    This is common on several x58 boards I've owned, including Gigabyte, DFI, Foxconn and Biostar.They all double boot once I raise the vcore to any significant extent.

    I'll get a 21x183 since I'm comfortable with that clock...

    Don't mind the volts, this is auto.

    I should be getting my D0 on Monday since it is in the mail now. I am hoping that I will be able to hit 4.3 if not more on it. So Ill wait to see, maybe it will pull me over the 20K Vantage score, thats peanuts compared to Fits

    I tried farting on mine but temps increased immensely... I probably should have wiped it all clean before applying thermal shit.

    that was effin' hilarious dude :laugh: Hey question, do you guys think it is better to apply thermal paste in a thin line across the die, or just a dot in the middle?

    CP I would say a thin line since it always covers my i7 when I put my TRUE onto my chip, and I have no overhang of TIM. Now the i7 has the cores in the opposite direction of the core 2 quads, so you have to apply the thin line in a vertical position instead of the normal horiztontal postition.
    I also did get the same batch as fit the 3849A916 I believe I do not have the box infornt of me right now but that is what I am spposed to be getting.

    Dot in the middle. No need to cover the entire heatsink.

    Since C2D I have always done a thin even spread across the whole CPU, I use a cleaned strip of old credit card to apply it, not tried the "dot" in the middle since my P4 and Athlon 64 days.

    I've always found a well seated cooler will do this work for you. ;)

    Yes, mostly but i found sometimes that it may not take the compound right to the edges, I spose it's just personal preference.

    Should be able to do the same with less voltage.
