Talk me into buying SB + questions.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ive had my AMD setup for a while now, just want a change for a little while.

I have a Micro Center near by so I would get the 2500k at the best price.

I only game and create DVD's so HT wont be needed/used.

I was thinking the 2500k with the ASUS P8P67 Pro.

Will my ram work with setup?

I heard about only having 1.5v and the kit i have is 1.65.

Thanks.

I am switching from AMD to Intel as well, as the SB processors seemed to have made overclocking easy.

As far as the RAM goes, in my research I have found that 1.5 is optimal, but 1.65 will work fine as they are rated to 1.65. You may not get the 1600 speed, as it may do 1333 at 1.5v.

The P8P67 is a very popular board, as it has many features and the price is good.

1.65v is compatible, however it's a shoot and miss type thing. Intel recommends you go no higher than 1.57v on 1155 SB. However, people say they've never encountered any issues running 1.65v on 1155 SB. It's up to you.

1.65v for the ram controller will lead to degradation in the long term according to an intel rep I spoke to.
