Hi All,

I found this forum to be excellent for my XPS630i which is still running great, perhaps a section for the 730x would be a good addition as I just purchased a 730x I7 965 H2C Extreme and would like your thoughts on this rig.

I am still awaiting delivery but its got the i7 965 Extreme with the H2C watercooled option running at 3.8 Ghz along with twin GTX 280 Graphics cards, a killer nic network card and 6 gigs of the tri channel ram.

In fairness aside from the lights issue I found the XPS630i to a reliable machine.

Just wonder what you guys make of the 730x

Regards

Tom

Your going to love the H2C system. When my H2C was working I was getting crazy low temp for my CPU. Over clocking temps will be really low.

I hope I can get luck like you. I had trouble from day 1. Spent 4 to 5 hrs a day for the past 20 days. Had the tech over 4 times. He personally called Dell so I hope I get lucky after all the trouble that I have been through. Crossing my finger. But with my luck with Dell I'll probably get a beater like the one I have now. But I will hold my head up high hopping. Thanks for sharing.
