This is nice to see. I'm also running the n520 as well and am seriously considering going to the Dark Knight.

Not bad, but as people keep saying,...

Yeah, the change in temps between cores should be no more than 3-5C...

Can you tighten it? I don't have an Ultra 120 so I don't know how...

Yeah, even though the Q9450 looks nice, I wasn't paying attention to multi on it. It's nice to know that almost a year later, the decision I made is still the best one I could have made. Now I'm just looking to pick up a TRUE and push my CPU to 3.6GHz This is the first decision I've made in...

It seems that a lot of these stores border the line between playing the Supply & Demand game and actual price gouging. Hopefully the price drops a bit but who knows... Either...

Huge limitations in what you can and cant do... The iphone can be had for like 400 bucks at the att store, but my contract just expired, and im...
