Default Who's up to this challenge? read.

Ok. I have done loads of research and i want to seewhat you guys thought. Try an build me a 1000$ OC computer. I am strictly going to be OC the cpu and ram. I want preformance, not gaming. I would rather have processing power. Do not pick out cooling as i am looking to spend roughly 900-1000 on cooling. Yes, can you say sub-zero? I don't want more then a 660GT. Use nvidia,m not ATI. I will give 1USD to whoever builds a good OC computer.

Time to do more cooling research.
