$179 Corei7 960 at MC..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Thinking about picking up a Corei7 960 at Microcenter and replacing my i7 920. Nothing special about my 920 at 4ghz and needing 1.31 volts and LLC on. Anything around 4.2ghz requires too many volts for my taste. I'm hoping that a higher binned chip with a higher multi will run a little cooler with less volts.. But, I really have no idea. Could just be luck of the draw
Will be my last upgrade on my sig rig (maybe an SSD) before going Ivy..
