I have a nice set of OCCT graphs from a mixed 2 hour stress test if you're interested. As for 3.2ghz with 8X400 and the ram at 800 with 2dx400. I switched the ram from 6,6,6,18 to 5,4,4,15 previously and in doing so had to bump up the voltage to 1.82 (from 1.8). The ram specs out to 2.1V so I'll find the stable speed for the new timing in there somewhere.

I'll be playing with switching voltage settings from auto to default and maybe lower today so I can throw up new occt 2 hour stress test for that setup as well.

As for PSU's that's an area I haven't much researched, to ugly looking :O, so I'm open to what sort of thing to look for. I like the idea of a modular PSU but don't mind just playing games with too many cables.

Edit: Any comments on switching out the palit gpu hs with Thermalright HR-03 GT or the much cheaper Arctic Cooling Accelero S1 (or the twin turbo fanned version). I like the idea of passively cooling, or cooling with out a dedicated fan, the 4850.
