    thanks Guys, the Kingston Beasts is arriving this Tuesday, so they'll be replaced then.

    regarding the radiator in the top of the case i switched it with the fans, so the fans are just above the CPU unit, pulling air through the radiator.

    the CPU is oc @ 4,6 Ghz at 46 Centigrade (Load) and 33 centigrade at Idle.

    also ordered a couple of Red LED fans and some Red LED rails to Mount in top and bottom of the case.

    Yes im pretty surprised too, the Corsair is working good, however both its fans is controlled by the motherboard, because of some issues in Corsairs current firmware.

    but its handling it well with fanXpert.

    its actually my first OC , and its really fast when you switch to this from a laptop!

    did a 12 hrs. Prime95 test overnight, running @ 4.6 Ghz, the temp. never exceeded 60 C.

    so i guess the system is stable at this clock.
