Looks like a very nice, clean layout. I like it.
I still stand by the phrase

Thanks! Took me a long time to set everything up in the case just right but I'm glad I did, the xtra work with the p180 is worth it in my opinion as the air flow and cooling is superb. I'm gonna stick with the 2.85 Ghz oc I think!

Any more input? Still can't make up my mind.....2.85Ghz 1.42vcore ram at 3,3,3,5, 1T@712Mhz or 2.62Ghz 1.39 vcore ram at 4,4,4,12 2t@1050Mhz. Temps are fine at both. Also, for some odd reason this morning my PC kept freezing at either OC when I tried to post here? I can run prime95 for 12 hours straight no errors, but when I tried to post my PC would hang after typing a few letters.....any idea whats up with that?

Edit : Ok, it seems whenever I try to post a message here at fsb's over 280 my PC will freeze, its stable otherwise, but I have no idea why going to the post screen and typing a few keys crashes my system everytime at that fsb. Turned it down to 2.63Ghz (263x10, ram at 4,4,4,12,22 2T@1051Mhz. Seems this ram can be pushed a lil further than I thought! Might end up sticking with this because of the instability at 280+ fsb. I put both chipset voltages to 1.4, but that didn't do anythign for the problem.

Any idea why windows will lock up quickly over 280 fsb, during cold boot? When I turn off my pc thats been off all night and try to do 285+ fsb i always lock up in windows. I need to restart my pc a few times and after letting prime 95 run in the beginning it seems stable. Does my chipset need to "warm up" or something? Because it seems it can OC much better after its been on for a little while. As im typing this im prime95'ing 286 x 10, ram 3,3,3.5 1T@714Mhz and its fine so far.

Edit : in order to run 280+ fsb I need to turn my pc, hit reset, as it won't boot up if its been off all night, and then let it warm up for a minute in the bios screen, then I can go on my merry way! Think I've max'ed this cpu out at 2.85 Ghz 1.44vcore. Once I push it to 2.86 upping vcore to 1.47 doesnt even stabalize it, and the heat starts getting real high after 1.46vcore, going 55+ under full load. At 2.85 with 1.44 vcore, ram 3,3,3,5,1T@712Mhz, im maxing out at 52C in prime95, 46-49 normal load. Ram won't pass memtest at those timings at 288x10, so I think I have taken the cpu and ram to their limits. DEFINITELY happy with my final OC. When I bought this processor I thought maybe I might OC it to 2.4 or so.......never did I imagine I'd be able to run it at over fx62 speeds , and with only just .5 more vcore!

Anyone using an M2N32SLI-Deluxe been able to break 300 HTT? I can boot into windows up til about 299 HTT, but windows will crash til I bring it back to around 293. Also, does anyone else have this cold boot problem? I need to let my mobo warm up or something a minute before it will stabalize at 280+ HTT.
