Not to big of a deal really. I just swopped out the 4pin molex Green fan for one of my other Blue 3pin molex connector fans from one of my other 3 Zalman CNPS 9700 LED HSF's. Here is a link to the picture from my BNBB project showing the new color on the Zalman. I'd like to put a better fan on it or maybe mod it w/a shroud to control airflow to see if I can get better cooling out of it. IDK when I'll try it but one of these days.

Here's my cpu-z validation

I did run into some strange issues after a OC caused a reboot, I was pushing 4GHz.
nVidia nTune Performance stopped allowing a core/multiplier change. I checked my BIOS settings and they hadn't changed. Tried a uninstall of all nvidia drivers and a reinstall. No luck. Swapped some memory just in case, even took out one of my 8800GT's. System was really borked, even the keyboard stopped responding in the BIOS and I'm using a P/S2 board. Even tried a system restore, nada. I think I just somehow corrupted some files beyond repair.
Did a quick reinstall of OS on another drive and everything is back to normal.

I also ditched my seemingly less than efficient water cooling system consisting of a Swiftech Storm WB, Swiftech 355 pump, 1/2 tubing and a 2x120 Black Ice radiator. It really made swapping any parts a huge PITA. I bought a Corsair H50 water cooling system to replace it and I have to say it cools very well. I'm still doing some tests and evaluations but I'm seeing about a 2-3C improvement over my last setup. Granted, my radiator top mount in the Antec 900 case was less than optimal and airflow wasn't the greatest over it so the improvement doesn't surprise me.

The only knock would give the kit is the mounting instructions for the AM2/AM3 have these little plastic inserts for the mounting bracket and the instructions illustrate them to go in a certain way but they actually go in opposite of howw they are illustrated. Also they could have used screws with the same diameter and thread pitch as the majority of stock screws in use for the back plate. If they did, I would not have had to remove my motherboard to install the rather flimsy plastic back plate and removing the stout metal back plate.

Rayzor_uk, I would start off with this AM2 overclocking guide. It's extremely helpful and very in depth. It should shed some light on most of your questions: http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ocket-am2.html.

Let us know if that helps

DannyOcean, I'm glad the reinstall helped out. Sometimes after so much overclocking and crashing ect the OS just eventually takes a dump.

Keep pushing to 4Ghz

Good luck
