My System Specs

Default Q9400 + GA-X48-DS4 + Water

With my previous cooler (Silverstone NT08) I was able to get an alright overclock of my Q9400 to 3.36GHz and it kept within reasonable temps. (high 40's load)
Now that I dove (haha) into water cooling, I felt that it would be a waste to not try to get this chip a bit higher. Here's my results, load temps were approx 45-48C, I ended the P95 run before the screen shot. Let me know what you think. I haven't been able to find a big chunk of help with the particular chip because more people opted for the Q9450 as I can tell, so I'm not really able to compare it to much else. Also, seems like I'm the only on on the planet with my mobo and this CPU .
(Picture is probably massive. Beware dialup users. I mean it)
