For the NB/SB, how did you guys apply the TIM? I just put a tiny dot and spread it.

Resulted in a 4ghz CPU OC while getting my NB to cold boot at 3ghz.

NICE!!!!! And A C2!!!!! Good Job There! I take it you like the 1.9BIOS!


Just a little tidbit piece of hardware that I thought was cool!

CLEAR CMOS from the outside of your case.

Wife said that she just wants me to happy with my decision, at the sacrifice of a bit higher price, so I went with the Silverstone Raven RV02B-W.


Nice and sleek and it will actually fit nicely on the left side if desk on a lower level side shelf and open a ton of room in my work area. It's not to expensive (Although it's about 4.5x the price of my other case) and also has a window on that side as well! It will work out nice. It's the first case that I purchased in about 4 years. My current has served me well and will sever my wife just as well.
