My System Specs


When are you planning to pull the pin on your purchase?

I've got a P5Q Pro waiting for me to drop my Q6600 onto it so with any luck I'll be able to compare its overclocking capabilities between the results I had with My DFI P965 and the Gigabyte DQ6 P35 board by the end of this weekend. If it OCs as well or better than the DQ6 I'd call it a decent OC board. I've also got a set of Mushkin Acents I can throw on to get some quick OC results as well, but I won't have enough time for fine tweaking the memory.

P5Q is excellent budget board its a little less refined than many of the other P5Q out there, but it will overclock most core 2 duo's just as well.

Read the HWC review here: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...rd-review.html

Noctua NF-P12 fans are desgined for areas where airflow is restricted it provides a higher static pressure that forces air more effectively through small areas, ideally you will want to put such a fan on your heatsink and where case fans have filters in front of them. The NF-S12 Fans are noctuas standard casefans ideal for areas that are free from obstruction or restricted airflow, ideal areas are exhaust fans and front intakes with no filters.

For a more complete understanding and a detailed description of Noctua's fans I encourage you to visit:

i was hoping to grab a new computer before mid november.
that all depends on whether I'm able to sell my current or not.

I also can't choose between a case. It's either CM 690 or Antec 900. If i could get a sweet case mod on the CM 690 i'd definitely go for that, but i don't know!
