    You can safely ignore the temps your Mobo is showing. It's on die temps that are important.

    The missing values on thet bios template are notthing to worry about. Mine is the same. They are just extra power saving features that some 45 nm chips have.

    If you set realtemp to read 28c that's fine. Note, you need to set Realtemp whiile you still have your multiplier set low and 1.2V Vcore.

    When you restore stock settings Realtemp will obviously show higher temps, but they will be accurate ones.

    Got the values entered for 3.0Ghz. Booted up fine and runs great. Temps seem to hold around 32-33 Celsius on Idle.

    On load for 5 mins using prime95, they bareley breech 50 Celsius.

    I would be tempted to check your calibration once more as those temps seem almost too good if you know what I mean.

    Your HSF could be much better than mine, but callibrated with 18c ambient I get 34-35c idle at stock.

    If you are 1000% sure the calibration is correct, I would recommenf leaving Prime 95 running over night for at least 8 hours on the blend test. If it passes with no errors (it will tell you if it errors) You can move up and try 3.2GHz.

    My specific chip was more than happy to do 3.22GHz at 1.275 Vcore with reference volts on auto and CPU Termination & PLL voltage at of 1.200V and 1.570V respectively. Best to do the stability test first though.

    A good thing to do now is go into the BIOS and save your current settings to a new profile so you can restore it later if you need to. On the main BIOS screen, hit [F11], type a name for your profile eg OC3.0GHz and hit enter.

    my ambient temp is 20 celsius. and i added 9 degrees to that when everything was stock.
    so my cpu temps were around 29 celsius for idle. Then after overclocking they seem to sit at 32-33-34 celsius at idle. And when i did the prime95 test, on full load they didnt get much higher than 50, but i guess i might have over exaggerated. They did get up to about 54-55-56 Celsius during the test.

    If i were to recalibrate the RealTemp settings, i would have to set everything back to stock right?

    I will run a prime95 test using a blend of stress tests and run it for a good long time. and let you know how it goes.

    You need to add 8-9 degrees while you still have everything set in the BIOS as follows:

    CPU Clock Ratio: [6]
    CPU Vcore [1.200v]

    With that still set, adjust RealTemp to ambient +8/9 (9 is better, its on the safe side).

    Then its time to reboot and change to default settings, or straight to your over clock if you wish.

    Its important that you calibrate Realtemp with a reduced multi and voltage, as it has been found that virtually all Intel Core 2 CPUs, be it a Quad or Dual will idle at the same temps +/-1c at 6x multi with default FSB and approx 1.1v shown in CPU-Z (meaning 1.200v in the BIOS).

    Realtemp has a handy little bit near the bottom that shows the max temp each core reached. If you hit the Reset button at the bottom of the window, then start prime, your max temps will be shown.

    Be sure to leave Prime for as long as possible. Over 8 hours is recommended. That's why its best to run it while you sleep, especially if this is your only PC.

    Right I was sure to calibrate RealTemp when cpu clock ratio was 6, and the cpu vcore was set at 1.200v. So i am 99.9% sure that the calibration on the temps is correct. My ambient temp in my basement is 20 Celsius so at idle i added 9 degrees to that for stock settings, making it 29 Celsius. After overclocking the temps went up to about 33-34 Celsius.

    The guy i was talking to at the computer store, seemed like a very knowledgeable person, and he recommneded this cooler over several others i was looking at (a zalmon, a coolermaster, a xigmatech) and he told me he has three systems running this cooler, two have a core 2 quad, and one has a new i7 processor, and he says his temps at idle a very low as well. Its a very well built cooler IMHO, all copper with a 90mm fan. I hav the fan blowing straight up in my antec 900 into a HUGE 200mm fan on the top of the case set on medium. Also directly to the left of the cooler there is a 120mm fan blowing air out of my system as well set on medium. I have 3 intake fans all set on medium, all 120mm, two on the front and one on the side. The side fan pulls air in and that cold air will be sucked into the cpu coller right away.

    No doubt this thing is cooling great.

    Ive been running the Prime95 test for about a half hour so far and temps are around 55 celsius. I am using my netbook to report this to you, so i dont mind having my main computer out of comission for the remainder of the day. I started the test at 1:00pm here (im in the United States in the Chicago Metropolitan Area) i will let the test run to 9:00pm or longer if i feel necessary. After running the test, hopefully there will be no errors, i would feel comfortable bumping the cpu up to 3.2GHz.

    I will keep you informed.

    P.S. sorry for always adding like 3 posts in a row, but i am unable to edit my own posts, and so far i can only post in the gigabyte forum. I emailed a forum moderator to see if they can help me out. but no reply yet.

    I have to thank you so much for the help you have given me in the past few days good sir. I feel better now that i am utilizing my computer to its every capability.

    I will report back later with results from Prime95 long term testing.

    Great stuff. No doubt your cooler is doing its job well, and I see no porblem using an upward orientation with your large top fan setup.

    Hopefully you'll be error free.

    I had great difficulty forcing my CPU up to 3.4GHz, however it is rock solid stable and passes Prime Blend for 24 hours, no errors.

    3.2-3.4 is a reasonable overclock for a chip with such a low (7) multiplier and is plenty for a single GFX card setup.

    Fingers crossed for 8Hours stable.

    yea no brick anymore. Turned out to be a usb external hard drive problem. dunno why it was causing my computer not to boot, but i no longer have the external drive in use and the computer runs fine.

    And if you have read i am now overclocking a bit.

    Nice to hear! Ya, sorry to not have read the whole topic I am very far behind here and just trying to start playing catch up.

    External drives sometimes are fine, but some of course are not compatible. What you can do to see if yours is ok plugged in is go into the BIOS and on the Integrated Peripherals BIOS page disable Legacy USB Storage detect. That will stop USB Devices from being scanned at startup and could fix your issue with the device being connected.

    This does not affect USB Settings once windows loads everything will function as it normally would, only in DOS based programs or Qflash would be affected. So you would need to re-enable it later if you need to use Qflash
