Looks good, is it time to OC that CPU?

I'll bet you can easily get a 7.8 out of it

Feels great. I know it's one of the old i7s, but I got it for a nice price off a mate, so thought I'd save myself a bit of money. The SSD makes the world of difference, which I'm sure you've seen with your SSD. Just a shame I can't put everything on it
Sounds like a good deal.

SSDs are great, will be nice when they're cheaper than HDDs
Haven't a clue how to OC, tried reading up on it but sounds confusing, however when most of my warranties run out and I have a functioning bank account again than it's BBQ time Ha Ha.

Right now I am working on speeding up POST time and windows start-up time (58 sec now, 78 sec previous)

Find a nice tutorial on OC'ing that CPU, it's a great learning experience.
I'll check some sourcs and post a link when I find a good one.

Your post should be in the 20-30 sec range

I haven't run a speed test on my boot time yet, I turned off the boot GUI because it wasn't even getting a chance to finish, now my welcome screen flashes for about a second, doesn't stay long enough to read the 'Welcome'.

Here's mine, I moved my SSD from GSATA 2 to SATA port. Weak spot seems to be my Quadro 2000

Well I had a drive die on me yesterday and although it lasted 7 years+ and I managed to save every scrap of data, I have now gone over the 10TB Hard drive mark. I have now promised myself that the next hard drive I buy will be an SSD so look out for 7+ score ratings after next upgrade.
The most likely candidate is a 250Gb OCZ Vertex 2 with SATA III Technology (Only on SATA II at moment but it's backwards compatible and will set me up nice when I trade in my MOBO and RAM for AMD Crosshair 3 and 16GB DDR3 1600MHz after the summer holidays).

My SSD is an OCZ Onyx 32gb. It's a cheap SSD but is much better than a mechanical disk for boot. I only payed 49$ for it at Microcenter one weekend.
