In few years you'll be missing sandy oc'ing threads

I have to say, I agree. The last 2 generations of intel CPUs have been a bit too easy to OC. I dont mind having 4.5+ghz CPUs and such, in fact its great for render farming (I have 4 i7s - dominate render times), but its just not FUN.

OC'ing the 2600k is basically 3 numers: Mult, Bus and voltage. And the bus can be left alone for the majority of the time.

10. Bump the mult up by 1
20. is it stable? Yes - goto 1, no goto 3
30. Bump voltage by 0.05v, goto 2

Meh. Too easy. 775 had challege. Bumping the FSB by just a tiny bit, messing with ram ratios, etc... much more exciting, and much more fine tweaking.

Their is correct. It is talking about intel's chip (intel and their [its so easy a caveman could do it (=chip)], not saying "intel, and they are so easy..."


I wish I would have had the chance to play with an older chip. By the time I fianally got around to building a computer (had been wanting to for years but every time I was about to order, something came up) SB was out and it was too good to pass up. I had read up about overclocking and was really excited to try it. I like that sort of thing (I also play with cars ) But it destroys everything I throw at it at stock settings and its not really a challenge, so whats the point? I have it at stock right now as nothing I do stresses it.

Pffff, "still on 1366"? "still on 775"? Take a look at my sig rig - I'm UPGRADING to 775 only NOW; been using s478 for the past 6+ years Expect a 775 OC thread in a couple of weeks (if I manage to mess something up, that is)

*ahem*
*is riding on i3+P55 combo*

It was easier to get my i3 stable than my E2160 or my E4500, but yea, the C2D mobo i use sucks for OCing, and even my OC's are almost miracles

thats what its all about ^
took me many months of learning to get those reuslts. paid off though.

I love 775 so much I have had 20+ CPU's and over like 12 high end boards

still rocking the E8600 in the rampage at 4.4 (550x8) (this mobo is almost as easy to use as 1366 its that good with FSB)

and for those who think 1156 is BORING, try pushing BCLK and you will find there is a little more to it that meets the eye....ever wonder why there was no IMC multi in the BIOS? (hint hint BCLK *cough*starbomber*cough*)

Yeah I love mine to but it in no way can compete with SB, The reason it is so much is just old tech pricing, I asked that very same question and got a really good answer from someone on OCN but can't remember his exact words as I looked at it as most would it is older so should be getting cheaper but that is not the way of computer parts it seems, as I see even old AMD xp chips are the same price now as new phenom, but here is the funny part try to sell your older chip and you wont get $.02 for it lol. Hell the are selling GTX260's on ebay brand new for 2 and 300 bucks weird is it not? I still use my old Q9550 proudly as my second rig and it games highly well even keeps up with new games just as my SIG rig does but with out DX11, I still feel if I switched cards that it would out do my AMD in some ways but not in benchmarks as the LGA775 just does not score as high as the X4 AMD but it holds its head up high and still is a great chip to own and use as a every day gamer
