    The pictures for the internals of the systems are the wrong way round. The phenom description has the CORE i7 piccies and vice versa :-)

    Indeed, it does seem that way...

    The orientation of the cooler on the "i7 rig" screams AM3 to me... 'cos i've been having no end of problems with airflow because of it.
    And the gigabyte mobo in the "phenom rig" is the GA-EX58-UD3R.....

    A peek inside shows the Gigabyte board's socket orientation is 90° further clockwise than the AMD box.
    Which also means that, that ^^ needs changing..

    and to me, the NB HS looks to have Asus written on it...

    Well spotted
