That's a good build for $500. I've been thinking about doing a budget build like this for some time now. Add pictures when it gets here!

WAT. You switched to water cooling, and it's only OC'ed to 3.6 GHz LiD?

With water cooling, you could EASILY hit 4 GHz. Did you try it?

@Temjin; Yeah, I've tried it, but my mobos' heatsinks are getting too hot, so I pulled it back until I can get full water cooling. I'd honestly like to get back to that kind of performance again. 4GHz was just nuts.

With my current overclock from 2.6 --> 3.42 Ghz, my temps never exceeded 70 celsius at full 100% load using super PI for over 18 hours.

Very nice Aka, but why not have four monitors? Use one for security cameras.

I think I should post my computer for contrast.

1.67 GHz dual-core processor
2GB RAM
Mobile Intel 945 Chipset family
Stock speakers
10.1" 1024x600 Display
Windows 7 Starter edition

Oh, the joys of craptastic computers.

Actually, the one on the lower left has dual inputs, so realistically, there are 4 desktop spaces available to me. Thanks for the suggestion with the security feed. :D

That's pretty awesome! You haven't broke the 4GHz barrier yet?

Don't want to really. My OC is extremely safe and not burdening on my CPU. No way I can hit 4 Ghz with air cooling alone.

What I really want to do is OC my GPU. :D
