New Rig Project (2)

I previously told you that I was going to build a new pc for myself, and I gave a list about the parts. Now I’ve had the rig up and running for about an week, and I’m mostly happy. The e8400 processor is very nice, and in combination with the gigabyte ex38-dq6 motherboard, there shouldn’t be any problems overclocking it. However, the stock heatsink doesn’t do it’s job efficiently enough for my standards (min: 35C, max: 46C, avg: 38C with factory clock), so I’ve ordered a Scythe Ninja Plus. I hope I can fit it in the case 😀

The Zotac Geforce 8800 GT AMP! card is working like a charm. I ran 3DMark and scored just below 13000 with stock settings, and when I’ve got the new heatsink and some overclock, I’ll run it again and post the results.
