    PC temps before and after being Overclocked to a stable 3.6 GHz. This is best OC I'm finding other people achieve out of Zotac's H55 as well. No surprise, it's a HTPC board and not intended for Overclocking.

    Motherboard = ZOTAC H55 ITX 1156
    CPU = Intel Core i7-870 Lynnfield 2.93GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core
    GPU = ZOTAC 470 GTX
    SSD: Mushkin Callisto 64GB
    PSU: Silverstone 600W

    COOLING SPECS:
    CPU = Custom Copper water block
    GPU Cooling = EK-FC470 GTX water block

    2.93 GHz Core i7 870 Lynnfield CPU at stock and Idle



    Overclocked to 3.6 and running Prime95 (core i7 860/870 has a 100c max)
