I'll be overclocking my 9600GT now and try to get the most out of my system as I can.

what are the temps like where it's sitting now? Is there a side vent that is getting blocked from being right next to the desk upright? Looks good, but I know my wife's computer went up a couple degrees in temps when I put it in a desk like that, but a little more open. Just something to watch for.

Sorry. Never replied to your question.

My temps don't go over 55C under OCCT load, and stays under 50C when running 96% [email protected] load. The side vent isn't really blocked since there's about an inch or two of space away from the edge of the table, plus I have a front intake which is doing pretty good in terms of air flow.

I had what I believe to be a good overclock on my 9600GT, but I accidentally deleted the overclocked settings so now I have to find my stable GPU overclock. I believe the max I got to was something close 722/1855/950. Seems to be low compared to what everyone else is getting.

I currently have it running at 510/1865/675 for GPU folding.

yeah, I have started keeping a text file on the desktop, called current config. Shows my stable CPU and GPU overclocks, as well as current settings i'm testing. That way, if something happens and the new settings aren't stable, I don't have to try to remember what the settings for all the different computers are... they are listed right on the desktop.

Looks pretty good geo! I love an aircooled rig.

How many systems would you say you've built before?

1. This is my first build.

I've taken apart some of the other stuff before, such as PSU, CPU cooler, graphic card, fan. Basically everything but the motherboard. Building a computer is easy, but it takes forever.

For your first rig it looks pretty damned good if you ask me! :supz:
