My System Specs

Default

When I played musical cases with my rigs ( Server -> Lancool PC-K62, Main -> Antec Mini P180), I changed the Megahalems in my computer for a Cooler Master GeminII.
With a 140mm fan going at full speed, I was able to squeeze another 200MHz out of the motherboard.

So I'm now running a x40 multi (4.0 GHz) for anything other than Linpack (in which case the VRMs try to save themselves from smoking and downclock the CPU to x37). At least I'm able to use the capability of my i5 2500K now, as the non-K would have topped off at x38.
