    cheesy, could you update the OP pleasy? I just re-read the thread and spotted that a GTS250 was donated but the 8400GS is still in the OP. And any other updates you think should go in there too please :toast:

    Also, only just noticed that EiSFX donated a monitor and shipped it all the way from Canada :respect:
    Kudos to all of the overseas donators, all willing to bear the brunt of shipping. Much love here peeps

    No monitor was donated, I think it worked out too much on shipping

    Aw man, well, still kudos for the offer EiSFX :toast:
    Can you PM cheesy with an updated list of the parts donated and the donators please? Or just anything that differs from the OP actually, that'll do.

    No worries man :toast:

    You is da awesome! :rockout: :respect:

    Should you overclock the Q6600? Dude, do you even have to ask...:shadedshu lol

    The only thing that I recommend you be careful with the overclock is to err on the side of total long term stability, since you are donating the rig. It's not very nice for the recipient if it crashes every week or two, or does strange things, like overclocks can cause.

    First off, make sure it's Prime95 stable at stock speed. There are other demanding apps for you to subject it to, but I can't remember what they are. Once you're satisfied that it's stable, then overclock it until it becomes unstable and/or starts to overheat and then back off some. Even if you only have a 10% overclock, it's still worthy of being classed as 'overclocked', so no need to go all out on spending time and effort on it.

    If you need any overclocking advice, you're in the right place! :toast:

    EDIT

    I'm really proud to have a link to this thread in my sig and it's nice to see scammy do the same. I have changed my sig quite a few times now, but this link always comes back. I'll keep it there until at least the rig is donated and it's all done and dusted, if not longer.

    What an awesome tribute to MKMods! :rockout::rockout:

    $50 which equates to £30 and thats how much the 250 cost, not too bad imo :toast:

    This is what I am doing, I would shoot for 3.6 if it was for myself but a q6600 at 3ghz is sufficint for most.

    Qubit, I think I'll be ok overclocking lol remember taking my E7300 to 4.2ghz on a P5Q-Pro, happy days :D

    Hey peeps, Israar asked me to let you know, he hasn't done one or anything, he's just moved house and getting the 'net set up. He'll be back on soon.

    Thanks, I think most of the stuff is covered, but if you've got any bling like a RAM fan or lights I think they might go down well :toast:

    I have a fan that came with my Patriot ram but I dont know if that will connect up correctly as I'm not 100% certain of the specs your building!

    I could see if I can find a Corsair memory flow thing... I'm sure someone I know might have one of those!! I dont tend to go for lights.... :(

    The specs so far are in the OP, here's some photo's of the rig built (looking at the RAM, I don't think a fan will fit actually :():

    If you have a look in your bits-and-bobs box (we've all got one lol), you might find something useful. One thing that springs to mind is anything that will help with cable management as the case isn't great for that.

    NdMk2010 should be here soon, I know he's working a ton so I think he's only doing this on the weekends. Thanks again for your offer and thanks in advance for your donation :toast: It's much appreciated.

    Yeah, his passing was very sad. I never knew him, but his reputation here was legendary. :respect:

    I'm surprised you didn't see this thread from my sig previously - a great big linky has been there for ages, lol. :)
