Well, it's the i7 965, for starters. The mobo is the ASUS P6T Deluxe with the palm thingie. Right now, I have two GTX 280s in the list as well, $410 each. It comes out to around $2190 for that stuff.

I'll tell you the rest of the specs once I find a replacement PSU, lol. Then I'll explain why I'm getting what I'm getting.

ya no lie.. all of them have the same oc potential....

unless you're getting extreme cooling (meaning tec cooling or a chilled loop.. or even up to a phase unit) then its pointless to get the 965

I know it can, but...I dunno, I'm weird. I guess I'm with my computer as some people are with their cars? I like to "trick them out". Maybe it's silly, but I really like the idea of being able to mess around with such serious parts for benchmarking/tweaking/etc purposes. While I could OC the 920 to match the 965, OC'ing the 965 would be so much more fun.

Then again, this is why they call it a "dream machine". Lol.

I've heard nothing but good things about that cooling system...but of course, I haven't heard anything about it being tested out on the i7 since it's over a year old...

It's too bad, I really like that case, lol.

I've seen someone overclock a 965 to 3.6ghz on air cooling, but the temps hit around 90C under full load.

Any suggestions for a water cooling solution? My wish list is ever updating, lol.

I get most of my reviews from guru3d.com...they're normally spot on about hardware stuff.
