    So excited but I probably wont swap this out this weekend. Want to get done with my online classes first, but I couldn't wait to show pics. Oh and hacking my Canon Camera makes the pics look a lot better. Enjoy.

    *seems the same thing happening with Paulieg is happening with me and others so I am using Flickr to host the photos*

    Will do. Chip I got is from Soparik and it is a Phenom II 955, waiting for it to get here, so I know it has left Canada so hopefully Tomorrow or Saturday. Will post numbers. I swear I busted in my pants when taking those pics.


    Oh and will definitely update to latest bios.

    Oh man have fun with that board, I know I am! Nice pick on the CPU too! With the same combo and different RAM, I easily get to 3.8 on stock volts.

    Yeah I was tore up on the ram. I wanted some Corsair Dominators, but eh, price was a bit much. Then I thought about the OCZ Reapers, and well those were a tad high too. I really wanted either Patriot Vipers or OCZ Blade series, but those were a bit more than I Wanted to pay. THe G Skill Tridents are bad ass though with nice cooling to them. If I was able I would have looked for the Pi's but not sure they have those in DDR3 flavor.

    I'm kinda intrigued by these from G.Skill but with those PI series all I could find for you was 2Gb kits.

    The 4GB Ripjaws with 7-7-7-21 timings seem a bit better and also a tad cheaper.

    When I finally install it I will do some tests. Sorry for the shiny, I have an awesome camera, what can I say. I probably won't install this all until like the last weekend in Sept. I think my classes (online) should be done by then. Ill have to bleed my lines and redo the hoses for one of them so I Want to make sure I get through this quarter.

    Hey WarEagleAU . I am updating my rig to AM# . I have a PH II X4 955 coming today $189.00 . I was going to get the Asus M4A79-T Deluxe mb , I love my M3A79-T D . I have been taking a hard look at the Crosshair III Formular and I am going with it for sure . I also have been looked at your memory . I may go with that also . I hope AMD/ATI comes out with a bad azz 5000 X2 series GPU to run this mb in quad crossfire down the road !!! For now I will run my two 4890 duel CF . Good luck with your board man its awesome !!!

    Alright, finally got the board put in and the memory and the proc. Redid some tubing on the water cooling loop and all that, and now I am flying. Seems a bit smoother and faster to me but I have yet to do any benchies. I may do it before my Windows 7 gets here from Amazon.com because then I have to reformat. Going to update to latest bios and then reboot and get everything set.
