    The sniper isn't SB.

    Determining if I'll use the sniper to fund review expenses or use it to do LN2 Demos - it does have a nice bling factor with the sinks.

    Ya the writing on that box is a little blurry - I can't make it out exactly but I think it says Gigabite on it if you look close enough

    I did it for the lol's

    A guy can dream.

    Additionally, i was genuinely hoping for a P67, even if it's a cheapy, i'm working on building my brother a stock 2600k system for some light - medium gaming, i might just get him a AMD hexa core if i don't snag this and just pop a nice GPU in it, like a 6990.

    I got 130 by my count. The closest guess was 131 by Sebas!

    Congrats Sebas!

    A few notes on gotchas in the results:
    - I found a few results where members mentioned their friends did it. Going by the letter of what I wrote, this quote is probably important "the total number of components reportedly cooked by forum members". At the time I didn't think much while writing that, but that reads to me as it needs to be cooked by a forum member - not someone saying "I had a friend that did".
    - I found a few results where someone used a heat gun. While they fixed it, that's not "cooked" in the true "oven trick" sense of the term. I didn't count those ones.

    So ultimately, the guesses around 139 were pretty close, but they were a bit loose in what they counted exactly... Sorry guys!

    Other interesting tidbits:

    Craziest cook - Monitor
    Interesting cook - cell phone
    Most Successful card - 8800GTX
