haha, thanks Spongeboy, but that would be wayyy to much hassle =[ not had my PC for ages now... it took them 8 days to just check it :/

They're now offering me a Asus P5Q-E // a DFI Lanparty DK P45-T2RS Plus are these any good and which ones the best?? I seriously only wanted a Gigabyte, but if thats all they're going to offer, I might as well take it.

Thanks guys, I went for the Asus as it seemed to have better performance and features, and the website wasn't engrish unlike DFI's, haha.

&& Conspiracy you should get one of the HAF cases, the fans are epicly quiet and its worth the amount of time it will take you to move your components over ;D

Oh and seems like Scan's 'upmost urgency' delivery takes 4 days... they sent it out today, so it could have been here by tomorow... but I had to deal with 3 people in their tech support so seems they were sending conflicting messages ¬_¬ :/

^ The cable on the left that goes to the top of the mobo wont go behind the mobo and through the hole to plug in which means it has to stay there :/

My best mate just bought this case and i had so much fun playing around with it. We put a third 200mm fan on the case window and a couple of red cathoes.

Seeing the red light glow through the entire mesh case looked wicked!!

Its up and working perfectly at the moment, All I have left to do is to make some homemade dust filters

Ive been running techPowerUp!'s Realtemp all day and my cpu tempreture @ 10% load is roughly 35-38 degrees celsius and about 40-46 when gaming / video encoding/decoding.

All in all, Im love it, its a huge boost from what Im used to, and ill be learning how to OC my CPU (as i had a dell before) soon and should be able to get it to a stable 3.0GHz hopefully Ive just got to get to terms with all this vcore mumbojumbo etc

Also, Just a quick question: Ive got GRID and the graphics settings are on ultra but the car is really pixelated and looks horrible... is this normal? it happens on both my PC (HD 4890) and my brothers (basically the same PC except hes got a HD 4830)... Im so confuzed & a quick google search didnt bring anything up :/

Yeah Deano, i love it ;D but I bought a Arctic Freeze 7 Pro and thats what made me bend one of the pins in my gigabyte mobo (cleaning thermal paste off the pins), so I havent got a stock cooler anymore I will update the photos soon

The Arctic Freezer 7 Pro REALLY is a tight fit on the P5Q-E though, you have to bend parts of the mobos heatsink out of the way and then bend them back ¬_¬ (Well you dont do it delibrately, the heatsink bends them when your putting it in)

alssoooo, I voted yes

Dan

Edit

woot... I just found out that this Asus board doesnt get as many points in 3dmark06... not to mention the processor speed bug... x9 should be 2400MHz but its 2404MHz :/

Asus Score: http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=11707740 13091 3DMarks
Gigabyte Score: http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=11536638 13619 3DMarks
