Taking forever for my 6128s :(
I bought a pair of 6128s through ebay about a week ago and I checked the track s latest upday and Your item departed our AUSTIN, TX 78710 sort facility on November 16, 2011.
I live on the west coast and sure wished they would get here lol I am wondering how much longer will I have to wait.
I guess all I need is cpu heatsinks I am still not sure where and how I am going to set this up I have no case and am debating on just butchering an old case that was used for a Pentium and mounting the board on it with a fan or two blowing on it open air. if I had the room I would just mount the whole system on a piece of plywood the mount the plywood on a wall. I was going to do that with a firewall I am in the process of building but I am nopt sure if I can get a decent wifi card to work.

in the mean time not knowing when my cpus will arrive I am wondering if it would be worth shutting down my Q6600 folder and replacing it with a AMD 955be but I am not sure of how much more PPDs I would get if any.

Ive got a 965BE coming from TX that left Texas on the 10th, still not here yet. Two weeks earlier I had a Mobo and 2600k leave texas Monday and was at my door Friday. No rhyme or reason it seems. Both shipped USPS Priority Air.

Do you mind sharing how much you got the 6128's for? Im starting to keep an eye out myself.

Great price in the 6128's, I gotta keep my eyes open I want to set up a 2p or 4p box in the next couple months.

I nearly bit on a 6282 I saw on ebay for 750, but the seller only had a rating of 2 and didnt list shipping to Canada. Then there's the problem of finding 3 more of them at a decent price. And.... there were rumours of the chips not meeting their expectations and/or sucking a lot more juice.

Hey 4DoorGTZ what kind of case are you using for KingQuad I can't tell looking at your pics
