Ok homie

I'm waiting.

Sup.

I have a Cosmos S on the way to replace my Stacker with, so I decided to wait until that gets here to mount the V10 (mobo has to come out of the case, so may as well do both at once.)

Won't be long now.

Interested in your results as well. All the reviews I read on those said they were only marginally better than the stock coolers. I hope your results are better.

Marginally better than the stock cooler? Uhhhh, ok.

There's not much worse than the stock cooler.

All reviews I read on it had high praise for it.. some coming from guys who've had H20 setups in the past.

Anyway, I'll know in about a week. I decided to hold off on the install until my new case gets here.

The V10 looks fine here-

Personally, I like the Prolimatech Megahalems or a TRUE-120 with two fans in push pull. My old Ultra Extreme is set up like that.

Just surfing the web and listening to music (pretty much idle), my cpu is in the 38c-40c range. It is low 30s outside today. This is alright?
I am asking because I would like to know what should i shoot for with my overclocks. I always figured about 3.6-3.8, but that all depends on the temps. I would like my cpu to last at the very least 1.5 years.

Well start overclocking it and see if it can handle it then report the temps you are getting Bob. Maybe this will help you http://forums.anandtech.com/messagev...readid=2315264

That's at stock speed correct? Wow I guess I shouldn't worry about mine hitting 56C after a few hours of Prime 95 then
