Dunno, I must be lucky. It's not Primed for more than an hour yet, I don't have the time to do it, but at around christmas I'm going to push this rig as far as possible.. I reckon if I had the motherboard's manual I could get some more voltage with some soldering and break the 2GHz barrier.. max I can get it to boot to is 1.95GHz, but I'm holding off for a bit until I get HDD problems sorted
I put the other PSU in and so far it's looking alright. I even managed to take my heatsink off my CPU for the first time since I put the PC together, the amount of thermal paste on there was pathetic! I was able to clean it off with a couple of wipes with a cloth. Needless to say, I put some AS5 on there.
