Intel is gearing up to launch an all new Pentium CPU with the brand name Pentium E6700. The company has had its Core 2 Duo E6700 on the retail market for a few years now but the new launch is a different one from the 65nm architecture of the dual-core chip.

The new Pentium E6700 CPU will feature a dual core Wolfdale 45nm core just like its current colleague from Intel, the E6600. The new CPU will however, be a faster one at 3.2GHz than the E6600, which is clocked at 3.06GHz. Other than the somewhat higher speed, both the E6700 and the E6600 will carry the same 1066MHz FSB and 2MB cache.

While the new CPU does not have much to offer in terms of new value, it should help strengthen Intel’s Pentium brand, which has been a best seller for many-a-year now. The E6700 is expected to arrive in the second quarter of this year with a price tag of around $99.99.

It thinks 653w on my gaming rig's specs, I'll definitely plug my rig into my meter tomorrow to see how close it is.
I have a feeling that it uses a little bit more power than that though.

4x SATA HDD (WD Caviar Green 1TB)

Danger Den & Koolance water-cooling system, unsure of the exact parts... I'd have to hunt down the boxes.

Haven't overclocked anything yet, I dread to think what the power usage will be if I do that.

I originally had only 1 of the HD5850's but my friend had one and then upgraded to the 5970 and gave me his 5850. Luckiest freebie I've ever gotten.

I think I have a picture of the server machine on another forum somewhere from before I went eco-friendly and switched back to IDE , I'll see if I can dig out where I put it.
I'll try get hold of a friend's camera to get some updated pictures as well.

=D Really need to learn cable management, at the moment I have a flood of cables all over the place inside and outside the cases.

:rollingla yeah that eluded me at one point aswell but i gave it a good bash this time and did as good as i could given the opportinities to route the cables, u got like a pci card in there to handle all those IDE drives?

Yes, 3 connect to the motherboard and the rest are divided by two 4-port cards.
Originally I was using a single 8-port SATA RAID controller with bright orange cables, it looked like hell... I still have nightmares about that.

Planning to eventually switch to a rack of blade servers when I can afford the electricity bill that'll bring.

Best hop of to sleep now I think, gotta get up again in 6 hours for work. =(

lol never thot of just gettin like 3x2tb drives im sure that wouldnt be as power hungry 9x500gb (i think 500gb is the largest ide's u can get and im just presuming thats what u have im more than likely wrong) plus sata is so much faster than ide?

ha ha yeah orange satas are horrible i dont even like red ones i wanna change the ones in my case to black but they would have to all be right angled like the ones i have just now
