I have all the speedstep and turbo features enabled, and using offset mode with loadline enabled. I'm only running a 48x multi, so it looks like I can get away with not needing Internal PLL override.
Ah, yes it seems that even at 5ghz running CPU Internal PLL override disabled works no problem, but it doesn't affect benchmarks for me =S. I guess every chip is different, makes it kinda fun =P

yeah, I'm weighing my options.

1. leave well enough alone (not likely)
2. buy the kaze fan controller and 3 more kaze fans
3. buy noctua fans and use the included resistors to reduce fan speeds, and those nice little plug mounts instead of screws aren't bad either

now that you have a kaze and noise is no longer an issue, why not get a megahalems and strp two kaze's to it. definitely be able to get a nice oc.

hmmm u guys think i'l have any trouble if i added another 2x2gb ?? so i'll be using all 4 slots

will it affect my current OC at all?

It's possible, but not by much. It will stress the internal memory controller more might just require a voltage bump for vcore or maybe for VCCIO (qpi). Do you really need that much memory tho? I can't even come close to maxing 4gb then again I don't leave stuff open.

Btw Noctua fans are inaudible even at max speed but they really don't push alot of air. Best bet is a fan controller and 2x San Ace 120mm fans or 2 ultra kaze.

U can cross wire 2 PWM fans to draw power from a 4-pin molex connector but have them controlled by the motherboard PWM line although you need to solder some wires. Pretty easy and cheapest alternative, it's what I'm running right now. I hate my slip stream 1900rpm fans tho, yes they push alot of air, but not enough to justify the noise. I'm drooling over San Ace 120x38mm fans but I can't buy stuff online unfortunately.

Thanks, me too.

Yeah, I have a preference for top down coolers. I blame the V10 on my i7 920. That damned thing is huge and gets in the way. I like top down coolers because they don't get in the way or obstruct my view of the dimm slots but still send some airflow their way.

ever since i got my TT bigTyphoon i promised never to get another top sown. That thing made a mess in my system. I am in a very dusty house and have 3 air filters in my room and that pc still cant go 2 months without a blast of compressed air. on the other hand i have a similar setup in the next room with no air filters and that system has a tuniq tower. its been going strong for over a year with no blast.

I have a question, do you guys clean your pc's often? I dismantle clean and rebuild every 6 months or so.
