Here is mine, 680i and q6600
I cannot get my clocks past 2.8 ghz no matter what voltage I do, I think my board sucks or i am doing something wrong :/
Was on a cold night in NYC, I still need to put some fans on it to go even lower
im running a similiar set up (see sig)
try raising your cpu core voltage, or upping your northbridge voltage. i was running 1.7v into my northbridge that night!
highest FSB i could get...
hoping to push it even farther this winter once the temps drop again

Build your PC in a vaccumed freezer. Sounds chilly brrrrrrrrrrr
You guys are really lucky....I'm in Singapore and its like 32-34 degress C here....even on water, its still hot as hell...
We (at least I'm) are not lucky. Be happy with your temps, I have to deal with -50*C (and lower!) right now with the wind chill.
Its 2F/-17c outside here, and inside my chillbox it 4-6F/-16c q9550 under load = 4-6c @ 3.74 @ 1.23v
did some midnight ocing with cool night air and some watercooling, lol i had to stop cos apparently some parts of my rads internal water canals froze and i had barely no water flow and had to stop the session

I picked up 2 1977 bonneville heater cores from a local auto parts store for 15$ each. I still have to run a 100% antifreeze mix but the heater cores have very little restriction and with 2f internal case temps the heater cores do fine. Had emm for over a year now and they have yet to freeze up.
I need to get something set up and hope it stays cold for a couple days until I have a break from work

Out side temp and internal case temp = -17c
Here's a quick shot at load. I didn't load it for long. If I let it run for a while it will go up a few deg.
And yes this chip has 2 very stuck sensors. If I unplug the pump, - once it hits 25c or so all the sensors work again lol. The correct sensors/temps are @ 3c in this ss. The chip clocks well enough so meh. I just picked the chip up on newegg for $249, gonna run it till the i9 comes out.
Been running like this for many years with various setups and other than a few rad issues I've had no problems. Though I do have to keep the pump and a res outside the chilbox. The pump freezes up otherwise.
I also gave up on using a waterblock on the gpu, I go though a ton of graphic cards and buying new blocks got expensive. I usually just swap out the thermal paste on the gpu n vram and use a high cfm custom fan and semi mod the stock cooler. Gtx280 loads in crysis @ 36c-42c temp depending.
I will perhaps get pictures later.
My friend and i did some overclokicking with some cold swedish winter air. It was around midnight and there was a snowstor outside. I think the outside temp was about -15 or so. ALOT of snow though.
What we did was mount a Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme on or testrig and then use tejp to mount 2 Schytche Kaze 3000 rpm (144CFM) on it. We placed the entire system need the back door witch has a cat door. We rigged the door open and the builded a "tunnel" of sort between the fan intake and the cat door. The fans sucked ALOT of cold air and snow trough the fans and into the room. We had a very wet floor after just 10min of running. Anyway, we had mounted a standard thermometer on the base of our Ultra 120. I think the temp was 5 degrees, while the rest of the room was about 19 degrees.
To bad our Celeron 430 did not clock as good as we had hoped :P. The CPU temp at 1.6V was about 20 degrees.

hello i am new to phase cooling.......i have water cooled many many pc's over my time and are no newbie with overclocking
i want to know how to cool a i7 3960x with phase cooling or tec cooling
i live in australia so usually fairly hot here my i7 3960x @ currently 4.9ghz is maxing out on temps and i want to push it further......i currently have it watercooled with a 320 rad and a 140 rad......temps hitting high 80's under load.....could i use say a coolmaseter phase change from frozen cpu to use this computer for about 5 hours a day......and not have to worry about condensadion (can u set temps dont want like -20 for massive benches just want to runt he cu 5.2ish all the time)......any advice would be helpfulll.....have thought about water coolers or chillers....???? have used chillers before on my aquarium.....but other than that not much experiance....help plz....also all phase units iv seen are 110 or 120v i need a 240v compliant machine here....
You could get a Hailea water chiller like the A500, it works real good.
