Wel basically after a lot of reading into Intel Duo Core Architechture, it became apparent that some of the output gets bottlenecked (apparently AMD
doesnt have this problem) and seeing as the motherboard comes with overclocking abilities, i figured, what the hell?
Ive come up with alternative cooling idea's, including a wicked heatsink with artic silver thermal gel, and a PCI dual can card to help keep the GPU
cool. Combine that with the Thermaltake Kandalf case (w/o LCS) with its 4 fans and huge space, i think itll keep the system pretty cool.
My hope is that this system will end up being upgradable. Seeing as its SLI ready, has nVidia Forceware for physics calcs, and tonns of PCI and PCIE
slots, I think i accomplished my goal.
Im still considering an LCS system, but ultimately its not up to me. THe bugdet for and LCS system would be probably max $300-3500. I dont think i
would add a GPU or Northbridge water block at this time, but maybe in the future.
