Gary with that multi locked 1055T, if you're planning on overclocking the CPU I would start there and use the increased HT/FSB to bring the ram up to speed.

I need to get the new board stable and booting properly before I can play too much Richard. I did have the 1055 up to 4.2GHz but not stable. 3.9 was the highest stable. This new board has more settings I can make and I need to acclimate to it.

Tell me about it. These new UEFI bios' have more options than you can shake a stick at. The fun part is figuring out what most of them do, especially all the voltage settings that were put in primarily for Bulldozer. If nothing else they are a heck of a lot easier to navigate around in.

Thanks Guys/Gals!! It's fun to jump up there every now and again but I mostly stick to my 24/7 speed of 4.5ghz, it's really all I ever need.

@tw33k: Yes it got a bit warm, and thats on a H70 cooler. If I ran better fans than the stock ones and ran them full out it might of stayed a bit lower.

I got my 965 BE to run at 4.1 Ghz stable but settled for 4.0 Ghz all 4 cores

Yes, it's nearly like a new language for me. I think I will like it a lot once used to it and new terms and finding all the tweaks available.

Alas, the new board took a dump just 2-3 days after installing it and I am returning it for replacement. Good news is I bought it through one of Newegg's sales and it has a 60 day return on it.

Question to all
With all the good numbers and benchmarks floating around, does anyone see an actual big jump in performance in day-to-day use? I never have other than apps maybe opening a little faster.
