As redhat put it your limitation is your cooling at this point, nothing else.

If you got a custom water loop you could probably get 300-400MHz more out of it stable.

If you went phase change you could probably hit around 4.8 or 5GHz.

If you went LN2 you could hit 6+.

well thats the thing, my cpu temps only get up to around 46 when torture testing with prime95, which as I see it, my core temp is around 10 degrees less than that (although it might be wise to just follow the cpu temp to be on the safe side since I cant see the real core temps anymore) but with my current setup what ratio would you recommend for stable OC over 4ghz? As far as cpu multi/FSB or NB multi? And if im OC the NB will my Gskill Ripjaw cl9 ram hold up? and one more thing...last thing I promise Do you think I can lower the timings on that RAM without problems?
