My Latest Build

Here´s the last build I put together, over 2.5 months old as of today. I´m a bit late presenting it here, but better late than never eh...

Case - Coolermaster Stacker 831

Motherboard - Asus Rampage Formula

Processor - Yorkfield Q9450

CPU Cooler - Thermaltake Big Typhoon 120 VX

Memory - 4GB Crucial Ballistix 800MHz DDR2

Graphics Card - Evga 8800GTS 512MB

Sound Card - Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer PCI

Hard Drives - 2 X 500GB and 2 X 1TB Samsung Spinpoint

Power Supply - Corsair TX750W

Operating Systems - Ubuntu, Windows XP Pro and Vista Ultimate

I decided to invert the motherboard tray so I could see into it while i use it. Where I currently keep the box warrants me to have it on my left. I'm pretty sure the case wasn't designed to be used like this though, but I had to invert it just to be able to see all those lights.

I do very much like the red neon blending in with the CPU-fan, looks cool.

However, i'm not a fan of the X-Fi-series, and since you also run linux (ubuntu), you probably know why.

Indeed I do. Solid sound card for Windows, the Linux supports leaves a lot to be desired though.

I'm getting about ~30C idle and about 45 - 50C under load with Prime95. The E6600 I was initially running before I got the Q9450 at 3.5GHz was hitting the 65C mark under the same circumstances.

Yeah the smaller fabrication process makes the chips better in about every way they can be.

I was thinking about having a Q9650 for my next build and wanted to OC it. Think the Zalman would be enough? If i dont have to watercool then thats better cause id rather not.
