I did it, this is awesome my pc is now running at 2.5 on stock cooling, the only addition is the case fans. The trick was moving the PSU outside the case, the case temp dropped 10degrees!<br />

it hasnt gone above 51 in a game of BF2142 for a couple of hours and sits idle at 40-43<br />
<br />
oh and prime 95, eventually got it to 53, but i reckon thats ok if gaming only got it to max at 51, averaging 48.

</div>no i just used the stuff out of the box. I reckon if i get some of that, and a better heatsink, i might be able to get 2.6-2.7, if that via chipset doesnt die first <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

Very inventive actually, a bit unusual but that what moding and OCing is about <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> Now the PS won't be so much effected by the warm air air intaked for the case too!

yea its great plus the cables fall in through the whole at the back where the PSU was, but if i drill a smallish hole at the top, the cables can go through there, and there would be space for another 2 80mm's at the back, and then i can fit the 2 at the front, and have supreme airflow! muhahaha......sorry, got a bit mad...

I am pretty sure i can unlock the AGP on the mobo, through Uguru. You have 6 fans though, if i get this case modded a bit more. I could have if i put a bit of work in:<br />
<br />
2x80mm at front.<br />
1x80mm at the side.<br />
2x80mm at the back-top<br />
1x120mm at the back. <br />
<br />
I could possibly put another 2 80mm at the side of the case, if i find a circular drill thing. Then i would be cool as a fridge!

You dont want to unlock it.. you want to LOCK it .. so the frequency of it doesnt change.. if your upping your fsb without a pci/agp lock your upping the frequencys of the pci buss and agp buss, which can lead to a burnt out video card and corrupt hard drives. I had a via motherboard and ditched it because of those reasons.

You can definitely get a better OC once you get a better hsf and AS5. The stock stuff isn't really built for OCing. You'll notice a huge difference once you upgrade to better hsf and AS5.

ye definitley, if i can get this out of stock, a new hsf will be much better, that via chipset could be trouble though.
