3. thx for the notice

ive still got intel stock cooler on cpu so i dont expect much but id still like to try to see how far can it go

PS: in my drawer there is a CPU block (for socket A, but moded fot lga775), L30 pump and extreme II radiator, but i havent got time to put this in my case....now i dont know if i should sell these things and buy a decent air cooler (thermalright ultra 120) or put it together :/......is thermalright worth it?
Yes, they are.
Your B3 will probably run a little warmer than the GO's.
Leave the vcore alone for now and up your QDR around 20 to 40 Mhz at a time. Test and monitor your temps closely at each change in frequency.

My understanding is that 1203's USB problems are limited to certain products on the Razer performance mouse/keyboard line. 1205 addressed these issues but reduced 1203's OC functionality. My advice is to use 1203 unless you own Razer products and have problems.

I would like to add that the contact surfaces on the highest-end air cooling solutions (such as the Tr 120) are not machined to a mirror finish. Unless you're willing to do the machining manually (a process known as "lapping"), I would recommend the Zalman 9700, which is an excellent cooler and does not require this process. That is just my opinion, though.

Mine was/is fine and did not require any lapping to perform well. As usual, ymmv.

That's what I had to do on my TR U120X.

how noticable was temperature difference between original surface and lapped surface?

It is negligible unless you are a hardcore obsessed OC tweaker addict. I do not believe that is your case, but prove me wrong. It appears as though you are interested in moderate overclocks for moderate time investment and expenditure.

If this is the case, an upper mid-level cooler like the Zalman 9700 would suffice.

If it is NOT the case - and you are considering seriously overclocking this beast - then, we need to start talking about other investments beyond just CPU cooling.

I would like to know: what is your goal? Why are you overclocking? What is your budget?

Right on the nose.

I lapped mine just fo fun of doing it. Lapped CPU, too. No noticeable difference in temps, of course. Just love shiny things

my budget?...well i got all the things to water cool this cpu, but dont have the time to tinker with it....this is why im kind of interested in that thermalrihgt, but if i think again ill just have to take a little time off and mount wc system, it would be kind of silly to sell somthing if it still performs great

my goal?....im not so much in hardcore ocing, i just want to reach a max with what i have, allthough cpu is B3 there probably is a potential of reaching a solid 3GHz without too much overheating

does any of you have any problems with overheating SB, NB or mosfets?....i got two of those radial mosfet fans which can be mounted on top of the heatpipe
....antec 900 has many fans so there's no daneger of overheating but NB still puts me in a little worry

It may be a coincidence that obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and overclocking (OC) share 66.6% of their acronym-ness, but in my case this is not so. I'm not only OCD about OC'ing, I'm an OCD OC'er.
