    I chose to use a phenom II 550BE processor as i felt like upgrading my main system to a 965BEAttachment 3021
    this processor unlocks all cores but due to the tdp restriction I chose to use it as a dual core overclocked to 3.5Ghz instead

    It was a tight fit getting everything in but I managed to end up with a case that was only 230mm(9") wide, 210mm(8.25") high and 250mm(9.9") deep. Attachment 3026
