Speed I bet you can't wait 'til AMD64 comes out. I personally want to wait 'til they mature a little, just like the 1700+ Tbred-B. Then I'll definently get 1 and a watercooling setup:)  I'm hoping my P4 would hold on 'til then.

Yeah m8. As soon as an A64 mobo goes easily to 230mhz or the multi is unlocked like on tbreds and bartons, I will be snapping one up. Thats if overclocked it gives at least 25% perf increase on my current setup. As for you and you'r P4 setup, the A64 wont be that much faster, if at all until it reaches 240fsb and 2.4ghz....

I love how they designed the nForce3 mobo, the CPU, memory, and graphics card are so close to eachother, means 1 92mm Tornado could cool all 3 components.

I'm gonna try something like <A HREF="http://www.cpucitystore.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?..." target="_new"> this </A> next week on my 9700. I think I'll just epoxy it to the shim, and use AS ceramique on the core. That way if I want to take it off, the shim will come with it lol... Its only 66mmx63mm too, so probably wont weigh too much...

Your P4 will last till than with PC4000 coming your way soon. And PC4200 around the bend. What more do you need.

LOL, that's true though, I like OCZ memory over Corsair now, even though ppl say OCZ ram has bad quality, but they seem to overclock much better than Corsair.

You have to use what works best. Looks like OCZ is working for you.
