Its here after a lot of hassel!!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Today at 8am the man from city link knocked on my door to deliever my bits.....he presented me a box filled with bubble wrap and my:

Big Typhoon Tt....oh my god it is huge!

Dfi SLI DR Expert

Gskill ZX 2gb

XFX EXtreme 7800gt (missing the bundled game COD 2)

Enermax 500w Liberty (has a loose bit of plastic inside)

But no cpu! where is my cpu! well i ordered the damn thing when it was in stock so i phoned....and they told me they had sold out! Well i asked if they were in stock when i ordered! damn liars! Scan.co.uk....

So there i was staring at the lovely boxes and knowing that i would have to wait at least a week to get my cpu. So i went on an Opty 148 hunt after much hassel just down the road there was a shop that had one lonely 148 that needed a home.....i jumped in the car and sped to the shop and handed over about a tenner more than scan charged me.. £189.95

And here its is sat on my desk.....but im at work now....and all the other bits at home....

The stepping is : CACJ3 0551TPBW, im hoping to get 2.6 out of it at least....fingers crossed!

Good luck. I'm sure you'll hit 2.6 if people are hitting 2.7 with an AMD64 Athlon 3200+. What are you going to do with the scan.co.uk one? Return it to that store you got yours at? Or will scan return your money?

Im not sure what to do with it.... i was going to cancel and they said they will refund my purchase. But i did think maybe hold on as i think its a new delivery from the factory as everyone in UK supplier wise is expcecting a new batch nextweek........so maybe the stepping might be better? it might overclock better or what have you.....so i may return the worst of the two.....and pay whatever restocking fee it is...

im not sure...

Yea scan.co.uk did that....really annoyed.....really really annoyed. First and likely last time i will use them bar the fact if they have a really super deal on. I usually use aria.co.uk and they are dead good cheap and i have always got next day delivery.

My dfi expert has lots of system fan connectors is there some software i can get that can control there speed via windows? according to say temperature or what have u....or do i neeed to buy one of those cool drive type things.
