    Ya my first build took an hour...no cable management. My last build showcased a few pages back took about 6 hours...cable management taken into consideration during the build. My friend brought up me being OCD jokingly :laugh:. I didn't even do a good job on the motherboard side only because his father called 4 times in the last hour of the build telling him to come home for supper!! :roll:

    When I swapped to my new processor and mobo a couple weeks ago i searched for TIM comparisons. I couldn't find any that showed significant differences between the major brands. Didn't find anything terribly recent either, but there haven't been that many changes in most formulas.

    Yep, it was a great value. The case is really good except for the side panels, they are an absolute pain to get on and off (esp. the one that smushes up against the cables). Other than that, nothing bad to say about it at all.

    That's because you used an electrically conductive paste on something without an IHS.

    NICE!

    Now do some Calculus Integrals or Derivatives!

    Handy Calc app on the Android Market called Calculus Tools. Really nice app, handy for quick derivatives, series, or even integrals.

    What exact class are you in?

    That's actually a teacher's edition of the previous class, which I took a harder version of way back in 2007. Needless to say, I need some review, so my professor lent it to me. I'm in MATH 215: Probability and Linear Algebra for Business Majors. Thanks for the hint on the app, downloading now.

    Edit: Way to steal my thunder Assassin48!

    This isn't really my PC but, I finally got all my fittings and my 2nd XSPC RX120. I'm pretty sure this is the way I'm going to have things mounted on this tech bench. So there's two RX 120's and a 3x120 Koolance radiator. MCP 355 w/xspc res top. Just bleeding and checking for leaks now. I call it thunderbench.

    I thought there was a LA app to, but cant seem to find it. I'll email Andy(Calc Tools guy) and see if he can make one. :)

    Nice PC by the way, love the 470! Come over to the 400 series Clubhouse sometime!

    Depends on if I'm gonna keep it :laugh: Fan gets way too loud for me under load.

    Won't need the LA app, thanks though. We're already done with LA after the first 2 days of class. 3 sections/day. We move FAST. 16 days of class for a course.
