cool, thanks. BTW where did you get it? I've noticed it on
www.overclockers.co.uk for 200 quid sterling.
They just started shipping it with the palomino core support which should I
guess make it potentially cooler and quicker.
I've seen guys going to horrendous levels to quieten it down eg
* replacing the fan in the psu with a quieter one
* replacing the case fans
* using an 800Mhz VIA cpu which needs only a passive heatsink.
Is it noisy? Does this sound worth it to you?
Thanks for the help,
