Sorry, I thought I did but may have had too many threads/windows open & confused myself. My bad.

these processors work in reverse with cold, believe me its giving me and a lot of peopel headaches, cold negativly impacts the processor for sandybridge, i hope intel gets the ******* **** togehter for ivy bridge.

Bizzarro.

When you say "cold" do you mean sub-ambient, or WCing...or can you say as of now?

As i said before. If i had built a 950 rig like i had originally planned this thread wouldn't exist.
The thread crapping in here is pretty funny. Suggestion: Put "Stock Speeds" in the title and maybe also list them in the test setups. That should shut people up for you. Honestly, this is what I wanted to see and thanks for posting it up.

Performance. At 4.9 ~ 5.1Ghz, the i7 2600 is going to be the fastest kid on the block.
Complete Conjecture. The original reviews/previews for the 980X all said you can run it at 5.0ghz+. It turned out to be bogus and most can't pass 4.4ghz. Until these things are out on the open market will we find out how they statisically rank (1 or 2 previews of chips that may be better than average are not proof).

This is true. Even in most benchmarks the difference is neglible. What you don't state is that it is expected that the IMC will allow higher stock speeds for ram and thus 2000mhz+ ram may be a reality unlike Core i7 9x0 setups (without going a little nuts on VTT).

This is again conjecture. As it sits now, the 2600K aren't really performing much better than the 9x0 series, and the viability with tri-sli scaling may not be as good as the 9x0 series has proven to be.

Everyone of those systems were different, 3.8 to 4.1ghz stable. Only a handful were stable at 4Ghz. And I am talking 24/7 Solidworks 2011 rendering.
How about I tell you that like Sin's comment a few posts back, I have personally built 20+ systems using the core 9x0 series and ALL of them have stabilized at 4.0ghz or higher. The worst chip I have worked with still was fully stabilized at 4.0ghz with 1.39v. (Prime95 Small FTTs 12hrs, Prime95 Large FTTs 12hrs, Prime95 Blend 24hrs, LinX 200runs All Memory(~5.2gb) ~12hrs) That is my stability standard for my customers and all must pass it. Then I do a dummy test and play around on it for a day or so just to see if anything goes wrong in real life testing.

He's not. Look at the first post. He doesn't even give an opinion or list of results with percentages that could be skewed due to clock difference. It is very clearly information only.

Good for you. I would have gotten more.

Imagine the resell value when Ivy bridge hits and socket 1155 won't even support the enthusiast chips or 6 core CPUs



Really, SandyBridge should be great for new builds or upgrading from a Core 2, but anyone with a Core i7 honestly would probablly skip it especially if they have a multi-gpu setup.

By the time games actually use this kind of processing power there will be something better just around the corner. I just bought a 950, sold an e8500 for $140 and the 950 was literally a $60 upgrade. Sole 4GB DDR2800 ram for $60 and bought a 6GB DDR3 kit for $60 AR. I'll sidegrade up when games actually need the processing power.

I haven't opened the 950 yet and can return it however. But the 950 was $199, and the 2600k I'm guessing will be a bit more expensive? Hmmmm...

Yes 2600k around $325

I think my Phenom II at 4.4Ghz just wreaked your life.

Now do it with HT off since it's a performance loss in games.

Haha oh god that was funny.
