    I mounted the probes just underneith the heatsink on the chipset and the near the cpu socket (as close as I could get without comprimising heat exchange) So the temps are fairly accurate.

    As for your overclocking, You should be able to hit 3ghz (158 FSB) but as far as going past that, you may run into problems, won't even guarentee 3ghz for ya... but you SHOULD be able to go past 3ghz :)

    Sorry, I am trying, but I do not follow. Do you have a pic or do you have an links to a website with pics. I've searched on google and have found nothing other than pics of probes being taped to AMD processors. I can't find any info at all on doing this to a P4. Right now this is the only thing holding me back from putting my computer together. I have all of the parts now but this temp thing is really confusing me cause I want to overclock and know that it is important to keep an eye on the temps. Are there not any software monitors that give an accurate cpu temp?

    Edit: I found a pic. Is this how you are doing it?

    I'd recommend the software monitor that came with your motherboard... But, if your like me, and didn't get one with your motherboard, experiment.

    Secondly, no I don't place my probe like that. It goes about 2 mm next to the socket (opposite side of pin1). It doesn't touch the top of the heatsink at all so I don't comprimise heat transfer. But it's close enough to give an accurate reading (right now it reads 31 C, and if I had a program that I coudl read the temp from the cpu therm diode itself (which is give or take 5 C), I bet it'd read in and around the same... The probe for the chipset, since the chipset is designed like a fc-pga p3 for example (even a duron or athlon), I just set the probe next to the core... Accurate to within 2 C I'm guessing).

    No pics unfortunately... I could take a pic with this cheapo webcam I got laying around, but it looks like russian tv (that wasn't a shot for any russians who may read these forums, just a generalization... you may commence poking fun at Canada now :geek:)

    This ASUS board came with a program called ASUS PC Probe and I'm gonna use it. I was confused and nervous putting this together so I went ahead and just put in the retail HSF. I guess I'll just won't overclock as high as I was hoping. This is already so fast, though, I don't even know if I need to overclock. :D

    ASUS Probe was fairly dead on temp wise on my old dual p3 1ghz box.. granted, not perfect :)

    I have almost the exact setup as you(see sig). To apply the AS3, use a plastic sandwich baggy around your finger so you don't get any oils from you finger mixed in. If you put too much AS3, it won't conduct the heat as well. Like Wiggo said, just apply a paper thin amount. Almost to the point where you can see through it. Also, AS3 takes a few weeks to set in and during this time you WILL notice a drop in CPU temp. For about 3 months I was using a ThermalTake P4 Dragon heatsink and recently I picked up a ThermalTake Volcano 7+ and my CPU temp has dropped by 4c. I have my system at stock speeds righ tnow but I just finished testing how high I could OC it. I got the FSB up to 154 stable, RAM at 385Mhz, and vid card at 330/700. All votages were also raised for stability. This only managed to get me about 600 more 3dmarks. Temps were very reasonable. I have since put everything back to stock. It still runs fast stock.
