I joined up with HWBOT and realized that my system, although decent for an air-rig, completely sucks in comparison.
Now I want to pump this bad boy up to 3.6-3.8 if possible, and was wondering what I should watch out for, having an air cooling system. Is there any way this is possible without WC or anything higher, and barring any unforeseen circumstances (man that brings back good half-life memories), have this rig not die out within a week?
(I am guessing that voltage doesn't matter whatever kind of cooling you have, the more of it going to the CPU, the shorter the lifespan)
The biggest thing is to watch your temps. The nice thing with the E2180 is your 10x multi.
