Sweet thank you for the setting the other day just a minor tweaking i got it to 4.0 with no issues at all with prime and running all teh test i could.  The issue i have now is on a cold reboot he resets the settings. 
 
So any Idea how to fix the cold boot issue i get it even when I run at 3.2 I also ran at 3.6 for a solid week with no cold boot isuues. as for temps I ran the burn my cpu test on prime for almost 4 hours and never broke 55c avearge was around 51c so great job on my LC system DS!!!!!!!! 
 
Now I am playing STO and my video card is running at around 69c...everyother game never breaks 54.  I will take this to the other forums and new pics coming I just added two Green led fans one on the top and bottom of the case which has lowered my over all temps 7c upto 15c on the mobo. 
 
I just want to get one more video card SLI with LC on them and get my machine to 4.0 stable for Crysis 2!!!!!

Thank you for the settings.  I can get it to OC past every test never heat up past 55c but cold boot will always cause a problem.  More pics coming just got a few new lens for my camera and going to-do a few hour-2 hour exposers with two new green led lights added in.

Okay since my last post not one issue with my system.  solid OC at 3.99999 for over 4 months.  I know have adobe cs5 and 100+ games from steam and this machine is amazing still with only one video card.  I might upgrade my card in about another year but will honestly stay with a single.  Unless I goto a monitor size of 25+.  Thought I might upgrade to 8 gigs.  Creative Suite does let you use a lot if you wish and helps a lot.  I did have to add a 2T 7200 WD HD though.  my 300 gig is now full with games only about 15 gigs left on it.  I will take another pic I also customized it a bit with a Cooler master 3.5 Bay holder.  Looks sweet.   Thanks again digital Storm for a Amazing system.  Almost at the Two year mark.

On a Side note, My wife calls this Rig  "The Monster" since it glows so much and is huge.  After she used Creative Suite on my "Monster" vs her HP.  She said "when can we by me a Little Monster from them".  She is now convinced and soon we will be looking into  a desktop for her.  No one can resist "The Monster"

I only put in a 470 gtx. and the upgrade was amazing, going to add 4 more gigs of ram due mroe to the use of Adobe creative suite.  Still OCed at 3.996. might goto 4.2 later this week.  Been over at year at last OC with 0 crashes.  Just took a bit to fine tune the settings.  I will be doing a SLI at some point too.  Just to test it out for fun and hook it up to my LED TV.

Well this computer is still rocking but I might actually look to upgrade and or get a new machine.  I really want to look into LC for video and SLI.  So begins the search.  Also the laptop we purchased recently is amazing still, not one issue at all.
