Impressive, for air. By sub 10, do you mean... -10°C? And is that max clock, or max FSB? It looks like max FSB to me.

And where the hell do you get your hands on ES chips... They always seem better, for whatever reason.

Ok number 1 question going through everyones mind I know is. What are your load temps and what is your ambient (saw 26c in one of the screens). Also what is the stable time of these OCs? What is the config the of ram? Just 2x1gb, 2x2gb?

GeminII is super high on the list of Price/Performance, given you picked it up when it was FAR, or close (mine was $8 shipped AR). How much does a TRUE cost again.... :rolleyes:

Point taken. The TRUE 120 is fairly expensive. Although, it would seem to be smaller and do a better job than the Gemini. The TRUE is more tall than anything, which for today's motherboards with huge chipset heatsinks and whatnot, the TRUE is a bit more compatible. Very worth it to be for a few extra bucks.

I dont dare use those voltages yet!
It will be interesting if anyone can report how long the overclocks remain stable like weeks later.
I got 4.35GHz on my E8400 @ 1.5V and sooo want to know if its safe to keep that or push further.
With a 120 Extreme cooler, I had 35C delta to go on Coretemp, so not out of headroom :)
