Default Much Better part2

well, here is i7 story part 2. Continue story.

Today I got a new PSU (Silverstone DA850), couldn't get anything with higher W, because my amazing crappy Coolermaster Stacker 830 case, 7inch max lenght for the PSU.

Also got new DDR3 1600 OCZ 6GB memory Kit.

no more squeals, so far i got 3.6ghz OC stable, and working on getting 4.0 stable.

so far 4.0ghz (192x20+turbo) has been somewhat stable. It is prime and Linx stable, but after about 30-60minutes in certains game computer freezes. Still need to tweak it about.

I will post my BIOS template soon, maybe someone can give some tips what to adjust to get 4.0ghz stable.

You must have the original stacker. I could easily throw a 10" power supply in the evo.
