  1. Its been awhile since I upgraded anything in my system. Here they are!

    Swapped the Athlon 7750 BE for a Phenom II 940 BE
    Swapped Antec Basiq 500 watt PSU for Antec Earthwatts 650
    Swapped Stock CPU Heat Sink Fan for Corsair H50 Water Cooler
    Swapped Server 2008 64bit for Vista Ultimate 64bit, soon to be 7.

    All inside an Antec 900

    I have the 940 clocked @ 3.3 but I start having issues at 3.6

    Temps OC are 29c Idle 33c Load CPU
    System Temp 30c Idle 35c Load
    HD 4850 60c Idle 75c Load

    Thinking about picking up another 4850 for crossfire, they seem to scale well.

    Any input will be great!

    The system looks good. For OCing the 940 BE you could look at Dolk's Guide on the internet.

    Thats a great guide, Thanks!

    I was able to hit 3.9 no problem. Gonna stick to 3.5, just to be safe.
