    yeah the corsair is nice, although i already had most of the parts, i just got the m/b and proc. but thought i would show prices for others looking for an inexpensive o/c system.

    These benches are running at 4x133=532 fsb as this is the way i run my system all the time. i just dont feel comfortable leaving pci and agp buses overclocked when fsb is set to 150 all the time. My temps never go above 41c at full load
