lol I wish it worked that way, but considering they are sold out and they wont have another shipment in before the weekend, I doubt I would be able to swap it out before the return period is up.

Question for ya guru... The second 2600k your getting, is it from the same store? Just wondering what the chances are that you get a different batch than the one you have..

Well I drove around for an hour and half, 4 stores trying to get a kill a watt, no dice. Guess I'll be ordering one on the egg instead, so ppd/watt figures won't be in for a while from me.

Hopefully, tommarro night mine should come in and be up and running. I will add my ppd numbers to the database. It will be fun to dunk this bad boy in water although it seems it might not be needed lol

Guru you know you can use Lynfield brackets for Sandy Bridge.
If you want to watercool

Thus 1156 cooling works on 1155

I will need to investigate my choices now...

Well I got it tonight, messed with it for a few hours, and the conclusion is that the board is bad =X

From the beginning it would never boot twice in a row even at default settings. So it shall go back, and I will get the same board as digi. Although I did love the colors of the giga.

yeah the asus boards seem to be the best right now. I'm rocking the Evo on 1 i7 build and i like it a lot more than the MSI board I just got.

Also, I'm getting 15297.4 ppd on P6701 work units @ 4ghz. on a 6834 pointer. it seems to be chugging along nicely.
