Also, can anyone give me instructions about how to upgrade the BIOS of the P5W DH to the beta ones that will support Conroe and 7950GX2?
If I buy an Intel Celeron D 326 Prescott 533MHz FSB LGA 775 will that allow me to boot up to update the BIOS through a floppy? Once that's upgraded, I'd have to remove the heatsink and thermal paste with the ArctiClean, which is reputable, right?

That Scythe Infinity is 960 grams or about 2.11 lbs. It's huge and heavy!!!

Don't know about your case but this new Scythe is very interesting!!! Ninja or Mine are smaller but the Infinity is supposed to be the big Kahuna!!!
