Well my Fleabay is going better this time so the 1156 upgrade may still happen. I do have a couple of questions for you guys that have gone that route though. Aside from Benching and Folding@Home, what else benefits from HyperThreading? Trying to decide if it's worth the extra for an i7-860 over an i5-760.

The other question is memory. I haven't worked with DDR3 yet. At what point is it better to have lower timings over higher ram speed on DDR3? For example, which would be better, 1600 @ cas 9 or 1333 @ cas 7 if everything else is equal? I know that with DDR2 1066 @ 5-5-5 was better than 800 @ 4-4-4. Does that hold true with DDR3 as well?

Any insights would be greatly appreciated. And as always, thanks.

I can't tell you what the benefits are in the 860 vs the 760, but with the ram, unless you plan on benching for numbers, go with the tighter timings. I doubt you will need the extra Mhz to reach the overlcock you will want to obtain for 24/7.

Its nice to see these boards hold their value. Actually for me the value is up. My wifey picked up my ud3p from newegg brand new last christmas for $100 free shipping . I just picked up another ud3p locally along with an E0 e8500 for a very nice price. Put it this way I could probly sell the ud3p alone for almost what I paid for that and the cpu together. Hell I might even be able to put money in my pocket and end up with a free E0 E8500

ya that could be why.... but NoGuru doesn't have a lot of feedback either.. i would wait a week or so and throw it back on there...
