Cooling will be your biggest restriction in getting that excellent CPU running higher and faster - Stable. H20 will allow you to go alot further.

Have a read through the FAQs - links in my sig, on Finding the Max and the Asus MB - while the older version Asus has its own way of control in the BIOS ... these will get you started.

Yes , i'd like to go the h20 way but right now i gotta stay air cooling, kinda went overboard on this setup as is lol. What would be a better cpu fan then amds default and as im getting off the board subject, is the stock heatsink good enuf?

Stock is stock and allows for rated performance... Good Air - XP-120/ Tt Big Typhoons and the like all really need high airflow - this equates to noise which you may not be able to live with after a while... but still an easy way of improving.

A critical point will be when you note that you have to increase the Vcore to get stable, often this is due to heat, which is where improving the cooling gets you further... last resort is to hit the Vcore.

The TT Big Typhoon is big. REALLY big. I had to mod my case in order to get proper airflow to the BT. Unless your willing to modify your case, or it is extreamly wide, I'd go for another cooler.
Don't get me wrong, I love my BT. It's just really really BIG and as such it isn't for everyone's rig.

I should have the room, just looked inside the case. Just have to see how far it will sit away from the cpu slot so it doesnt interfere with the memory cards
