Out for Delivery!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
So I'm sitting here with nothing to do all day but wait for UPS to bring me my new 750i FTW mobo and Duo E8400 processor....

Just a heads-up, once it gets here I'm gonna be spamming this thread from my laptop probably with different questions while I install - OC - etc.... The rep+ will flow like wine!

I've overclocked before and read the 750i threads and such and such, but having actual people answering specific questions always helps so much more. Thanks in advance.

Still waiting Aaaahh!!! It's 2:30, so any time now I should be getting that knock at the door (hopefully).

So while I was waiting, I stumbled on down to Fry's and got my air cooling unit

http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...530&lid=627063

Whatcha guys think? I did some research, but I'll be honest, I mainly bought it to match my case's blue LED's and cause it looks sexxy.

Thats a real smart looking cooler, it will look very nice if you have a side windows in your case... Temps wise its not the best but its not the worst neither, i found this review:

http://www.frostytech.com/articlevie...id=2124&page=5

It puts your Arctic Square slightly behind my Scythe Mine so you should beable to get some decient overclock speeds with your quad, at 3.4GHz and 1.43V(BIOS) my load temps are 63 degrees at the minute (summer temps) in quite a hot room.
