Everyone says that to me. However, that's why I asked him what he does with his computer.

It seems to me that more than half of the people who bought a 2600K on here don't even need HT and most of them ended up disabling it just so they could overclock better and get better gaming performance due to having it disabled.

It reminds me of the reason why any one of us would get Windows 7 Ultimate.

You've got quite a valid point there. But what I don't get is why not just get a 2500K in the first place of you are going to disable HT anyway as it'll save you a $100. Then again sometimes people just like the fact that they have the beat possible. Me, I guess I'm one of the few who actually bought my rig with not gaming in mind, but instead with producing and video transcoding I totally use the HT, but I fuess I got lucky enough to get a chip that can hit 5GHz with HT enabled without using an insane amount of voltage.

Hehe, I've gotten lazy since I got my rig in March and achieved the said overclock. Summer and the insane heat have been a real impedence and hindrance to my overclocking endeavors so I guess I got lazy And I don't think the fact with uni starting in a week helps my case either. I don't wanna mess up my freshman year But I guess I could always find some time I can spend overclocking some more!

Too many of the people who get the 2600K end up realizing that they have absolutely no use for HT. These are the same people who rush into a decision and just get what they think is the best of the best and then ask questions later.

So they just think "Well, it has 100MHz faster stock speed, 2MB more cache, and HT. Therefore, it's far superior to the i5-2500K, so my decision is a no-brainer". Later, they realize "Oh. I wasted my money because all I'm doing is gaming and watching YouTube videos. Man, why didn't I just ask OCN in the first place?"

That's what I meant by how it reminds me of why many people bought Windows 7 Ultimate. It's like "I don't want to do any thinking, so I'll just get Windows 7 Ultimate". Sigh.

Money wasters. It irritates me to no end.

Exactly. You are one of those people that make me happy because you actually made an informed decision.

Does anyone know when the next official release (non-beta) bios is supposed to come out? I haven't touched my cpu since i stuck it at 4.5ghz and I'd really like to get down to some tweaking to where I can disable pll overvoltage (crappy chip, but still 4.5 shouldn't need that setting).

This is totally true. No sense in spending extra money for unneeded features. Sometimes it's good to save money, you know?

Haha yeah, it's the only reason I upgraded from my phenom ii x4, because the phenom was far too slow for video transcoding and back then I read how the new SB procs were superior to its predecessors (Nehalem) in regards to transcoding and editing videos. I also dug up that the 2600K was close in performance to the mighty 98/90x, so obviously it was the beat option for me. Now, I totally am happy with my choice. Times waiting for my video to encode or transcode have seriously shrunk to the point of me justify the added $100 quite easily.

Now I guess it's time to get to tweaking this bad boy a bit more, eh?

Is that because the beta has issues on your particular setup or just because you're simply against flashing to betas?

I really don't want to mess with the betas at the moment, as I'm new to all of this and I don't have time right now to troubleshoot.

Finished my build today, fresh OS install and no hickups. I first want to say that I LOVE my new Fractal XL case. It has by far the best cable organization options out of any case I've owned. It is also pretty much silent. I can't hear it at all, especially since I have it plugged into my TV and I sit 8 feet away on the couch. Fans are quiet and pull enough air to keep the case cool. I still need to clean up a few fan cables, but otherwise I love it. The board was a very easy install, recognized my 16gb of ripjaws ram with no need for tweaking. 212_ keeps my proc nice and cool. Idles around 28-30c with only one fan installed.

I'm running p95 all night at stock settings, so I will attempt a 4.0gHz OC tomorrow.

My one question is, my cheap MS wireless mouse doesn't work very well in the uefi bios. Not a huge deal because I've never had the luxury of mouse support in bios before. It just kinda hovers in the corner and it doesn't really work at all.

I've upped a few pics. I will take some more tomorrow during the day.

Cable organization attempt #1(having another go tomorrow to clean up fan cables)


mmmm

Is it plugged into a USB2.0 port??
As USB3.0 is only for storage, not mouse and keyboard
