what i might suggest.... its kindof like cheating but hey, we have to put up with the cold in canada, might as well make it usefull... of course, this suggestion is for benchmarking only get yourself some 4 inch dryer ducting, situate your computer close to a window, stick one end of the duckting into the slightly open window, the other end up against your hsf (watch out for the fan!!) overclock the bejesus out of your system, lots of pics post and happy bragging rights lol. everyone knows that posted OC at the highest settings are never 24/7 setups. I was able to oc past 4ghz with my Q6600 and only my zalman 9500 quite stable enough for benchmarking. Wear a coat, it gets really chilly sitting for an hour beside an open window ;)
