wow, i can't believe anyone actually bought these CPUs

i'm with OldOfEvil on this, ditch the FX-74, just like AMD ditched it faster then it released it.

back the video cards, 2xgtx280 if you are going to keep that rig.

$1,600 bucks for a CPU? you must be crazy, especially now.

in about 2-4 months Nehalem will be out, if you really can spend that much on CPU wait for Nehalem.

LOL especially considering the fact that a Q6600 can be had for $180.00 and very easily be clocked to 3.4+ghz.

Or for a bit more, get the Q9450 with 12mb cache and 1333 fsb for like $300.

This is an excellent deal. You can get 3.4ghz on air, sometimes requiring a tiny bump in voltage depending on the individual processor (I run mine @ 3.1, stock voltage). If you apply good thermal paste you might even be able to achieve this with the stock fan.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115044 - This is a Socket 771 meant for the SkullTrail system. If you want to go all-up-ons for a processor you'll want something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...051&Tpk=QX9770

But as the others have said I would go with a Q6600 for now. Nehalem is just around the corner take those extra Benjies you save and hold off for a Bloomfield wtfpwnage machine if you really want.

Here's hoping with the destruction of your current board/procs they will finally be the last of the Quad Father's to fall.
