    How cold do you mean? I currently load @ ~50c. I plan on a new cooler (Mugen2 or H50) at some point, but I can't afford one now

    You still have my offer for the Fort120 if you need it. I no longer need to sell it but will if it will help you out. If you don't want/need it then its going on the Pentuim D :p

    take your time i still have about a week atleast till i can get the WCing done and then maybe a few days to get it "tweaked" If you did buy it from me i would grab a new rad (one that is copper) I am not crazy about using a Aluminum rad with a copper block.but then i may just end-up WCing the Pentuim D if i did that :laugh: its a vicious circle.

    @ [Ion] If you are thinking on a mugen2 take a look at the size of this thing.

    Now THAT is the proper way to fry a mosfet. lol

    Been there done that bro. Hope you get it squared away.

    Oh, and for the record, just because you can, definitely means you should. That's what warranties are for. :D

    Wow, owned. =/

    In other news, I tested my shiny new Athlon II 240 at 3.5GHz with OCCT Linpack for 7.5 hours last night. The test went well.

    some people provoke this, due to no case ventilation.... some even let their rigs even run,if a wood oven is approxematly 2 metres away... how shall they know, it happened thru OC?:D
