I'll have to look around a little more... Right now I'm sticking with the i7 and the ASUS motherboard I have now. I'm cutting my budget close right now, too. We'll see. I'll read up a little more on the Xeon processor this weekend and order some time next week.

If your shopping for a case just don't think anymore and get the 800D. I have it and it is easily the best case i have owned.

I like it.. but it's a lot of money.. But I'm considering it again because I saw this case and really liked it:

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Cosmos Pure Black Aluminum / SGCC ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases
It's $249.99 + tax.. and I loooove how it looks.. the 800D is just too plain
But the wire routing is so much better (looking) than anything I've ever seen...

I'll have it figured out by next week, I hope

I got the Megahalem with 2 of these for push/pull:

SilverStone FM123 120x120x25mm w/ Fan Controller - (FM123) - FrozenCPU.com

I haven't gotten it yet but I expect great results..

I'm at 4.1 right now (4.2 didn't like F@H) but I've been as high as 4.5ghz (not stable at all lol)

Getting 4.2 out of a W3520 will be a piece of cake... and the Megahalems don't need a lapping as bad as the TRUE's do... just get some good fans in push/pull and you are set
lol no....it will not be a peice of cake, getting a 4.2 stable, without lapping, and no water cooling will be rather difficult. You cant just add fans and hope things will be ok. BTW, you have water cooling, not a heatsink, so why would he want to know what you can get stable....

IF you are lucky you could get a good chip that you work on to get to around 4.0....4.2, 4.0 should not be too hard, but 4.2 will be. My temps are about mid 60's folding, high 50's gaming. A little hot, but i have it over volted right now beause i was trying to get folding working.

luke you do realize pretty much EVERY w3520 is binned with better silicone than retail 920's right? and they run cooler?

i said with a w3520 it will be cake, not a retail 920 chip.

all w3520's

found em all here:

And maybe I shouldn't have said it will be cake, but there is a very good chance that it will be easier to get higher OC's with the xeon over a retail 920.
