From your purchasing list, what happened to Aug 10, Sept 10, and Dec 10? :biggrin:
Well I can understand Dec 10, that one will be holding up the xmas tree.
Was Aug. and Sept. the compensation package for the better half?

New folding rig, hope to get it up and running for the weekend, my production as been horrible lately.

Intel Xeon X3440 - I love this thing, thermal performance is mind blowing, even for a server chip.
G.SKILL F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL Ripjaws - Gotta love the lowest RAM DOA rate in the industry, not to mention it's cheap
Gigabyte H55M USB3 - Love this little board, feels very high quality out of the box, but I gotta see if the lack of mosfet cooling limits overclocking
WD 1TB Black Sata 3 6gb/s - nifty drive, good balance of everything except seek noise...
Seasonic x-560 - great little PSU no complaints except for the price premium.

It won't be the lack of cooling that will hold you back, but likely the lack of strong power regulation. I had to move to a P55 in order to break 3.4GHz on my X3440. Hopefully you'll have better results.
