    Mine is a C1, one of the early ones. Is that auto Vc for 3.9 mhz? If so you should be able to lower that I would think.

    Surely you are not at 56' at 3.9 when at idle????

    Na, this Swiftech H-20-320 Edge kit keeps the chip cools as any DIY setup. I have the fans hooked up to an Akasa Fan Controllers so I can lower them at idle when surfing. At full blast they are loud but the temps are very low.

    so what was your excuse of returning the chip, since the chip is working fine except it requires higher Vcore?

    Nothing more than the resale value was gutted. As Vc goes it is a pretty decent chip. Runs 24/7 @ 4.8 with 1.38 Vc. No complaints there.

    Very nice! good job so far. Like the color scheme you chose for this build. Very similar to my FX build, but only nicer.

    Did you install red LED in the Raystorm block?
