    wait what? maybe I'm misunderstanding but core for core i7 is much better, but I assume you mean a 6 core PX6 @ 3ghz performs like a 4 core HT i7 @ 3ghz, that seems about right, except for that in gaming practically squat uses 6 cores, making the i7 the better choice for gaming anyway (as per core speed matters more), and for superior scaling of multiple cards.

    Problem is, is that the X6 goes toe to toe price wise with the i5 quad so you don't get the help (if there is any) of HT in the same price range from Intel.

    Yeah, meant the quads, not the hex core i7's.

    1090t is in the same price range as i7 860 and 870.

    and yet the 1055t (with the 1075t in between) is in the same price range as the i5 750/760.

    If I'm going to spend 300 bucks on a cpu it won't be a 1156 board when I can get a 950 and x58 for almost the same and possible future access to Westmere six core.

    Well i went AMD because of what you get for the price. Currently undervolting my 1055T and i have it at stock clocks @ 1.175v ... Going to try 1.1500v now.

    Edit, reached the 'limit'. 1.000v is lowest i can go. Pity 0.9*** doesn't work, would have been awesome to get sub-1v :p

    The pictures on Newegg make it look small but it seems to be regularly sized.

    Don't like the silver interior though. Ever since I bought the CM Storm Scout for this build, I haven't been able to stand silver interiors.

    send it to someone that will do it then :p
    if you have a friend or someone that works at a dealership you maybe able to have it done in the body shop with some left over paint and when they have spare time. If so it wouldn't cost you a cent and would look good too. but that is only if you have a inside connection :)
