Too true. Seeing this mod actually gave me the motivation I needed to finish up the paint job on my old Tempest (had been 2 months without working on it) and to order all the parts for my new rig!

PC temps before and after being Overclocked to a stable 3.6 GHz. This is best OC I'm finding other people achieve out of Zotac's H55 as well. No surprise, it's a HTPC board and not intended for Overclocking.

Motherboard = ZOTAC H55 ITX 1156
CPU = Intel Core i7-870 Lynnfield 2.93GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core
GPU = ZOTAC 470 GTX
SSD: Mushkin Callisto 64GB
PSU: Silverstone 600W

COOLING SPECS:
CPU = Custom Copper water block
GPU Cooling = EK-FC470 GTX water block

2.93 GHz Core i7 870 Lynnfield CPU at stock and Idle



Overclocked to 3.6 and running Prime95 (core i7 860/870 has a 100c max)

That's pretty awesome! The DVD drive cover detracts from it a little though IMO.

grats!!!! do you guys have something in the works yet? I think you guys should do a UFO custom case with the bubble cockpit on top and have that be the reservoir and have it so you can see through the res and see the components! and then send it to me of course.

did you guys ever end up taking down window dell?
