Well, Frankie is finally in his case though I still have some work to do. I was busy OC'ing this CPU as running both my machines and the A/C was too much for my breaker!
Going to have to get a new power line in here.
So, I've got it up to 3.78GHz after a long fight which turned out that my Dominators were being recognized as 1067's as opposed to the advertised 1600's marked on the box. This was due to the fact that the Dominators need 1.65V instead of the 1.5V it was getting. Thanks for making it clear Corsair. 10hrs. wasted because of that yesterday!
The Corsair Hydro H50 works like a dream. 50C as opposed to 70C and at only 3.3GHz for the 70C reading. If I remove the %100 load and the CPU is at idle, the CPU temps drop like a rock from 50 to 28 like in 4 seconds! A very nice solution for the weekend OC'r like me, no fuss no muss and easy to install with great results at a modest cost. Mind you it doesn't look as impressive as some of those huge air coolers but I like it's conservative look and use of space.
All that's left to do now is to OC it to the magical folding number of 4GHz+ and clean up the wiring before I take some pics and button it up!
BTW, I love having the on board BIOS reset button, the thing was a life saver!!!!!
