The case is finished. Nate has started the system installation. A 1200W PCP&C psu will powering this baby, so a lot of "cable-gami" and other various cable management / sleeving on the work order.

Ok, after a few hours of installing software and testing, here are some of the results I have acheived.

On stock speeds:
CPU - 3.33 Ghz
3DMark Vantage - Performance Score
Image

Not a bad score at all.

I was able to tweak the CPU up to 4.0 Ghz, very easily. I upped the multiplier to 30x, left the FSB at 133. After a few tests and short term stress tests, everything appears stable. More testing to do to ensure it, but initial results are good. At this speed, the idle temps are around 35C and under a full stress load (Prime95) the highest it has gone is 67C. These temps are definitely in normal operating ranges, even for stock speeds.

Image

With the OC applied, the 3DMark Vantage score does increase a little.
Image

So far so good. The next step is going to be maximizing the ram speeds and testing that. Once everything is set in place, I will be running some long term (8+ hours) of stress testing to ensure we are 100% stable.

Ok, I have to admit a little blunder. The scores I posted before weren't accurate. Somehow in the nVidia control panel, Vsync was defaulted to Force On, so it negatively affected the GPU portion of the 3DMark Vantage score.

So, here is the real score with the CPU at 4.0 Ghz
Image

Much better and up where I thought it would be (high 20k's).

I am going to be working a little more to see if I can get a little more out of the CPU, but we are stable here at 4.0 Ghz. Anything extra is an added bonus.
