What is my Bottleneck? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just thought I would give everyone a bit of a status update.

Put the i7-870 in tonight and had some major issues that I honestly couldn't figure out. It was booting up and then crashing 5min into being on, it also seemed to of uninstalled my graphics driver for my 760GTX?? I kind of put this down to the graphics driver needing to be reinstalled in order to adapt to the new CPU.. seems to of fixed it.

Also reinstalled mainboard drivers at the same time just incase.

Will see how I go now... but on the performance front - great success! grabbed another easy 10 fps in one benchmark, about a 40% increase in my 3DMARK score and hopefully even more good stuff to come. I think I will get a CPU Cooler though as this thing is idling at 40c and under load hitting 60c on stock clocks, Just don't trust the old intel stocker anymore.

Thanks for all your help!
