Thanks! Only problem ive had so far is i got a blue screen of death in windows while checking for windows updates while installing games and programs... Was a page-fault in a non-page area. I chalked it up to just too much crap for windows to handle all at one time lol, another possibility is thats a common BSOD when a stick of ram may be going bad.
Ill start worrying about it if it causes kernel panic in OSX or more BSOD's in windows.

So far im loving it, should get a few years out of it until i can save up for a 12-core mac pro

By then maybe they will have invented a PWB Bender.

So you can fit your flat cards and components into the new curved design.

Just want to post to say my build is still alive. It hasn't missed a beat and gets used every single day. No kernel panics, no BSODs in windows... I couldn't be happier

I still need to buy a 2008 front fan assembly and a 2008 cpu heatsink cover, I am waiting for the right deal to come by on ebay before I pop on such items that arnt a necessity.

A little update. Today I took my Mac Pro apart and swapped out the improperly fitting cpu cover for the correct one. Part number: 922-8527



Also dusted my computer while it was apart and installed my Silicon Image 2 port e-SATA card. Works great with the driver found from here:
http://www.sonnettech.com/support/kb...=&action=a3#a3
Driver is: Tempo SATA E2P, Tempo SATA Edge ExpressCard/34 and Tempo SATA ExpressCard/34 Driver (OS X 10.5+) 1.2.6

All is still well and dandy with my machine. Used every day from light web use to heavy video editing and photo editing. Hasn't missed a beat aside from the boot EFI getting screwed up in OSX once, but I blame that as a software problem and not any fault with my hardware.

Next update to come- another 10k raptor drive or perhaps an SSD for my bootcamp drive, and a Nvidia GTX 770
