I'm surprised because the experiment worked. I switched my mainboard, the CPU, and the RAM and windows still booted properly. It took some time when it booted first but then it installed all needed drivers by itself and after a restart everything was working. Well ok I had to activate windows again but that took about 5 seconds. I never switched a mainboard so fast.
The great thing is: The computer is now very silent and very cool :) Even under load the CPU remains at 43°C and only needs about 61Watts (proof) :)
