Nice build mate, it looks very nice. Once you clean up those wires a bit it will look awesome.

Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811233003

$140. Yeah, it looks much better than I thought it did. That black finish is awesome, and the blue is great too.

It is a good case, I just built a similar system this weekend . The board has the pins for the jumper, but the instructions say (yeah, yeah I read the instructions), that the jumper is not included to prevent abuse of the board.

I'm eager to know if you went through the stability tests successfully. Also, what are your temps at 2.66Ghz?? What were the temps at stock? My build is similar but I haven't had the time to mess around with serious OC.
