It very well might, Ill see how they do with the big typhoon on them. I know my temps have been holding me back, if I can get them to stay around 55*c @ full load I bet I could easily break 3ghz with my 180 and get my 165 quite a bit higher.
Now if I could just get a lanparty Id be all set. And depending on how it does I might just dedicate my sig rig to folding. After a step up to at least 9800GT hybrids. Hopefully if all goes well Id step up to GTX260 216's.
Hey when you ran your mobo test did you up the voltage on the chipset to get it higher? I got to 336 with no voltage increase.
