I will post pics and OC info soon Still running stock cooling right now just booted it up last night and it is running great. I don't have net at home so it will be a couple days or so on the picks. I am suprised at how well stock cooling is doing in the Aspire X-Cruiser case. (I did cut out the rear and front fan ports that may have helped a little) It is running 38C at idle and 46C at full load house temp is 22C. Thank you guys for all your advice and help. See System specs below to see the setup I finally went with.

So far I am running the Stock heatsink and fan that came with the cpu and the stock fan on the gpu. i am running five case fans (2 80mm in front of case with ports cut out. 1 80mm in the top port and one on the side port with the airduct installed and pushed as close to the cpu fan as possiable. the last fan is a 120mm in the rear of the case I also cut out this port and added a blade grill.) All fans are running full blast, noise level is pretty low actually. temps are according to the Asus pc probe 2 software.

Buy the way I went with the G-skill mem as suggested not the Corsair xms see specks below for this system I did keep the Aspire power supply for now but may trade up later. I also spent a lot of time with wire routing this may be helping the temps I will try and post some pics saturday. I played around with the over clock last night I am running at cpu multiplier 7, vcore 1.35, mem volt 2.1, 4-4-4-12 timing, cpu frequency 300, memory frequency 950 (I think), These settings are from bios. Windows shows the processor speed at 2.8ghz and cpuz shows the rated FSB 1400. I'll upload a Screenshot Saturday when I upload the case pics. I ran 3dmark06, and prime95 at the same time for 3 hours (prime was set to max heat mode) and the highest temp reading I ever got was 47C.

Heres a screen shot of my stable over clock with stock cooling I am going to add the following CPU Cooler next week. (Unless you guys change my mind. And thanks for the Gskill mem advice that stuff over clocks great.) And then I will post a new screen shot I am sorry for not getting this up sooner and I promise pics of the build will be up tomorrow.

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835185027

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811999344

The Temp shown in the Screen shot is at Idle the extreme Load temp is 51 but under nomal gamming and operation it never goes Higher than 46.

(Extreme Load acheived running Prime 95 set to the center selection (max heat) and the Heat utility that comes with Mother Board Moniter 5 running at the same time this makes both C2D processors run at 100% untill you shut down the programs. I ran this for about 8 hours with now errors and I set the alarm on MBM5 to 52 C and it was never triggered.) I ran Prime 95 on max mem mode overnight and had no errors either.

(Normal Operation Oblivion on ultra settings, NWN2 max settings, Pinnacle Studio, Photoshop 7 etc.)

Once I install the new CPU heatsink and Fan I will adjust my Overclock again my goal is to have the extreme load temp stay around 45 that should keep the system running smothly under normal conditions for years to come.

Looking good so far

Once you get that nice cooler (good choice, but if you can find a Tuniq Tower in stock somewhere, that's the better cooler), you can push it more. You probably will have to put that RAM on a less aggresive divider though when you get much higher

Here are the Build Pics as promised and 3DMark05 Score which also shows the graphics card overclock (optimal setting). I also ovclocked the graphics card in the bios to 120mhz on the pci express. I am planning to get an after market Cooler for it as well. Some of the Pics are attached to the Post I made previously.
