    You may get a higher stable OC if you put a divider on the ram to 166MHz at startup. Set the HT to 3 and try a 10 divider on the CPU. That should allow you to get a higher HTT speed which will increase your scores. I would almost guarantee there is a 100K Aquamark score in that rig, or at least damn close. As for ram timings, backing them off will lessen your benchmark scores, but may give you more usuable MHz in the real world. I would not worry about airflow with what you are describing. I would just make sure your PC is firmly bolted to the floor so it doesn't launch!!

    Everytime I have used dividers I have gotten errors. I can try again tonight. I think the best bench I got was when I was running at 280 FSB with a 166 divider. It was not stable though... I let you know how it goes... Thanks mate

    I have also seen alot of 3700 San Diegos go to about 2.85 or so on air, but they seem to want water to get over 2.9GHz. I am getting one next week myself and cannot wait to see how hard I can push it. And that ram should burn in a little bit more the longer you "abuse" it. My OCZ has also gottne better with slightly less voltages.
