    Hi Everyone,

    So i decided to upgrade my old rig with a new case, PSU and installed water cooling for my AM3+ Platform coming from a generic basic setup using everything stock including CPU HSF.
    Well, it turned out to be a great overclock and everything went well considering my current setup with only a water AIO and no case fans. Case cover was left open.

    I went with a Thermaltake Water 3.0 S 240mm AIO and i found this to work extremely good.
    I am quite happy how this basic board could handle the 4.8ghz overclock. Please see the link bellow for all the screen shots.

    Let me know what you guys think :) Just felt like i wanted to get this out there and see if anyone else with a similar setup had good fortune.
    I ran a baseline test with everything stock including case and no water cooling to start it off. Not sure i want to push any further especially with this board.

    Feel free to ask questions. Thanks.

    that's pretty impressive on that board just keep an eye on the vrm temps as they can get very toasty
