I'm with Markus on this one. I see the parts listed and what's on it, and if that's how you can explain the capabilities of the board..well then I suppose my question might be a little too vague. Let me clear it up a smidgen:

I just upgraded from an AMD 1035T 2.6ghz on an OEM mobo. When I had that getup, I would play a game (right now Lord of the Rings Online) and it would stutter some here and there...wouldnt run smoothly no matter what scenario I was in. When I monitored my CPU usage, it was peaking at 95-100%. I chalked up my issue to my hardware configuration. After trying to polish the 1035turd as much as I could, I only came out with about a matte finish. So I got the I5 and the mobo in question.

Now, my question is this: Will I see my pooter run more efficiently? Will it still run at 100% based on the hardware I have in my sig?

Well, there's Intel Smart Response Technology which allows you to use an SSD up to 64GB as a cache.

If you update to the latest bios from asus (New one this august) you can use Intel Rapid Storage Technology too which is a feature coming on the new boards in 2012 (Z77 etc.)

You can also use virtu for video encoding and I bet later down the road the boards will get another bios update to support PCI 3.0 and Ivy Bridge cpus.

I don't get why people say Z68 is a waste of money over P67 since here in Denmark the price is the same, if not P67 is more expendsive by a few cents..

I'm not sure how to set a drive up to store just cache only. I suppose storage might be my next project...though I don't download that much (primarily because I dont know what kind of torrent..? site to use if any)

It's a solid mobo. You mentioned all you care about is 4ghz on the cpu ... I managed to undervolt my cpu and get 4ghz stable on stock cooling. Though I may have a cherry 2500k. As for all the other bells and whistles like the ssd cache, don't really care about them and would go full ssd boot drive before some sort of hybrid anyway.

Sheesh. What kind of temps can this processor sit at without running a risk of overheating? I know anything over 62C for an AMD is very risky...this is my first Intel

People were saying 85c in my other thread is fine (load). No idea though. The lga 1155 adapter for my cpu waterblock should be coming in a couple days, after that it should never see temps anywhere close to that while under water. That's when I'm really going to push this thing, lol.

TJmax for sandybridge cpu's is 98 degrees clecius
If you stay under 90 degrees in heavy stress testing your fine.

With normal use and gaming you prolly wont go over 70 degrees then.

Mine heats up to 72 degrees in stress testing, never brake 60 when gaming
