    No, I am actually running a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Pro inside a Fractal Design R3 case. I was just thinking the Asus board might allow me to use a lower VCore or just overclock better in general.

    I need about 1.48v for benching at 4.8Ghz and about 1.45v if not benching.

    Oh well, I guess I will stick with what I have and then upgrade to Steamroller when it comes out.

    Looks like I will have to be content with my 4.4Ghz on my FX 8120 Pill. I tried 4.8GHz at 1.425v but the system crashed after 5 minutes of light use like surfing the web. (Any more voltage would cause to high a power draw and heat for my system to be able to handle.)

    I also have to be more careful because the dataplex caching software is sensitive to computer crashes. (I had to run a system restore point because the crash messed it up. :D ) Oh well, it was still fun to try again.

    Good, I am not surprised you got ''stuck'' at 4.8 as I managed pretty much to hit the wall with mine at 4.7, but its stable for few months now.

    Ha yeah I'd need to have a fire extinguisher handy I think. :)

    I started a thread in General Hardware asking about liquid cooling but it seems not many people want to help.....:(

    thats why i like water, i can bench at 5.5(although i dont care for the 1.5 volts) but i got a 5.3 game stable oc, thats why i like water. Never would have been able to get near that with air :p

    Give me a budget and ill help you out with that. youll probably need $300(USD) for a good setup. less than that is budget territory but still better than air. let me know/pm me

    edit: never seen a thread of h2o, i recall you asking about it in your 8320 thread

    Hey Pill, do you know about the effects of HT and memory speeds? I saw this on another tech forum and he claims this was corroborated with ASUS tech staff. Perhaps this could be part of the reason were unable to get stable NB and HT above 2400, or in your case 2600 :) It sounds as if this guy may not have had the proper voltage settings, but never the less this could also be a factor..

    "We are talking at 1866 Mhz and 2133 Mhz which I use. I was told on the ROG web site by an Asus technical staffer that at 2133 even with loosened timings it would be near-impossible to get my HT link speed up to 2600. He was right. Even raising cpu-nb voltage and NB voltage couldn't get a stable run at 2400 or 2600. So it sits at 2200. So memory speed definitely impacts HT speed. I should lower it to 1600 and I bet the HT link speed could be raised to 2600 ."

    ^That is rubbish.....as you can see below, memory has nothing to do with HT.
    I run my memory at 2400 and my HT at 2600 fwiw.

    Might be an issue regarding the RAM divider, such that 2133Mhz the divider is unstable but at 2400 it isn't?...

    You don't set the divider yourself like in the old days, it is determined by the memory speed setting.

    Yeah I'd be surprised if an ASUS rep said that...HT transfers data between NB & CPU but doesn't affect the ram....

    Where did you see this posted?
