Its not much but it is my first overclock. Only had to bump up the FSB and change memory settings.



Stress tested for an hour, all is good, temps are good.

Nice overclock there man!
I'm sure with that watercooling set up you could crank a bit more juice ;)

Anyway try for 3.6GHz :D

For over all system's temps, fans speeds & voltage monitoring (also controls the fans) Speedfan 4.35
(The 3rd Core temp reading in Speedfan is the 8800GTS GPU temp)

For Core Temp monitoring Core Temp 0.99.3

This pretty much say is all, but in short you're well within the safe range...that's actually running quite cool.
Really with water cooling you can go MUCH HIGHER & still have pretty low temps!
I'd push it to at least 3.60GHz!
But you should be able to clock the processor a bit higher still on default voltages too.
My CPU goes to 3.30GHz with all the voltages set to default & is very stable.
But I wanted FASTER!!! LOL ;)

Try 400x9. That way you can run 1:1 and get DDR800 and be crusing along at a nice 3.2GHz with 1600 FSB.

I have installed fans on both sides of the radiator so it really moves air through it.

The problem I have is this mobo is crap, not many options to do anything I have tried 2 newer BIOS versions and its not any better. I am going to have to go board shopping in a few months.
