Roger. That is a Go. I repeat, a Go. Clearance from Control Tower Tango Alpha Monkey.

Why do you have two burners?

Copy that Go, control!

The two burners just represent whatever I am going to put there. Power-wise, they are important placekeepers.

There are some sites that guarantee you get a g0 quad.

The G0 stepping is a CPU revision of the Intel Core 2's. It runs on less power, thus producing less heat and can achieve higher overclocks. I think Newegg still has the B3's.

For all the ppl who keep asking what G0 stepping is

hey nice build, if you want to do good wire management then you may need to mod the mobo tray in the 900

Is that a fact? I read as many reviews as I could handle, no mention of my mobo with that case, but it was stated a couple times that the tuniq tower would fit, which I suppose was my real concern. Now I'm a bit concerned that the mobo won't fit, though. How can I tell without having it in hand?



Btw, for the person who asked, ClubIT currently is guaranteeing the best prices for G0 stepping

Will my case be able to fit that mobo? The board seemed relatively small, actually. Don't yet have the case.


I guess my final question is about the power supply. Is that power supply beefy enough?
