Assuming I'm careful, there's little risk and a decent benefit from overclocking. Do you think I have enough cooling though?

Sorry for the delay, I missed page 4.

Yes, I think you have enough cooling. You can set alarms for both the CPU and GPU. Mine are, 60C CPU and 80C GPU.

Benchmarking, stress testing.

Thanks for the links!

I guess now it's time to sit back and wait until assembling-day.

I did not mention surge protection.

I don't think you need an UPS but do recommend a decent surge protection unit. I bought one that came with a PC and components replacement guarantee, $50,00

I would go for the Eaton.

It is quite difficult to research them on line as the specs are hard to find.

I went into, Tandy, Dick Smiths and
local PC shop.

The Higher the joules the better. the lower the response time, the better.

I'd really like http://www.samsclub....i_sku=sku245495 but I can't find it in any Australian stores, I've tried different variations of the name and with no luck. Do you know of anything that's the equivalent of that product?

The one I posted does have surge protection, doesn't it?

Surge Protection:
AC Power Surge Protection
All outlets
Data Line Surge Protection
For phone, fax, modem, DSL, ethernet or cable applications


It's in the specifications for it. I've seen a lot of support for APC surge protectors especially.

I think the UPS from China, Too cheap to be trusted. Without a brand name, not possible to find if it conforms to any standards.

Voltage output looks wrong for OZ.

">Output Voltage / Frequency (On utility): 120V / 50/60Hz +/- 3% m"
>Output Voltage / Frequency (On battery): 115V +/-8%, 50 or 60 Hz +/- 1hz

This looks far more satisfactory, don't you think?

Much happier with that, the china product may have been OK, but not worth the risk.
