Nice low budget build, I love the little case. Maybe I could try and build a rig for me for use in my barracks

I have the same board with the 530. Very easy to overclock. This was my first build and over clock. Right now its overclocked to 4.0ghz. I've had it up to 4.4 ghz but temps were reaching 70C so I backed it down. All this with a cheap psu of 420w of power. Idle temps at 25C and up to 60C. Core voltage idle is 1.2 and under load jumps to 1.42. I have multiplier at 22 and bus speed is upped to 182.

What cooling are you using on it?

My first build was the i5, but seriously this i3 at such a cheap price I don't see how these aren't flying off the shelves.

I eagerly await all the "my i3 rig won't post" threads six months from now. Soooo many people not following voltage guidelines...
