  1. The 140mm fan that came on the Thermaltake Frio Advanced was poorly designed and the blades actually stick out too far from the housing and will collide with what it's connected to. Really stupid, not sure if that's your problem but I definitely had to use a couple of washers to space the fan out from the heatsink or else it would bang together.

  2. I really like my Vertex 3 120GB. Got it from Tiger Direct when prices started falling like crazy, got it for $99 before rebate. I don't think you can go wrong with OCZ; their products are top notch and the focus pretty much all on storage now.

  3. There's only so much you get to learn by us simply telling you exactly what settings to punch in. Look through your motherboard's user manual and learn what each thing may mean for that board (some manufacturer's may use different terminology for the same thing).


    The chip is only stable as it is. We can't tell you what exactly it will do and where it will hit a wall/become unstable. That is something you have to find out by yourself. I already told you what voltage would be the max you should hit, but seeing as how you're still on the stock cooler I wouldn't touch voltages until you get something more suitable. It's not that 60°C is already high, it's that even a small increase in voltage can make a large jump in temperatures. It's really not worth it. If you want 4GHz then you should get a better cooler (even $30 would be a lot better than the stock and provide more overhead). I'd rather my chip be unstable on its own terms and find its limit rather than having to top at 80°C and just being worried about temps.
