AMD is finicky, Intel has never given me issues lol

Any is fine, check your QVL if you are really concerned.

You will be good, it will fit fine.
2600k
Asus P8Z68-V Gen 3
8-16gb of G.skill Ripjaws x 1600 or 1866 RAM

this will be a great combo too but i dont think the price difference between the 2600k vs 2700k warrants the small diference in performance so go a 2600k.

RAM, i would have to say i love my G.Skill DDR3 1600 2 x [2 x 4GB kits] CL8 sticks thumb.gif

Would that work on that board? It says it supports it, but is there a ram divider that goes that high, or is it through FSB overclocking after 1600mhz.

Sandy Bridge builds aren' t that pricey.
1366 LGA is still beast but if I was building today I'd shoot for a 2600k/2700k @ 4.5-5.0Ghz.

G.SKILL Sniper's are great RAM. i would say you shouldnt have any issues running them on and SB mobo. flip through these forums for peace of mind smile.gif

just get the cheapest 1600mhz memory you can find, there is really 0 difference outside benchmarks

Thanks for the links. This has turned from my "what chip to buy" thread to my "SB overclocking familiarization thread". Ive learned a lot so far. Can someone tell me the max temps and voltages for the 2600k? What are the best numbers for a good 24/7 overclock, say 4.3 to 4.4?

Also, does anyone know of any 1600 mhz ram that runs at 1t instead of 2t? So far both types I have decided on were 2t. In the end, its not a deal breaker, just a bench mark raiser thumb.gif but hey thats why most of us are here

If you're attracted to tri-channel why not wait for quad-channel?

Well when it comes down to it Id like to make a change now, but the x79 prices are just so high. Going with the 3930k, quad channel ram, and board, will run me at least 900 bucks.

Refer to this thread for that: www.overclock.net/t/968053/official-the-sandy-stable-club-guides-voltages-temps-bios-templates-inc-spreadsheet/
I go by the 1.52v max and 85C on the cores during prime 95. But you may want/need below 1.4-.145 for 24/7.
Post in the thread above and you should get some good help. I got to 5GHz easy lol. I am almost guaranteeing you will be able to get 4.5GHz 24/7 at least.

Just set it to that in the UEFI and you shouldn't have any issues at stock smile.gif
