What is this "Overclocking" you speak of? Isn't that alchemy or work of the devil? LOL I was CPU limited in Far Cry 2 before the upgrade. I got a 10 FPS bump even while temporarily running old DDR2 667. I'm looking forward to seeing what this 1066 gives me. I know it's not in the right spirit to not overclock but I'm pretty freaking happy with the improvement. I found a tiny plug that let me disconnect the fan's speed controller so we'll see if it works as a "normal" fan now. The verdict isn't in yet on the white fan but I do know that I would rather paint a white fan than a black fan. Sponsorship sounds a lot more formal than it really is. I've known these people for a long time and consider them good friends. I remember when Silverstone was an unknown company set up near me at CES 2004 peddling some mini-ITX cases. TRIVIA: The recently resurrected Cooler Master ATCS line actually goes back to 1999. The ATCS team disappeared in 2003 because they left and formed their own company...Silverstone.
