because, i7 950 with HT Enabled, 3.9 OC with 1.32 Core + Stock Intel Heatsink + Prime 95 = 90C to 100C real fast.

Not 80C stable. It does spike to around 95C, but doesn't go beyond limits that would cause damage, which is 100C. Point is, 3.9 is possible for me on the stock HS.

Would another GTS250, or a pair of them, work best? Just pair up the current one with the others? I'm thinking that may be a good idea, because of the relatively inexpensive cost for those cards. And they are one of the lowest powered cards that can support 3 Way SLI.

I would say that your vcore is way high for the stock cooler. For long life, you probably dont want to ever see your CPU go above 82-83C at 100% load. That's after the CPU has been working for a while and gotten itself up to its maximum temperature. From my experience, you aren't going to be able to get that running the stock cooler at that high a voltage. My i7 930 clocked almost all the way to 4 GHz on its stock voltage. If I were you, I would back off the voltage. You may not actually need it to be that high to run at those speeds. Either that, or you are going to need to get a better cooler. Even for $30, you can do better then the stock intel heat sink.

This would be better then the stock cooler and it will only set you back $30.

Advice taken. It might be the memory speed, or voltage, but when I would raise the CPU above..3.6, it would crash while at max load. I'll just set it at 150*23, giving a clock of 3.450, with turbo on, stock volts.

IDK if you were in the market for a new GPU, but the GTX 560 comes out in a few days ^^

I'll take a good look at it smile.gif The GTS 250 isn't old by any stretch, but I'm just looking to get something that will last. I'm sure I don't need a brand new card just yet, but I'm considering all the possibilities.
