    I can't OC (but I still run WCG on all of my rigs) :(
    If I raise the FSB 1 mhz above 1333, when I load Windows ... BAM... BSOD :mad:

    Zotac Geforce 9300-D-E (Mini-ITX, Geforce 9300 chipset, I think it has 3 phase CPU power regulators. With my Shuttle [for the whole week it lasted] it was actually a pretty good overclocker, I ran the Q9400 at 3.1ghz with it [with an external 450w PSU, I didn't want to run an OCed quad on the lame PSU it came with]. However, at the time it died it wasn't OCed, I chose the Zotac board and Silverstone case over a replacement Shuttle because that model reportedly had a lot of issues, and I didn't want a more expensive one) I would hope I could at least get 3ghz :eek: Considering that it OCs reasonably well for others over at [H] and got a 65nm Q6600 to 3.2, I don't think this is too unreasonable.

    Not sure, but my voltage may be a little high. Stable nonetheless.

    These seem to be good on the temperature end of the scale so I may just leave it this way...

    Nope no water, just my DK :) In the summer my room runs hot, and to balance power I do not run my AC. Now that the cooler weather is here, I run with no heater and the temps are low. Its much easier for me to deal with the cool weather than the heat :D

    When I have the time I will attempt to drop the Vcore a little more.

    Nope, your temps are great, I run at about that 24/7 on my Q9400 with no ill effects thus far.

    Ive heard they are pretty good coolers, just like the Xig 1283. @16 its a good price, wasn't there some ridiculous deal on them a few days ago for ~$5 AR?

    EDIT: I agree your temps look fine too though. Unless you wanted a change, or an excuse to buy more hardware :)

    I love Gemini coolers, want one next.

    Jr why are your idle temps so high ?

    Is the ambient temp high??

    It's either the case or the cheap pushpins Panther. Also I'm running passive on the cooler because I'm missing the fanclips :p
