    hey guys, just got hands on my TT Silent Boost and 2x Panaflo 80mm case fans.

    first q, i use AS3 and i was kinda hoping for lower temps, after a couple of days these are the temps: Case 17c, CPU 45c, and Socket diode is 34c. Its my understanding that the closer the CPU/Socket temps the better the hsf? Ive also seen around here about someone getting it a 2500+ to 3200+ speeds with a Silent Boost and the temps around 45c.:confused:

    I also tried overclocking, however with Optimal settings, 200x10.5 (3000+ speeds) @ 1.75v worked OK. when i tried to get it to 200x11 it screwed itself over with "IRQ not LESS EQUAL" errors. I have also read around here that 2500+'s should be able to get to 3200+ easily, and with not much extra voltage. Correct?

    My computer specs are below, and my bios revision is 1005. any suggestions or answers would be greatly appreciated. thanks :thumb:

    Well, depending on your ambient temp, those temps might not be that bad. One question, do you have your own temp diode to measure the cpu, is that what the 45C temp is? And the diode is the temp your mobo is giving you?

    I'd try taking it off, cleaning everything up with rubbing alcohol (A3 comes off really easy) and remounting it with a fresh coat of AS3. Sometimes you can put on too thick or too thin a layer and the TIM application canr eally hinder performance. If not, check to see if it could use a good lapping. If you see any marks or anything on it, check out my roughnecks lapping guide here:

    my room temperature is about 18 degrees celsius.

    when i got my new HSF i cleaned the CPU really well, taking my time and doing it properly with alcohol swabs. Also the Silent boost was very flat and clean...i didnt think it needed to be lapped.

    also i forgot to point out, i have 4 case fans (2 blowing in, 2 blowing out) and my psu has one blowing out and one blowing in (over the CPU)

    when i got it to 3000+ speeds @ 1.75v the temperature on the actual CPU diode raised to about 55c.

    well the 2500+ has a diode built in, thats what i call the "CPU" temp (45c). the "Socket diode" is an actual diode built into the m-board itself and is under the CPU in that square there.

    If you want to oc the 2500 a little higher than that - I personally might do a *small* hsf upgrade to a vantec aeroflow. Personally my 2600+ @ 19c room temp idles at 37 and 42 under load. That temp is at a fsb of 210 and a multiple of 10.5 with a stock vcore. Your Asus mobo, just like mine probably oc's great. You might also try lapping the silent boost if the bottom isn't perfectly flat and smooth. BTW I've never heard a Silent boost on high, but I can't imagine the aeroflow being much louder.

    that's because the Tt Silent Boost only has one speed and stays at a constent 21 dBA

    Ahah, you're a quick one... But if a tree falls in a forest, and nobody is around to hear it - does it make a sound?

    i took a quick look at the Vantec website...their Aeroflow is 38db and the Aeroflow 2 is 35db :thumbs do compared to 21db.

    maybe some one like minibubba or others with a A7N8X Deluxe (there a quite a few on TT Forums) could help me out here, its just i know it can be done and several people have done it here on TT, i remember someone having exactly the same mobo/ram/cpu and getting it to 3200 speeds.

    thanks :cheers:

    If you are into good cooling though, the Aeroflow will ream the TT in performance.

    But, that's cuz the Silent Boost was made to be very quiet, so its easily beaten.

    I got my 2500 to 3200 speeds without touching anything but the FSB raised to 200, and everything runs very stable, with idle temps of about 45-47 (cpu). Sometimes you're just out of luck and maybe ended up with a really bad overclocker, but mess around a little more, and you should be able to reach 3200 speeds no problem, since Im not using any thermal paste, and Im still on the super crappy stock HSF.

    I don't have a 2500+ (yet). In fact I'm running a 2100+ paly OC to ~1.9 ghz. I know it aint much, but that's all it will take :(

    Anyway, running F@H on it 24/7 (100% load) with an ambient room temp of 22-23 C my temps never get above 42 C with a Tt Silent Boost (AS Ceramique, not lapped). That's not BIOS readings either, I've got a nice little hardware probe on it.

    Sure, I could better temps with a louder cooler or at twice the cost of the silent boost. But it keeps my rather hot little cpu more than cool enough and at only a whisper.

    Now, as for OC a 2500 to a 3200, I can only tell you what I have read since I havn't done it myself yet. But it looks like you're doing it right to me, you just may want to up the voltage a bit more if you run into a road block. A properly applied Silent Boost should be able to handle the extra heat without a problem.

    :cheers:
