    You bet. In a way it's good because the heat has been kicking my ass lately. Since it's pretty cold lately here in Miami, 40's. The a/c is off because down stairs its freezing if it is on. However, with no a/c and a closed room with two crunchers, the heat is worse than when it's hotter outside and the a/c is on. It's just horrible. Now that I am down to two crunchers, I am going to focus on silence and keeping the heat down. My PH II rig will be almost silent since the fans are hooked to a fan controller, the QX rigs is the one I gotta work on. I'll probably throw it on the tech station with some antec tri cools and keep them on minimum. That should do.

    Once my case arrive I will be running one of my Athlon X4 CPUs for about a week 100% WCG to test for stability, depending on how things go it may run for 2 weeks or so.

    CP, Im with VW ION (darn Nuke avatars)- I thought you had an i7 as well.

    CP maybe me and you can battle. That would be kinda cool. but i don't see it working out like that as you would have 8 cores against my 10 cores 24/7 and 8 random :ohwell: maybe if you get good clocks that can happen as some of my cores are slower(3ghz/3.1ghz)

    Wow! don't wish nothing on us.. :p

    @CP
    The 965 is it the 125 watt or 140 watt. Sorry for the five hundred questions.. just trying to take my mind off this sad day.. 125w right?

    Edit: Over looked you said it was a c3.. So, 125w that's kickass. I seen someone get it to 7040MHz.
