Get some memory clocking done on the 860. smile.gif

And if you've got a good clarkie they're a lot of fun, mine managed 5.06GHz for benching but it needed a lot of voltage to do it. (like 1.7V axesmiley.png)
I got 4.6GHz stable at 1.568V but my chip was pretty terrible voltage-wise.

Edit: And I traded to the Q6600 and water cooling setup I'm on now from an i3 540 so I understand why you did it.
I'd rather have a competitive but slightly less good chip than a poor example of a better chip. tongue.gif

Well if i remember Correct Core i7 920, X58 MB sell ~ $200. 4GB DDR3 is like $15 At most. You got a fair price. In reality its a beast of a System.

Nope the CPU you sold got your heck of a deal waiting for ivy. It's funny you mention building an AMD rig just for fun I was looking at the prices and debated doing this myself. If I get bored of it I can always sell it for cheap.

I sold my 860 to go to the 2500k actually.

Two boards that I had the 860 in couldn't get it stable over 3.8 without going over 1.4v.

My 2500k runs at 4.5 on 1.32v stable.

Thankfully, Lynnfields don't have that kind of awful power consumption. At the same clocks, they may be anywhere from 25-40w less than it's sibling, an X58 system. Not having a Northbridge helps a lot when it comes to power consumption.

Haven't ran into a game yet that my (3.55ghz) Lynnfield can't handle, so I'm sure you won't notice the difference. And if you're using multi-threaded tasks, you may even beat the 2500k if you go for more like 4+ ghz.

Sounds like bad luck. My i5 is stable at 3.55 with stock voltage (1.136v) and can do 3.8 with just a tiny bump. 'Silicon lottery' as they say.
