  2. Thx for the replies. For this mb can I attached a super cooler with fittings curretnly on board? The heatsink looks weirdly attached on the photo in the link I provided on my first post. steve
  3. Hi The mb is here: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=58744 Basically the northbridge on my mb is showing consistently around 50 degrees even at stock. Because of the temp I cant take it above 292 mhz. I want to cool the NB more actively but I have never done this before. Is there a special way to do this? I cant see any holes or fixings on the board, and the NB cooler seems to be specific to the board, or is the way it is fitted generic? Any advice on how to change th nb cooler would be most appreciated. I am also considering changing the thermal compound, usingt he original passive heatsink with better compund and pointing a fan on it. Any ideas on that idea? thx steve
  4. HI Noob question here. Is the NB the Intel 975X chip or the Intel ICH7R chip? thx steve
  5. Thanks for the advice. It did reboot once, so it must be too hot. Can I add that cooler you suggest without scraping off the passive heatsink that is already there? The NB picture is in this thread: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=58744
  6. Is there a good one, and do I have to take off the passive cooler that is on there, or can I slot the fan ontop of it? Thx steve
  7. Hi I am running at 320fsb, one notch up on RAM, vcore and NB. My temps, using Prime 95 in Dual mode are: system 37 cpu 48 NB 57 ARe these temperatures OK? Is the NB a little high? Thx steve
  8. OK, thx, I have upped my NB, RAM and Vcore(CPU VID) by one notch. It works fine, and thx as I now have the fsb at 320mhz. One quickie, When would someone raise the overall voltage supplied to the CPU (CPU VTT)? thx steve
  9. Hi people With the 975x/g there are two settings in the bios for cpu voltage. Which one should I up when doing a small overclock of 266mhz to 300mhz? Thx steve
  10. Thanks for the replies guys. One last thing. I booted this morning and got a found new hardware message for a "standard dual channel PCI IDE controller" It isnt working and i have nothing in my pci slots. Can anyone tell me what this is and how I can get rid of the message? thx steve
  11. I am real sorry, but I didnt understand your answer. Can you explain in noob speak? steve
  12. Hi Just a quickie, in the bios there is CPU VID (Vcore) and CPU VITT (voltage to cpu) Firstly, should I leave Vcroe alone and concentrate on VITT, and why is it that the default CPU coltage of 1.325 volts is higher than the CPU VITT of 1.200 volts? thx steve
