I'm getting an OC of 3.77Ghz and this runs extremly COOL and QUIET. Idle temps are mid-upper 30c. I havent even pushed this system to the max yet but i'll tell you after having photoshop, word, internets, 2 modern games running (battlefield bc2/Heroes of newerth), ventrillo, and itunes, this comes to around 15% load and mid-upper 40c. When i'm playing battlefield for around 2 hours, its still runs about 40c and still extremly quiet. My average room temp is around 70-75f. Overall, i can't tell you how happy and satisfied i am with this machie that i've dubbed it "MegaMuzv 2.1337" haha. Having that SSD as the main drive makes load times almost instant. Windows 7 boots up in like 10 seconds and battlefield is seconds as well. While changing maps, its literally 5 seconds and boom, game time!
 
I'll update this thread maybe once or twice a year to give an ongoing review to see how well this will age. I can already tell that like a fine wine, will still kick some serious butt years from now with the exception of maybe a new video card. 
 
Now...Ladies and gentlemen.. For the thousands in attendance and the millions at home watching/reading this..Lllllllllllets get ready to ruumblllllllllllle!!! Pics for all! I
