Thanks for the quick reply. I felt that 3.3 was a bit low as well but I have been using that 24/7 for a little less than a year now and any more voltage increases and the temps would be a little too high for me. The x38s and x48s are looking great right now, and now that you mention it I could try OCing my chip on one of those and have some fun there. For some reason getting just a new board didn't even cross my mind. But how far do you really think I can push this chip on air? This is becoming an even harder decision. It's not that I am setting a budget for this upgrade but I don't want to spend a lot of money because in reality the setup I have now is fine for me if I can manage to wait until Nehalem.
