Likewise I'd recommend keeping OCP on all the time and not running Kombustor or OCCT, they're both buzzsaws for GPUs.
Hey how is that q8400 treatin ya? I thought about getting one of those but I just wasn't sure. At the time it seemed like everyone was running q9550's and such. I think the only difference was like the lower cache or something...

As for kombustor and the like... I never really liked messing with the fan speed and such. Getting my GPU too hot always scared me. Plus I don't want to listen to that racket lol. I need to find out how high to OC without having to mess with the fan.
