    if you decide to stick intel id recommend D0 920 over 930, cheaper and just as good or better, but if your video editing and price is an object probably amd 6 core is best, that said i OC a 920 on p6t.. my very first OC.. it was so easy, great motherboard to oc with i got 4.494 with that setup

    just got back from building it got it oced to 3.8ghz with 1.25V didn't really do any fine tuning. was maxing out at like 80c temps(prime95) but when doing normal stuff it was around 60c max

    Very nice build. I also have a CM690II and a Scythe Mugen 2 cooler. I will recommend changing the orientation of the cooler, with the "slots" lying horizontal as opposed to vertical. I dropped 2 degrees idle and 4 degrees load in a push/pull config, just by swapping the orientation of the cooler.'

    Once again, VERY NICE BUILD!! :toast:

    great build temps seem slightly high, you wont be going over 3.8 with 1.25v though, need 1.35 ish for 4.0+ doesn't sound like it will be able to with those temps. how man RPM's is your fan on the CPU heat sinc, 1800RPM might help you get 5C cooler if it has a 1300rpm fan on there, there are some really quiet 1800rpm fans available

    Oh yeah i had the parts already just had to build it at his office

    Yeah i realistically should go back and keep fiddling with the vcore i think it can go lower i just typed that in set some stuff did prime95 said it was getting late. not for sure on that fan what ever come stock with that mugen2
    EDIT: yeah its a 1300rpm :(

    not to worry 3.8 is the sweet spot for I7's anyway gives the best temp / performance, i can do 1.25v - 1.2v stable with that same exact board and corsair 850 at 3.8 you may yet squeeze a bit more out of it, i keep my 24/7 clocks at 3.8 anyway
