Whats the big deal??(34 posts)
New generation of socket 1366, 45 NM, Intel CPUs available for ATX boards now.
Specs and comparisons.
Available for Laptops after Christmas as fabs are converted for manufacturing.
The 1366 CPUs will come down in price as LGA 775s inventory depletes and Intel manufacturing Fabs switch production.
Be patient as the complete transition always takes about a quarter.
My Asus P6TDeluxe is in the post (an early X-mas present for myself.) I can´t afford the i7 965 (plus a new tower) yet but I thought may as well get started, save up for 3 months and hopefully as Rick says it will have dropped price by then. I can´t wait to see this baby in action.
Read some Trade Paper Reviews (Not Paid Reviewer Sites and they said the Antec Skeleton Case?? Frame is one of the most versatile and practical pieces of hardware ever invented for the enthusiast builder especially if one adds the extra parts to the Frame.
Think from my readings you have picked a real (Winner) but darn is it ugly. (LOL) (LOL) (LOL)
Yes it kinda sorta like my old joke suggestion of just laying out componet parts of a build on a table and blowing a 3600 RPM 30 IN fan on everything. (LOL) (LOL) (LOL).
BTW: Old suggestion (DOES) work but not very practical. :) :) :)
Better to at least have a frame.
Well, if one thinks about the Frame, it is much easy to keep clean with a can of compressed air than removing the sides off of a tower and trying to blow air into the nooks and cranny's of a conventional case. :) :)
@raphoenix, very true!! The only other thing that has me worried is having a little child at home, I don´t want him frying himself (sorry, english sense of humour!!) I´d have to put the case well out of his reach, mount the thing on the wall or something.
Not any worry concerning high voltage in a computer except if PS had some quirk which I've never heard of happening.
Larger issue of child or pet breaking something in Frame.
Be innovative, mount Frame upside down to ceiling like old tradition in our home of mounting Christmas Tree to ceiling upside down. :) :) :) (lol) (lol)
i read the reviews and all i can say is "I WANT ONE!!" im willing to pay $562 USD which is more like $800 AUD thanks to the recent share market plunges.i ve been wanting to upgrade my 1 yr old dual core 2.66ghz into something more powerful and i think i have found the perfect item...
there planning on making an 8 core chip?? WOW thats going to be crazy.
there seems to be and interesting convo going on here between madmacs and raphoenix and i totaly get that english sense of humour madmac. keep it coming.
cant wait for i7 to be released here in AUS which is usually a month or two after the US :(:(:( =(
i guess i should start savin up sooner rather than later.
have a goodnight fellaz
