New Processor Arrived
Just like last time, Intel turned around my warranty replacement in short order. I received the new processor today. Now, I just need to pick up the new motherboard. I've decided to go with abit's IP35 Pro, as it seems to be the P35 mainboard to beat these days. It has more features than I really need, but it's the only abit board that has at least 4 system fan headers on the board (which is a requirement for me). Unfortunately, no one appears to have it in stock at the moment. So, it looks like I'll have to wait a bit longer to install the new proc.
