    indeed, and it almost didnt hurt + i got a bunch of painkillers and other things,
    but i've only taken some pills to prevent infection thing i think it is

    dont like painkillers unless it really hurts like a bad tooth or similar

    OK guys, sorry I haven't been on for the past couple days, but I return with good news :cool:
    The i7 build is definitely happening, it probably won't until I return to town in mid-June, but it will be happening. I'm hoping for a solid 3.6-4ghz OC (depending on temps)

    I've heard 3.8GHz is the sweet spot with those.

    I'm hoping for 3.8ghz, but it's heating up fairly significantly here in NC, and I'm not sure how well the H50 will cope with a high-clocked i7 (it is a budget WC kit after all)

    I've seen it done with high-end air cooling, your H50 should be able to cope with it.

    The good: I now have a brand new Core i7 860, Asus P7P55D Pro, and 2GB Corsair XMS3. All for free
    The bad: I have to wait almost 2 weeks before I can do anything with them (June 11 or 12 to be exact)

    Still worth it given the price :roll:
    My output is going to remain low for the next two weeks since I'm going out of town, but after that it should be much nicer :)

    You should be able to hit 3.8 GHz easily. I hit 4.2 stable on my i930, but backed it down to 4.0 until I get a bigger radiator. A push-pull fan arrangement will help.

    Well, I'll try for 3.8 then. I'm currently running in push-only w/ shroud with the stock H50 fan, but I could probably invest in some new fans :cool:

    If I told u.. I'd have to kill u
    Hey guys. Just checking in to say Im still alive. Its been a rough couple of weeks. My dad has been in and out of the hospital with seizures. We have found out that his brain tumor has returned for a 2nd round. :shadedshu He had one removed in Jan of this year. This one is in the same place as the other. Thats actually good news. No other tumors have been detected in any other part of the brain. They have decided that radiation will be the plan of attack this time around. They are thinking if they can kill what is there things should improve and he should return to normal. He was to have radiation after the other one was removed to prevent this from happening again but his insurance would not cover it, so it was not done. :mad:

    Good luck to your dad blkhogan. Tell me if you need anything. I'm just a phonecall and a few hours away.

    Also, I have some sad news myself. Lauren's grandfather died yesterday around 8 AM. (Lauren is my girlfriend for those of you that don't know.) So don't be surprised if I disappear for a few days at one point. I have to help deal with the family stuff.
