    Hey guys, was just wondering any recommendations for good heat sincs to purchase and some paste to go along with it to overclock my 630 pretty decently :D. I'm hoping to get at least like 3.4-3.6 but I'm just an amateur so we'll see. Also does anyone know if newegg.ca accepts prepaid mastercards :D

    Did you fix your voltage issue? What is your budget?

    Budget is important for us to help you out ;)

    Paste: MX-2, MX-3 and OCZ Freeze are my favorite, there is this Shin-Etsu that is quite good too

    I havn't dried anything yet tonight but I began to think about getting a heat sinc to keep the heat down even more if I have even more issues. Do you think maybe I should call AMD as I have a fault chip? Also, my budget for the paste would be around 60-80?

    so long as the card is considered a "credit/debt" card they'll take it (as long as there's enough dough)

    Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme Universal CPU Cooler 120mm...

    that's a massive cooler and it should be at about your budget, and will most likely have its own paste with it

    Where exactly? Montreal or Laval by any chance?

    I suggest you go slow and get a Hyper 212+ or Scythe Mugen 2 Rev.B

    If you want to spend your budget, perhaps a CoolIt ECO from directcanada.com

    Did you make sure you are using the latest bios? They update bios's for CPU updates.

    Unfortunatly I don't think I have a USB stick like you were telling me to do..so I can't really try that option. I'll try tomorrow to look around to see if I have one, too early to be waking everyone up in my house :laugh: (2am here)

    Thanks, reviews were saying the paste isn't very good though so was there any one paste your would recommend. And would this fit in a standard sized case do you think? Seems pretty massive :laugh:

    It's important that your bios is up to date for stability reasons as well. See what you can come up with. :toast:

    Measure from your case and see whether you have about 16 cm between your processor and the end of your case. If it does, then I think you will be able to fit in, because the Tower is rated at 153mm by newegg's specs.
