Same here, but on the Thermalright HR03 Plus. 4GHz is not problem in everyday use, but I too leave it at 3.6 because there is really not much benefit in running it at 4GHz right now.

Man, I can't find a QX9650 anywhere local. And the people at the stores all looked at me I like I was crazy or something.

Yeah, and in addition to the chip, I need to get a new board too, and I'm waiting for the performance review of 780i before deciding which chipset to get.
