Well I wish you luck, and hope those temps come down a bit. Come and let us know how things work out!

Also, when you're making new post updates, try to use the "edit" button on your previous post. Try not to double post like you did just there, it's a sure way to get unwanted attention from mods.

Okay, thanks alot! I think if I don't overclock I'll have no problems with overheating. My case has nice airflow. But I'll be cautious. I'll post some screenshots tomorrow.
