I have tried, tested, and OC'd using pretty much every method. AS5 has a guide that recommends using a vertical line for quad-core CPUs such as the i7. I have done the pea/bb dot, self spreading it on the CPU, vertical line, and horizontal line on both my i7 960 using a NH-D14 and an older X6800 using a therm. frio. Every method (after a good break-in period) ended up being almost identical. As long as you do each of these right and know how much paste to use ur gonna get the same result...

Just do what you find to be the easiest.

+1, I've done the same and came up with the same results using various TIM.

and the spider looking one as well. The shell design has been out for years, this must just be a new version of it.

If it is only running at 3.8ghz for the superpi score that is quite impressive for a sub-8 second score.

Super pi doesn't take advantage of multi-core setups (it is single-threaded)

http://hwbot.org/rankings/benchmark/superpi?tab=rankings

For wPrime it isn't nearly as impressive

http://hwbot.org/rankings/benchmark/wprime_32m/rankings

With WR scores in the 2second range in 32m (which takes advantage of multi-core setups) it didn't come close (would be ranked in the 600s of CPUs that were air cooled, far worse if you include extreme [LN2/Dice/SS] OCing)

The 210 will get you great FPS in Solitaire but will lag a bit in Pinball and Minesweeper.

I generally go with the one that offers more Amps per rail. If I am choosing between: PSU - 1 rail - 50Amps PSU2 - 2 rails @ 25Amps a piece I go with the first one If the PSU2 had 30 mps each it comes more down to the person, I'd probably still go with the first one as I can't imagine myself pushing that far over the 50Amps to make it matter and with that I won't have to worry about overloading one rail.

Dual channel allows two data channels to be used simultaneously to access RAM. Whilst in theory it sounds great it makes pretty much no difference in practice.markop2003

I thought that was true with a difference between dual and triple channel, but dual vs single makes a difference performance-wise.

I've had these installed for a week now with my new card, they definitely had a nice performance increase (FPS-wise) on my system.

I believe it was around 11000 and change when I ran it last week after I got my 6950 in and flashed it to 6970.
