  1. Should I be satisfied that I can OC my x2 4800 to 2.8 ghz. at 1.5 vcore and have a load temp of about 52C on air? Does anyone out there have a naked x2? Was it a big temp. drop to remove the IHS? The best air cooler that I've used is my SI-120 for sure.

  2. When I had my Big Typhoon on my board, my PWMIC temp. was hitting 70+. So now I run an SI-120 and the airflow is great. My 120MM silverstone fan is quite loud but powerful. My PWMIC temp. now gets to about 55C while double Priming. I've read that they are good for something like 90C. The dual core definately heats it up a lot. My old SD 3700 never got it this high.

     

    Good Luck

  3. Why would my TCC5 run just a tiny bit slower at DDR 508 then my TCCD running at DDR 600? The TCC5 is running at 2.5-3-3-7-1T and the TCCD runs at 2.5-4-4-7-1T. It seems to me that the TCCD should run a lot faster at DDR 600. I guess it's the timings.

     

    Just wondering. Thanks guys.

     

    Anyone need some Plat. EE's.

  4. I guess we do it because we can. Thats what I told my wife the other day when I was trying to explain OC'ing to her. From what I read everywhere, hi vcore is bad no matter what the temp. I've done it too but now I'm just running 1.39-1.5 through my x2 and I still worry a little. It's still a 900$ cpu.

     

    Good Luck Guys!

  5. I figured out that my thermalright SI-120 cooler works much better with the ends of the heatpipes facing up so now I can run my x2-4800 at 2.8 ghz. with 1.5 vcore. It runs about 52C or so while double priming. I think thats pretty good for air and an x2. I tried 2.9 ghz. but it gets too hot. Thanks for the advise everyone. I might just stick with air for now. I understand that I might not really get a better OC with water even though my load temps. will be a lot better. BTW, I use ceramique paste. I like it better then AS5.

  6. I had horrible results that I posted about in the OC'ing forum with the SI-120 upside down. It works way, way better with the heatpipe ends facing up. It keeps my x2-4800 OC'ed to 2.8 ghz. with 1.5Vcore at around 50C in Smartguardian while double Priming. If Smartguardian is correct then I think thats not bad for an x2. When I had the heatpipe ends facing down, I could only run 1.39Vcore at 2.7 ghz. If I tried 1.5Vcore at 2.8 ghz. it would just lock up at about 65-70C. I don't really believe the sensors are 100% correct anyway.

     

    Good Luck with your setup.

  7. Oh, I'm sorry...It is Thermalright. I mix up Thermalright and Thermaltake sometimes. When I had the heatpipes facing down it was very bad. Since I turned it around I can run more Vcore and got 100 mhz. higher OC. I think thats all I can do with the x2. It runs kinda hot at 2.8 ghz. at 1.5V but It's 24+ hour Prime stable now. I guess 2.8 ghz. out of an x2 4800 is a respectable OC. It's only 400 mhz.

     

    Good Luck

  8. I made a discovery yesterday. A very large Duh! move on my part. I run an Thermaltake SI-120 cooler and since I have owned it I have always mounted it with the ends of the heatpipes facing down. I dont recall reading about the proper position anywhere and I never questioned it, until yesterday. So, anyway my temps are about 15 deg. C cooler and my OC is 100 mhz. higher. It runs around 50C while double Priming @ 2.8ghz. with 1.5V. Before turning the cooler around it would top out at 2.7 ghz. at 1.39V.

     

    What do you guys think about my OC? Check my sig. Thanks for your opinions.

  9. I will trade my SD3700 and my Abit AN8-SLI board for a really nice, complete, water cooling setup plus 100$ US. They are both hardly used at all. I did do a chipset mod on the board and put a large passive cooler with a tiny fan on top and put a bunch of heatsinks on various chips including the pwmic's. I think it's a good deal, IMHO. I just want to get rid of the stuff and hopefully someone can get some good use out of it before it's really obsolete. I run a DFI board now with an x2-4800, so I dont need the above items.

     

    PM me if interested.

  10. I know that my proc. is an x2-4800, so it's a little different. I have tried many settings with it and it seems to only really be stable with a 300 mhz. OC. It's a little depressing when you see so many others with killer OC's but I do admit that I really love my x2. It runs great and it sure is a whole lot better then my old Celeron 566. The main problem I have is that when I try to bump up the voltage to say 1.47V to try and get a better OC, I have heat problems. I still have the lid on and I'm not even going there with this proc. My SI-120 does a good job with 1.39V and the small OC but not higher. Does anyone out there run their x2 on water? I'm really interested in a water setup if it will help my temps. in a major way.

     

    Good Luck Everyone!

  11. Not much difference between as5 and ceramique as far as temps. but I believe the ceramique is a Lot easier to work with IMHO. I Do Not like spreading AS5.

     

    I was just offering what was left of my tube. It would be maybe three bucks US, to mail it to you. If your really bumming for cash then it's not a bad deal.
