Looks good, exept that mobo won't run past DDR800. I would stick with the mobo and just get some DDR800 instead of the 1066.

I take it you're sticking with the GTX?

I just had a quick look at the mobo specs and it said 667/800. Saying that I had my DDR800 RAM at 1081 on my P5K.

lame. I just realized there is a "Big Typhoon" and a "Big Typhoon VX". Of course I ordered the regular dumb one. Blast you newegg.

How lame is this HSF I ordered? Worth sending back?

Default Re: Finally

same cooler but maybe with a faster fan judging by the cfm rating listed??

VX has clip for amd's so no different for a 775.

The VP on the other hand looks interesting with the extra fan hinge doohikey

Yep. 900 Cable management sux. There is a youtube video where he did a pretty awsome job, anyone can do it at home as well to get it under control. The case rocks otheriwse.

GL with the 8400 btw....i gave up after awhile because it is no where in australia -.-...e6850 was the other option, and prices on the 8400/8xxx sky rocketed as well.

I recently got a similar setup (same cpu and mobo) except I made the mistake of ordering an AC Freezer Pro. I guess I didn't do enough reading up on the motherboard, because there is one minor issue. The northbridge heatsink is so large and so close to the cpu socket that it interferes with some large heatsinks, the Freezer Pro is one of these. Since I ordered the OEM e8400, the box cooler wasn't an option.

I made it work. Had to bend some of the fins on the cpu cooler to make it fit and the fan isn't actually blowing over all the fins (like, two are missing it maybe). I'm pretty sure its effecting temps. At 3.6 (9x400 1.26v) it idles at around 38c and was sitting at 57c after 12 hours of Orthos. Safe or should I back off till I find a cpu cooler that actually fits? >.>
