Rampage is a great board, but its also overpriced. For P55 gigabyte has another great ocing board. The P55m-UD4.

The Gene will probably net you the better oc though.
yup i do need a modular PSU

i dunno how the Coolit ECO ALC 92 will perform though its basically a h50/ECO ALC but a shrunken rad down to 92mm so I'm going to strap some high CFM fans for a push pull onto it, but i'm still not sure what temps i'm gonna get

So am I. However, I'm looking at it from the perspective of an overclocker.

Clock for clock, the 920 is usually faster. Since they can reach similar clocks on similar cooling, the 920 is usually faster.

The 1090T is undoubtedly faster stock. So what? Who on OCN is going to get an i7 920 and not overclock it?

I'm not discounting the results of Cinebench, but it is only one test amongst many.

especially with a good oc. and yes, i need a international currency conversion dunce cap.

7k USD is 54546.8713 hong kong dollars according to google.

7500 hong kong dollars is also 962.4750USD so thats a good deal atleast for here.

ok so heres my build please tell me if its compatiable

i7 920 or 930 depending on whats available
Asus Rampage II Gene
Corsair HX650w~~~will that be enough for an i7 and a 5850?
2x3GB Mushkin Blackline Enhanced DDR3-1600 I think its CL7 or 9 forgot
OR
if my friend can't get that off the the egg then
2x3GB OCZ Gold Edition Low voltage kit DDR3 1600 (i heard OCZ got loads of issues with their RAM will it be ok?)
CoolIT ECO ALC 92 for cooling
post #36 of 38
I haven't had a problem with OCZ memory. The bonus on OCZ and Mushkin are their lifetime warranties. I'm not sure how that applies to a HK rma. No clue if either have compatibility issues with that specific board. I doubt it though. OCZ is probably cheaper, but I would look into which if eithers lifetime warranties include HK.

I went with the 1055T.

I think you need need to honestly ask yourself how much processor-intensive work your really do, and how much time a more expensive setup will really save you in the long run. I mean, even if you're crunching a video a day you're not really saving a whole lot of time. Same goes for rendering in AutoCAD.

Keep it simple, unless you're an honest-to-god professional in one of those fields that really benefits the faster processor.

Edit: Oops, looks like you've chosen already. My bad.
