    I've all the parts but a motherboard and a cpu either at my house or on the way right now (hopefully tomorrow!) for a fat new build. I want an e8400, but all the tales of temperature sensor problems (hopefully not real temp issues) scare me. I've heard some loose talk as a month ago about the supply issues possibly linked to both the temp thing and a possible new stepping. I want to believe it, but I'm just not hearing anything recently. Supply still sucks (although it is sporadic, and still C0 steppings as far as I can tell), and I'm still hopeful for a new stepping sometime soon. But I can't (won't) wait for more than a week or two if I don't hear something encouraging. Any news is good news...
