    I love my venice chip. Now that I've got my uber water cooling setup, I'm hoping and wishing that I can get her to go as high as 3ghz.

    3GHz erm.... quite impossible for 3200+ :p not unless you are using TEC or phase change :mrgreen:

    Bit of an update guys, i just got my hands on a Zalman CNPS7000 + the backplate needed for s939 motherboards - should go on some time during the weekend and then we'll see if my temps drop a little and go from there :mrgreen:

    What is your stock voltage btw, how come it doesn't show in your CPU-Z post? :?

    Hope I can post mine soon too... :p

    There are some issues with CPU-Z showing the voltage. Use Speedfan to check for the voltage.

    Stock voltage is 1.39 or so says CBId :thumb:

    Well the cooler is on and its seen a nice 10C drop along with some as5 :D

    Ok another update, after leaving the machine folding over night i've seen load temps only get to about 36-38C Much better than the stock cooler and even better considering the heatsink cost me nothing at all :mrgreen:

    Have you considered popping off the IHS? A 3500+ (single core disabled manchester sold as normal AMD64 3500+) stock running on a CM Aquagate mini R120 wif IHS off idles at 32C. The same 3500+ and same cooler with IHS on idles at 38C. However, if you decide to pop the IHS, you gotta file down the legs of your bracket to mount a normal heatsink properly. I had to file the Aquagate legs about less than 3mm to compensate for the height of the removed IHS. It was worth it. Previous max was 2.65ghz 1.45Vcore. After IHS removal, running 2.8Ghz stable at same Vcore.

    Please read more about IHS removal if u decide to do it. For the safety of your new processor.

    I looked removing IHS a few weeks after getting the chip but changed my mind as i didnt have the money if i screwed it up :haha:

    Yeah I think for most people the advantages wouldn't outweigh the benefits :lol:

    I would remove the IHS, but there's a few things that I'm worried.

    1. cracking the core because of crappy waterblock
    2. problem selling it!

    Not bad I can get my 3000+ to 2.5GHz @ 1.4V also. How far have you OC'd that 3200+? Also why did you drop the cpu multiplier? More memory bandwidth?
