I'm planning on doing this - just wondering if anybody has built their own computer running a quad core, what motherboard and other parts they went with for their system, etc. Prices should be dropping fairly soon on the quad, and I can't help myself from wanting to make a beast...or at least think about making one

If you look in the OC thread or do a quick search I believe there are 2-4 users that have posted their quad-core system

I don't run desktop quads yet, but I have several Dual Xeon E5335 and E5345s

One thing I have found is that in a number of implimentations they can be noticiably slower than my dual Xeon 5150 boxes. You either need to run a lot of different apps, or a very well written multithreaded app to get a good boost.

Just something to consider.
