Core 2 Duo. You didn't say it had to be recent, and my E8500 clocked to 4.2 GHz (3.1 GHz stock) without any fuss.

If you're wanting something within the last 5 years, well then, I don't know.

Well the only problem I see in the Core2Duo, is I wanted to build a rig like that quite recently. The CPUs are pretty reasonable, but when I started looking for boards, I could by another z77 Maximus for what they wanted for those boards. A good Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge rig would cost about the same, unless you have a place where you could buy the boards for a cheap price. I would only build a core2Duo rig if I could get it cheap.

Posting news about Temps...

Those are getting devilishly lower with the TIM paste curing. I think I made the good choice delidding and my water cooling loop feels effective.

Delta room around 20C today, running @4.4GHz-1.232v.

Thanks!

A day ago I have ran IBT @4.4GHz and a delta room of 22C..Results were pretty encouraging and compare to today's delta is significant ratio.

One thing I do not fully understand is about "Cool Laboratory Pro/Ultra" Tim...

I went through a lot of reading at OCNet Delidded Club. Why some have their liquid dried up after fews months only on Die with their nickel plated IHS and some stays liquid for even a year??

If I ever use that one I want to be sure I can remove the IHS wihtout chipping the Die glass!!!!!

You most likely will be for a while, anyway. Good to see you Tommy, I haven't seen you for a while, but then I keep myself mostly in the BSOD section. I try to escape once in a while though.

That's good to hear, Tommy. Keep feeling that way, it sounds too good. But, it's also good when you can find the time to stop by and say hello. Great to see you and keep up enjoying the Family.
