Yah, that's right. So was there any setting yet that was stable in games?
And hammermd: OH MY FREAKING GOD YOU RE-USED THE PAD!? That's one of the fastest ways to burn the shit out of your CPU. Those pads are one time use only! Looks like there was still enough goo on it to keep it stable. Get some kind of thermal interface material. AS5 would be the best, but hell, standard goo would work fine if you have any. Take that thermal pad off, get some kind of rubbing alcohol (even 70% works if you have nothing else) and clean all the black gunk off that that thermal pad puts on the heatsink and the core. The actuall CPU chip is the grey, glass like rectangle in the middle (it's silicon, after all). The "beeswax" around it is part of the manufacturing process to keep it on the package, the green ceramic around the chip. As far as voltage goes, mZimm hit the nail on the head, you can only see what the processor is requesting through software, the actual voltage will be changed because you re-routed the power via pin mods. Anyway, once you can get better cooling, I recommend that you ground VID1 and VID0 to give you 1.388v, should be more than plenty. But PLEASE do something about your cooling situation.
MyAOLcrashed, I think the Celerons have the same layout and it should be the same process. Go for it
, but remember that the celerons have reduced cache. What CPU are you running now?
