    Time for watercooling.

    well his setup is 14C cooler than my I7 3.8 1.25 volts aircooled megahalems at load with 2x 1800RPMs, not sure how much cooler water is supposed to be than air, but id say 14C is pretty good Craigleberry: think you'll try upping the volts to 1.4+ and see how high you can crank her?

    well if hes gaming under 2560x1600 he may see marginal increases from all the stupid videos i watched, but personally i dont see the point, unless just dicking around with crap is fun (which it is) is not 480 good enough for 1900 x 1200? if i had that much power id be opting for triple screens...
