    Gaming Rig - SLI GTX460 Hawk

    One of the reasons i heard why they never continued was they were not able to get there motherboards out in to market in a timely fashion. So people would upgrade to an ASUS etc. and didn't want to wait for the DFI's to come out. Yes there are some that would wait but some is not enough. That is what i heard, could be wrong.

    Corsair Giveaway

    Corsair 800D I love this case! So big and roomy even with SLI'ed 460's and i am sure i could SLI 580's no problem. Quite even with all my fans in there and fantastic cable management.

    Best video game storyline?

    I would have to say for me: FF7 Hands down best story line ever (for me) FF8 Was not quite as good but still very enjoyable Dead Space 1 loved it played it through a couple of times Mass Effect Series fantastic as well

    Looking for some quality earbuds..

    I would go with the Razer Morays they are around 50 bucks or less on sale. And i use them for music at work as well in my front pocket and no problems with the cable. And as a bonus i put them through the wash and the dryer and they still work fine sound great to .

    CPU idle temp misread?

    Well if you drop your ambient temp by 10 degrees then you should see a difference in temps for sure. I would say that yes you have a temperature reporting problem. Have you updated your bios? That might help.

    3x Crossfire 5870s stability?

    As far as i know you cant do triple sli with the 460's, in fact i am 99% sure you cant. I personally think go for it and see what happens....the worst thing would be you take one out and just sell it.

    SSD or CPU?

    I would go with the SSD for sure.....maybe even a revo drive!

    Overclock help

    Might want to give full specs of your computer........just so we know what is going on. Ram / amount for one. I would suggest lowering your divider for your ram to really low, meaning run it lower then its rated speed to take it out of the equation so it is not impeding your progress. Then see if it is stable. If it is then start slowly start increasing your fsb until your unstable.....if your temps are still not bad then you can put a little extra voltage to see if that helps. These are very general instructions until we know what you are running. BTW not to be discouraging but i was not able to get my q6600 stable past 3.2ghz. But give it a shot and see what happens.
