eVGA 780i sli and corsair h80..hear this out.
So. Birthday passed, figured ill get myself some new pieces of equipment. After some research I decided to purchase a new watercooled heatsink for my lga775 core 2 duo to see if I can get some more power out of it. Already clocked it to 2.8ghz on air. I'm amped ill get it up to 3.2 or more maybe. I have an evga 780i sli mobo, its great with setting voltages and everything. Great board to play around with. I purchase the corsair H80 CPU cooler. Excited as a pig in shit (excuse my language) get everything hooked up and run the computer. After idling for about 5 min, CRASH. I reboot and go into BIOS to check the system. Now I'm sitting here watching the temp of the proc going 200°+F WHOA. AND its steadily rising. I shut down, take the thing apart and remove the block to see if it had adequate thermal paste on there. It did. But that's when I noticed two capacitors not letting the block sit flush on the processor. And that leads me to seek advice. What do I do in this situation?! I'm so upset...
