    Looking forward to you hitting over 4.0 on that e8400! Nice build, wish I had the resources right now to do so...maybe in a few months...

    Until then, I'll watch you do some damage with your new bruiser!

    Well what can I say? If you pull this off you'll have a monster PC. I think you'll be happy with it.
