    Anyone that would like to update this thread can send me the update via PM. I'd do it myself but do not have the time. You'll receive full credit for the update in the OP, and it would be greatly appreciated. :)

    This thread has dozens of linkbacks (144 to be exact) to other forums. Clearly it's been helpful to us here and others throughout the internet.

    Ensure you have 26A on the 12V rail on a quality PSU with active PFC and 80% efficiency +3year warranty.
