I had to cut it short, to do some work while the baby was asleap (not the new baby).
The e6300 is up and running fine, as is my athlon 64. The home theater pc is another story (it would have got a heavily overclocked athlon xp 2500). . Due to windows activation problems (damn windows), I couldn't reactivate it. No you have so many days to activate or anything, just death, you cannot use your system till you reactivate, and reactivation would not work. The people at windows reactivation number cannot help, and tell me to wait all weekend till mon during buisness hours to talk to tech support. So I try to do a repair install and kill it. So I try to change hard drives for a clean install, and the water cooling springs a leak (the back of the reservoir/pump unit became detached). So I call koolance and they say, compusa hasen't been an authorized dealer for about 3 years so no warranty for you (it should have a 1 year warranty and I bought it about 1.5 months ago). So I'm in the process of finding my receipt, after which I'll try and deal with compusa for the warranty (bought it at a store that was closing and there were signs all over the place, all manufactures warranty's in effect so I would say they are responsible). I guess it will be down for a little while. After I talk to compusa if they agree, I will remove the bad part, and build the computer with air cooling till the part gets replaced.
No word on the new baby yet, though theres lots of work to get the house ready for him. It could be any day.
