    I agree, what exactly do we suggest?

    It looks like a really good rig

    Go with watercooling i guess.

    I don't know any suggestions :) I know that is very vague. Other than that I wanted to show it off. I was thinking about going over 4GHZ OC but I have that Foxconn socket waiting awhile to see how it works at a lower level.

    But as far as suggestion go.... things like add the window side panel? Or next hard ware move things like that LOL I should of been better with what I was trying to say.

    very nice! Yeah my temps at 4.0 under water hit just under 70C at 4.0 1.30v and 75C at 4.2 1.36. Jut wanted a comparison to someone else with the i5.

    I decided to keep it at 4.0 just because at 4.2 C-states do not work bc i have to use the 21x multi.

    Very nice bud wtg on your 4GHZ mark.
    That's were I want to get too but I have that Foxconn socket. Now a lot of people told me not to worry. But I am naturally a worrier. So I am seeing what it does here for awhile first but then I will bump it up. Possibly even go for my first water system.
    EVGA said that Foxconn has fixed the problem since and it was only a hand full of sockets.... but even though they are EVGA I'm sure they still have sales first in mind and would say anything to keep things calm:)

    So I think I definitely have a 4GHZ chip here but we will have too wait and see :)

    On a 5870? Not worth it. Perhaps on the CPU. Start gaming! I'm just wondering why the switch to Intel from an AMD rig without stating the obvious reasons.

    Okay well I understand Folding is stringing computers together for huge computational needs but..... besides being nice for others I never understood the befits for the person doing it..... Maybe I don't fully understand folding???? Plus I also heard on a 5870 it doesn't do well???

    Already rolling with that bud! Plus Benching..... New Benches Preliminary not done yet..... Highest Futuremark score...... P17793

    Folding is volunteer work- people do it for a variety of reasons. BOINC will probably give you more choices for a cause.
    Also, get a SSD.
