    like you said... its the same cooler, new bracket, new fan shroud and comes with a not so great fan(IMO). if its the same price i dont see why not to get the new one.... of course unless you want the 775 mounting hardware too for more usability.

    i think im gonna hold out for a swiftech GTZ

    Yea, let me know when you find that too, Gabe said they would be selling on line this week.
    But also i heard that if your buying a new GTZ it comes wih the socket 1366 mounting bracket...

    MAIL JUST CAME

    My I7 920 is here, along with my Koolance mounting Brackets, so it's just the GIG X58 Extreme which will be here wed/friday!!!


    I forgot all about the stock Intel cooler, I wonder how that works,,,,

    Without having read all 15 pages:

    I am running my i940 at 3.8 GHz with 1.4V right now, by simply raising the baseclock.

    I just got a 6GB Tri-channel G.Skill kit for review, which will be done on this system. ;)

    cheers

    Your CPU test 2 looks bugged it should be below 60 steps/s.

    Edit: nevermind just realized you have a GTX 260 doing the physics for your ati cards didn't realize that could be done.
