I received my MARS a few days back,so we decided to test it .So here it is, not a lot of results but still,
[COLOR="Navy"]Test Bed -
Intel C2D E8400/ E8500
DICE Cooling for CPU
AIR Cooling for Chipset/PWM
1GB*2 Team Xtreem PC2 5400 CL3
Seventeam ST 600EAD PSU
Sapphire ATI Radeon HD3850 512MB[/COLOR]
Some Pics from the benching session -
Super Pi Scores -
Last and the best, 5410
Everest Memory Bnechmark
555MHz @ 5-4-4-12 @ 2.5V

Wow man... thats a cracker. Thats about 70% OC.... great going.
I saw one guy with air coolers, the wolfie clocking upto 4G. These 8xxx are turning out to be a very good deal.
BTW i am planning to go for 8400. Will the ip35-e accommodate thermalright ultima 90 with a 120mm fan? Is there enough space?

Very entertaining thread :-)
Anyways, sorry to hijack, but can someone please suggest a decent gaming rig for 30k budget (for the rig. Monitor, keyboard etc I have.). 35k is the tops that can be spent.

^^Try to get this, close to 40k
Intel Core 2 Quadro Q6600 (Rs 10500 /- )
ABiT IP35-E (Rs 4900 /- )
XFX 8800 GT 512 MB (Rs. 13200 /-)
4 GB DDR-II 800 MHz (2x2 Format)(Rs. 3600 /-)
250 GB SATA-II 16MB Buffer (Rs. 2600 /- )
Cooler Master 600 Watts eXtreme power(Rs. 3200 /-)
Zebronics / iBall Cabinet (Rs. 2000 /-)
AMP 650 VA UPS(Rs. 2600 /- )
this will be a killer gaming rig
u can reduce price by opting for 2gb ram n choosing 1k ordinary cabinet

The prime 95 ran for about 1 hour with out any error at the above setting.
At full load on all core the peak temp reached was 70. The NB dosnt have a active cooling. May be i will put in a small fan next to it.
So the question i have is... what is the ideal cpu temp(under full load) for 24/7 system? What is the limit(again for a 24/7 system) i can push this proc to?
During my usage so far, the proc is running only at 6x. So even at current 345 clock there is enough power left unused. I just want to see what is the limit for this rig. The full config is in config thread.

Good start there gkrishn.
Not trying to dishearten you but the temperatures look to be on the higher side man.
Are you sure,you got the mounting of TRUE right ?
You might wanna add some small fan or something on the NB heatsink. and also on the PWM area.
There is a lot of potential still left in the setup.
Work on the temperatures buddy,so you can bump a little bit.
Here are my temperatures with a Q6600 (B3 Stepping)
Although these are on watercooling, my water cooling setup was a custom one so might not be that efficient and in some cases TRUE equals some basic Watercooling kits available.So you can use this as reference point or something.

G0 is much much cooler compared to B3.

@Amey: that's awesome results. how much did you spending on all this, must be a big numero?
had seen a while back a video on YouTube about some enthusiasts OCing AMD processor (don't know which) to 6.5Ghz with liquid nitrogen at -241 deg C i hear someone has now crossed the 7Ghz mark!
built myself a gaming rig a while back (spider platform):
AMD Phenom X4 9850 @2.5Ghz PIB (no BE/OC)
ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe (790FX/SB600 with ATI CrossFireX)
ATI Radeon HD 4870 1GB DDR5 (recently upgraded from HD3870 512MB)
OCZ 4GB DDR2 1066Mhz (NVIDIA SLi ready with heat spreaders)
Seagate 1x250GB, 1x500GB, 1x1TB
Microsoft Sidewinder X6
Logitech MX518/ Razer Lachesis/ Razer Goliathus
the rig is air cooled:
- stock AMD CPU cooler
- passive cooling for chipset
- 4x120mm and 1x200mm case fans
- Corsair Dominator Airflow (3x40mm for the RAM)
3DMarks 13k. tried (and succeeded) OCing a bit - both CPU and GPU, but didn't want to reduce their life because HQ (a.k.a my better half) will not authorize funds for a new rig if i burn this one - for another 4yrs!
runs Windows 7 Ultimate x64. 90% used for gaming and 10% other stuff.
any gamers out there in Team-BHP? maybe we've met online already!
PS: for all those looking to buy/build a gaming PC, don't go for a quad-core. very few games available in the market even make use of 2 cores, let alone 4! you can spend that money in getting a better graphics card. i use the rig for video editing/rendering, hence the quad.

@ Torqueguru, IronH4WK
Btw, LN2 is -196C only. What you are talking about is Liquid Helium which is -231C or so.
That 7G thing was sponsored by AMD and was done by some top overclockers.They used cherry picked CPUs. 7G happened after 1-2 golden CPUs were killed.haha
