Dang, I always get so jealous when I see people with the frostbite liquid cooling system. Maybe someday i'll be able to upgrade to lc or just wait until I get another comp in a several years...

I think its because the only reason to go with the UV light is to have the UV liquid pop and most people don't go with the UV liquid so then the UV light becomes pointless

Just a Update Everything is running amazing the only upgrade I am thinking about is maybe a watercooled 295 gtx in the future but I still play all games maxed out and playing Aion now and it runs Perfect.   
     
     I did not OC it yet. we tried but it failed I will worry about that if I actually need it.  I was thinking of droping in a extreme cpu when the price drops more.  
 
     Anyways Great build and still rocks...MY Wife calls it the Monster so you know it is great.

Great to hear.

How is Aion anyway?  I am tempted to buy it but without a free trial makes me weary of spending $50-70 on a new game that I might not like.

Aion is Great so Far.  Amazing graphics smooth gameplay and nasty RvR(PvP)  The flying Abyss PvP is tough at first.  Just updated to Windows 7 which everything runs even faster and better but I get booted from the internet every 45 mins and need to restart.

LC and OC were meant for each other. Good Luck and I hope you get the desired OC you are looking for.

q9650 is pretty easy to overclock usually.

Try these settings:

Vcore 1.5500v
FSB Auto (or try 1.4v - 1.45v if unstable)
DIMM [set to what your modules are rated for]
SPP 1.50v
MCP 1.55v

FSB 1766
Multi 9x
