    Yeah you can use that. So He didn't give you the backplate eh. Well I do not know where you live to give ya a link to buy one, but you need a ThermalRight Bolt Thru Kit >>>

    I use one with my Water Setup, they are very nice and not expensive

    I have the backplate but I read on some review that this particular cooler might not work with newer mobos such as mobos for the new Core Duos.

    Anyway, I am still getting random lockups. Fired up the comp this morning to do some browsing, didnt even have orthos on and again I got system lockup.... Orthos Blend ran fine for 5 hrs last night no errors. :|

    Should I try manual subtimings instead of AUTO now?

    Or could be it be a strapping issue? I did he Ctrl-F1 but still no SPD without letter. Maybe a higher strapping will work if I set 2.40C and run the mems @ 960MHz

    Ahh, well I have not read that, but I havent been looking either. Looks like it would work ok to me, why do they say it may not?

    Na, sounds like you may still need a bit more Vcore, then try the subtimings. I does take some time and is not something you can get right in a day or two that is for sure. That is why there is BIOS profiles F11 (Save) and F12 (Load) you can keep one at a low stock or stable settings, and one the overclock profile you are working on and load that only when you have time to tweak things and use the other when you need to use your PC and have it stable for sure

    Okey so even though Orthos Small FFTs pass the test for 9-10 errors it could still be the CPU that is making the system hangup? I dont mean that Orthos Blend make an error. I mean the whole computer freezes and I have to force it shutdown with either holding in power on or switching off the PSU.

    It didnt say why the cooler might ow work but I found some info on another page and it looks like the fastening device topside of the mobo might not fit due to some oversized capacitors close to the holes where the screw goes down.

    Yeah even though it may be stable at that voltage once it is ran in conjunction with the ram it may still not be enough and need a small bump.

    And I will say again, that ram may not be compatible with GA boards. And have you tested it on a seperate System to be sure it is ok?

    Ahh, well in that case you would just have to remove the one you are using now and place the new cooler on there and see if it does hit anything or not

    I have the actual cooler in my hand now and the mounting device for seems to be an updated version comparing to the ones in the review and it will surely fit :) Also I have my MCH fan now. Gonna install it all when I get home from work.

    Concerning the RAMs, yeah I think they are good, I did use those mems in my computer for 2 months prior to the overcloking at 4-4-4-12 2.1v without a single lockup or instability. I will up the Vcore a notch later today and try again.
    I did the blend test and large FFTs in Orthos when I was at stock settings in bios and no errors.

    Nice! Sounds like you are in business then

    Ya, then it sounds like your ram should be ok, unless you have majorly overvolted it since you last used it fine. May want to test in a different system to be sure if you can though.

    Yeah I know it would be good to test them in another system but unfortunately I dont have that option, I only have one computer.

    I have never gone past +0.300 on the RAMS so they should be ok. Gonna install the other cooler now If I can, the damn thing needs a wrench to tighten the screws with and I dont have one :|

    Finally I have all in place, hardware wise that is. New cpu cooler and a modded northbridge. I actually managed to remove the metallic sticker-thingy from the MCH and mount a 60mm fan 2000rpm ontop if it blowing air down. MCH is now cool :) The cpu cooler however is not that great. I am at around the same temps now as I was with the 65nm stock cooler BUT with one advantage - the computer is almost silent now :)

    Do I need to recalibrate realtemp again now with a another cpu cooler?

    I had some probs with that I remember. Could not get the comp to boot/post at 266x6, had to move to 333x6 to get it to post so I am guessing my realtemp program is not optimized :|

    So, after removing that metal cover, you did redo the paste right? If not, you better as I am sure you moved it while doing so.

    I would recalibrate it if I was you. Well silence it nice, can you adjust the fan or is it ok the way it is?

    Na, it is just because 8400 is a 1333 FSB cpu, so you want 6x333 and lowest volts you can boot in with is all
