I am flirting with 2.66 - and it feels good :)
31 sec superpi in my 9300:
and my 4 minute crash of prime95
and my cpuid screenie:
Now, a little about what I did:
I recieved my ebayed 2.0 p-m 755 in the mail today. I ordered my arctic silver 5 a couple days before winning my ebay auction, and yet it hasn't come yet. being my impatient self, I started modding anyways.
The first thing I did was ground the bsel pin and the vid pin:
That didn't work at all
Windows would not boot unless I disabled speedstep in bios.
Then I tried the vid4 pin, although stomper already said it ran too hot I thought I would give it a shot...
This made my PC much happier.
Now I am thinking I need to do one of two things: either ground another lower vid pin or maybe actually put a real thermal soluction on it. or both. Right now my max thermal reading is 74c 5 minutes into prime. I did not even re-apply a thermal pad or anything; I just stuck the previously used chip on the previously used thermal pad and let er rip.
I'm thinking I can probably stabilize this thing with some AS5. More results to come. When I stabilize it, I will post.
Oh and I plan on announcing this as a world record for a laptop... If I am wrong someone please tell me now and save me the embarrasment
thanks all for the guidance, inspiration, disbelief, and the other things that drive one to do something crazy
