I got my CPU back from headin2001 today.
I don't know if opnly running 2 DIMMS instead of 4 makes much difference, but a (very rough and quick) overclock to 4.69 gets a top temp of 70c in XTU benchmark. Previously at that frequency I was getting 88c! Massive improvement in temp, hopefully can get some higher speeds when i have a chance to play around.

Thanks headin, and to anyone not sure about this - do it!
Even if you don't want higher clocks you will get a much quieter PC at stock settings.
