You 1366 guys are so whiney. lachen.gifbiggrin.gif

Your a bit off with your clock speeds there, http://www.anandtech.com/show/3871/the-sandy-bridge-preview-three-wins-in-a-row , dont really care much, just stating the facts.

Thank you for the correction. Those numbers were from off the top of my head

2500K - 3.3Ghz, 3.7Ghz Turbo
2600K - 3.4Ghz, 3.8Ghz Turbo

No problem . At any rate, @OP, if your planning on upgrading to a SB setup, wait till it launches to see the actual real world performance difference. In the meantime, if you find a Q9550 for a good deal, that would be a nice upgrade for you.

Oh because DDR3 2200 is so inexpensive and very easy to find. The whole point of overclocking is buying something that runs slower and make it run faster...I don't know about you but I would rather buy some 1333 ram and making it run at 2200 then pay more for 2200 ram.

You sandy bridge guys really like pushing your opinions on other people huh? Oh well, you keep believing your wrong opinion.

The TURBO stock clock is 3.7 for the 2500K. your numbers are QUITE a bit off.

The E8400 overclocks pretty well, but not like an i7. Why would you think that Sandy Bridge will be a step BACK from overclocking? Obviously Sandy Bridge will overclock to a higher frequency than an E8400. I don't think this is debatable.

You're an idiot. There is a reason why people spend MORE on K versions (not talking about Sandy Bridge K versions) and Extreme Editions of chips. It is for the ability to raise the multiplier because it is a FAR better way to overclock.

You need to use some common sense here buddy.

You can make 1333 RAM run at 2200?

Sorry I was quickly looking at the wiki page and read the wrong numbers, my bad there buddy. I made a mistake

So you would rather have JUST your cpu's clocks faster rather then your whole system? Sounds like you're the idiot to me. Because thats what you get when you overclock using a multiplier. People spend more on a K version because it is easier to overclock and you can push your CPU's clocks higher then a normal chip...

Maybe I should have been more specific, its hard to find DDR3 2200 that isn't unstable as hell without having insanely high latencies.

Anyway all of this is besides the point, my opinion still stands. Sandy Bridges will not be worth it to me, at least not the mainstream chips. For all you people who follow the release of sandy bridges like it's your damn religion, sucks for you. Your about to invest into a mainstream platform and are going to be pretty upset with LGA 2011 comes out

Ok, pushing 1333 to 2200 Mhz is a little far fetched, I'll admit that. But you get what I'm saying, I would rather buy cheaper ram and overclock it then buy more expensive ram.

You alluded too overclocking the Bclk making the uncore run faster. What makes you think sandy bridge won't have multipliers to push the uncore higher?
