Think you can take those with a rather large grain of salt. For starters CPU-Z doesn't have Bulldozer support until 1.58. Notice which version is used in that screen shot?

Solarstarshines,
It's coming along. A couple more case openings to sort through all the wires but I'm sure it will run cool and strong. Consider the new H100 down the road as fun little cooling option if the ram will clear?

Solarstarshines, The pictures look good. With me, the most time consuming part of the build is cable management. So, it makes sense to see if it runs OK first. But it looks good. Keep us posted.

Also look at the version # , MAX TDP and core voltage. The version wasn't on your chart and with that voltage, I wouldn't want to have to cool it.

This is an engineering sample so I don't know what the final product will be like. I guess we will see in a few Months, but at least we have something to talk about while waiting.

I noticed in the sisoft sandra shot that they were using DDR3-2000 ram and it listed the FSB as 152. The CPUz shot showed it as 200. So, if 3200mhz is the stock speed of the CPU, they have raised the FSB to increase the ram speed and lowered the multiplier to bring the CPU back to stock speed.

That or their Photoshop skills are lacking and they forgot to make a few additional changes along the way.

200.7 is not what you would normally expect to see for FSB.
