    Well the P6T6 arrived at newegg's rma delivery place. Hasn't entered the system yet so hoping friday at the latest the replacement goes back out. Who knows though really.

    Well RMA has been approved, now a new one just needs to ship. Hopefully early next week I will get that back and can start really adding some nice stuff.

    Few shots of the rig up and running doing a few small tests for Fitseries3 currently. If you want some specific ones let me know, will put a few more up tonight with benches.

    1.9v, as long as the qpi/dram voltage is then set to with in .5v (not sure if it has to be + or - or can be either. Hopefully Fitseries3 can give a better answer. And here is what happens when you open your windows when it is 14f/-10c out side and leave your rig off for about 15 mins.

    That's awesome man! Really envious!

    Does the power circuitry for the cpu get hot on the i7's? I noticed you don't have a fan over them.

    Also, can i claim dibs on one of those 260's if/when you decide to sell them? :D

    Haven't gotten around to fully testing the ram and CPU yet.

    So I've discovered/decided I don't do well with pics. One of these days I will do some better shots or something. Here is my work for the night.

    There are L brackets that are used to mount a fan to help move air over a MB and cool it, so rather than put a fan there I mounted the rad. Link provided for the tech station I bought, they can be found at a couple different online stores plus at Microcenter for those who have one locally.

    Got bored tonight so decided to throw the latest Win 7 (7068) on my rig and for now do some HDD benches and vid benches. HDD first, all at once, both the Velociraptor and 750GB Seagate 7200.11. I've been skeptial of my VR the entire time I've had it, and been doing benches the past few weeks and results usually come up the way they did tonight. As you can see its less consistant that then Seagate, and in ATTO writes faster than it reads. :confused:
