Yep, stock cooling. Thermal pad and all.

Just getting some no name case, $30 rebate? Yes please.

Good price for the case $17 can't argue LOL keyboard and mouse as well, even better.
Good temps for a stock cooler. Mite be worth it to invest in a passive air cooler, ya know one of the CPU fans that blow the air across the heat sink towards the back of the case. there fairly cheap and produce good temps under stress.

Bblasphemous, that is an excellent overclock for such a low Vcore. You have plenty of more room for OC'ing.

Good job

Seems upping the voltage even just a bit results in a failure to boot, 2750mhz seems to be the most I can get. I suppose it could be because this is by no means an enthusiast board.

Not complaining though, it makes a pretty noticeable difference in games.

Bblasphemous, did you try running a lower memory divider to rule out any memory frequency issues? You could also run a lower HT multiplier so that it brings it closer to the factory 1800Mhz speed. I can't imagine the motherboard requiring chipset voltage at 234HTT but it wouldn't hurt to test that as well.

Just a few thoughts...

Good luck buddy

I would try to go farther on mine but 2.6 is as far as I am willing to go due to the temps.
