other)? It can't be the mounting bracket, I filed that down so its perfectly flat, meaning no higher stand-offs on one side than on the other...
Anyone got ideas?
 ohh, found something from my old 3700+ KABYE 0540BPMW again! 3105 suicide!
