That's a really nice rig

Good job on the cable management, looks very nice

Like the CPU cooler.

Enjoy....
I am enjoying it like no other pc I've ever owned. I see you have an i5 750 to. Very nice rig you have there. I like my mobo but I'm thinking of getting the i7 930 or just replacing my i5 750 with the i7 860 down the road. Not sure what I want to do.

My cooler is rock solid. I just added two new fans to get the push/pull set up with two little powerhouse fans. I put two Gentle Typhoons at 1850 rpm's!
I'm really liking mine as well, most fun PC I ever had, might go the i7 860 route later.

Mine usually runs at (30-C) 86-F, was about (54-C) 129-F during the Prime95 test, CPU 3.6 MHz.
Gotta like those CPU coolers.

What's your idle/BTTW temps at 4 GHz?

Just ordered a SSD, will have to wait a little while for it to arrive

My i5 at idle is near the mid 30's as well. I do have my Vcore pumped up near 1.37. Got give my mobo some breathing room. At stress time gets near 73c.

I mean as in stress testing such as LinX testing.

What SSD did you order? I'm really looking at picking me up the Intel X25-M Mainstream 80GB! Right now their like $299 at the Egg. I'm gonna wait til they drop in price. That's still kinda of expensive.

Those are good temps, proving CPU coolers are a must have investment.

Ordered the Intel X25 V, only 40GB but the price is right
When the pricing relaxes on the current new batch of SSDs, the X25 V will have a good home in the second HDD bay of my laptop.

The X25M 80GB was at $229 (Newegg) for a while, that's a good deal.

Been looking at the new SandForce controllers, they're looking pretty good.

Best 50GB SSDs at the best price:

OCZ Vertex LE (Limited Edition)
At read - 270 MB/s and write - 250 MB/s, thinks it's the SF 1500 controller, $202 it's a deal.

OCZ Agility 2
Read - 285 MB/s and write - 275 MB/s, SF 1200 controller, $ 195 good also.

Ideally would like to have 60-80GB for my desktop.

If you wait 5-6 months these prices should be better.
Next January Intel's 25 nm are due to be released, that should bring the price/GB to a acceptable level.

The problem is the waiting

Well, I don't have a picture right now, but off the top of my head:

Desktop: AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ 3.0GHz, 4GB A-DATA DDR2 RAM, 250GB Seagate IDE drive (OS), 160GB Seagate SATA drive (Multimedia/Downloads), Sparkle Nvidia GeForce 9400GT 512MB. Pretty good, but the GPU needs upgrading to play more recent games on higher resolutions and settings.

I just got this for my birthday 2 days ago: Toshiba Satellite A505-S6017 Laptop

The graphics chipset in this thing is really beefy, much more than I expected. I read Intel Media Accelerator HD and kind of frowned. But then I put on Half-Life 2 out of curiousity and it played it totally maxed out. 1300 x 600, 16x AA, 6x MSA, everything on High. No hickups at all, and it was just about as fast as on my desktop. It really shocked me. I read that it's the equivalent to a 9400M.

Hello Sanvean.

It's HDMI, but my machine never "sleeps" but the monitor will go to standby.
