Yeah im his mate we go to the same school and he moans about that all the time lol.

He got ripped off BIG time he payed like $2000 for that system, but with a sparkle vanilla geforce 6600 and a really weak PSU that blew when he installed his GTS. And keep in mind that this was in the days of core 2 duo. ouch

and this is his case:

Buy Icebox Serious Black  from CCL - Online Retailer of the Year 2007

Probably not something I would go with but to each his own. I don't like lights on when I sleep so I have as few as possible.

i could probably help some if they are the same as mine.
BIOS showed 1.6825 or something close to that but in actuality was more like 1.62ish. For some reason when setting it the actual because of vdroop i believe is lower. I broke my multimeter so I can't check it out for sure. I'll let you know when I get back to my desktop tomorrow.

It helps being a spoilt brat :P but my parents are unlikely to ever spend that much on my pc again

considerring i was charged £250 for a 19" monitor with 250cd/m^2 and 500:1 and has serious problems with the backlight....and speakers which dont work properly any more :P

Then again, i dont get any pocket money whatsoever, so it cancels out...
