Update: Got shipping # from Purolator (FINALLY FFS!!!!) and CPU/DVD-RW should be here either later today, or bright-n-early tomorrow! YAY
This being said, this thread will soon be updated with new pictures, and the system's first boot! Than after that I'll also be logging my O/C progress.

So the CPU and DVD-RW came in... don't have pics yet... but I shall soon. Did I mention it's now running @ 3.2Ghz (23C idle, 29-30C loaded)
No iNet atm. Using an EVGA nVidia GeForce 7300 GS atm
Cable management has not been done, as per there is a few things I need to work out prior to doing so... so there's still lots of work to do, and overclocking. However I did get WinXP 64Bit running nice n easy. Will post pics ASAP. (this weekend sometime)

UPDATE: So I cannot find my camera
However I have some info incase anyone wants to see. This is 100% stable O/C with 44C load temps.

CPU-Z Validation AMD Phenom II X4 955 B.E. @ 3.6Ghz

Now here's the odd part. Motherboard takes Dual Channel RAM, however I'm not getting my RAM in dual channel setup... it's running in single channel... Used slots 1/3 (or 0/2 if you prefer) and still nothing... quite odd IMO. Any ideas?

Will add more pics once I get the chance.
