Bro, you were so correct about those rubbers. What a PIA!!! I destroyed one, but had extras. Great function, horrible form. Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the help guys! .

Seriously, I'm gonna get some pictures up, I have just been busy enjoying the awesome that I have created. Sure, it's not one in a million on this forum, but hot damn if this thing ain't quick.

Still rockin' the 4.4 Ghz. I reloaded the OS on my old Solo II build, e8400 and got her up to 3.8 Ghz on a Zalman 9500at. Couldn't go much further, almost wish I had better cooling; I know that chip can hit 4.0 Ghz+!

I definitely want to do 560 SLI. I would go for the 580 single, but sadly, the EVGA trade-up opp. will be expired by the time I could afford it. I wish the PCIe spacing on this board was a little different, as I'd love to keep my 250 in there for Physx. Batman AA and Metro 2033 put it to good use .

This IPS monitor is also great. I haven't needed to use the "thru" mode. I haven't had any ghosting issues.

So, I will be getting that second 560, some kind of mechanical keyboard (looking for something with brown's in it), 2TB WD Green for the X-Dock for backups, and some kind of "gamer" mouse.

How well do those 'surround' sound headphones work? I am looking at the G930.

Thanks and
