Anyways, let's not confuse Dani
To make me seem less like an idiot:

The "non-Phenom CPU" comment was superfluous. Phenoms are not AM2s, nor are they K8s.
Cappy: Welcome aboard. I will add you and Vicarious (liability?) to the off-site roster
sometime in the nearish future.
GuardianOdin: You should not be too disappointed with the DK 790FXB-M2RSH. I have the DK 790FX-M2RS (same NB; SB600 southbridge instead of a SB750) and have but a few complaints.
alexgheseger: I have a GA-K8NSC-939. When it works, it is a nice motherboard; the first board I ever overclocked. However, unless your luck is better than mine, expect it to die a few times. I will testify that the socket is a little annoying to get the CPU into: the hardest Z
IF I ever had.
Six-eyes-Sid: As Joe said: you have until 01/31/2009 to submit entries.

It depends what TIM you are using. Arctic Silver 5 needs 200 hours. Other compounds (Shin Etsu for example) require none.
