Well as long as your happy.

So what are the performance of the Quadfire?

On my X-38 they put me in #3 position in OCN's top 30.

The Xeons on the 5400 are not putting me in the ranking. I would need 4ghz. They run at 2.5 stock..so it's a remote possibility.

The QX9775 may drop in price...I am watching for a break.

People who come in here and say you are crazy for doing this because it costs so much are just e-peen green with envy. Seriously people. CD is not a noob. Believing that X38 = X48 is silly. Or how about, P35 vs X38, I mean unless you really HAD to have that extra full x16 lane which...wait, nope single card. We don't spend money just to spend money, we upgrade and advance along with the technology provided to us. CD has done research, as have we all.

And your logic of "Just telling you that it will be slaughtered by the next generation CPU's" is silly, because you have no proof of that because the next generation isn't here yet. There is no guarantee whatsoever that nehalem will be a good overclocker, in fact, it is quite possible that the IMC and native quad design may limit overclock as it has done on AMD's Phenom processors.

X48 is just the next logical progression. Don't get whiny because you bought the x38 and intel came out with another chipset so soon after.

Waiting for "what is coming" gets you nowhere, because there is always something new on the horizon. Some people's chosen upgrade path is faster than others. I'm jumping x38 and going straight to x48, and I will probably ride that out through at least the first wave of nehalem processors, and will upgrade during the second wave. CD on the other hand will probably upgrade far faster, and why shouldn't he? If he wants it, and he can pay for it with his own hard owned money, and he wants to share that with the community at large here at OCN, then I encourage him to do so. Simply waiting around for the next best thing leaves you waiting forever.

And my P35 will run at 1800FSB. My point is, to have official support at 1600FSB, the X48 chips will have more overhead to overclock.

Back on topic here,

CD, I still want to go back to the vid card plumbing, what kind of temps are you seeing on the cards? It just looks like there must be a better flowing way to tie those together.

Why are you even having this back and forth? it's a buyers market and if CD wants to splash out on a skulltrail for 8 cores and quadfire then more power to him, it's early adopters that pave the way for the rest of us and help identify all things, good and bad about new platforms and help the general consumer make a decision on which direction to take their own rig.
