Care to elaborate on that?

Anyways I reckon you could reach 3.8Ghz with decent air cooling, maybe a little more. But those temps there are pretty dang good. What load temps are you getting?

My friend has a Q9550 and a Zalman 9500 cooler, and his is running at 4.0 ghz. His max temps are around 64*c.
