    Default i7-870 And Gigabyte P55-UD5

    Hey guys,

    Not much of an air/water bencher myself, but I will try and get some numbers up for you.
    Anyhow, lets get an idea of what it will do cold.


    To start with, here is a shot or two of the board/setup :)







    One with the heat sinks off.


    Getting ready to go cold!


    Needed to make a back plate till I can get a "real" one off Vince.


    And all setup.
    For the top mounting, On the far side, I used the two socket 775 holes. And on the near side the two for socket 1366.

    For the price point, i7/P55 is a nice way to try sub zero cooling.
    With X58 you top out the BCLK's to fast, unless you're using an unlocked multi. So P55 may let you clock alot higher.
