No big issues really. Understanding all of the Voltages and how to apply them I suppose was the hurdle coming from the nForce Chipset, but plenty of "read" at Evga.com / X58
Temps is my "Road Block" at this point...
Had it P95 stable at 192 Bclk x 21 for 4.02 Ghz, but under full P95 Blend load a couple of Cores were up to 81 / 82C...a little toasty.
Highest Temps I get at my present OC are 71C, but generally sit around 66 / 67C.

that's VERY impressive, at 3.6 with SLI 285's I get 26k....

BUT, that's with STOCK video card speeds, no overclocking at all there, and it's also on air. Although, I've got a new cooler on the way, I'm gonna try and push things up to 3.9 or so and see how that works.

Mine is all on air.....
The Stock speeds of those 285's are well beyond my OC speeds of my 280's.....
This summer it will be SLI GTX 3xxx Series :)

EDIT: You should be pushing close to 29K with 285 SLI....OC em!

Buy the best card you can for $200. In 4 months, sell it for $100, add $200 cash, buy the best card you can for $300. In another 4 months, sell for $200, add $200, buy a $400 card. Put aside $50 a month, you'll end up with the best card on the market in under a year.

Back on topic, damn nice numbers RJ.
