Yeah that sounds about right! I have my C3 965 in my wifes PC downstairs and it has the stock cooler on it and it hits about 64*c "IF" I run P95 Blend and Idles around 36*C. The reason that it idles lower than your though is because I downclocked it to 3.0Ghz and lowered the vCore until I get the Zalman CNPS10X Flex that I won off of eBay this past week. It's coming from Canada, IIRC it was sold by the "hardwarecunucks.com" website. They said that it's an open box item but is flawless. So I figured that with 2 Scythe Slipstream 120mm Fans in Push pull should just about be the right sound and cooling level for her down there in the living room. I turned her PC into an HTPC. Basically a new build. Want it "Cool and Quiet".

Have you tried Lowering your Dram Drive Strengths? It will Not enhance speed but it may stablize the Speed that you have if loosened. It's worth a trying! Also, if you add to much voltage to the Ram it can become unstable. remember that the more voltage added the more that heat is created and that can cause the Ram to malfunction. Now if you had OCZ Flex EX Ram or something comparable, you could basically crank the volts all you wanted without worry about heat being an issue... I have a set of 2000Mhz CL8 Stocks that can handle any voltage that this board can offer.... JMTC though...

most people with this board use the two blue slots first. two reasons for this, the blue slots seem to give better overclocking and second gives you more room if you have a huge aftermarket heatsink that may block the black slots

just check your space if you are planning on buying a HSF for this board and you are going to use 4 sticks of ram, it might not fit i only have 2gbx 2 sticks in my blue slots and i would need to go to watercooling if i want it all to fit if i get another 2 sticks.

Which DRAM Drive Strengths were you referring to specifically? I think I have all of mine set on auto. Do you have any recommendations on what to set them as? I have 2 sticks of 2GB Mushkin DDR3 1600mhz RAM rated 7-7-7-20-27-1T with 1.85v-1.95v as normal voltages.

I installed 1.9 and it fixed my issues with certain NB freq. causing no POST and I like the new look. I don't have any eSata devices tho, so I wouldn't know of any probs with that : /
