Have to find a new setup, halp!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Sold my sig rig, the guy said it didn't work and sent it back. During shipping, a RAM chip fell off the video card (I'm assuming to the copper RAMsinks) I'm an idiot and didn't power up the motherboard right and pretty much melted a connector in the 8 pin slot (I feel like a newb..) So, I fail.

I'm looking for a new setup. An SLI board, running the Q6600. The 780i boards are quite pricey, and I know you guys have your opinions. I'm going to overclock again like a fool again - so let's hear it. What do you suggest for a good OC'ing SLI board?

evga 750i FTW....

It has proved to be quite the board...

see both OC guide and OC thred in sig....

PS: How did a mem fall off in shipping? Ive heard alot of things that happen in shipping, but thats a first.. I started actually packing paper inside the case to keep the insides from being jarred around.... Im just waiting for some idiot to not pay attention to my directions and powering it up before removing it...

I had copper RAMsinks on each memory chip - the chip is still attached to the heatsink when it fell off.
