    Seasons Greetings,

    If I had to do it again, I think I would get the CL7 Gskills 1600mhz ECO 1.35v. At the time, they were about 25% more than the ones I bought, but after pulling the trigger, I later found a place that sold the CL7 ECO's for only 15% more.

    My personal comfort zone for my C2D was about 60c, and I guess I just used that as my comfort zone for i5. I was testing the box at home on top of my desk. If I had placed it on the floor, the ambient temp would have dropped by 1-2c as would the load temp. Plus I have it a little bit warmer in my house than the office, so I am pretty sure if I had done the tests in the office, the load temps would have been lower still. Then again, I would have to increase voltage to address 4.0ghz, do more testing, and I don't feel like R&R the HS's on my Asrock and the P55A.

    I tried to tighten the timing to 8-9-9 with 1.66v last night and I got memtest errors on test 2. I was too tired to try tweaking it. While I would like having the extra processing power, I have always been a low voltage, low noise, and low temp junkie so I think I will just leave the settings as it is because I have to get this rig to the office and put it to use. I think it is a pretty balanced setup for its intended use. Thanks for the tips though.


    All the best.

    Yep, I suppose pushing it any further would be a waste for a general purpose work station.

    If possible, when you get time, could you post a few bench results? Perhaps SuperPI 1M and 32M along with the Everest RAM and Cache Benchmark.
