    BenQ XL2420TE 24" 144hz - $279.99 at Newegg

    I've been watching this monitor for the last week. I almost bought it when newegg had 5% off on their mobile site but charged $8 shipping, no SR on mobile site. I was pleased to see the $20 off coupon this morning prior to going to work, plus SR 2nd shipping!

    Still ethustiastic about SB ?

    I enjoy my SB system and have no regrets. I use it for apps, gaming and folding. I enjoy the performance & lower power consumption. If you were to use it for word processing and web surfing then it may be a overkill.

    Gigabyte G1-Killer line (first images)

    Good looking board (assassin). I'm not sure about the 5 LED lights. I'd have to see it in a complete build.

    Looking for new case

    The v2120 is a very nice case. I think you can't really go wrong with a Lian-Li case.

    Just got an e-mail from Microcenter in regards to the P67 chipset.

    A similar email was sent out to Newegg customer. In their letter they stated they would extend the return policy. I'm sure MC would also do the same but it's probably best not to assume. It could make an ass-u-me. :)

    Intel Chipset Design Error!!!

    You need to come back to reality. Cars with peoples lives in them are no comparison to a hard drive in a pc. :rolleyes: That's like me saying you're the dude that was in the news saying his gas pedal was stuck and can't stop his prius, all the while his foot had it mashed to the floor. :D Stop...

    Sabertooth P67 - Anyone buying?

    I would've loved to have the Sabertooth. To bad it wasn't available at release. I would have bought it vs the Pro. If I ever did a military type theme build, this would be the board I would choose.

    Asus P8P67 Anybody 'NOT' Having Problems with this Board ?

    I haven't had any issues with my board at all. I had the extra time to boot because of the drive controllers but it wasn't an issue but more preference for a faster boot time. My board has been working well since release. (2600k oc'd 4.5GHz 24/7)

    MSI GD65 question

    If I have a cpu cooler fan blocking a slot, I install the memory first and then the fan. I adjust the fan height clearance to clear the back of the memory chip. So right now, I have to take the fan off my cpu cooler in order to remove the memory chip in slot one.

    2600k Batch?

    I agree it's a mixed bag with SB. I haven't seen any correlation in batches that point toward a "golden batch" like the 920's.

    Another nice thing about upgrading to SB...

    As a 24/7 folder, I'm glad I was able to go to SB setup without having to fork out another $150-200 for new psu. Transplanted my Seasonic x650 from old to new build.

    AsRock x58 Xtreme died

    I use two of these boards and no issues thus far. I'm not sure how well their support is. Sabertooth is a nice quality board. I've good luck with EVGA boards in the x58 series as well. Plenty of nice choices in the FS/FT section.
