    Hi again,
    Went ahead and bought the zalman.
    Fitted it ok idle temps are about the same which was a dissapointment.
    However used OCCT and managed to complete their test for the hour now that's a result temps peaked at 77c
    So still hot but stable.
    I'll have ago at posting some screenshots that may help decide if there is a problem with my settings.





    According to the preview they worked.
    Is the memory right reading 800mhz but i have 8500
    Thanks again guys.

    OCCT Screenshot showing temps.

    Cheers again

    I can't see much in your cpu-z screenshot but it appears that the vcore is 1.4xx something, also I'm not familiar with your bios options but it appears that your vcore is set to 1.5v ??? That's way too much, no wonder your temps are high. Where it says cpu voltage control in white you should be able to adjust it down, at the very least go down to 1.325v. The problem isn't the cooler entirely, excessive vcore is the main culprit imo.

    The bios options in white are adjustable the ones in blue are the default values

    Your memory needs to be set to 1066MHz by using a different divider to the 3.2 you're currently using.

    The Zalman is not the worst choice you could have made but also not the best.

    Thanks for your help again.
    I have reduced vcore to 1.264v and ran the test for a hour temps reached 61c about 20 degrees lower!!
    How low can you go on the vcore voltage as i don't know what it does.
    Confused with the memory comment as my bios shot shows 800/1066 which i thought was correct for my memory as pic.
    I have set it as you advised and now 800/800 divider one notch lower 2.4 i think.
    Can you go into it a bit more for me please.
    Just making sure that memory is suiting overclock and visaversa.
    Now temps are much lower would you have ago at 3.2ghz?
    Thanks again.
    Paul

    vcore is the voltage your cpu gets, the lower the better, keep lowering it and testing until you get instability then go back up one setting and you should be fine.

    You should be able to do 3.2GHz no problems, set your CPU Host Frequency to 400MHz and your CPU Clock Ratio to 8, you will probably need to lift your CPU Voltage Control to around 1.30V or there abouts (maybe a little more, maybe a little less) until your pc is stable.

    You are correct that your memory was running at 1066MHz, I made an error there (333MHZ CPU Host Frequency x 3.2 CPU Clock Ratio = 1066MHz Memory Frequency)

    To get your memory to run at 1066MHz with a 400MHz FSB (CPU Host Frequency) you'll need to use a CPU Clock Ratio of 2.655 if you have one available (I'm not sure which CPU Clock Ratio options your board provides) as 400MHZ CPU Host Frequency x 2.655 CPU Clock Ratio = 1066MHz Memory Frequency (roughly)

    Good luck

    Hi
    Lots of this horrid white stuff in the air today
    Back to the subject tried your settings 400x8 and refused to boot into windows.
    So tried 356x9 and set memory 2.5 = 1068 (no split options)booted into windows and tripped.
    Got a scare for a moment as i got a black screen thought i had killed it.
    Reset PSU and it booted into the bios reset to 3.0ghz setting and set memory at 1066.
    I did try altering the vcore maybe i did'nt try harder enough but without having the experience not sure is best left alone IFYNWIM
    My temps at idle are 32/32/27/26 should they be lower vcore is set at 1.264
    Cheers
    Paul (don't know your name)

    Hello Paul, sunny and warm here in California today. No white stuff in the air, lots of brown stuff though.

    I usually take speeds up by small steps. I have found that I'm not smart enough to go for the ultimate settings in one go. It's easy to get confused when nothing works!

    Have you run the CPU at that FSB already, or was this your first try? I would try to get the CPU stable with the RAM underclocked, say at 1:1 (712 MHz), then go for the RAM's rated clock speed with relaxed timings, and only then try to optimize (sorry, optimise, bloody Yanks!) the RAM timings.

    My Q6600 runs 356x9 with a modest overvolt, but I haven't yet found success getting my 4x2GB setup much past 800 MHz.

    Hi,
    My pc runs fine as far as im aware at this overclock OCCT for an hour temp 61c not managed to get it up to 3.2 but this is ok for the moment very pleased with the result.
    Do have issue with ram see post ram timings.
    No snow today just ice as bad i suppose
