Want to switch to Intel but... - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Why not wait for the enthusiast sandy bridge cpus? They are scheduled to release November 14th this year but I could imagine intel delaying that now since the crapdozer failed.

Tell you what, buy me a 2600k and a nice high end mobo to go with it, and ill give you my 920 and ud5. then you can fiddle with stuff all you like and i can spend more time tweaking my cooling and less time tweaking my OC.

Overclocking is pretty boring and easy, not sure what all the fuss is.

Overclocking to ~4.6 is easy and mindless. Overclocking past that, not so much.
You can either:
A: Buy a good water cooling setup and go nuts.
B: Wait for SB-E (if its in your budget, I believe the locked one should still be BCLK overclockable) or Ivy (but I'm not sure if its similar to SB overclocking).
