Wowza! Impressive. What board do you have? Your rig specs link is broken.

For some reason i can't update it says there is an error so have to create a new one. Annoying.

I wish it wasn't a 680i. I've been through 3 of those in a span of 2 months and refuse to go back.

Nice overclock, though. What's your FSB at that overclock?

Xion X2, have you thought about this? I have used this on my case and I love it.

I kept the front panel shut unless I was benchmarking. Temps on the CPU would drop ~5C w/ the extra airflow. At 1.5v on my X2 4400+ @ 2.7ghz I was loading at 56-58C in dual-prime.

The downside was the noise. When I opened the front panel it sounded like a quiet vacuum cleaner.
having that fan with no filter, doesn't cause dirt/dust issues inside the case?

Only 378MHz FSB i can't get it to boot too much higher for some reason.

mullet/nekrosoft,

I no longer have that setup. My current system is on water. That fan solution would've been nice, mullet. If I'd seen that while I still had the case then I might've tried it.

Not having a filter on the fan did cause a little dust, but most of it just shot out through the back exhaust fan. I had a direct wind-tunnel cutting through the top half of the case; you could feel the air pressure out the back exhaust fan increase immensely once you opened the front panel so the front intake fan could breathe. It also had kind of a low growl to it, which was kinda cool.

Loud, though. Fo' sho.

How did you get an E4300 to 3.4gHz, then? Aren't they at 1.8gHz from the factory?

Have a 9x multi, don't they? I need a 400FSB with a 9x multi on my chip for a 1200mhz overclock, and you have a 1600mhz overclock.

?

Yeah it's 9x 378MHz = 3800MHz, factory FSB of the Core2 E4300 is 200MHz rather then your 266MHz of the core2 E6600. Also it is cooler my a ThermalRight Ultra 120 with a 120mm @ 1300rpms

Some very strange arithmetic's here
"Yeah it's 9x 378MHz = 3800MHz"
Maybe the extreme overclock did screw up your calculator
Just kidding, take it easy.
