My q6700 is able to hit 3.60 Ghz with 1.42V in BIOS effective 1.39 due voltage drop.

It's just amazing. My temperature reached 62C on Prime and it's absolute stretch. I think Tuniq Tower 120 can't do any better. Too bad i don't have some bad ass watercooling :thumbdwn: This baby can hit 4Ghz with no problem.

Well, not much better you can do with air cooling

Might as well go phase change like jakup :)

I guess that your problem is the heat of the VGAs. Try to create a proper airflow inside your case to fight this.

The armor is an excellent case for cooling. Here i run 3x 120mm fans in the front, 1x 120mm fan in the back, the 2x 90mm fans in the hdds/top, the Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme with 1x 120mm fan, 1x40mm fan on the chipset, and i plan to install a 2nd 120mm fan in the cpu, another 40mm fan in the mosfets, and prolly a custom pci bracket with a couple of 120mm fans for the next vga.

Good luck fighting the heat :)

If only they put the pci-e slots on the other side of the motherboard :D

I will try. I have 1x120mm on front, and one 120mm on back, and that's it. I will try to add fans on bottom to suck out heat from video cards and one on top.
