    Clocking my X2 3600+ Higher Thread

    Hi guys,

    I have been running my X2 3600+ at 2.9GHz (306x9.5) for the last 4-6months, but then with summer heating up I clocked it back down to 290x9.5 because I was getting some BSOD's appearing every now and again.

    I have it cooled with an Ultra 120 Extreme, but it seems really hot. To the touch it feels between warm and hot.

    Here is a picture of temperatures:

    ^click on it for full size one

    And here is my case airflow:




    Does 48c according to Coretemp, and 55c according to Speedfan(I KNOW this one is too high for what I should be getting)

    Reason's as to why I could be having such high temperatures?

    My Celeron 420 with the Gemini II feel's about the same temperature when it's passive through touching the heatsink and the Celeron was doing 58c full load passive.

    I should first get a new case because I am over my microATX because I have a laptop that I can carry with me everywhere now Gotta get a big fatty case with a ton of airflow.

    Dam that's HOT! I'm surprised it hasn't fried with those temps. have you tried 300x9? I don't recommend the 1/2 multis.

    For some reason it sounds like that Ultra 120 Extreme isn't getting enough airflow.

    It's nowhere close to frying...

    I know the case isn't ideal that is why I want to get a new one. (just started a post in the cases section).

    I might reseat the 120 extreme and check it's all good.

    EDIT: I might try the penny mod too:


    My ambient temperature in my room is 85F/28c right now.

    Rotate the heatsink 90 degrees so the intake of the fan on the heatsink is pointing forward instead of down and then check the temps.

    You can't do that with the 120X on the AM2 socket.

    Can try using an S-Clip. I don't know it will work or not. Other options are setting the fan to pull and blow into the PSU, or getting a Tuniq Tower for the cross flow.

    ^ I am assuming it is that. My only concern would be if it actually works? The mechanism seems much more flimsy.

    Here's what my paste looks like. It seems that there is not much paste in the center where it would be most needed. The 120X probably needs a lapping. What do you guys think?

    Paste looks fine. You need the 120 fan pointing towards the back of the case where the 80mm fan can dump the hot air IMO

    the s compared to the other looks less likely to work good...

    I use those fake credit cards they send you in the mail for applications.

    Ok look what I found!



    ^ You see that scratch and the marking from the CPU at the top left corner? No idea where the scratch came from, but I am going to make a conclusion that the other indent is from too much pressure from one of the sides of the CPU. Just checked the CPU for damage, and it seems fine.



    Going to do a quick lapping and try to get rid of that scratch and even the surface. Will post back in a bit.

    lapping the heatsink, the ihs, and then doing the penny mod would probably help

    Try mounting the fan the way I recommended too. I think that might help more than you think. Thay way it doesn't have to struggle as much to suck air into the fan, and the heat is directly dumped into the PSU and then out of the case.
