If I click on it once and then maximize, the second click after doesn't work.

If I click twice on it, and then maximize..it works!

Yah! this is very nice temp! and this is what I am aiming to...FSB=400 MHz x 9 , if it is possible x10!
...but I have to fix the temp problem before!

Thank you!

FSB 400MHz is going to be a challenge on a quad even with the Bad Axe 2. My Q6600 does 3.6 (9x400) 24 hr quad prime stable on the quad-fixed eVGA board with good water (bottom mounted, but not the same as Patriote. I gotta get around to posting pics of my setup) cooling, but I get a weird warm boot issue, and I have to go back down to 3.2GHz in order for my PC to reboot properly. On the positive side though, I'm running my DDR2 at 475MHz 4-4-4-12 at those settings, so I've got lots of memory bandwidth

Damn, that makes me want to get a Q6600 now that they are relatively affordable!

My System Specs

The Natilus is a good kit. Keep in mind tho, WC kits and custom WC setups are like comparing apples and oranges.

I agree, a custom WC setup is the way to go if you want the best that water cooling has to offer. High water flow is perhaps the best thing going for custom WC setups, as the pumps are bigger, the inner diameter of the tubes are bigger, and the water blocks are _usually_ less restrictive. Plus there is an assortment of oversized radiators, giving you the option to go passive if you want (no fans required on the radiators).

The only thing knocking water cooling _kits_ like the natilus is the lower flow, however the water blocks and pumps are very competent and get the job done very well. If you are a casual overclocker, a water cooling _kit_ like the natilus is more than you need. The delphi pump can handle extra water blocks for your north bridge, GPU and anything else you want to throw at it.

I ran a Natilus for a year on a 3700+ (OC'd 20%) and peeked at 45 degrees Celsius under full load (that includes cooling the CPU and the GPU with a Zalman video card water block.
