    I think I have pulled this motherboard out like 7 times already... Thank God it's "Ultra Durable" I should have my new cooler in the next few hours. Then I'm back in the overclocking game!

    Still stable D-and-W? I felt like screaming when I had one test go like 20 hours then BSOD.

    So if you had it to do over again.. would you still go for the E8400?
    I have some regrets at not going QC. Sure the QC's don't clock at high as the DC.. but having 4 cores could come in handy for some stuff.

    Had some issues with Prime Small failing today so raised the MCH Core two steps (After trying several other settings also) to 1.240V and so far (2hrs) it is now passing where before it was failing after about 20mins.

    I've gone from a 3.4GHz quad to a 3.9GHs dual and I can safely say I don't miss the Quad Core. Even in video transcoding I've only gone from 9.3x speed to 8x speed. Everywhere else I've got increases. My GPU now scores 8400 in 3DMark Vantage rather than 7900-8000 at the same GPU/VRAM clocks. Far Cry 2 is up by 9FPS on average at my prefered settings, Fallout 3 slowdowns are much rarer too.

    My Dual core does have 3MB of cache vs the Q8200's 4MB, but that's a net gain as it works out to 1BM more per die.

    If I had a Q9550 or Q9650, there's no way I'd go Dual Core as they're capable of hitting 4GHz with relative ease if you get the E0 stepping.

    At the moment the only game I've played that's significantly slower on my Dual Core is GTA4. It loves Quads, but is about the only game that does. A standard clocked Q6600 isn't much behind a 4.2GHz E8600 as far as that game goes.

    ARGH what a night.... I installed the new cooler without changing the mounting bracked from the old... didn't like my temps... so I redid the termal paste x3.. still didn't like my temps so I said well maybe it's the bracket. So I pull the MB out and the old bracket is sticky taped to the MB.. So I use a screw driver to gentely pry it off. Well the sticky tape suddenly gave and the MB went flying out of my hands and flipped upside down on the table (ya it still had it's memory in, so it landed on them first).. So I freaked out for a few minutes.. then said no.. it will be ok.. so I continued with the re-install got it all back together and powered it on.. and it did the two seconds on-then cut off, and again, and again.... FREAK OUT x 2... ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    So after I settled down I took it back out, redid everything VERY slowly.. put it back and it works now. Now I'm afraid to touch the darn thing. lol

    Anyone know what two seconds on-then cut off usually means? Maybe a short? sigh..
    I don't drink.. but man I could sure use one tonight!

    Well I made it through the night on a Prime95 torture test... and I wiggled the ram and had no issues. So not sure what it was.. but it looks like I might be ok.

    Here are my new temps... My room ambient temps were @ 25 degrees instead of 26.66667 so there is a minor change there that was due to me..

    Idle
    36 down to ~34

    Prime95
    58 down to ~50

    IBT
    66 down to ~58


    That cooler rocks... I wonder what the copper version can do?!?!?!?!
    Now back to the overclocking.

    D-and-W how about a new BIOD setting update? Where ya at? and can you add temps you are getting. I'm curious if we are getting similar temps.

    Still using pretty much the same template, just testing one more step of CPU Vcore to try and stabilise Prime95 (Arghhhhhhhhh)...

    Those are about the same temps as I see with my 8400 clocked at 4GHz.

    I think that the boot-pause-boot thing is the Dual Bios doing its job?

    I'm still not convinced that I have the thermal paste right...

    I'm using D-and-W's template for 3.99Ghz but I'm running @ 4.003G (471 FSB)..

    I'm @

    66 Degrees for 20 runs of IBT
    57 Degrees for Prime95 custom stress testing with in place FFT.

    When I kill those it sits @ 43 and SLOWLY over minutes comes down to 36...
    to me that is saying that I got too much paste slowing the transfer of heat from the proc to the heat sink. So after I finish my 24 hr test.. I think I may redo the paste and use less. Thoughts?
