do you have link to your review?
yes, this chip needs a huge step of vCC over 4600mhz ... too much for the stock intel heatsink!!!!

edit: about the review, later or maybe tomorrow we release it, and obviously i'll link it here

That's awesome, I am covering most of those benchmarks, and making a master database of real word user results, as well as review site results, can you PM your results, and I will add them to the main database.

In a few days, I will show everybody what I'm doing with these results, and we will finally have a clear picture of which is the best chip clock for clock, and have a Master Database with as many processors as possible.

I'll look into, thank you Saint19 I appreciate it man, as for stretching my limit 2010rig, I'll see

Here it is:

$1160 delivered for everything except CPU+Mobo, I will pass on the extra GTX 470 for now man heck I'm thinking maybe even sell it and get a GTX580.

This leaves me with $850+ extending my budget by $200-300 means I have $1100 roughly to spend on just the Mobo+CPU.

I decided to not get the extreme motherboard btw, I'm now Looking at the two following boards:

http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_I...ccl&templete=2

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=3646#sp


So yep so far I'm happy as hell and this is with the NZXT Phantom case, as I have seen many videos as well as reviews and I love the case.

Are you sure I only need a i5 2500k? as far as gaming goes+ some cpu intensive tasks?

The ram I selected is good enough right? I don't want to be held back by cheaping out on the ram.

UPDATE: Wow man Crucial website has expensive as hell drives, I don't think I'm willing to spend $300 only other drive that is cheap on the site is 60GB.

Yeah man, the 2500k is great for gaming, besides gaming what else will you use your computer for? we'll see if it's worth you going to a 2600k.

btw - I'm saying is - $250 CPU + $250 mobo = $500 and leaves you with $300ish to play with.

Yes, if you sell your card, that would be even better, and just get a 570 and overclock it, and save the $150.

Yes, the Phantom case is NICE.

Thank you man I'm in the final process of my order, now as for what I do:

Gaming
Opening Many applications at once
I dabble in Photoshop/Maya sometimes however very rarely(like every 4-5 months )
I do a lot of un-compressing at times as well as compressing, due to a lot of home video I make.
However no encoding just video files to comporess and un-compress once compressed.
Watching HD content on PC either streaming or My blu-ray rips, not many at the moment due to no Blu-Ray burner to rip them.
