    Not using any angled connectors (I personally think they look silly unless they're necessary, and think a nice curved tube looks slick) but it looks like A is the method of choice! Going to be picking up some razer blades, distilled water, and a funnel soon.

    OK I was cleaning out the house today and came across my Asus P6T X58 motherboard that a Ebay buyer fucked up (SEE THREAD HERE). Well I had a spare CPU so I took a threading needle and some bright light, a magnifying glass and started bending back the bent pins. Well After about 30 minutes I had got them to as best as I could so I put in the CPU and the 3x1GB DDR3 ECC sticks then crossed my fingers and it the power button........ then BAM! the screen post to the bios were I checked the temps and other things like voltages. I havnt hooked up a hard drive yet and did a stability test but I let it idle in bios for about 30 minutes while I finished my clean up and it was still responsive and I also rebooted it about 10 times and had no issues with not booting so Im gonna leave this CPU in the socket and maybe use it as something but IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well I booted it with hirens boot cd and played around for a little bit. Had no issues, I am thinking today I will install it in an antec 300 I have in my storage building. I need to get a proper PSU for it cause right now I am using a 350W 20+4 pin on a 24+8 pin board OMG!

    My sister decided to ask me to build a beast for her! Although I was limited on choosing the parts as it was all from one store and they didn't exactly have the best but they still had decent enough parts.
