Very stable so far and temps are fine also, at least for the QX6700 Idle is around 53C (58-62C with Core Temp). Load under 65C (70-75C with Core Temp). That's with the Zalman 9700 at 2300 RPM.

I'm very happy with the system now, except some strange noise from the vreg. I already contacted EVGA to get a replacement.
slaWter, do you see better performance with 9x333 = 3GHz rather than 12x266 =3.2GHz? (Just wondering/curious about your choice to up the FSB to 333 rather than bump the multiplier more)
