    Tried out a little OC'ing with my new AII x2 245. I managed to increase it by 500MHz with no change to voltage, to get 3.4GHz. Temps peaked at 52C after 3 of the most intensive Prime95 runs. It stays around 44C while crunching though, which is better. I could maybe go to 3.6 without any problems but I want to keep temperatures reasonable. Keep in mind that I'm using the stock cooler with stock paste. I didn't want to put any more money into the system right now by buying an aftermarket coolah.

    Idle: (it actually goes lower than that, it's at 27C right now)

    Both fans move the air in the same direction.

    You are right, the outside fan shouild be facing the other direction. The side with the supports is the output. Both fans are trying to blow into the rad that way.

    MP, your rig is so awesome pics dont do it justice. Any chance you could throw up a YouTube video? I'm sure it would get some hits.

    Mostly the Desk Mod, but a tour of the entire setup would be cool.

    Thanks for the mention at the start! :laugh: :roll:

    Also what fans are those in the other side? White blades w/black casing? I'd love to get some of those.

    Nice! I thought about hand painting the blades of some fans but thought it would take to long.

    That is a super sweet setup. It's the best of all worlds. It can be a bench station, case and a desk. I might actually attempt that one of these days, and call the system The Moonpig.

    This is nothing special, but its the rebuild of my other i7 860 in a Beta (OG model) case. RAM is in the mail and I am sourcing a GPU (used to have my 8800GTS). Hopefully my buyer doesn't fall through or its off to CL with it :D
