    Default So I ordered my new computer

    Here are the specs, I took quite a few suggestions from those who posted in my last thread, thank you for all the tips.

    Here it is (copy/pasted from the invoice):

    1 x Intel Core i7 920 Quad Core Processor LGA1366 2.66GHZ Bloomfield 8MB LGA1366 4.8GT/S

    1 x Thermaltake ISGC-400 Heatpipe CPU Cooler LGA1366 LGA775 AM2 W/ 120MM Fan 800-1300RPM 58.3CFM 16DBA

    1 x Gigabyte EX58-UD3R ATX LGA1366 X58 DDR3 2PCI-E 2PCI SATA2 RAID Sound GLAN CrossFireX Motherboard

    1 x OCZ OCZ3B2000C9LV6GK Blade 6GB 3X2GB DDR3-2000 CL9-9-9-30 240PIN DIMM Triple Channel Memory Kit

    2 x Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E 2XDVI-I HDCP HDTV Out Video Card (Crossfired)

    1 x Antec Nine Hundred Mid Tower Gamer Case 900 ATX 9 Drive Bay No PS Top USB2.0 1394 Audio

    1 x Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan

    1 x Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB SATA2 3.5IN 8.5MS 7200RPM 32MB Hard Drive OEM


    I decided to pick up another 4870 and try out a crossfire setup simply out of curiosity, I figure I'm already spending the money on a new computer why not go try it out?

    Is that cooler compatible with the LGA 1366 socket? The description you gave makes it look to be a LGA 775/AM2 cooler.

    Otherwise, solid choices. That's a badass rig.

    From my (very limited) understanding, the CPU uses an LGA1366 socket and so does the fan? I may have not quite understood it as I placed my order, I'm sure we could get it fixed if they don't fit. Is anyone able to clarify on this issue?

    I forgive you Baums, how could I possibly hold it against you with all that useful information you gave me before .


    Anyone here have any experience with a crossfire setup? I'm just curious as to what to expect with my setup

    You'll get a little adapter cable to hook the two cards up. You'll be fine, just read the documentation.

    Well, in that case, you should see a noticeable performance increase compared to just one card, for instance, in a really graphic-intensive game.
