I used the lv up, but it would not go to Crazy mode, so went back to 3.0 GHz and worked up from there to a stable point. Never done much OC on MB, so slowly reading/learning and trying different things. Tried 3.5GHz, but to unstable and 3.6 GHz would not boot.

No COD4 yet, D/L Crysis demo atm to check it out, see how it runs b4 I buy it.

Crysis runs fine. Had to back down the GPU a bit as it ran a bit warm, but other than that it is fine. Not to bad of a game, but I don't like the idea of having to stick to a single mission. I prefer something like STALKER where you can go different places and do multiple missions. I do agree tho the graphics are some of the best I have seen in Crysis. Have yet to find a sniper rifle which being an ex-Marine is one of my favorite weapons.
