    Hi guys,
    Well I've made my first upgrade, picked up a new Gigabyte 3D-Aurora Case
    Along with a Thermaltake Blue Orb ll

    Anyway, wanted to ask, is the Orb suitable for good Overclocking, I'm not talking about Die-Hard but increasing the clocks from 2.2 to about 2.6.
    Secondly, my case fans are currently running at 900RPM, they can do 1700, I need to know how to increase the RPM and also a good software to monitor Temperatures and RPM would be appriciated, my Mobo is Gigabyte GA-K8N Ultra 9.

    Thanks for the help.

    try fanspeed or whatever gigabyte uses to monitor there boards.

    nice clock, 2.6-2.8 is usually the max for the X2.

    The blue orb 2 should be fine, that's an enormous HSF, just so long as it fits in your motherboard without touching the ram/caps!

    The Blue Orb sits well on my motherboard, I'll post some pics soon, the case rocks too.

    only one question, I've installed SpeedFan, and it appears to be monitorning 3 types of temperatures, 1 and 2 are CPU core temps I assume, but what the hell is Temp 3 and why is it 69C !?

    See Attached Screenshot

    Is it fluxuating or constantly staying at 69? Nothing in your case should be 69c when idle.

    Its constantly staying at 69C, I think its something thats not hooked up or something, same thing I got with Sisoft Sandra, it showed me temperature of 69C for my second CPU, perhaps becuase it does not support dual-core?
    And the same for SpeedFan?
