Nice review, and to Bio-Hazard I would suggest buying the board, or putting it on his wishlist. The thing I love about my older ECS board is the ability to do a BIOS update from within windows, which I bet that this mobo will be able to do as well

I would have to say that this monitor is probably the best LCD to be found on Newegg. If you don't like it, I would still go for a 19" monitor since 17" is too small IMO

I like setscrews setup except I would recommend a different mobo, preferably one with an nforce 680i chipset, and you can get a case with a 480 W power supply for $35 at http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?Submit=ENE&N=2010090007+1295819208+105510029&Subcategory=7&description=&Ntk=&srchInD...

When you first start out on some of the WU's, the time is sometimes exaggerated and can say like 196 days for the WU completion.
Maybe this is the deadline? It usually gets more accurate after half an hour for me

My E6300 is locked at 7, and the E6400 is locked at 8, it goes up sequentially for all of the C2D series. The Extremes are multiplier unlocked but come at 11X (i think)
