Question 3: What kind of performance increase can I expect from OC'ing the CPU and the Video card? Is it worth OC'ing the RAM as well?
1. temp sensors are not accurate on the 590SLI mobo for a brisbane (65nm) cpu. use your bios to determine the difference between what the programs say and what the temp actually is.

2. yes.

3. i went from mid-upper 5K's to right at 9K (i have 2 7900gs') when i overclocked everything to the hilt. its always worth overclocking. lol, if you are running benchmarks. no real need to do it with your rig, depending what you are doing with it. i run mine at about 2.7 all the time, with my ram at about 950. my cards are usually running as high as i am comfortable running them (525ish/850ish).

Very much so.....use zip ties. It really helps with the tidyness of the wires.

Messy wires is more manly.

Like the bearded motorcyclist once said "if I wasn't a mess I'd be in the mafia".

Do you want to be in the mafia?
