    i7 950 is a d0 and clocks quite high. your're better off getting an i7 920 d0 as the the max clocks on both chips will be 5ghz vs 5.5ghz. either way you prob. won't reach such clocks without ln2 or phase change. qpi can be oced. just change the qpi multiplier and save yourself a nice chunk of money.

    The cooler will be ok but it's all depend on the ambient where you located. We have a member in 4Ghz club have the V8 and his load temps is around late 80ish due to his ambient of 30ish degree.

    Most multi core processors are harder to overclock than single core processor, they are also run hotter too.

    so its only the 975 that has the fastest QPI speed
    All the Extreme Edition have higher QPI clock.

    No.
    Interesting design though, because most dual rad have the heat dissipating from 300w to 350w. This is also depend on the thickness of the rad, fan speed, flow rate. It's not a TEC unit and they still use 1/4" tubing :confused:. There's a big performance drop from 1/2" to 1/4" tubes, I know they want to be compact and user friendly for consumer to install but you have to scarified the performance. At least they should use 3/8" tubing though.

    Well it seems as if I should have bought the 920, anyway, I'll keep it stock for a bit, maybe a year or so.

    With the right cooling the 950 will be fine

    You still can OC it but you might not be able to go over 4Ghz with HT enables unless you have good ambient temp such as turn the room A/C.

    Most gamers will disable the HT but in your case you need it on though.

    Just try OC it to see how far the V8 can take.
    Don't you want to know how well your chip can do, why wait?
