My clock was at 3.4 Medium was in the upper 40's but keep in mind this was without a case side panle so no warm case air actually passed threw the heat exchanger!
If it can keep a Q6600 @ 3.6GHz in the 30s while "idle", it should keep my Opty within the 30s underload at 3GHz. I see no reason why it couldn't. That is my point.
