This could definately be something worth writing a good article about as it seems there aren't any good ones abound at the moment. A guide rather than an article persay.
Yup, orderd the C2D and P5B Friday night. The damn cards were held in customs - had to pay £60 VAT. Not impressed!
I have booked Tuesday off work as the two 7900's are definatley coming via Parcel Force. The E6600 and the P5B should be arriving too; I'll be less than impressed if they don't but i'm sure you are all used to lame couriers.
I need to find a flexible SLi bridge, I know it is not essential, however it improves performance (according to XS) I can only find a 4cm solid one, not being familiar with my new mobo I don't know if that will fit!
In all honesty, it seems simple, famous last words! The forceware worked in all cases i have read.
This will be my 1st 100% build. Should be interesting! I have my dell as backup in case i get stuck.
Results won't be fantastic at first - i can't OC until i get my water cooling sorted (which is going to be far
more difficult that I thought. I got the tape measure out, my case is tight inside, expecially if i'm going for sli in the loop. there is nowhere for the radiator) and i'll be down to 1gig of ram (splitting what i have across the two systems, i'll get another gig for the main system once i've sold the old).
My aim for Tues is to have the new build up and running with sli enabled. OC'in and fine tuning will have to come in the next week or two...
