I'll have to look into removing the CrazyCool, especially if it could affect the warranty of the board.

I have been told that the Scythe Infinity is a suitable candidate for the job and doesn't need the backplate.

Got the CNPS9700 NT from ME and can't use it. Bloody thing doesn't work with the 'CrazyCool' back-plate installed.

Anybody know something that will work with the DQ6 and 'CrazyCool' plate in place?

Thought I just might add one thing regarding the temps with the crappy Intel cooler included with the Celeron D CPUs.

Temps in a very cold room running overclocked @ 3.384GHz with no-load are 41C. Again, this room is stupid cold, I guessing around 10C.

Start up prime95 and use the In-place Large FFTs test the temps shoot up to 70C+. I keep shutting the program down as soon as it goes there but this is stupid.

I am on my way to ME to get a CNPS9700 NT and slap it on right now to see how things go. I will update soon.

Got a little further now. Turned off darn near everything in the BIOS.

Any recommendation on what voltages to run, especially how far I should push the FSB and (G)MCH?
I have the RAM at stock since I am not even running it at rated speed.
FSB voltage is up by .15V
(G)MCH voltage is up by .1V
CPU voltage seems very messed up. I have set it to 1.45 in BIOS by both Speedfan and CPUZ report about 1.39.

Here is the CPUZ screenshot.

Just an update.

I have installed ET5 and have been able to slightly push the CelD higher but as soon as I change anything in the BIOS the thing freaks out. By that I mean it just keeps half-posting and then restarting.

I will try to post a picture soon. I have not changed anything in the BIOS other than setting the FSB to 266 (stock) the RAM divider to 2.0 (which is what is should be for a Celeron D) and setting the DDR2 voltage up by .2V. No other changes at all to any settings in the BIOS.

System:
Motherboard listed (DQ6)
Kingston 1GB DDR2 667MHz (KVR667D2N5/1G)
Gigabyte 7600GS stock
Intel Celeron D 347 (3.06GHz)

Everytime that I change set the memory multiplier to anything other than AUTO under M.I.B. and then press F10 to save and exit the computer starts resetting itself every few seconds.

It will beep, no post, then reset and do everything over again. I have to pull the battery and clear BIOS to get back to normal. Doesn't matter if I set the value to 2.0 or 2.5 or 3.0 or any of the others.

Any ideas. I have set the DDR2 voltage both .1V and .2V higher with no results.

I have heard some no so great reviews on the CoolIt unit, but I guess since his temps are good...

Hopefully the quality and longevity are good with that unit.

Thanks for the signature catch, I am not used to being up at night.

Are you going to tell us what it is?
