Just to tell you, your CPU-Z download link is broken.

You can download it from their website: CPUID

I only have screenshots from my XP install.... Ill post my GPU OC when I get the chance.

Current CPU OC (Stock Heatsink and fan, Ran ORTHOS for 8hours and no errors)


Stock Settings....

Installed the new MB, but the Noctua cooler I ordered turned out to be a LGA775/AM2 one, so I have to return it to get the one with LGA1366 mounts.
So... this one is not with a Noctua, but with a Cooler Master Hyper 212.
Vcore of 1.33 is a bit high for 4Ghz, but I forgot to turn it down after trying 4.2Ghz.


Core i7 920 @ 4005Mhz HT:ON
Asus P6T Deluxe V2

@Warfare: High temps? Well... no guts, no glory
Its stable, and no matter what normal activities I throw at it, it stays stable @ 75-80c.
With my usage im not even remotely utilizing all four cores at the same time.

It doesn´t take much to fry an egg. You can even do it with an unoverclocked Apple MacBook, or should I say iCook?

Temp rating.... hmmmm. IFAIK Intel does not garantee stability any higher than 65c, but it takes ~100c before any damage occurs.
So I figure its all OK as long as its stable and it doesn´t exceed ~100c.

Im using OCZ Freeze as thermal compound.

That's funny...I just went thru the whole install routine without it asking me for that. And no trace of the ask toolbar installed after I completed the setup.


Makes no mention of it here either:

Install and Remove
Since version 1.51, CPU-Z includes an installer. The installation offers several advantages in comparison to the stand-alone version :
  • The installation creates program entries in the start menu and on the desktop.
  • The kernel mode driver used by CPU-Z is installed on the system, that avoids to install / remove it at every run. That makes the process more stable, slightly faster, and also allows to run CPU-Z without the administrator rights (please note that the installation requires administrator privileges however).
Installation

Run the setup executable file, and let it guide you for the installation process. The setup installs a service, that is started the first time that you run CPU-Z. After that first run, you can run CPU-Z from any account, even without administrator privileges.
Removal

You can remove the program either from the Add or Remove Programs window (from Settings, Control Panel), or choose Uninstall CPU-Z from Start menu, Programs, CPUID, CPU-Z.
