Precisely, the downside with folding with a CPU is work units take forever to complete, you need really good cooling and if your client stops you risk loosing that whole work unit.

So I got my 2600K & Asus WS motherboard. I'm not gonna lie, I've spent 2 minutes tops in the bios and I'm stable at 4.6GHz! The motherboard I got is a little finnicky though. I had to dremel bits of the bracket for my true off because it was touching the capacitors. Lol.

I've got an unboxing vid and some other goodies coming OCN's way.
