    Interesting Harmonic, heres my current readouts; motherboard 24 deg, room temp 22. CPU idle at 30 deg under prime i'll hit 70 degrees on a 212+ push pull current OC is 4.4 at 1.22 volts. I tried manual but I really got not much more (4.6) and had to pour on the voltage to get there. This current OC is the auto overclock so the results are pretty good considering what I found with manual for this chip. That being said I didn't get agressive with the VRM stuff. edit: Case is a HAF X

    No probs auditri happy to help. You are right with the same case she won't know ...didn't think of that :P I myself used to only buy Gigabytes a few years ago they used to offer more and charge less for it, now this is not so. Asrock are todays Gigabyte of yesterday. I currently have a P8P67 EVO but if I was building today I'd certainly go the ASrock, not that there is anything remotely wrong with this board.

    personally I think there is a fair bit of wasted $ in that system the UD7 is EOL so it will be harder to find. Also top end products are rarely carried in stock. I think you'll struggle to find any board these days with a native parallel port or even a header best solution for that I think would be a USB to parallel port converter. Another thing to consider is clearance for ram with that heatsink, I would be pretty certain the fan included in the ripjaws kit you mentioned would not fit.

  11. This may be a statement of the bleeding obvious, but is the knob on the front panel in the on position? I have the exact same drive and yes I have done this myself.
