I did at 2.8, I think it was. One test stopped after 9 minutes, the second test stopped after 1 hour. I've never really gave much attention to Prime tests in the past.

One thing, I have yet to up the voltage on the RAM. That is the part that scares me the most. Should I bump it to 2.7v at 233mhz? Also, when I did the 2.9GHz, I put my HT to 600mhz. That may've been too low. From what I've read, it seems it needs to be set at 800 or 1GHz. I can't adjust the HT multiplier in my BIOS, so...I don't know. Finding just the right settings is, of course, the fun part, but it's all frustrating at times, too.

I'll tell you one thing, this Tuniq Tower 120 is amazing!
