    Whatever about solder,TiM and people ripping caps off cpu's and putting in their own TIM.. even if it does drop temps a lot.sheesh.
    rip off cap .. apply tim,lap cap and apply more tim to interface to cpu cooler..lifes too short.
    ivys have a higher tj max anyway,ive read .

    Im messing around now to see how slow I can get the fans running under load :)
    Oh Maedar. the p67 board has cpu temp control on fan speed.You set a temp,the range on mine is 50-65C as a point where the fans will spin up to full speed z 77 may be the same.
    There is a seperate temp point for chassis and cpu4 pin fans.
    In my case 4.8,60c wont come up unless your benching,just like Waz probably,if you have the rans running at about 1500 rpm.

    Im still interested in the samsung memory.(the stuff I have now needs 10 timings and 1.6 v for even 1600,2133 capable memory would be something to play around with at least :)



    Ill wait till Pj dips his toe in the new machine water with benchmarks to make us cringe before another major change

    pencil lines..ahh yeh, never got to that on amd.The 820D,part of intels earliest dual core tech..sort of a piggyback arrangement(monitoring only gave readouts from one core ,and the unread one got hotter and failed first.
    That cpu had a pad blocking technique,using insulating tape where you could clock it up to 5 ghz or so,mine didnt like anything over 4,the unmonitored core kept failing I suppose!New to Intel (sort of)-aclock-jpg

    Wow Kick, yeah i remember that too, pulling and replacing caps, all the fun stuff... Fun times.

    Parts started rolling in lastnight, hope to see the rest of the stuff today actually and start the build. If anyone is interested I will post some pics of the build, open for critique and suggestions. I was going to do an un-boxing video as a first post on youtube but I am like a little kid on Christmas day, wasn't able to wait to get the camera out and set up, besides, not really getting anything all that new anyway.

    I saw that Micro Center site ProfJim, they have the RAM Wazza was talking about but its pricey compared to other vendors, I think I will wait. I see you are in Tacoma, I'm a bit north of you, Marysville/Lake Stevens area...

    Wazza, even upping the voltage a bit are you having any heat issues with those sticks of RAM? I will not be using a big CPU cooler to help cool the RAM but was thinking maybe the top case fans will help move enough air around them to keep them cool...?

    Also, whats the benchmark utility everyone uses today, is it still SiSoft and 3D Mark/Advantage?

    Sisoft Sandra is still going too.Its okand still free.
    pc wizard, from cpuid is still going also.. not perfect as its also free :0.

    Like heres a overall performance pic from sandra.
    I included some of the components your getting.
    gx as you can see plays a big part in the measurements.
    Aside from that on the simple bar graph(there is a circular chart but its confusing to post).
    The things that "mark me down" are my heh old vertex 2 ssd,my memory,.
    All these processors are overclocked..to varying degrees.
    Things that mark me up are the sli 460.
    For example the z77 with the 2500k cpu is behind me.. nyah nyah etc,but thats only because it has a single gx,its ssd is faster, memory slightly better also and so on,something like that anyway..

    You have quite a powerful rig there. Congrats! What made you switch to Intel after so long time with AMD? :) A lot of people don't know that Intel CPUs now rock in games as well.

    Got tired of AMD always seeming to fall behind. Plus I want to get into some video encoding and stuff which Intel just really excels at.

    So got my rig put together finally guys. I will get some pictures up and some benchmarks.

    Quite a hassle all told, twice over two days had to go pick up parts from FedEx, not cool as I Payed extra for 2 day, and it takes 5 days and me driving out to get my parts, lame.
