    If I got an i7, it would only replace the X4, the P4s, E6550, P8600, and Q6600 would still run (Q6600 is a friends computer, all of the others are computers used for other things and would still run).
    Some day :roll:

    Can't go wrong with free OS.I run 08 evaluation on all my machines.After the trial period expires nothing happens except the background turns black.You can still change it to any color.

    Free OS FTW!

    So it doesn't have bi-hourly reboots and expiration like windows 7 beta? have you got a link for that trial?

    Thanks RAMMIE.

    I was really looking for something to replace the W7 RC1 cos of the looming shutdown and expiration. Miss the days when I could get things free of MSDN payed by my university. I found they have a trial for the R2 version as well, so grabbed both in case one decides not to play nicely.

    i'm back... 4ghz isn't going to happen on this cooler. It runs nice and cool around 3.7ghz but for 4ghz temps go to idle at 54c and at load it hits around 75c. Not worth the jump in temps.I will see about getting a new cooler sometime or adding a 2nd fan to the heatsink for push/pull to see if it helps

    What cooler do you have? 54 at idle is way high, even a crappy cooler should do better than that. But ya, these do put out a lot of heat when you start clocking them up. Try the push/pull set-up and see if that lowers them some.

    That looks pretty decent, I'm surprised that your temps go up that much. The 3.7 clock will still be a very good producer, I'm guessing 3800-4000 ppd.

    I7 runs eight projects as opposed to six on the AMD six core.
