    What case?

    I have the P180 and I am very satisfied. Its not a case for watercooling though if you are thinking of doing that in the future.

    Problems OC [Heating?]

    how much Thermal interface material did you use when you installed the cooler? you only need a very small BB size drop on the IHS, then mash the heatsink on it to spread it out. I used to use to much and it raised my temps by 5-10C depending, so this could definately be your problem...
  6. I know its a little off topic but I wanted to see what everyone thought of this little thing: http://www.koolance.com/shop/product_info....products_id=251 I know that some german company was making a ram watercooler, but it didnt look like it would accomodate 4 dimms. Now that another maker has thought to make such a component, I wonder if other makers will pick this up. It seems like a smart idea with since most of us need active ram cooling because we push it over 3v... Just wanted some thoughts on it

    Noob Temp Question

    thats the rule I go by, right at 50, and spikes to 52 are ok, but max...

    Unofficial Opteron 939 Thread

    Wow... thats a 939 chip? what kind of cooling is on that bad boy? I think that there should be a Opteron Overclocking forum in here, it seems that this has (or will) out grow a single thread! (of course, make it all unofficial and all.)

    AMD 64 3.500+ safe oc ?

    It differs from cpu to cpu. Depends on your RAM, Stepping, core, voltage, temps, and about a million other variables. Example, alot of people have been able to take a venice 3000+ to 2.7GHz with 1.55v, and I have to use 1.55v just to get mine stable at 2.5ghz. and I cant get it any higher without instability. It just depends and you have to figure it out for yourself. Generally, you dont want your temps over 50c and you dont want your voltage over 1.6-1.65 (and thats an absolute maximum)
