Well... its not going so good. Monarch botched my order and its about a week out still... The coolers are really screwed...someone is lying, it was "supposedly" delivered to the leasing office at my complex BUT they say they signed for no packages :swearing: Don't knwo what I'm going to do yet but UPS system says she signed for it so she has til tomorrow to come up with it. That will mean I have to file a claim and there is no telling how long that is going to take.... (anyone who has dealt with newegg's claim service please post your knowledge) But on a good note the package from crazy pc arrived with my 92mm fan and the grill for the case mod <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br><a href="http://www.overclock.net/attachment.php?s=5f012238fa36186cbb85825ea8d4fba8&attachmentid=34241" target="_blank" title="">Attachment 34241</a><br><br>
Keeping fingers crossed on the cpu and maybe the other package turning up<br><br>

Ill have to get with you guys bout that whenever Monarch finally decides to get more chips in stock....still hasnt shipped and order was placed 10-28 Im so pist...all they have done in return for botching order in first place was express overnight...but that still doesnt help since CS said they are still in customs....blah blah blah....This worries me about the stepping i may get too with this late a shipment could the best i can hope for is a 0617??? I hope I dont get one of the "others" <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" /> Anyways Im debating the installation of card cooler whether i would get better results straddling card or on top and if on top will it fit next to the BT...still have the case mod to do also and Ive decided to take extra drive bay and move fan controls there.... I want my chip soooooooooooo bad lol They look so pretty in the package but I want that stuff in my rig now LMAO.... anyways thats my rant for the day about this upgrade <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />

Well I got tired of waiting for my chip and have installed the BT.... it is friggin amazing!!!! At full load the cpu is only 3*c over the ambient air temp in room...at idle 5*c less than ambient....Also I had more clearance than I thought I would have and only had to do a minor case mod so I could reinstall case side..basically the removal of the direct cpu port tube that was on case side. I am VERY VERY happy with the performance of this cooler and can't wait to see how it does with the Opty...will post pics this afternoon <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>

Heres the pic of BT installed and runn in shwweeett!!!! As soon as I get the 7900 replaced and get the other cooler and fan Ill get some night pics up <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><a href="http://www.overclock.net/attachment.php?s=f0ff622456a527c34b14aeab359ee59d&attachmentid=35489" target="_blank" title="">Attachment 35489</a><br><br>
The fan is a 3LED Thermaltake 120mm fan that on max puts out 97cfm...I havent tried turning down the fan since it isnt that much louder than it was before. I may just to see if lower cfm's affect temp and how much it takes to begin losing performance.This thing cools this chip like I never thought it could lol The only complaint Id say I have was that the top plate screw is impossible to get to tighten it up....Is there any way using the hardware that came tihe it to use the spin nuts to tighten????...I had to use the bit from my screwgun because I couldnt get a screwdriver in.<br><br><br>
