My new Sandybridge setup Built today!

Got all my nice new shiny bits today so have been busy building and setting up , thought I would share a few pics.

Got it running nice and stable 4.6ghz @ 1.36vcore

Frio fans set on low , max temp so far running prime95 is 66 degree's

Very very happy with it , nice upgrade from my old Q8300

For full spec see my system spec below.


Cheers

Paul.

Edit- Passmark performance test pic is at 4.8ghz clock

Nice system. You might consider adding a couple of case fans later on. One at the top, one at the rear.

My two cents.

I 100% agree with you sygnus , I will be ordering a 140mm for the top and 120mm for the rear tomorrow.

In all my excitement ordering all the other bits I forgot about them.

Cheers for the input

Paul.

Nice system paulpicks21, having just built my own Sandybridge system there is nothing better than to see your own creation come to life and the faster speed. I upgraded from a Q6600 HP system.

I know that feeling. Once you get it all together you say "I can't believeI forgot those"

Anyway enjoy the nice system

Thanks sygnus.

Got the fans installed now and after over a week of running it I think the thermal compound is working nicely now.

I just ran prime95 for 30mins and the hottest temp a core hit was 58 which I think is pretty sweet for a 4.6ghz overclock @1.36 vcore

I will keep it at that as a 24/7 clock I recon.

Cheers

Paul.

Oh will post some final pics of it in the "show us your rig" thread tomorrow.

Can't wait. And nice temps with that clock. Voltage isn't bad either

Now all we need is the pics
