Completed the physical build and a power-up check last night. Seems nothing is DOA! WOOT! I suppose the second video card could be DOA as until Vista is installed and the drivers are installed and SLI is enabled, it's just sitting there wasting power. But the CPU, RAM, mobo, and drives all seem to be functional.
I need to tidy up the wiring, button up the case, and get to installing Vista, but the worst part is the physical build and it's done.
I didn't lap the CPU or heatsink. My boss, a wise man, pointed out, that, if we were to just lap the CPU sight unseen... what if it was a DOA CPU? I'd never know, and of course, lapping violates your warranty (with no lube even). So, I'll see what I get sans lapping.
