Well, it arrived, now I'm just waiting for the board (Asus P5E3 due in next week) and a TU120E or maybe an IFX-140, still undecided there.

Now I have to start saving for a Penryn Quad for when they are released, the Q6600 should be OK but i wanna Penryn.

LMAO

I'm sitting here looking at the box nashing my teeth in frustration at being at work, I want to go home now (12.45pm ) but I have a delivery I'm waiting for.

grrrrrrrr

Camera is at home too and my phone takes shit shots so no pics for another 3 hours or so.

EDIT: It has a thing called AI remote (an infra red remote and USB receiver) which I can't find anywhere in the documentation, overclocking from the other side of the room maybe??? lmao

EDIT2: found the documentation, you can run 9 programmes with the remote, iTunes winamp powerpoint etc, it's a media remote.

I can't wait to see how that IX-14 works for you. I agree phones take crap pictures I'd rather wait lol.

You could always go with the QX9650 since there already out.

I'm aiming for the Q6600's 45nm successor, the Q9450 or maybe the Q9550, we'll see how the budget (and the Mrs) are when they are released




That should tide me over until the 32nm Gesher I think unless the Nehalem tempts me, new tech is addictive for sure.
