board came in today.. i took some nice pictures.. will upload when i get home tonite

already popped the board in my case

instantly brought the multi up and got an instant 3.0ghz on stock voltage
for being a 90nm they are running rougly 35c in the bios

my sata HDD's are detected.. but i cannot boot from them

bios has alot of options.. so i've got alot of reading to do...


constant BSOD's w/ my current drivers.. works on safe mode... so im' going to have to do a nice reformat tonite as well

yes, i would say the big typhoons are roughly the same size as the tuniq tower... my case looks crammed inside.. wiring on the mobo is terrible... and dual chanell memory is something i still need to figure out

and my gtx just came in while i was at work

Sweetness, but I don't think you'll be topping dual HD3870's score with one 8800gtx, or are you going back to SLI'ing those babies

and are you going to moon the 6800gs again when it arrives! lol

i think i might take the amd score.. as he only had a dual core

i have my lovely 4 cores.. and w/ 3dmark being cpu intensive, i think i can handle it... i hope....

and i tried taking the 6800gs back from my friend.. and he's making me pay!!! that ******.... i'll try to steal that from him.. well.. buy.. lol

anywho, do you have a pci express mobo now?
