    Replaced my Gigabyte X58 UD4P with the X 58 Extreme:

    The Fenrir does a pretty good job keeping the i7 cool:

    I am waiting for a new backplate for the Apogee GTZ. Then I will see about figuring out (never used splitters before) how to water cool the nb with the supplied 3/8" nozzles as I use 1/2".
    This board requires a higher VCore to run stable. My ASUS and EVGA boards run at 1.26 to 1.28.

    Gotta love the hot swap bay of the Obsidian 800d. :D Ready to go with no adapters, just 300MB/s read/writes :D

    Some fun numbers:

    Compared to two 320GB WD AAks in Raid0:

    And just for fun, one single Nova 128GB:

    Oh, may have an opportunity to test these on a Sata 3 board in the up coming weeks. :D Anyone with ideas on how to show the benifits of Sata 3 over Sata 2(aside from mech vs ssd) please let me know.

    That case looks oddly familiar. It's a pretty good little case isn't it?

    If you want to put anything over 88cm tall in it, you'll have to get out the saw. I'm thinking of possibly try to put a Corsair H50 in it, but this Athlon II x4 runs very cool and this Opty heatpipe cooler works quite nicely! Perhaps if you can find a tower cooler that is thin enough to fit in between the PSU and the HDD bay it could work, but then you need room for a fan.

    You can get it both ways and in different configurations also. I have two...one in a Silverstone case and the other bare for the bench rig.

    Well, you would with most cases. A three foot tall heatsink would be rather cumbersome. :laugh:
