Yep, I wont be changing anytime soon, sure its just as powerfull as x58 in most applications and uses much less juice as long as you dont need more pcie bandwidth or tripple channel ram there really isnt any difference. 5GHz 1155 is just a showoff lol.

I intend to watercool this p55 beast and get the most out of it for years to come

EVGA P55 FTW, or maybe I'm just biased.

^this^

All the excitement is gone since 1156's place in the sun went dark so quickly...at least lynnfield was one of intel's last 'pure' processors

I upgraded from a 939 4200+ X2 to my sig rig. My next upgrade will occur when I can again reasonably get that factor of performance increase. 8 core server CPUs are readily available, with 10 cores coming soon. I imagine that in a couple of years 8 cores will be mainstream.

Should say 1156 not p55.
Its still my favourite platform though.
Iv had many i3s and i5s with diff systems, an i7 860 and just today dropped an ES 875k into my ITX monster. Ill be sticking around for a while
Had a golden i5 750, a crap i5 760, 4 average i3 530's/540's. Great clocking i7 860 (3.8ghz @ 1.17v)
Will be OCing latest purchase soon

Even after I picked up my Sandy Bridge, I couldn't bring myself to sell my 870 and my Maximus III Formula, so I just spent more money on a few more components and built a second computer for myself.

Hell yea, i'm still kicking. I couldn't be happier, I love my chip and mobo. I don't see myself changing platforms anytime soon, Ivy Bridge maybe; but probably well after that. Call me cheap, but I just like to make the most of my hardware.
