I still have my olders ones... like @ 4.5Ghz.

Edit: The clock for clock review is with both at 2.8GHz.

Quote:
Before you begin testing the commercial processors in their configuration, we wanted to isolate the gains offered by Sandy Bridge (32nm quad core Core i5/i7 LGA1155) compared to the Lynnfield (quad-core 45nm Core i5/i7 1156). To do this, we have two processors clocked at 2.8 GHz, and measured the performance gap achieved. The results are presented as an index for readability.

Hey guys sorry to bother you, a very good online store in Australia has revealed some prices over here.

Now I have a choice wait until the price for UD7 board gets released or get one of the following:

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=16412

or

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=16388

Btw check out the prices for non K versions of the i5/i7 cpu's:

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?tab=new&cPath=416


Which board is best as far as decent amount of USB 3.0 ports and sata 3 just to give it the extra juice to last me for 2 years?

As well as Good Bios+ good overclocking capabilities.
My System.

So far, the Asus Bios looks solid, and I think all boards will be easy to overclock.

I think the sweet spot will be ASUS P8P67 PRO Motherboard

With Gigabyte, I would go with Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4 Motherboard, since that extra heatsink on the UD5 is not cooling anything, plus it comes with an extra lane that you're not likely going to use.

You're going with a 570, and possibly adding a 2nd down the line, right?

If I were you right now I'd use the 470, and wait for the 560's to come out, and or wait for the 570 with the aftermarket coolers built in. I hear there's a Twin Frozr II 570 coming out. It does drop temps by like 20 Degrees, and runs a lot quiter over the reference design.

@2010rig

Yeah I decided to keep the GTX470 for the time being, I forgot to say, I'll wait for a better card in a few months.

I really don't want to cheap out on components as this HAS to last me 2 years maybe even more if I'm being pushy.

Nothing less then 2 years, I can safely say with 100% confidence I wont be doing tri-Sli ever, even sli will be at a later date.

So ASUS pro or Gigabyte UD4? or Deluxe vs UD5/UD7?


Also one more thing: How much are the i5 2500 and i7 2600 going for in the US? Non-K versions, so far(In Australia):

Non-K:

i5 2500= $229AUD
i72600=$319AUD

Which means +$40AUD n top of that for a K edition, Should I just bite the bullet and get a i7 2600?$359AUD is not that expensive.

or Just pay $269AUD for i5 2500k?

I just have this feeling I'm cheeping out

I'd say choose between ASUS pro or Gigabyte UD4? Personally, I would go with the Asus Pro.

I don't see how there's $50 - $80 difference over their higher priced boards.

Pretty sure these boards will overclock well. Put that $80 towards the Zalman cooler on your card, and you'll be set. The 470 will game and overclock well.

Okay the prices has been revealed for these boards:

Asus Pro:

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=16418


Evo:

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=16417


or go the extra mile and get deluxe:

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=16412


I read the review for Pro and Deluxe, It seems like they pretty good motherboard(s) except for the cons:

http://www.bjorn3d.com/read.php?cID=1973&pageID=9982

"1:Marvell SATA 6 Gbps performance is slow

2:No LED error diagnostic

3:Limited fan control "

I don't know anything about the evo board yet it is 40 dollars more from the Pro, anyways i7 2600k price has been released, $399 >_<

Yeah is that good?(Most likely not) Mind you that is AUD on an Australian store,.



I was about to buy the Pro as per your recommendation 2010rig, however maybe you can look at the prices for all 3 Asus boards I linked you to and see if it is worth spending a bit extra.

I'm confused. What is the safe VID for Sandy Bridge? All the graphs and charts and pics say it can do 1.4-1.5V even though its 32nm. I remember the max going from 1.5V on 65nm to 1.3625V on 45nm. Wouldn't that sort of VID be around 1.26V for 32nm?

Also, what's LGA2011 all about? Is that Ivy Bridge? I have a E8500 right now and have been eyeing an upgrade to a quad core for a very long time now! Is the Sandy Bridge 2500K the new I7 920/Q6600?

Intel specs say 1.52v max.

Hey buddy, I'd love to check out all the features, but I'm actually crashing as I gotta be up early, I'm sure some of the other guys here can point out some of the differences.

Hang tight, since shipping won't be 'till next week more likely.
