Make sure you run Prime95 after overclocking, I run it for 30 minutes per tweak and 8 hours once I'm at my goal.

Ah darn, it sucks that I missed this! I was building a computer at the same time as you were. :)

My buddy showed me this neat site that helps you index all your equipment and find the best deals for them. It really helped me build my system. I think I saved around $100 on deals.
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/i8eR (I'll load it up with the gear I got.)

I made the mistake of getting a crappy mobo from that newer company ASRock that was DoA. I had to rebuild the dang thing again after getting the sabertooth. If I learned anything from this, it's that you should never skimp on mobo prices. You pay for what you get. When I contacted ASRock for support they mailed me a BIOS chip for whatever reason, too.

But yeah, when do we get to see pics of this beast machine?

Unfortunately, I'm not even 100% sure it is a BIOS chip! ASRock's "support" consisted of them asking for the shipping manifest and then mysteriously sending me that little guy several weeks later with no explanation or forewarning.

Like Saint said though, those new armored ASUS mobos are both awesome looking and quite reliable!

LOL, i keep forgetting to post pictures...uhhg. I have done a lot of stress tests and OC to 4.2ghz. Runs completely stable with all GPU, CPU, and Memory stress tests. Temps are REMARKABLE. This board runs sooooo cool in temperature and under load this system DOES NOT get hot AT ALL. Love it. Hopefully I can get around to it soon.

By the way, asus sabertooth z77 board is AMAZING. Highest quality board i have seen with the most customizable OC options and temp controls and everything. Can control all fans speeds, voltages, and everything is so complicated yet simplified to make sense. If you are considering getting this board, I HIGHLY recommend it. Best motherboard I have seen and it includes a 5 year warranty. Thermal armor is intense and works super well.
