i7 980X price is $1000 USD, and like Binge said it is the only one coming out, might as well wait until the second stepping comes out 6 months after release.

Guru of 3D Source with price info.

Finally got the watercooling in:








Now I can't wait to see what I can accomplish with some decent CPU temps. Bad part is the mobo waterblock was not the right one, so I replaced the TIM back on the stock cooling and put it back on. :mad:

I should be getting mine today. Just waiting for the man with the big brown truck to show up. I paid ~$88 for mine but shipped UPS ground from SVC. Cheapest place I could find.

As for price, get a Mega and add 2 cheap fans to it and your real close to where the Noctua is. Doesn't see like a big jump for me since it was between those two for me.

Can't wait to replace my V2 so I can really start pushing my chip. 4.4ghz here I come! :rockout:

Yeah, I wasn't too happy at the final outcome after shipping. But the pros outweigh the price. It comes with TWO fans, mounting hardware for AM3, 1156, and 1366 as well as a tube of Noctua paste. At $84 before shipping, its definitely worth the money. After shipping however.. ack..

But still, $80-$90 for a cooler that out performs every cooler out there, its worth it. My NH-U12P was $75, add the two Scythe 120mm fans I bought and it was $90. So.... its all the same really.
