    you should have waited for piledriver, amd might be able to pull something big and change the tide
  • 4% (2)
    you should have just kept your AMD rig

Long time fan of AMD,but i was hugely disappointed with Bulldozer, and i doubt that the upcoming piledriver will be able to compete with intel's ivy bridge so i decided to ditch my 3 months old AMD rig. i sold the crosshair v mobo, phenom ii x4 970 BE, HAF X case, and hyper 612 heatsink, all that for only 260 dollars. sorry amd, can't resist going to the dark side anymore, their CPU's are just way too awesome than yours.

got online last night and ordered maximus gene-z/gen3 mobo, fractal design arc mini case, and a cheap ass intel celeron g530 CPU, all from newegg, that CPU is just a place holder till ivy bridge thumb.gif

i went to newegg this morning and picked my orders up, then went home excited biggrin.gif

UPDATE!

the two little devils! look closely, the one on the left has a rounded edges. the one on the right has sharp edges, has a brushed aluminum finish, and is slightly heavier.
does anybody know whats going on? i benched both of it using ATTO and crystal disk mark, results are similar to both drives. firmware are the same.

more comparison, the round edged one is now on the right and the brushed finish is on the left

Dude. The 2500k is just as good for gaming, as most games don't even take
control of 3-4 threads at any given time. I have owned both an i7 and i5, I can
honestly say that the i5 in some cases actually gave me BETTER performance.
Though i never do any video editing or encoding, i know the i7 would out preform there.


And to the OP, awesome wire tuck man. i really need to stop being lazy and wire tuck mine!
Haha, i was just so excited when my 2500k, PSU and GTX460 came in.. I couldn't wait to
start stress testing!

Definitely a very clean build. How you digging the i5?
