My System Specs

Default

Did you pick up an aftermarket cooler?

I suspect you're going to need one if you want to get a 700 Mhz OC on that chip.

I'm looking it's either between the Arctic Freezer 64, or the Thermalright XP-90 with a Panasonic Panflo 90mm fan. Any suggestions?

Well today I sold my DFI LANParty Ultra-D, my two procs (Athlon 3200 & Opteron 144), and 1GB of OCZ Plats EL PC3200 for $300 to a co-worker to fund my leap to the dark side. (Intel). I will be creating a work log for that build when I order the parts next week.
