    Nice overclock you have there. Your temps are a tad high though for your cpu. I'm pretty sure you could get about 6-8 degrees lower with another hsf. Which one are you currently using?

    KT2 Combo-L KT266A / VT8235 motherboard... Nice chipsets for the day, but, I am wondering why you went with that old of a chipset design. I agree with Renegade, the temps are a bit high.

    BONEHEAD, nice overclock and nice rig (10,000RPM SCSI!!), but you gotta ditch that Dragon Orb! Go to NewEgg and grab a Vantec AeroFlow or a Thermalright SK-7-- both can be had for about $30 shipped.

    Well, that's what I'd recommend, at least. ;)

    Yea i agree too he should get a new hsf, probly the thermalright sk7, its darn good. But if your mobo doesnt have those holes around the socket, too bad :(. Thermaltake is good too, or atleast i think so. I got a volcano 9 with a ducting mod and i idle around 30c, and 34c load.
