    nah. im just ready for something new. something different. im actually thinking, since theres no way i can get over 4.6ghz with my i7 920, i'll just run it on water and play with different video cards till the octocore comes out.

    Anyone running the MSI x58, I'm considering getting a 920 and that board instead of a q9550 and a P5E or P5E-Deluxe...

    Wouldn't mind making the move, but what will it do easily with air looking at this cooler-
    Thermaltake CL-P0508

    I really don't like heat and I don't like pumping my voltages either, although if it needs a small boost for the kick I'm willing.

    It's the only reason my Xeon isn't running 3.6

    im looking forward to the msi results.... although im an asus guy.

    TRUE is the best air cooler for i7.

    i feel i7 is a better choice as of now for anyone looking to upgrade.

    the money isnt that much. especially when you take in account the money you'll get from selling your old stuff.

    I'm an Asus guy myself, but its the cost thing that's stopping me from getting it..

    Really even my x3210 right now is plenty fast for me and I'm not a bench queen so that doesn't much matter. Just figure if I'm going to upgrade might as well do the best for my buck, and wouldn't mind spending a few more bucks to get an i7 if its going to be worth it.

    What I don't want is a headache though.

    no headache involved.

    its a bit of a trick to find coolers for i7 right now but if you need help with that LMK.

    you can most likely plug everything you have into the new setup and it will boot up without reinstalling the OS.... so no probs there. at worst you may have to call up microsoft and reactivate windows(or use other methods) but thats not a big deal, it can be ironed out in a matter of minutes.

    Upgrading to the I7 should be lots of fun, i love getting new hardware.

    Why is the True better then the Xig Direct Touch, they get numbers within +/- 2 degrees c

    All my stuff is on order, the GIG X58 Extreme board is now scheduled to be here on friday...

    I would have went Asus myself, but i am having so much fun with the Gig P45 UD3P that i want to carry that to the I7 goodness

    I'm not worried about re-setting up, it will be a all new system minus maybe a video card and sound cards.
