Just built my first sandybridge set up and WOW

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok admittedly ive been a little skeptical of all the hype surrounding the new sandybridge processors. Theres always hype like this when new processors are released but WOW

Ive had a 930 -4ghz and a 1090t -4.2ghz so I wasnt expecting anything spetacular out of it but ill have to admit Im throughly impressed with what Intel brought to the table with these processors.

The ease of OC on these is retarded 4.5ghz was done with no voltage bump and took all of 10 sec. Managing a 7.9 WEI with everything but the cpu it was a 7.8 was pretty nice as well

Also im sure what helped wow me was the vertex 3 sdd that was also installed

system specs
gigabyte z68 mobo
2600k
8gb Mushkin Blackline 1866
Vertex 3 120gb
MSI GTX 480
Corsair TX650 V2

On a side note the customer was throughly pleased as he was comming from a netbook and the fastest computer he had used was a dual core athlon rig lol
