I can get a 3820 at micro center for $250, which is a great price IMO.

In a word: NO

It's generally agreed that few games can even make effective use of hyperthreading, which is why for gaming, the 2500K is pretty much king of the hill.

Games still respond best to clock speed, and the 2500K clocks about as good as it gets, and without hyperthreading, it does so with slightly less heat, so for the same cooling capability, you make get another few MHz.

X79 is all around considerably more expensive than its dual channel siblings, with only a few percent more performance in most instances, and none of it in the gaming realm so far.

Darlene

Except X79 also has the ability to for better multi-GPU setups. 99% of the 1155 boards out there will only do 16x8x8 (there's a couple of Asrock boards that do 16x16x8, through some kind of onboard chip restructuring) whereas X79 boards will dual multi GPU setups at 16x16x16 natively.

I love my 3820. No need to overclock it just yet either.

Buy the Samsung low-profile RAM, not only is it cheap, it OC's like a monster. I OC'd mine to 9-9-9-24 1T and the board didn't even bat a lash at it. There's still headroom to do more when I have the time to get to it.

As well, you can buy dual channel kits and run them on quad channel slots. There's benchmarks out there showing that Quad Channel RAM is really just a gimmick, like Triple Channel, and even slows down throughput in many instances, so just go with Dual Channel.

I already have my vengeance, so I'm trying to keep it tongue.gif
got 16gb for 60 on sale at newegg.

Also, i'll check your log in a bit, but does anyone know of any clearance issues with a SR1 push/pull and the rampage lineup?
Thanks

Yeah I'm going from a C2Q6600, so ANYTHING is an upgrade for me. I'm set on 2011, since I like to have my PC's last as long as I can make them last (my last one lasted 4.5 years) and if the 2011 socket isnt going to be done like 1155 is, I feel better going that route and allowing myself a possible future upgrade in the CPU dept.

Would like to share this real easy mod with all the 810 owners. This mod allows you to use two fans to keep your cards nice and cool while using only one hd cage.

Hope you guys like it biggrin.gif

That is a good idea. probably go a little further and make a mounting system for both fans to look nicer.

They said they're not making Ivy bridge-E so Sandybridge-E might be the last of the 2011, unless Haswell/Haswell-E uses the same socket.

From Wikipedia, Haswell will be using 1150 socket

Perhaps the most practical plan is to have a rad that likes mid to high speed fans, set it up with push - pull configuration, (which increases efficiency at less than optimal fan speeds) and use a fan controller. That let's you dial in the decibel / performance level that you need on the fly.
Go thru the build logs and research what rads had what issues, with rads for 140 fans, some of the full thickness (60mm) had issues fitting the inside 25mm thick fans, depending on mobo layout.
Narrower rads for 120 fans seemed to have less issues, but not total immunity.
I can not emphasize enough how much you can learn from researching the build logs for what guys have used and what they had to do to make it work, and what you may want to avoid.
Darlene

Well it.does seem like push pull would be best but.what is.the thickest 360 read I can fit with that? Is there somewhere where all build logs for this case are or just scattered through the thread?

Koolertek has the ex360 for 60 dollars which I was thinking about using with push pull...

I am fairly certain I read somewhere that there was going to be a Ivy Bridge-E, but it was delayed from Q4 2012 to Q2/Q3 2013. I can't find the article I read it from currently, but I will link it when I do find it. However we won't know for certain until Intel actually says anything.
