    Gods above, that is some sexy hardware...
    "A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity."
    - Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), American social activist and First Lady of the United States

    It's pretty much a new rig so I haven't gamed nor futuremarked it yet .. just DVD watching ... It does heat-up pretty good ... 115C on the CPU/Southbridge and up to 41C on the video cards.

    Now, I attribute a good amount of heat to the CPU ... a Sandy Bridge 1156 that appears to be an unlocked engineering sample ... the I5-750 is only rated at 2.66 ghz to 3.2ghz on max-turbo ... this particular CPU clocks at 3.84 straight out of the box ... and of course the Sandy Bridge mobo that's one of those odd boards designed for and explicitly with extreme profiles (here, only the XMP Profile 1 is used) ... one of the perks of being an Intel Channel Partner and getting samples to work with ..
