Originaly, I bought a EVGA GTX590 classified...I kept it a few days and RMA'd it...the driver issues, possible throttling, voltage woes and all gave me a bad feeling...got a full refund ($729) and bought the two 560Ti's for $249 each (with $10 gift cards+games+MIR's)...anyway, I'm NOT SAYING that my 560Ti's are as fast as a 590, because they aren't, but I'll say that I'm HAPPIER with them...P get P8100 in 3Dmarks11 with SLI 560Ti's...I was getting P8500 with the GTX590...

I had a XFX HD5870 reference on the P5Q Pro at the time....

I installed the Sandy setup with a backup GTX260 core 216 that I have...it felt pretty much like the Q9550+HD5870...can't compare numbers, but that old GTX260 was getting a good kick in the pants from the Sandy setup...

Proof of previous GTX590 ownership...

Back to your topic, You'll like the 2500K I'm sure...it's AWESOME performance for the $$$
That 590 is very arousing

Those 590's are about equal or a tad slower than GTX 570 SLI.

Yeah, I'm looking forward... One of the most exciting moments is going to the post office getting the package and getting home to the unboxing...

I see you are doing 4.8GHz on air-cooling at 1.42 V-core with that 2500K. Not bad This is what I also hope to get..

First I was considering the P8P67 EVO.. But found it had a few features I didn't need, otherwise identical to the Pro, and not worth the price difference... Or on a different note, here in Norway the Pro costs 166 Euros and the EVO costs 186 Euros.. So not a big difference. The EVO has an extra LAN port (Which is useless for me), has onboard, power/reset/clear cmos buttons and a extra heatsink. So just for the looks of that extra heatsink, maybe I should have bought that instead.

But I think I will be perfectly happy with the Pro, covering all my needs

I agree the evo has a few extra features but non that really matter tbh, most ppl here have the pro ive not seen many evo's around

Yes 4.8 you may be luckier and get that at a lower voltage, It is surprisingly easy to overclock on these sb cpus

Want some more Sandy "prOn"?

My mobo is the DELUXE, but my buddy has the PRO and besides the feature set, both mobos act the same, performance wize...cooler and RAM in sig...

[IMG] Uploaded with ImageShack.us[/IMG]

My 2500K feels at home at 4.7 GHz, 1.40volts, most settings set to "extreme"...4.8GHz? Well, I'd have to raise the voltage more than that...not too sure I like the idea...

Very nice system you got there That ripjaws RAM looks cool.. I can imagine that Noctua cooler using push/pull is just as good, if not better than coolers like Thermalright Ultra Extreme and Hyper 212+...

I have a Thermalright Ultra Extreme. I believe it's rev B. That venemous x does not look much bigger?
