Thing is Air cooling can be quite noisy when trying to keep temps down, i'm rock solid 5hr LinX stable at 3.6GHz but when i under volt my fans for night use, my overclock will crash after 15 mins of gaming. So quite water cooling would be nice.
if you get h2o cooling, make sure you get a big radiator, like 3x120mm, otherwise it can also get loud to keep temps down when stress testing.
i think i have a similar problem with my overclocking, i managed to get 3.5ghz stable with 1.488Vcore but i yet have to see a 3.6ghz setting that doesent bsod p95
any idea why i have to increase the Vcore so much to get higher clocks stable? i might need 1.55V or more to get 3.6ghz stable o_O
maybe your problem is that you have everything on stock when getting higher, might not be the best settings for stability...Edited by kromar - 7/19/09 at 11:42am
