I ordered the Classified from Newegg

The Classified has (2) 8-pin mobo connectors for extra power if needed. So I went ahead and ordered an adapter so that I'll have (2) connectors to plug into it.

And I decided to try out the new Tuniq TX-3 Thermal Paste. I must have at least a dozen different pastes now

Well until I get familiar with the new mobo I'll be using my True Copper again. And my Main Goal here was taking the SuperPi Crown back I'm not saying I won't run the Phase again, but I'll probably wait until the timings right, maybe when the new Nvidia 300's come out I'll hook it up again for some Futuremark runs

Also, I found out the i7 920 disables Turbo mode when the cpu speed hits 5GHz so I'll have to run it at 20x250 in order to hit 5GHz.

My True Copper was pretty dirty so I'm soaking it in Orange Juice, I did add more juice so it's totally submerged



And I had some free time so I went ahead and lapped my cpu

Exactly

Lime, Lemon, Tomato Juice. Anything with a lot of acid works. Orange Juice is just pretty cheap here in Florida Ketchup works really well with waterblocks.
