Got the gear yesterday, and was planning on installing it on the weekend……. this plan failed i got excited and a little impatient and went ahead and dismantled the Q8200 system and proceeded to install the whole i7 with customer coolers and reseated CPU blocks. The GPUS are now sitting a little closer but i do need to reveiw the placement of the pipes, may need some L junction pipes soon and some thicker piping. plus i do wanna do a complete spray black on the inside of the case….. or i may wanna just get a new case all together and work it over. Either way so far without any OC its performing as expected. Gonna acctually get to start the long process of Stabilization this weekend i hope.
Sorry peoples the forums are down for the moment , they will be back up in about 24hrs i hope.
Have some interesting things to add to them when they come back,
– Smoothwall (2.0) heheheh
– Core i7 Upgrade Log
