So after a bit of a wait, some issues with ASUS and my new mobo not liking my Old bios chip too much (got it working perfectly though) I am back and folding strong. I got my shiny new ASUS P8P67 PRO B3 Stepping motherboard back from RMA on Tuesday, and went straight to work trying to get it to work properly. First it wouldn't boot my windows at all (Had to re-order my sata ports and change them to IDE mode to fix). Almost had to do a full re-install and that would have sucked... then, It refused to fold at 4.6GHZ with my original bios chip from the old mobo, but I was able to get that fixed with a bios update and some tweaking with the settings. (Now I have 2 BIOS chips
) And I have also finished lapping both my CPU and Heatsink. GO ME!!! Now I just need a tube of some good TIM, anything will be better than the Dynex shit I am being forced to use right now, and I will probably see an even better temp drop. I went from around (stosk clocks) 115F idle to between 95-100F. I am working on testing my OC idle and loaded. But I really would like to get some decent TMI. I also got bored and lapped a P4 3GHZ proc that I have.
The i7 2600k and the Coolermaster Hyper N250 both lapped.
The P4 lapped.
And a Surprise for you guys.
That white blotch is from my flash...
