yes correct. I heard something about i7s running hot, but i am not sure if this is how it should be. I did not use AS5, i used the thirmalright stuff that came with the heatsink.
I hope these temps are acceptable. We have been having a scorching last 3-4 days.

Well it's within the temps that thread was talking about but you haven't started overclocking yet either. Are you gonna try and bump it up to say 3.2 and check the temps?

yea but not within the next week for sure (I have a feeling i will crack though ). I literally need someone to hold my hand as i do it. I am not gaming much so i dont even know if there is any point for me, other than size of e-pen0s.

I don't game that much either but I don't know it's just kind of fun pushing it and getting more speed out of it than you paid for. I guess it's a geeks kind of hot rodding.

Some I7's run hot and some pretty cool. Mine idles at 36 degrees at 4.2 1.3 volts. Prime95 goes up to mid to high 80's. That's fine because no program I use, needs 100% of the cores all the time.

Very true that. The D0 made a nice change from my C0/C1.

The good thing about the D0 is they are quite a bit cheaper than the C0 when they came out. It only cost me $50 NZ which is about $28 US. Not bad at all.

I'm interested to know more about the Gulftown.

My C1 runs frosty at 3.8ghz @ 1.35Vcore with the TR TRUE copper and didn't get above 73c running 8 instances of Prime95 for 11 hours.

It's so rock-solid stable right now, I wouldn't even consider the hassle and cost (though small) to be worth another 200mhz or so.

But that's just me.

I'm curious with the extreme you have, is your oc limit at 3.8? Or is heat holding you back?
