You really shouldn't have done that because this is my final build and people who read this new merged post will read my old build and comment on that instead of the new build in page 3 or 4, wherever it is.

Can you just separate them?
I basically had 2 posts each for my old and new build.
They are totally unrelated.

They only have to read the end of the thread. That is, after all, where builds become updated.

Haven't you heard? AMD's got a newer processor architecture than K8.

don't bother with an aftermarket cooler. You can take the proc up to 3.0~3.2 on stock cooling, and the stock cooling is actually quite quiet.
