    I would hold out for the 2600K as it has hyper-threading:)

    A core with hyperthreading vs. a core without is about a 30% performance increase. Not huge, but significant. I agree with Hammer, though, your combo is worth a 2600k, hold out.

    I've seen other forums and...well, TPU was a fit for me. I registered for an opinion on my first major build, not only did I get excellent advice but I also got a warm welcome. Here it's all about technology and fun. I love TPU @stinger > :nutkick: :laugh: :p

    I thought that as well, I would rather have a spare IDE instead of floppy personally.

    This is one of the better mATX boards, I would have to say though that the ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z would be the best of the mATX 1155 board.

    So I'm thinking about getting this server mobo and processors to use here. But I just don't know if I have the room. I think my max crunchers is 3. So I wanted to give anyone here at tpu first pick on it.

    It's a Supermicro motherboard X6DH3-G3 with 2 intel Xeon Nocona CPUs, 2GB DDR2 ECC Ram, and 2 copper intel heatsinks.

    Yeah, I just don't have space for it. I'm pretty sure this thing would make a decent home server. Maybe even a pretty good cruncher. (Both CPU's have Hyper Threading from what I've read.)

    I don't have the case or anything like that thou. It's just the mobo, heatsinks, cpus, and ram.

    Edit- Well I also have the connectors for the built in RAID card for 6 Sata drives.

    Yeah, they are the single cores with HTT. I'd expect something along the lines of whatever a X3 would put out. But that's just a guess.

    So I got paid today and made a bit of a newegg order. :rockout:

    Don't mind the cheap headset or the MX-2. Just some random tidbits I needed. :laugh: Next month I plan to order a new mobo and DDR3 RAM. It's nice when you get a bonus. It really is. :D

    Awesome bro! I was eyeballing one of those Silverstone cases the other day, for some reason I just felt like buying one. But I ended up getting the NZXT case from Peet. :toast: Great little build so far. Any particular RAM/Board you have your eyes on?
