same design as my 260 core 216
those would be (from what I can tell) the 65nm version, not 55nm

since you have such a big heat heat sink in the top, you may want to have all the fans but the top ones blowing in so you can equalize the pressure in the case, and make sure you have one blowing in over the HDDs. in general you want hot air going out the top of the case or as close to the top as possible.

Update! Finally!!
11-27-09


Oh my word.. well I got back from Chicago, and life swept me off my feet and flung me half way across the planet! :O
But I've made my way back, and got a few packages in the mail.

I now have a full running i7 System with these babies finally here.
I introduce my Asrock X58 Extreme and i7 920 D0 (B#: 3910A298):



Also finally picked out and ordered a disc drive, the Pioneer Slot Load DVR-TS08 DVD burner.
Also had to get a Slim Sata Power 7+6pin to SATA+Molex Cable:





Then I ordered a Psychopack Sleaving Kit from Murdermod, this should take care of my PSU:



Can't wait to get started:


Finally, heres a special sneak peak for you all. :D
The other night I decided to put together most of the parts of which I now have, and do a 'mock-up' of sorts, but this time it's going to be real life.
The photo speaks for itself, more to come but I just wanted to show you that it's finally becoming real! (ehh don't mind the apple sticker in the background)



More to come! Should get some more cuts done on the case this weekend.
Stay tuned. :-]
-Parker

I can't believe you've been after this for two years! You've got the patience of Job, my friend. I would have shot myself in the head out of frustration at least six or seven times by now. Assuming I lived through the first, that is. Good luck the rest of the way!
