Sorry for lack of updates but I got made redundant from work, had the 2 HDD's fail (I bloody neglected their cooling during the "open case" build) and then had the cheap and nasty lugs on the stock Intel HS pop and kill my gem 805D in the missus PC .

Well my Video Card was hitting concerning temps ranges and it is approaching summer down here so I decided to try and address this issue with initial results of 12C lower at idle and 14C lower at load. All can be seen here:
