    Thanks! Can you show some pics? :D
    Megashadow or Megahalem? :confused: I hear that the Megashadow just looks better and doesn't really cool any better? True bro?

    I was curious about the different averages I would have for the 4 different rigs I have crunching. So here they are:
    i7 Main rig (In System Specs):
    13 day average = 4,340
    i7-2:
    13 day average = 4,268
    i7 Mini:
    14 day average = 4,476
    Xeon 3220:
    8 day average = 2,112

    I think it's supposed to cool slightly better due to some coating it has. I have the megashadow. The megahalem should also come with clips for push and pull.

    It's a different color and it comes with a second set of fan clips. That's the only thing I could see different. I've got Mega's and my buddy has a Shadow, and the both seem to keep these i7 chips at about the same temps.

    This is the difference I was talking about, but it has nothing to do with temps. I was confused for some reason :(

    Black nickel plated to preserve top quality.

    Yeah. honestly, the nickel plating looks really nice, and after you buy an extra set of fan clips for the Mega, the price b/t the 2 is minimal.

    Only reason I got the shadow was for my build in the Element S case. But I do agree the nickel plating does look great as well.

    I placed an order the other day for an Intel Q8400 system to have as a full-time cruncher, but paypal payment seems to have failed (will know tomorrow for sure).

    In the event I need to place another order, can someone tell me which of these bundles would give the highest PPD @stock speed for under £250?

    Definitely betweent he X4 and the Q8300. The AMD comes at 100 MHz faster. I say since speed is what counts in WCG, maybe the AMD might have a slight edge in PPD.

    I'm a little inclined towards the Intels because I have my old TRUE with the 775 fittings, so could have as an open air. What PPD should I expect from them? 900?
