    :roll::roll:

    CPU: http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...9kdWN0X3NwZWNpZmljYXRpb25z&product_uid=124869

    MB: http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...9kdWN0X3NwZWNpZmljYXRpb25z&product_uid=131173

    GPU: My GPU isn't listed on ebuyer for some odd reason but I'm using my current GPU with the new CPU and MB (8800 GTS 640MB).

    RAM: http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...9kdWN0X3NwZWNpZmljYXRpb25z&product_uid=116755 I already have this RAM in my computer right now and I'm using that RAM along with my CPU and MB.

    Rate that system. I hope my GPU don't bottleneck as some of you MAY say but I think it should go alright until I get a 8800 Ultra or GTX and I will get a better heatsink and fan too for the CPU from that site next Friday when I get paid so for the time being I'll have to use stock cooling.

    So I'm only upgrading my MB and CPU and keeping my current GPU and RAM which should all go together and run faster then my current rig. I'll post back in when I get my new heatsink and fan. Any suggestions on any GOOD 775 heatsink and fans? Arctic ? Sythe?

    Yummy.....8 I'd say

    I hope your Q6600 is a G0. My Q6600 running at 450fsb right now (x8), can POST at 4.2GHz


    I had the 120mm Scythe Infinity, and it worked well. Problem is those DAMN PUSHPINS...

    I think you'd have to mod the Scythe a bit to get the best cooling out of it (bend some fins, add a fan or 3, thermal paste the heatpipes).
    I'm not sure how the artic's match up.


    Oh, and the Scythe Infinity is HUGE...not sure if it would fit that P35 board. The RAM would definately stop you from putting a fan on that side...

    With Intel heatsink and fans, can't you rotate them any way like I want the fan facing the back of the case so it's near the fan?

    nice rig i'll give it an 8 to, and the scythe infinity is truely a monster both in size and cooling and you can attach the fans on any side with room or have a dual fan set up if you wished but i have heard a lot of noise about the ThermalRight Ultra 120 too.

    i do a lot of shpping on ebuyer aswell although for my next rig im getting these sticks not on ebuyer http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-058-GL 2x1gb geil I thought they was good value at £65 4-4-4-12

    and i could not find a motherbored on ebuyer that did 2x16 sli so i have to go else where for one of them.

    If you look at the Scythe:

    You can put the fan on any of the 4 sides, but in the 3 times I've used it the fan wouldn't fit on motherboard cutout side OR on the ram side. No way to get the airflow to go through the fins that way :(

    But with a PSU like the mushkin 580 you could use 2 fans push/pull. Problem is you may end up drawing warm air from the gfx :banghead:

    I'd say best used with a PSU that has a fan on the bottom or a motherboard with an 'odd' layout (or better CPU/RAM placement or dual channel in the far two slots)

    I was going to purchase that RAM but went for the OCZ Platinum RAM instead :roll:

    My old RAM sticks were faulty.

    Would all of you say that the Gigabyte MB, Intel quad, my current OCZ RAM and 8800 GTS 640MB bottleneck or would you say it's ok?

    I would probably go for a better mobo, but thats me... Should be a pretty hot machine, looks good across the boards.
