It is built more or less, I'm just tweaking and taking pictures now.

The P6T6 is very impressive and I chose it over the rampage and the P6T for stability reasons. It's a WS standard mobo with reliability with all the features and more than it's substitutes.

I'm still using my old system until I get enough time to finish this build.

What's the reason for going 12GB ?. 6GB is the so called 'sweet spot' for i7 systems.

Congrats! How did you get to 4.1 stable? I seem to peak at 4.0 without massive voltage.

Are you running with HT on or off?

Thanks!

You guys better aim for a higher OC than that to spend ~+700 than a 920 -_-, go for 4.4-4.6

My noob assessment is 4.0 seems to be some type of limit that requires serious voltage or other settings to get past. There does not seem to be much difference between the 965 and 920 in this area. You may be able to get to 4.0 with less voltage with the 965 but not clear how to get much past 4.0.

I don't seem to be limited by temps so i suspect there are some other settings or configurations that will get you there.

I don't think I'm going to be able to get more than 4.2Ghz on my i7 920 as I cannot lower the QPI multiplier anymore. With the base clock at 210 I think the QPI is already being pushed as far as I can take it.

Ya 4.2 seems to be about the max on 920s "Stable" within acceptable 24/7 voltage ranges; I've even backed off mine a bit to 4.0 from 4.2 because I didn't want to run 1.45 all the time.
