    Thx mate, it's time consuming as hell to make the mounts. But it's well worth it, super secure & I don't even think it's possible to get a bad mount :cool: Mach II's were the bomb, I loved those things. Crapped all over the Vapo LS's LOL.

    Thx man, yeh should be fun. I've actually got a STACK of older hardware to keep me busy for months benching for some HWbot points :lol:

    Yeah I don't think I can even take it much past 3.6Ghz, using super crap ram atm which is going to really screw me until my good 1066 stuff gets here.
