Ok I just got my rma back from asus , i installed everything right and i overclocked the cpu 166x13 = 2163mhz , core volt is set to 1.7 volts and its 50 C, my question is , this is normal right ? i just installed the heatsink so it takes time for the temps to drop ? Also is it safe to overclock that much with a slk800 ?

it was the thermal grease it came with the slk800 , i just installed it and everything maybe 20 minutes ago , on a new cpu and heatsink. and my asus probe shows up 50 degrees it doesnt go higher then that. Do i have to wait till the thermal grease sets in ?

oh yeah, that thermal grease ain't too good, try to get some better stuff cause it really can do miracles. and of course a nice fan on it would help (you're using a fan on it right :D)

yeah iam using the thermaltake fan off my Thermaltake case , I have a vantec tornado 80 mm brand spanking new , but its to loud :( can the tornado be controlled with a hardcano fan controller on the tt case?

EDIT: I had [email protected] running i turned it off and now it went back down to 46 degrees C and its dropping. I had folding on full cpu usage.

Test the tornado with it. You dont have to keep it on but i bet youll see some dramatic drops in temps.

WOW you were right , installed the vantec just to test and couldnt believe it. but its still to loud :( anyone know of a fan that is like the vantec but much quiter? or a fan controller that can control the vantec, also whats the lifespan of a athlon doing 45-50 max load ? thanks for your time.
