Hi Steve I'm totaly despondented by Quicksilver 2002 duad 1.4 Ghz Gigadesigns upgrade. When I got the copper shim ans aquagate R80 I was starting to convert watercooling. I finalize today. When I was trying the system....crashed. I decreased cpu speed to 1.33. it was ok. (with original giga I was 1.67 with perfect performancw). And now too high pemperature cpu. So What on may hand I'm getting worsed. Maybe I did somethin wrong. Should I have cleaned cpus firstly? I just added Arctic Silver 5. Around the cpus have some kind of sponge.... Should I have take down....I don't know. . What am I suppose to do ...thank You very very much
How did you mount the radiator, do you have pics? As you see I mounted mine on the bottom of the case. The shim has to touch the actual chips perfectly flat, and you need to put paste on both sides of the shim, it needs paste between the shim and the aquagate housing as well. Also the shim needs to be pushed against the cpu's tightly but don't go too mad or you can damage the chips. The sponge will get compressed.
Dear Steve Now my Quicksilver 2002 duad 1.4 Ghz Gigadesigns is working 40°C - 42°C . I think it's ok. Interesting thing is R67 chips on gigadesigns card (side on giga...). .... it's too hot I mean 70°C - 80°C . Is it normal? Also gigadesigns's copper bars (side on giga...). Thank You for your advices and helps...
Dear Steve When I trying to make 1.53 GHz . It's getting worse....Should I change voltage jumper ( How?) or no touch (damage the cpu?). I saw ..You did 1.5 with 33°C Thank You. I'm very pleased cause You and your site are very helpfull.
That particular processor would never go to 1.53 as the level 3 cache bottles out at 1.5. I did get 1.47 out of it though and that was completely stable. I tweaked the voltage up 1 notch to achieve that.
My Gigadesigns two Motorola 1250MHz 7455 Processors ..I can not find CPU Voltage Jumper Settings. Is it the same as your 7447A CPU Voltage Jumper Settings ? What is default now. What has to be with 1.47 Ghz. Thank You All...
To the best of my knowledge, your processor has the same jumper settings as indicated in the post on this site. The ones that differ are the earlier "M" series of Giga processors generally on a red board. I suspect that your std voltage will be in the 1.45-1.5 range. If you are overclocking, it will be trial and error. Leave the voltage as std to start with, then if you get freezes or kernel panics, increase to the next voltage level till your computer is stable. Always make a visual note of where the jumpers are so you can revisit a particular setting.
