  1. I agree with you there Daddyjax...it does seem strange....1.65V is a huge amount of voltage and would have a big increase in both idle and load temps. That is not to say that he is lying...my guess is that you have duff temp sensors.
  2. Those temps are phenomenal! Are you sure they are right ??
  3. Here are my results from my new 3700 (a KACAE 0602GPMW). At stock volts of 1.392V it is prime stable at 3.11Ghz on air cooling. Here is a pic of her in action: If i can get the temps down a little bit then maybe I can push a bit more Vcore and increase the stable Overclock to 3.2Ghz
  4. Those temps seem fine...and the idle temp seems very good. In response to DragonTattooz's statement, yes it is easily possible to get 28 idle with air, as long as your ambient temps are around 23C (normal sort of temps) and you have a decent air cooler, good air flow and nice neat cabling. My old 3700 used to do 26-28C idle on air cooling, but my new 3700 is a different kettle of fish...does 31-33 idle with stock volts!
  5. Another thing which is strange is that my TDP on Tcasemax is 55.9W, whereas yours is 30W. This difference cannot just be to do with the extra 200MHz overclock on my CPU can it?! Also, my Tcasemax temp is 61C, apart from that everything else is the same. What does the Tcasemax temp mean?
  6. My God that makes me jealous. If I had idles of 26C I could throw in 1.55V into the CPU, which would allow me to break 3.2Ghz, prime stable. It almost makes me wanna try the stock hsf to see if a miracle happens and it lowers my load/idles.
  7. Seriously mate, are those temperatures right?? How on earth is it possible to get 24C idle with 1.65V with ambients of 26C? I wish my idles were that low.
  8. Those temps are incredible! Are you sure your room temp is 27C? I thought it would be impossible to idle lower than your room temp?! At 1.65V my CPU would run at around 60C (not joking either!), and I have superior air cooling to the stock cooler. V.v.v. wierd.
  9. Thanks Michael Here is a little Prime I have been working on at my stock volts and 3.11Ghz (notice the better temps this time) : For some reason the temps on this CPU arent very good. At idle I get around 30C at stock volts, hence my load temps are around 40-42C. This gets far worse when I increase the Vcore, and hence the chip is not scaling well with voltage at the moment (was prime stable at 3.145Ghz at 1.44V). The strange this is that my old 3700 had great temps at 1.54V...idle was 28C and load was 40C. I cannot understand why the new chip is running so hot. I have reseated my TT BT loads of times with varying amounts of AS5 and still no luck. If I was brave I would remove the IHS, but I cant imagine knackering this CPU, so I have wussed out (for now!).
  10. Thx. I have air cooling...but a pretty good air cooling setup....Thermaltake Big Typhoon with thunderblade fan, 5 case fans and nice neat cabling. You should get a better cooler, such as the one I have or something like an AC Freezer 64, then you might be able to push it further.
  11. I think you might be in luck mate. I have a KACAE 0602GPMW and it does 3.11Ghz at stock volts (1.392V) on air cooling, and this is totally prime stable. Here is a pic I took of my OC last week (my temps have dropped since then so I have managed to go up to 1.392V on the same Vcore): Your CPU is a week older than mine, so it should do pretty well on stock volts (maybe 3.0GHz depending on the cooling)
  12. Thanks Tmod. In your opinion, what is the best nf4 bios? Which one would you recommend for the highest FSB/HTT? Cheers
  13. But arent there a few versions of the 704-2BT bios? Is the one on the CD definitely OCZTony's version which everyone seems to rave about?
  14. Hi, just wanted to know if the version of the 704-2BT bios on TMod's CD is the version which OCZTony created in the sticky thread?
  15. Hi Kandoo, just to say thanks as the chipset fan arrived safe and sound after its trip across the pond. Thanks very much and I hope you get some kind of generosity award from the moderators (nudge, nudge). Cheers, Rusty
