Well a larger case would help your cooling also, with a typhoon & larger case then you can get better temps, hence more overclock, I think someone got one of those northys close to 4ghz.

With some upgraded cooling, weather its an XP-90 or 120 heatsink and fan or watercooling, it would definately help you up your OC. What are your temps when overclocked? I dont know what that cooling is never heard of it!

That is a darn good overclock if stable, I think you might need to go phase change to get up to 4 though.

The best I have ever made (On Air) is 3.8GHz fully stable at Prime95 (2 Instances 24 hours).

I have made 4.0GHz more than a few times with 3.2 Northwoods but they never Primed stable (2 Instances 24 hours) and usually the second core would fail after so many minutes. Now some don't mind if their system does not pass prime95 stable and are more concerned about having the 4.0GHz, but I was taught early on overclock to stability.
