    Have you ran any stability test on it?
    Watch core temps under load.

    I've ran OCCT. Temperatures of the cores were around 70-75 C. But in 5 minutes OCCT stops with the warning "CPU is too hot!".
    I've ran also prime95 for a few minutes... temperatures around 80-85... but then i've stopped, cause I don't want to burn my CPU... :) Maybe I should stress it for an hour?

    It is too hot, either get an aftermarket cooler or settle for lower clock.
    What are prime temps for stock settings?

    Temps without OC (I've monitored temps with AIDA64):

    Idle temps:
    Motherboard 38 C (100 F)
    CPU 25 C (77 F)
    CPU #1 / Core #1 55 C (131 F)
    CPU #1 / Core #2 55 C (131 F)
    CPU #1 / Core #3 55 C (131 F)
    CPU #1 / Core #4 55 C (131 F)

    Running Prime95 for about 5 minutes:
    Motherboard 39 C (102 F)
    CPU 49 C (120 F)
    CPU #1 / Core #1 77 C (171 F)
    CPU #1 / Core #2 73 C (163 F)
    CPU #1 / Core #3 74 C (165 F)
    CPU #1 / Core #4 77 C (171 F)

    Stock temps are ok, OC are high. It is up to you joe high is acceptable of course. Persinaly I'd rather Prime95 temps under 70, not more than 72.

    OK. I will OC just a little. :)
    What about voltages? Should I set them all to auto? I have a feeling that it doesn't matter what I use for CPU Vcore and DRAM voltage in my case... or am I wrong? Now I have CPU 1.25V, MCH Core 1,2V and DRAM to 2.0V.

    What aftermarket cooler do you suggest?
    Would this do OK? Hladilnik Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme Rev.2 (CPAR-027) - mimovrste=)

    Not the best cooler out there.
    Best CPU Cooler Performance Q2-2010
    Prolimatech Megahalems and 12 Other Coolers for Intel Core i7 Overclocking.
    I have just ordered the Zalman CNPSX10 Performa for a UD3L board in mid-tower case, will post pics when it arrives.
    Pictures of Scyth Mugen 2 on UD3L board in mid-tower case here. It's big and not too easy to install, but rev 2 has a new retention kit which should be easier to install.
