    Well I decided to do a little heavy duty benching with this PC, so I pulled out my Phase-Change out last month.

    It took me a couple of weeks to get all the parts and fabricate a new LGA1366 hold-down.

    And then I prepped my mobo and made some gaskets.

    heatsinks and cpu retention mechanism removed.

    [​IMG]

    Painted both sides of the mobo socket area with clear nail polish.

    [​IMG]

    filled the cpu socket with Dielectric Grease

    [​IMG]

    re-attached the retention mechanism, cpu and gasket assembly.

    Add power and were at a chilly -40C

    [​IMG]

    Real Temp goes down to -7C and refuses to move, up or down :D

    I've been benching SuperPi for a week or so now and I'm at 8.203 seconds @ 4.949GHz :D

    Well after my Phase-Change Super-Pi runs I needed a new mobo, after blowing out the voltage regulator circuit. So I went to the Egg and picked up this EVGA Classified 760.

    My True Copper just barely fits, it's just barely touching the Northbridge Heatsink.

    I bought the OCZ PC3 16000 DDR3 2000 a few months ago but I never took any pictures.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Everythings put back together and here's my new wire management.

    And here we have my Black Beauties.

    Here are a few pictures of my new OCZ Agility 120GB SSD (I'm waiting on Windows 7 before I install it).

    To give you a perspective of it's size I've laid a box of Cig's next to it.

    In order to mount this drive I had to order a 2.5" to 3.5" bracket.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817994072
    As you can see I've painted the brackets Black and I drilled a couple of holes to mount a fan.

    And here we can see the fan mounted.
