No, i have not done a head-to-head test of the silent tower vs the af7.

To me a few degrees either way doesn't matter if the convenience is more important. Assuming of course you aren't trying to sqeeze the last few mhz out of your oc.

On my rigs (mostly folding), i like to leave a margin of error anyway so a change of ambients or dust buildup doesn't start creating errors, although i do adjust the clocks/volts on a few between summer and winter.

im not trying to push that puppy to his max,

right now im @ 2.8Ghz with only 1.3V which is 0.05V lower then the stock vcore ...

i can easely hit 3 ghz wih that chip ... so right now im more trying to have good temp with a minimum of noise ... cuz the silent tower with dual fan setup (pull-push) make alot of noise ... and its damn huge, (had to move my video card in my lower pci-e slot.
