    ok ill see if the computer place has any of those HSF units, and if i can ill get the best one. You sure it will fit on the ep45-ud3p?

    It's a reduction at least which is good.


    They will all fit, 100% sure. I checked as I was going to get one before I lost my job, so I had to go for a budget version

    You know it's time to quit for the day if the monitor seems to be going blury. Let us know when you get your new heatsink, I'll be interested to see what you choose. I love new stuff, even if its somebody else's.

    Alright so i picked up a MassCool Ice Cold 7WA001 cpu and heatsink. got it installed and i am monitoring temps.

    So far they are 48-44-49-46 at idle and seem to be dropping. Not a huge improvement over the stock cooler, but its still fresh thermal grease, so im hoping it will drop a few more degrees after some use.

    Using Prime95 under full load for 5 mins temps only got up to 62-58-62-60. Not bad considering they were up above 70 with the stock cooler.

    What you think about overclocking now?

    That seems like a big improvement.

    To verify that the temperatures you are seeing are realistic I strongly recommend following the instructions in the following guide. The temp sensors inside Core 2 CPUs aren't really designed to output accurate temperatures, they merely control the thermal safety features that stop you porentiallt frying the chip eg by running it with no heat sink.

    The calibration section is what you're after, about half way down. It does involve changing a few bios settings, so be sure to change them back when you're done.

    As soon as that's complete you can try 3.0GHz. Don't be tempted to skip ahead though, calibrate first.

    hmm ive read through the stuff on that site for calibration, but im still confused on what to do.

    Follow the instructions in the calibration section.

    Open the side of your case.

    Go into the BIOS and set CPU CLOCK Ratio to [6], CPU Vcore to [1.200]

    Re-boot. Now find the temperature of the room. A regular household thermometer will do, leave it in the room for ~15 minutes so it's accurate.

    The real temperature of your CPU should be approximately the temperature of the room + 8c, so if for example room temp is 25c, then 25+8 = 34.

    You would then go into RealTemp's settings menu and where it says Idle Calibration, adjust the numbers so that they change Realtemps temperatures to match your room temp +8..

    As per the first exampl, if all 4 cores read 43c and your room temp + 8 = 34, then entering -9 (minus nine) in each box will force Realtemp to show 34c.

    Below is a picture of my temps after calibration, and the settings screen where I calibrated them.

    ok, according to my thermometer i have, my room temperature is 20c. So you suggest that i add 8 degrees to that. So my idle temps would be 28c

    That seems super low, thats good.

    ive gone into the bios and entered the values for 3.0ghz.

    one thing tho, in advanced bios options i do not have options for:
    C2/C2E State Support....................: [Disabled]
    x C4/C4E State Support..................: [Disabled]


    And to add, when in my bios in the pc health status area, it says my cpu temp is 22c, system temp is 32c. Should i coorelate those values with RealTemp?
