    More good news!
    The CPU, mobo, and RAM from KieX arrived today. I have them assembled in my Source 210 with an Earthwatts 650w. I'm installing Windows now. I'm installing to a miserable 120gb 5400RPM laptop disk because my 250GB 3.5" disk is having issues.
    Last picture I took before the camera batteries ran out:

    Thanks! :)

    I'm currently running on the iGPU so I didn't have to interfere with the GTX460s folding in the old i7, but I'll have a GTX470 for it next week :)

    Currently running at stock speeds, once I have Windows installed I'm going to go for a mild (~4.0-4.2GHz) OC :)

    2700k ;)

    That's my goal, at least for now. I don't want to push things absurdly high, but the extra 600MHz will probably do 800 PPD or more, which is certainly worthwhile for the minor effort involved.

    Given how frustrating the Xigmatek Gaia was to install, it had better perform well. At least it was only $20

    I can't imagine my $20 cooler standing up to 5GHz, but I would be happy with the mid-4GHz range :)

    I have both my 2600K's at 1.32V 4.5ghz stable. The one at work crunches 24/7 unless I want to play dayz

    I've now tried installing Windows on to two different HDDs, and things still aren't behaving properly. While the system will boot, it's incredibly sluggish (like Pentium 3 running Vista) and the HDD light is on pretty much constantly. It's possible that both HDDs are having issues (the 2.5" one is from a Mac that was having problems, and the 3.5" one was behaving strangely in my old C2D setup). I'm not convinced that this is the issue, however. I'm copying everything off of my external HDD now and I'm going to try using the disk from it (which I know works fine). I'll keep you guys posted on what progress I can make.

    I am currently just at 4.1g's now. Has been rock solid for almost a month at that. Time to jump er up a bit. :laugh:

    Build is complete and is running Windows 7 x64 :toast:

    For reasons I don't understand, it didn't like my Crucial RAM (I guess I shouldn't be surprised, this is now the third system that doesn't like it). KieX gave me 4GB of G.Skill because of a shipping delay (thanks!), so I have that now :)

    This Asus board apparently runs the CPU at 3.9Ghz even on all 8t @ 100% load...strange. Not complaining, OFC :D
    Temps are IMO amazing, with a 2nd fan I think that I can get a pretty good OC out of it :)

    The cooler install is a bit of a challenge but much easier to do with the board out of the case. :eek:

    Great to see everything is working out!!! :toast:

    Oh, it's worked out :)
    I guess I get what I deserve when I try to use the HDD from a Macbook that I was given because "it sounds weird and doesn't work". I'm instead using the HDD from my external enclosure (originally from my Thinkpad) and it's working much better).

    And don't you see CPU-Z? :confused:
    See that SATA cable? It goes to where the HDD is. The HDD is stuck to the far side of the HDD cage with some double-sided tape. It's a 2.5" model, so it wouldn't fit right anyways, and I decided I might as well get it completely out of the way :toast:

    Oh, that will be solved. The GTX470 is enormous and will probably double the power usage of the computer (perhaps more than that).

    Welcome back in the game ION/IFX/.--. Nice build. Temperature is dropping in Denmark so soon (coming back from my job abroad) I will re-commissioning my i920 and maybe upgrade the GPU to a newer model. I was thinking that I would try out the new ASUS 660.

    Oh I'm back, I've been crunching again since June. Put out something like half a million point since then :)

    This i7 is sweet, crunching @ 4GHz even right now at 60C on a $20 cooler. Amazing

    I'm negotiating for the purchase of an i7 920 on [H], I've found an EVGA X58 board for $50 shipped, and I think I can get an i7 for somewhere around $110-130. Then I'd just need another one of my Antec 650w PSUs from home and a real air cooler, and I'd have another 4k+ PPD :toast:

    I know that you returned some time ago, what I meant was with your recent addition "you are back" as a contender to top pie.

    I love it. Great price too :D
    Ahh, yes. Thank you :)
    We'll see how I'm doing, w/ this setup I should be at ~16k PPD now, if I can convince other people to consistently run their setups probably a bit over 20k. My goal is to end up at least #7, perhaps higher. We'll have to see how much more HW I acquire :)
