Sweet! So nice and shiny!! Heck, I don't even see a fingerprint anywhere. Martha Stewart would certainly be proud, I know I would be. WoW! That's a great new system, LV.

It's actually built in a case that is several years old..... I have two Lin-Li PC75B cases, since there was no interest when I tried to sell it I used it for this build. I bought a new top from FrozenCPU that was pre-drilled for three 120mm fans and mounted the 360mm rad under the new top. Worked out just as planned!!

Looks good LV. I'm planning my new build to coincide with the release of win7. I7 920 of course, but am undecided on mobo. EVGA is a contender, but considering biostar or msi. I'm looking forward to your experience with the EVGA.

If you base it solely on customer service..... eVGA wins hands down. Their customer service was top notch, they crossed shipped a replacement board without charging me and gave me 14 days to send the old one back before they sent the thugs after me.....LOL. Never a whimper or whine from them. Now the damaged radiator is another story, PerformancePC's is trying their best to make life difficult. They said I have to send the rad back to DangerDen because thats where they get them from....... I told them I really don't give a rat's ass where you get your stuff, I bought it from you and you WILL take care of it or your resellerratings.com score will decrease dramatically hysterical.gif

The DO stepping is leaps and bounds beyond the C0 stepping as far as voltages needed at higher clocks. Here is 4.0ghz..... how's that voltage?? BIOS was set at 200x20, but for some reason it reports 199.5 x 200 when loaded to windows......

Ditto on the customer svc. I just returned a dead evga 9500gt vid card. It was a 9 or 10 day turnaround. Excellent. After seeing your good ocing, the evga mobo is at the top of my list.

Got my refund a couple days ago, and they told me to keep the defective radiator. Maybe I should have it repaired???
