Im getting ready to send my 750i FTW in for Evga's step up program.And im also stepping up one of my 8800GTS 512mb's for a 260GTX .I know my 2 GTS are faster in games than one 260GTX is but then im gonna get a second one very soon afterwards and maybe even a third since im stepping up to the 780i also(ill need a better psu with the third).I hope the 780i is better than my my 750iFTW.On the 750i my video cards run really hot as does my sound card because of the way the pci-e slots are with the sound card right between them.And it just barely fits.I was gonna just get a new pci-e Sound blaster but i really like my X-FI Extreme Gamer and i dont really think ill benfit much from updating it to the new X-FI Titianium.But anyway back to my 750i.The other problem is i cant watch videos because after a few minutes my video corrupts really bad which is a known issue with the 750i FTW.And since i watch a lot of videos this board is making me very mad.Evga even put out a new bios to help this issue but it didnt help mine at all.So the 750i FTW has got to go..lol So who else stepping up to the 260/280GTX?

Oh yeah i just bought the Swiftech H20 220 compact for my Q6600.And man this thing cools great 29c to 31c across the cores at idle and 49 to 50c loaded on prime at 3.4ghz and1.35v.Plus it fits in my CM690 like it was made for it.Ill post some pic's this weekend.I might even add my BIP 120.1 to the loop this weekend for even better temps.Dont let the 3/8 tubing fool you and the cheap price
