Beautiful motherboard. Not on the market yet though. I wonder what the price would be. *Drool*

On a different subject. I am looking for the top quality case fans.

Although there must be tons and tons of threads/posts/stickies about this subject in the Air Cooling section, I would like to hear the opinions of the Scouts.

Basically, I want to find the best 140mm & 120mm case fans money can buy. High RPM with low low DBA. To start off, I am looking at Noctua fans. So, whats the word guys?

Yeah, someone always beats me to the news. The new motherboard is $599- http://www.evga.com/products/moreinf...270-WS-W555-A1
They don't have any yet and I can't wait to see if the PSU is 80+ silver or maybe gold. They've never done PSU's before so we'll see.

Oh and the guys at Evga pointed out, it's a double Xeon processor, not an i-7, i-9 or any like those that are consumer procs, instead they're server procs so in addition to $599- for the board you also have to pay for 2 procs also around $599- for the 3.06Ghz bloomfield edition. Yes it would be an awesome folding machine! Sure wish I could afford a set-up like that, put it in the back room, check once a day or so & let it solve sciences mysteries.

I saw it this morning in the evga newsletter
I cannot even ponder on the crunching power that board could produce In my countrys curceny, a setup using the full potential of that board would cost R100,000 around about. That almost 10 times what my system cost me and twice what my cars cost me

Wheeew it's been a long time since I've been here. Sorry, I've been having fun gaming on my new rig

I've decided to give "S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl" another go, seeing as it's great apocalyptic atmosphere grabbed me the first time, but my old PC couldn't handle it very well.

I'd advise all you people who haven't played that game, to grab it for a few bucks. Then install this mod:

Stalker Complete 2009

It's a complete visual re-do of the game and makes it ALOT cooler then it already was.

I've also been playing "Company of Heroes" again because it's still a kick ass RTS game

Ok, for your bios problem, go into the bios, then Advanced Bios Features, then at the bottom of the list is Full Screen Logo Show, disable the stupid thing, that saves 10-15 seconds. Then, use power option of POS (1), you can't sleep it or hybernate it but it saves another 5 seconds. Then, in Windows go into your Advanced System Properties and move the swap file from the SSD to your secondary drive, if you have more than one, put a swap file on all the drives but the SSD (up to 10 seconds). Then, go into the Control Panel and under Folder Options de-select the one that says Hide System Files, then go into your SSD and find Hyberfil.sys and Pagefil.sys and delete them. Then re-start your computer, it should be all of anywhere from 10 to 40 seconds faster from the time you press the button to the time it starts windows. You'll probably still end up with a Pagefil.sys on your SSD but it should be much smaller than your amount of RAM, mine is only 16k.
Let me know if it helped. Oh, you'll probably want to go back and hide the system files again so you don't delete something major.
Bit late reply from me, sorry I'll give your suggestions a try soon. Already managed to find the fullscreen image remove option which is great thanks for the tips. I hope they work and I don't break anything

Have you ordered the fan controller yet? I still love mine

Perhaps you didn't see this did you?
It's been used by the user nickshih and he got some "decent" scores at 3d mark Vantage, the multi card setup can be found in the later part of the post

Although I've seen the tutorial on how to make the false floor from other modders, I'm interested to know where you got your material. Also, what did you do to get the size cut to your specifications and how you did the 90 degree bend.

I think it looks good. I too prefer not to cover the PSU in case of creating too much suffocation of heat around it.

PS: I don't mind the V6 logo too much

Also maybe take a big piece of black heat shrink cut it down its length to open it up, wrap it around those cables that are showing through. Fasten it there with a black zip tie.
