hey, I am planning to OC a intel I7, too.
Does it make many problems, or is it more or less straight forward, at least to such limits?

Why no water on the cpu? I like it a lot short of the funky front panel controller that just ruins it for me. Get a little black paint or something on that awful blue color.

The CPU isnt the problem cause the i7 runs so **** nice... the GPU's on the other hand are a pain to keep cool.

Honestly i really dont care about this one cause its just going to be gaming work horse.

The other one in the Speedo case is my smooth operator... shes going through a makover right now...

waiting on a new mobo, video cards, ram, and PSU and CPU cooler

pics will be up soon on the Thermaltake beauty queen
