Well, I bought my X-Fi Fatal1ty sound card, opty 165, and 2x1gb of ram early, and I have a scythe ninja heatsink and a 120mm panaflo high speed fan (103cfm) on their way in the mail, and I am going to lap the heatsink with up to 2500 grit sandpaper, and I am going to pop the IHS on my 165. This will result in idle temps in the teens not overclocked, and in the mid-high 20's OC'd. I expect high 30s-low 40s for load. And I intend to OC it even more with the extra cooling. Then when christmas actually comes around, I am going to get a razer copperhead! It's so nice not having to pay car insurance and support another person! I will upgrade the video card when the G71/R580 come out.

so, umm, err yeah
