Hey guys, I just need to know one thing, after reading hookies posts and that thread where he was called out on using results from another person.(real low)

Why is this guy not banned or at least warned by the mods? I mean If he constructively gave reasons why he thinks SB is not worth upgrading or waste of money, I will be okay with it.

However he acts like a child in all his posts and ruins pretty much most of the SB threads, it really is distracting.

I don't think he ruins threads. I really like his L98 by the way. It's a classic and looks mint.

He is in denial however when it comes to the 2600k. It's obviously a better performer than the 9xx chips, but he does have a valid point...9xx is the better set up for multi-gpu solutions. Even if these SB boards at 8x/8x don't really limit these cards by much...16x/16x/16x sure sounds better on paper.

Seeing that I have 254 titles on Steam that all work perfectly on my current systems (curse those sales and my poor impulse control) and of those at least 200 are still waiting to be played. So it is going to be a loooooong time before any upgrades happen for gaming purposes. The Folding at Home machine is another matter all together, if I could have a more efficient and faster CPU for folding then sign me up as electricity costs add up over time easily justifying an upgrade.
If you are concerned about electricity costs, then don't fold, seriously.

Is this your real clock? or just a CPUZ Validation?

You don't get x16/x16/x16 on any board or platform without having add-in chips. I think the default setup for tri-GPU configurations is x16/x8/x8.

nice avatar btw lol

2600k isn't all bad at all but you know sooner or later intel will release 2700k with better clock, i'm pretty sure it'll happen, it happen to i7 920, then he need to upgrade again to get his e-peen stats back lol getting the latest tech doesn't mean a good thing.


As for now, i'm waiting to see what bulldozer can do, then i'll laugh all the SB denialer (i made that word up!) if Bulldozer comes out on top

Wait, wait...if BD is better then SB where do you think leaves i7? If BD is as efficient/or better then SB then that would put i7 at the bottom of the barrel. Why? Because i7 setup (regardless of it's performance) is still the most expensive route.

However, I'm basing price structure on my opinion that BD won't cost as much as the higher end versions of i7s.

Ivy Bridge will leapfrog if that happens.

I really hope people aren't jump shipping 1366 to 1155.
