Under water, of course.

This just may be the board.
Copycat! Seriously though, another multi-socket system around here would be nice!

@Napier: Nice looking build so far! Keep us posted!

Nice rig man, that's going to pump out some serious power...Is this rig suited for gaming or calculations (e.g. folding) ? Or is the dual quad over killer for gaming?

It will mainly be used for CAD and rendering, with some calculation work. I dont think it would be ideal for gaming having a quadro card in it, but im sure it would still work. I cant wait to start it up for the first time.
