Just installed it and I don't get it either, I was thinking for a moment maybe it was something that only the Aussies were getting but it looks like SE is the only one.

Looks nice Mitch, I like the way they display 3 Big fans on the front of the case when you can only really have 2 unless you don't intend to have an Internal DVD drive.

lol....i know

just recently my temps have been getting obscene while gaming....... my 260 actually hit 80c the other day with the fan @ 80% , my current case is very old & it has no motherboard tray, so i cannot manage the cables.....

god....my components are screaming for some air.....

If you are going to get a decent Overclock you will need to raise your voltage allot more then that, try about 1.33v and set your FSB to 400 and set your RAM to the same to get a 1-1 Ratio and set your Multiplier to 9 and see how that goes, should give 3.6Ghz and if you want get 3.8Ghz you will need to raise the FSB to 423 and Your RAM should handle that too.

FSB - 410
CPU Voltage - 1.3 (i typed in 1.3 and hit enter and it's still saying 1.27v in cpu-z)
Multiplier - 9

That's allot better, as for your voltage drop, you will always get that uless your motherboard has the option to eliminate the V droop, also if you disable CE1 in the Bios you will not get the multiplier dropping to 6 and it will stay at x9 and you will have a constant 3.69Ghz.


That's a nice Overclock Mitch, would definitely think about getting a better cooler though.

So as long as I set 1.3v in the BIOS it's safe no matter if the v drop is enabled? I'm stress testing it in prime95 right now so after a bit I'll increase the FSB to 420 from 410.

Should I up my DRAM Freq to 1066 or higher or just leave it?
