Gearing up for first DICE run

Wanted to make sure I have everything set


CPU & GPU pots
(included wth insulation and mountings)
shop towels
clear coat nail polish (is PCB laquer better?)
denatured alcohol
zip ties

I know about mounting first to wait for temps to see if you mounted correctly.
Im pretty sure I have my methodolgy down from reading all the DICE faq's/walkthroughs about 200x.

What I was wondering is does anyone have any particular tips from there runs they want to share with me? I am going to be benching just CPU the first time (e8400 & e2160) in vista for wprime/pcmark05/pcmarkvantage.

I have 3 P5B Dlx's I could do it on or a Gigabyte X38 DQ6. Which would be the better choice?

Re: Gearing up for first DICE run

test those P5B DLX boards on air first man

as long as they are C2 you should be able to get at least one of them to give you some crazy good FSB

Re: Gearing up for first DICE run

well the first P5B maxed out at about 560FSB... i was very dissapointed, but I guess maybe I can just bench my qx6850 on it.

The second one is dead I missed a thumbscrew sitting on the board from when I mounted and it was sitting on some components near the south bridge. I turned it on and *zap* smelled like a wet dog in the sun. I quick turn everything off, and but nothing will get it to reboot. I checked all other compnents and cpu and gfx and ram are all ok *phew* luckily I only paid about $50 US a piece for these, so losing 1 isnt that bad. I just wish I couldve tested for maxfsb :/

the third one will be going under the maxfsb treatment tonight and tomorrow
