I can't unlock 4th core (/cry) so no point in worrying about that, just take advantage of the 3 I have.

Is there a way to monitor my CPU temps as well? And what temp is optimal? (about all i can see temp wise is my graphics card which runs about 70C with fan at about 50% on full load, COULD get it down to 60C at full load if i get the fan at 100% but its loud as hell)
Stick with dual channel for AMD.

@asmola~ yeah its a GREAT case, even with those 4 large fans its not that loud running them at full speed, and on a full load (stock settings) my case doesnt get over 35c (would be lower if i ran gpu fan at 100% but that thing is way to loud ) I wouldnt be suprised if i could get my CPU up to 3.8 when i get proper cooling for it.
Which exact OCZ's do you have? The dividers usually are ratios is the BIOS the coincide with each divider.

Software for reading Cpu temps :
Speedfan
EVEREST Ultimate Edition
Core temp (Recommended)
AMD Overdrive
Asus PC probe
HWMonitor

You will find that unlike the old dual core's you will only find 1 Temp reading unlike my old athlon that gave 2.
Also temp readings can be off by about 6'c, so take the reading with a pinch of salt.

BTW: 70-60'c at load is cool! My 3870 hit 90'c overclocked at 100% fan speed which is very noisy!

I agree. Video cards can reach 90c safely. Although i raise my fan to 70% keep it at 58c full load. I noticed anything above 70% on smaller fans reaches a point of entropy that isnt worth going above.

Alright go into the bios and set it to the divider that coincides with 800MHz(1600MHz dual channel). Mattering on the overclock you may wanna go down in the divider to have more head room for pushing your NB and RAM, also you may be able to get tighter timings.

My brother has the 3850 at stock speeds it runs cooler than mine, it runs at 70'c load and is nearly silent even under load.

For my GPU fan is noisy at 4% (no joke) and i use 2% for 2d mode as is quite (a little noisier than my zalman). I find that 40% is the point were dBA rises but CFM does not (40%=Point of diminishing returns). The design is poor for these type of blower fans. I think what i will do is Rip out the stock fan, wire up an 80mm fan to my controller and stick it onto of the hole where the old fan was, so it blows down though the heat sink. although this would take up more than one slot, making the point of buying a single slot Gpu nil. Luckily i have nothing bellow and a sound card above. Sound good?

Yup, sounds like it would help. Alternatively, if youve got the money and really like your current video card you could buy an aftermarket cooler. I personally dont game enough and have too crappy of a card to put that much effort into it. Let me know how it goes.

Ok i dont get this at all... I've tried OCing my system but after i do it will never load or it did load but didnt register the overclock at all. I've tried 300x10.00 300x11, 300x10.5, 400x8.0, 200x15.00, and a few other combinations to get it around 3.2-3.3GHz and nothing worked. it'll either black screen me on load, or lock up with a dos cursor blinking at me on a black screen.

i think my amd hates me...
