    yea that maintenace thing was a lil longer then normal and was kinda rediculous. It might be a screw up but heck i'll take it for some sweet pie.

    As yummie as that pie is tonight and I get a piece. I'm not going to eat it. I'm going to lick it till its all gone. That way it last longer and the sweet, sweet taste gets to jump around on my tongue. I just hope I don't get a hair in my pie ;) lol.

    Look up. Look way up.
    That's right it's "Height"

    You mean "Capital" surely Stinger.

    I'm a grammar AND spelling nazi as well. Including the proper use of "a' and "an" "their, there. ans they're" etc... :mad:

    Wut r u guyz talkin bout? :laugh:

    Quick question guys, is the Zambezi 8150 worth the extra money over the 8120? You know if they are slightly better binned or something? Or simply just clock speed that separates the two?

    I'd say probably not, given that you aren't doing "extreme" OCs on your CPUs (I assume you'll push the FX to ~4GHz), and I'd imagine that either should be able to reach your target OC fine (for massive OCs, I can see the possibility of a bigger difference).

    That's what I'm thinking. I'll probably get the 8120. I got a steal from a buddy for a AM3+ board so I want to get my 3rd cruncher going ASAP. Just need the rest of the stuff. :(

    I think you can make savings on cooling. A friend of mine and I have 2 CPU's running at the same frequency. But he's 8150 satisfied with cooler for $ 40, and my 8120 need much more expensive. For the same 4,4GHz.

    I agree- go 8150. The price difference is like $30 now and is worth it for the better binned chip. :toast:

    Well, it's cooled off slightly here. And I'm still trying to get to my 4Mil Milestone .... so I've cranked up a couple of semi-retired crunchers to help push me there :toast: It's still going to take me awhile, but I'll crunch on :rockout:

    It's a BE... it's supposed to be overclocked :D I'll probably run it at 3.8/2400NB minimum- the board I'm getting has 6+2 power and I have 2 nice coolers to pick from for it (Xig Venus or a Spire Thermax Eclipse III)
