And by break in do you mean running a stability test to make sure the OC worked.

List of stuff I need to do before September:
1. Finish the Emulator of the Casio Prizm (in active development)
2. Finish the the SH3 asm IDE/assembler/linker program (in active development)
3. Create a partial Java virtual machine  for the Prizm (not started)
4. Create Axe for the Prizm with an Axe legacy mode (in planning phase)
5. Develop a large set of C and asm libraries for the Prizm (some progress)
6. Create an emulator of the 83+ for the Prizm (not started)
7. Create a well polished game that showcases the ability of the Casio Prizm (not started)

Break in is just leaving the computer on for a while to make sure none of the components are defective.

umm yeah pretty much that. I wanna get the thermal compound settled and whatnot before i do any type of OC'ing whatsoever to make sure that "maximum thermal transfer capabilities can be reached". so yeah

Ah I see, thanks for the info. :) I was wondering if it was related to not letting the computer run for too long and give it breaks when you get it and the like and I was confused, since many people leave theirs running 24/7 and mine went in that state about 6 hours after getting it (not earlier, because it was 30F outside when I got it back home from the store and there could have been humidity and stuff)

I usually have enough parts laying around at any given time to build a computer. The main processor I have multiple of is a Pentium 4 2.66ghz. Not too bad of a chip in my humble opinion. If I don't have certain parts like heatsink clips I will just use zip-ties to hold it together. On one I had to use the zip-ties to hold the heatsink and a screw to hold in the fan. Works quite nicely. In the future I want to build up a nice machine that will do anything I throw at it. At the moment my dream config would be an i7 with at least 8gb of RAM and 1tb hard drive. Biggest hard drive I have ever owned is in this laptop and is 320gb.

Make sure those zip ties are down tight, or you might hear a sizzling sound coming from your CPU.

that doesn't mean a thing unfortunately. My motherboard had the following ports:
2 PCIex16 slots, PCI Gen2 (1x16, 1x8), 3 PCI-Ex1, and 2 PCI

I found this: http://www.hwtools.net/adapter/mp1.html

I guess you just plug in your MiniPCIe into it and plug it into your computer

Meh, but you really want to use one USB port for that?

I'm glad to see your computer kinda works in overall. I hope you can fix your wifi card issue soon. I wonder how well will your computer handle games?
