Anyway you guys enjoy your new systems while stick with my i7-950 system a lil longer
1366 is still a damn powerhouse - Those on 775 are really only starting to notice the limitations now. You've got plenty of miles left in yours

The main reason I went with SB was because of the impulse buy of my Lian Li case (and I needed a distraction at the time). I was going to do an X79 build but realised 'mainstream' is enough for me these days. I'm in no rush to go back to dual/multi card setups and I'm over being 'ahead' by being an early adopter.

(I even toyed with idea of a Bulldozer build - then it was released... )

I just hit the tpu switch on my mobo and it oc'd mine to 4.3 at 100% load my temps don't go past 62. Are those good temps? I'm on a simple hyper 212. I'm not like a pro at oc'ing, I remembered my board had a switch and I flipped it lol. I ran prime 95 for like 2 hours I think and it was looking good. I got a bsod but that was totally my fault. Ima run it longer when I get some time, but from what I saw it was going good

My Evo sent this on its own.

Temps are perfectly fine, but I'd definitely check what all the voltages are being set too. Asus boards like to overvolt.

I'm sure your friend would be delighted to see the amount of volts you're pumping through that thing... on air

Yeah.... Intel only recommends a voltage between 0.800 - 1.375. You're pushing 1.54volts! Wow...... - Intel® Core

You sure about those temps?


@ smarteye, yeah I'm happy with my system and you're right it has a lot left. Anyway If I had a better after market CPU cooler I'd push for the 4gig range but the cooler I have now isn't up to the task.

And to be honest I was very near getting a SB system myself but in the end couldn't justify replacing the i7-950 system.

Id back off on that voltage or youll find what used to be a easy 24/7 OC can no longer be sustained with the voltages it once did.
Youll end up needing more.

Worst case scenario, default clocks/voltages may need a voltage increase to be stable.

No, you don't have to be crazy to overclock, but it helps a lot.
