Yea? Should I get something cheaper because at 2.7GHz my peak load temp is 50*C.

Peak load at 50*C is fine, as long as you dont go pushing 60*C

Really 50*C is fine? I though that was a bit high. I also only have 1 case fan blowing out the side. I have 2 80mm ports in the back and one 120mm in the front. I think that I should also invest in some new case fans. And peak load on stock is like 32 or something like that.

yes, 50*C is absolutely fine for A64s. While AXPs can take up to 2V and a higher temp. But you are okay.

I think I'm going to try and get it higher that 2.7GHz. I got it bios stable at 3.015GHz but my ram is seriously bottlenecking me. I have 512MB right now of OCZ value ram, and I have a major ram divider it's set at 100MHz so it's only running @ 200MHz right now. I'm gonna bump up the fsb once I get my new ram. I have the voltage set @ 1.642V. Should I bother raising the FSB a bit or is the voltage to high?

That voltage is too high. 1.6V max for A64s in air. 1.65V max on water.

How much of the lifetime do you think I'm taking away by putting all that voltage through?
