I wasn't wanting something so bright that nothing else could be seen, but I'm curious to see how yours turns out too. Best of luck thumb.gif

lol yea that is what I am worried about but i will be sanding down the led's to get the light to diffuse more so that will knock down the brightness, just didn't want hot spots and dark spots in the grills of the case

Looks like it much ado about nothing. Oh how they tease, but it did give me some relief.

http://news.softpedia.com/news/Intel-Still-on-Track-for-Spring-2012-Launch-of-Ivy-Bridge-CPUs-253389.shtml

On a different note, does anybody know if ASRock is making a Z77 motherboard? I can't seem to find anything about Z77 motherboards except by Biostar, ECS, MSI, Zotac, & Gigabyte.
Also, nice pics galbrecht71. I'm jealous that you get to start your build now.

Mr. Webb,

I am becoming extremely impressed with your ideas and comment to helping us solve these problems with very innovative and creative solutions. Rep up.

Except for Gigabyte, All these other companies are not top sellers. its good for them to get there name in the press early before the big boys jump in and make them sink to the bottom of the Big Internet Ocean.

Yes. Virginia, there is a AsRock Z77 board. They are already built and ready for production. But they are waiting for the UNKNOWN Computer King to allow them to say start selling them. I think they need to sell more 68 Chipset Mobos before they let loose.

I bought 2011 Lga. There are only 2 chips right now ready for it. And as far as I know Intel is not ready yet to let go of their Ivy Bridge yet.

But the answer is if ASUS intends to introduce a Z77 board then ASRock already has a nice one built with all the bells and whistles at a great price.

Here is a great way to look at ASRock. ASUS uses ASRock to introduce the newest technology. If something goes wrong ASRock is not that hurt and ASUS is clean as a White Driven Snow.

is the Z77 board really that good?

someone mentioned the intelburn. does this test both your cpu and gpu together? and can you stop on the mark if things start to over heat? sorry for the noob question.

Boomstick did you get your game going?

Really from my Reading the PCIe 3.0 connections and more USB 3.0s and even a different plug for the new usb 3s that look like a Sata Plug but bigger. The biggest difference in the Oboard Video Chip that will be with the new intel 1155 type motherboards. They will probably have a Tegra drop on Nvidia graphics interface or they will feel the need to do their own Intel onboard Video chip design.. Not sure on that..

I hear ya Big Guy.. You will be getting your Wish in April. Intel is making so much money from the Bulldozer debachel that they are delaying their new Profit Puller for later..

Intel would feed technology to people from an Eyedropper if AMD was not in the Processor Biz.

It's funny. AMD has been Improving Intel chips and boards ever since the PIII

Boomstick did you get your game going?

IBT just tests the CPU, its just an easy gui for linkpack made by Intel. OCCT has a pre-setup test that uses Linpack and a version of furmark that is easy to use. It also has cupid's HWmonitor built in to monitor your temps and voltages. And yes its easy to stop and can be setup to stop at any temp you want. Then it makes these really nice graphs for you after you stop the test. The only draw back to using OCCT like this, is it runs Linpack on all your cores. This makes furmark and Linpack fight over your CPU usage, so your GPU will not run at 100% all the time. For this reason I use Prime95 and Furmak and run one less thread on Prime than I have cores. Furmark will max out one core and your GPU's to 100% This way your entire rig is maxed out 100% for how ever long you want to run it, making sure that any V-Drop from having both CPU and GPU running hard won't kill your OC and it is a good way to tell if your PSU can handle your system. If you have X-Fire or SLI (I think) you have to run Furmark or OCCT in full screen or only one GPU will work. I hope I covered everything, lol.

Now if AMD can get back to the Athlon 64 X2 days again, we would have a great thing going for us on the buyers end. That was the only reason Intel came out with the Core Duo's. I hope Intel learned and will not stagnate the CPU marked again. They came very close to being where AMD is right now.

Actually they do have an Ivy bridges competetor coming out soon..

338
When AMD came out with the 64 bit chip that bumped their game


400

but when AMD came out with the 64 X 2 they were still stuck with the 478 P4's
354

AMD is not dead but it does need to change its outsourcing of their R and D.

356400

But Qualcomm and NVidia may also be getting into the fight as well.
