First OC, Any pointers?

8 Aug 2009
My current setup is;
955 @ 3744MHz (208MHz x 18)
Asus Crosshair III Formula
4GB Corsair Dominator 1600C9D @ 554MHz (7-7-7-20)
TRUE 120

Temps are;
29°C Ambient
33°C Idle
49°C Load (1hour Prime95)

I was really shocked to see the difference after i re-installed the TRUE with some AS-5. Before i was using The Chill Factor, and under full load i was hitting 59°C sometimes..Anyway could have just been a bad install by me.

What i'm still unsure about is memory OC, i tried putting my mem at 1600 MHz in bios but it put some retarded timings by default. (11-11-11-30) :confused:
What timings should i be aiming for at 1600?

I'm also in the middle of buying everything for a WC setup, So far i have
Swiftec GTZ
XSPC RX360 Radiator

Just debating on which pump i should get, any favourites? I'm inclined to go for XSPC DDC 18w so i dont need to worry about an extra reservoir.

P.s no poking fun at my 7950 :p saving pennies for my 5870
