    I wish. Exodus and I are sitting next to each other at the Noreaster 2010 Lan and discussed doing an LN2 Session. :D This Thuban seems pretty promising so far 3.8ghz at 1.35V stable.

    So I found out last night that the Noctua D14 fits in the CM 590 case......though, it is very, very tight. With two 120mm fan on top, the normal 120mm exhaust, and two side holes for fans open there sure is a ton of airflow around the the cpu socket. I think it might embarrass my HAF in how much air is moving around in that area.

    I've got pics but don't have a card reader on my laptop. I'm stressing the AMD right now so I can't use it and I had to take the Noctua off my i7 which has the card reader so I'm going to have to wait until later this evening to post up pics.

    Some highlights:
    With the D14 on my 790FXT-UD5P you lose the closest two dimms if you have tall heat sinks
    Getting to the cpu fan connector on that board with everything installed is a pain
    Filters rule! :rockout: :laugh:

    Anyone have any ideas of how to block off the side vents on the 590? The one over the cpu is useless with the Noctua and I think it might be hurting airflow a little.

    proof that you can utilize all cores playing BC2. Sure it may not necessarily be optimized for it, but logging using Task manager showed that all 6 cores were in use in-game...

    (plus: six graphs is sexier than 4 lol)

    Six is nice, but I've had the pleasure of seeing a Task Manager with 16 graphs! :eek: (system my dad uses at IBM with 4 quad-core Xeons)
