Asus Triton 79 Amazing

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Is it worth it?

I want to Overclock my Q9450 to 3.8ghz and not run too hot.

My current Coolmaster Gemini II makes it so I run too hot, even with both Antec Tri-cool fans blowing on high. But, when running on stock, I can be idling at 29C with fans on low.

Is my Coolmaster crap, or am I just trying to clock too high?

I'm buying a new case and felt perhaps it was time for a change away from the chunky Gemini II, but if there's nothing wrong with it I may as well keep it, because it does seem pretty good.

Damn, I hate coming up to new purchases because I worry too much!

See this about the Triton 77 model:
