Well, I said there would be an update... that would change the name..

So I might as well take AMD out of the title lol, because well I'm back over with the blue team.





^ my initial reaction was something along the lines of this after re-installing W7:





No, the stock cooler is NOT going to stay lol. it will find its home, back in the box as soon as I get a part for its replacement :D
....
and just because i'm in a cheerful mood, a little teaser glamor shot:




So, I have a few more things coming and some better cable management ahead as well.... the sleeving needs to be completed, some metal work and lighting design...
more to come later. I promise ;)

Looks good m8. Why did you go over to intel? The 955BE is a very capable chip... can hit 4ghz on water if your lucky.

Bolded the key part.
I went with Intel because I felt it would provide better overclockability and ultimately better performance. I also wanted a challenge. I've never played with a 1156 or 1366 chipset, never mind thinking of overclocking. Its something different and new for me, and well worth the choice to invest.

That and coupled with the news released last week that AMD is no longer targeting the enthusiast, it meant to me, that AM3 will be a relic very soon, and with no real competitor to Intel's performance at the moment, it seemed like the most logical choice to go to a chipset that would yeild better performing chips later down the road.
