alright so i have it at 3.20 ghz and it's stable. i had to manually set the vcore voltage at 1.50 v because it wouldnt boot without it set. my new settings are 1600mhz fsb and 800 for the memory. everything else is either the same or what i had it before. look at the first post if you dont remember
. once i tried 1700 it froze up on me. booting was a bust so i had to power it down and restart. once i realized that i had only a limited amount of time to change the settings before it froze up. in the bios! i never seen anything like it haha. anyways, i was just gonna ask if anyone could help me get it to 3.5 ghz. temps are lower than usual since it night time right now but id say it raised a couple degrees. maybe like 60-62c max load. ive read intel's temp specs and max temps for my c2d are like 70.5c; so im getting up there. id say getting the cnps9700 would definitly help with this little problem
any suggestions on cpu coolers? ive heard the thermaltake big typhoon vx has the best temps but ive always liked the zalman haha. hope to here you from you guys.
