the 8pin with the 8pin extension is long enough to be hidden behind the mobo tray, and the 24pin shouldnt be too much of a problem. I already have the psu

I have the 500w of the same flavor. I decided to make it a testing PSU and emergency device in the event of an issue. We get some pretty big lightning strikes out here and you never know with electronics and old buildings.

In fact we had a power cutout that was so bad a month and a half ago that the power cut out came back on too quickly for my system to be fully shut down and then it went right back out within a 5 second span. The PSU survived but when you get into a performance rig you won't want to take any chances.

Trust me you won't notice the difference in from the 5830 to the 5770. lol

But if you're good with it you're good with it.

I agree with Ceadderman on the 5830. It goes for ~$240 but you don't get any noticable performance from it over a 5770. If you can afford another $50, you can get a 5850, then you will see a nice performance increase.

Slow day at work so I decided to read through every page in this thread and am now officially up to date. I got my replacement CH4 board coming in this afternoon and will be taking the afternoon off to go home and test it out. I had a couple questions for you guys.

1.) How much OC could I safely achieve on stock cooling?

2.) I notice most of you are sticking with just two sticks of RAM instead of 4. Is that for performance reasons?

3.) Those that reapplied TIM on the SB and NB how much did you use? Can you describe the size of the bead you placed on each?

I'm going to attempt the NB fix tonight and I'll try to upload some pics.

Squirrel i need a card that wont cost me to much to crossfire, but will allow me to fold and play games. I will have the extra performance of the 5830 as headway for folding while i play games. Plus the 5830 im getting is only 220$ with a free MW2.

Sucks that theres no IDE port, now I have to get drivers from another computer since I'm still running on an old IDE writemaster.
I picked up an IDE to sata interface for about £4gbp, it was realy slimline and looks ok, pm me if you want info?
