That's a good deal. The HDD alone is worth around $90, so nice deal for sure.

Today i received my cpu and hdd.

I'm so happy with this CPU. It's running out of box on default voltage at 2.8Ghz. I have Zalman 9500LED with artic silver applied to CPU. It does wonders like always :) CPU idles at 32C in normal room temperature, and load is 44C. I had not that good temperatures with old CPU, but i changed the plastic bracket. I used the one from older AGP Gigabyte motherboard. Zalman fits better on that one, for some reason it's really tight...which causes i guess better contact betwen CPU and sink surface.

I'm going to try 12x250@3000Mhz, and that's my goal.

Right now is 14*200@2800Mhz. I have DDR500, and right now is doing 400Mhz 1T. I have plenty of room for overclocking...

Motherboard is Abit AN8-32x and PSU is OCZ GameXtreme 700W, SLI 7800GTX.

I didn't install 250Gb HDD...planned for my server.
