    Default 4GHZ OC how is it ?

    took me 3 weeks to fully stablize it but now it 100% stable :)

    Congratulations!!!

    BTW, your temps are amazing... 37C at 100% load...
    That is a testimony for your HSF for sure.

    thanks but where did you see 37 on load ?
    1 pic of every test is load and the other is idel

    lol @ me.. I looked at the wrong pics. oops... never mind.

    although, I have a C2D and at full load at 500x8 I see temps ~56C, so, if my understanding about chips is correct, 66C is good for a 2000MHz FSB on a C2Q...

    of course, I may be talking above my knowledge base too...

    you are, after all, running at almost a full volt higher than I am for the same Clock x Bus.

    Still much grats... as I have been told, feels good to do something right, yes?

    yea it dose :) now to WCG
    and yes for a C2Q at thos volts i think the temps are ok (i orderd a new fan hopefully it will help)
    and C2Q need more volts to be stable at same clock as a C2D (and my starting point is low 2.66GHZ )

    I feel you...

    So, new fan then what? What is the limit that the 9400 can be pushed? Are you going to try to get there or satisfy yourself with 500x8? I have been told that the EP45-UD3P is good for 2200MHz... so that leaves you some headroom. I myself am afraid of suiciding my CPU... I don't think I am going to push higher than 500x9.... although its AWFULLY tempting to think about crazy things... 550x9 anyone... on air....?

    hahaha, i feel you... i just get that far away look sometimes...

    dude, you have 6 120mm fans in your case? are any of them exhausting? i dropped an average of 7C idle and 13C load temp when I added a top exhaust 120mm.

    my most powerfull fans are at exhausting station :) (1 slip stream 199RPM ,1 AC 1500 RPM and s-flex 1900RPM)

    and 4 intake fans (2 on front [i did some moding to add another fan in front] bothe fans that came with the case ,1 on the side door allso fan that came with the case and 1 on the bottom a TT THUNDERBLADE)
