Exploring all my options...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey all and yes i know what my name is but never mind that since BD was a fail I am currently looking at various upgrade options now i have read that it makes no sense to get a 2600k over the 2500k unless you're doing video encoding etc.

I will not be doing those things so i guess the 2500k is the one for me. Now what board should i buy with the 2500k? I will be overclocking the chip (24/7) also what RAM should i get or can i keep my 1600mhz memory that i have right now and then upgrade the ram later.

You guys can feel free to give me other opinions as well, oh and will my hyper 212+ be enough to cool the chip?

You can keep your ram for the time being if you'd like...

As for OC boards, you'll get a lot of feedback for

and some others... all depends what you want exactly from your board.

I was thinking about a 1090t or the 1100t but honestly i want my next upgrade to really pack some punch and AMD is not doing that.

Yep, it's enough. I have three of them and they're all cooling 2500k cpus. As far as motherboards, Fry's is selling the P8P67 Evo for $149 after rebate. They're also selling the Hyper 212+ for $19.99.
