Pulled the trigger a bought the i72600K Sandy Bridge

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
After having nothing but poor game performance on the AMD FX-8150 even after all overclocks and bios updates etc.. I finally
pulled everything apart last night and listed the 8150fx on ebay as well as Nvidia 560ti and a Corsair GS600 power supply. Got an
RMA from Newegg for Crosshair V. I ended up purchasing the i72600K Sandy Bridge, an Asus IV Extreme Z ROG (just in case I decide to go nut with Sli/Crossfire) and a Corsair H100 Cooler. I can't wait to get this baby in and everything installed to see how well Sandy Bridge works with my flight sims and my ATI 7970. I appreciate everyone who helped me in previous post etc.. Many thanks to all on Overclock.net truly awesome people biggrin.gif

Thanks! I will definitely be trying Ivy bridge when it comes out as well though it will be backwards compatible with the Z68 chipset
I did read an article that upgrading your MB and Chipset will be required for taking advantage of more features. I'll let it roll for a while
until all the testing is done. I know that Sandy is time tested and proven thumb.gif
