2. It has to fit in my case.
3. I'm very curious about Bulldozer. I would not be surprised to see their foray into new architecture succeed.
Whoa. That's pretty hot. What are your BIOS settings at? Perhaps I can halp.

1. Did you get the Swan M10's or whatever? Those look really nice. Do they come in black, though?
2. You have the same case as I, just a bit bigger. It'll fit. lol.
3. I have little faith in it. I want it to succeed and beat Intel, I really do. But I just don't think it'll happen. They've been very careful to only speak of how it competes against current gen/previous chips, not how it'll perform against newer stuff.

That was just using the AI Tweaker that ASUS BIOS automatically has. I'm pretty sure it's stock BIOS, too. Might look into that.

1. Yes. They look awesome and I figured I shouldn't copy your peripherals exactly .
2. I know the archon will fit. Don't think Silver Arrow does, though. That and Thermalright's price-performance isn't great. I suppose that's what you get for top quality.
3. I really want it to win too, but you're right about their caution. It might just be that they can't compare it since SB is now unavailable . Of course, AMD is known for their secrecy before launch, yes?

Yeah, setting things on auto is easy, but not always the best option.

1. What else do you have that I have? o.o
2. It probably will. That's true about their Priceerformance. I paid $90 after shipping for my Archon. I don't regret it, though. It's still beastly. Pretty quiet.
3. Lol. I dunno, man. I'm waiting to see what happens.

Why aren't you on my friends list on Steam yet?

So that's about a 25% increase? Very nice. Next time I run benches, I should compare stock runs to max OC. Can you not get your Mem clock higher? I got up to 1200MHz, and I haven't actually tried pushing it further. Could actually cap out higher.

Yeah, these scale really well when you OC.

Done.
Push your mem higher. I want to see how far it can go.
My guess is probably ~1250 (which will make your memory at 5GHz, btw)

I couldn't get pass 1150 in OCCT without seeing artifacts..Other people seem to be having better luck I guess...Then again Occt has been buggy for me lately. I'll try a different stability test.
