Hello all,

I'm sorry that I haven't been able to get on to update you guys on this - I have been extremely busy for the last two weeks. So to make it short I have OCed my CPU to 2.7ghz from stock 1.9ghz with an undervolt of 1.25V. The stock cooler is a piece of crap and that is what is holding me back from getting a lot higher. I am extremely satisfied with this computer, it has been an absolute joy to work with. One thing however is that my x1950gt has locked clocks; if anyone knows how to unlock these please let me know. Hopefully I'll be able to get you guys some more benchmarks soon. In the mean time make a list of ones you'd like me to run for you guys.

On a completely unrelated note yesterday I found out that I won a $3000 per year scholarship at a local university. Yay!

Zozio.

Nice OC for a bad cooler! Check this out:

ARCTIC COOLING ALPINE 7 http://www.newegg.com/Product/...6-009R&CMP=OTC-Froogle $5.99

For the price - the reviews look pretty descent!

Here's a forum link about the X1900GT:

Good Luck here - don't know if you can get there but worth the try.

Hey there SR-71. I actually think I am going to go for a better heat sink than that one. I was thinking of the AC Freezer 64. Also I have the x1950gt, not the x1900gt.

Oh btw, thanks a lot for the AS5: its done a lot for my temps and my current OC is in large part due to it.

I'll probably pick that up a bit later. I'll probably leave my OC till school ends as even 1.9ghz is an overkill as I don't play games atm because of school.
