Also as long as my machine delivers 60 FPS on nearly all my games bar Crysis I am happy, have only just started OC this beast. It's different to say the least, the way you have to balance setting whilst playing with CPU Frequency and the voltages. Love it, it keeps me on my toes, better than that noob BE.

Not to insult anyone with a BE, it's just that I see a lot of threads basically saying need help flipping one switch and one voltage.
yes, but i also see peoping saying they prefer overclocking non BE proccessors due to the fact you overclock everything and therefore get bigger gains all round.

this is true, but take a look at those that choose to overclock on a non BE CPU, a lot of them have more experience overclocking.

I love them (non BE), my first CPU was a non BE an AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+ and I was close to getting that to 3.7 GHz then a Phenom 720 BE due to the potential of unlocking, which I conquered that also X4 @ 3.7 Ghz.

Now to my 1055T, which I have stable @ the moment @ 2.9 GHz on 1.2v so it will be interesting to see what this can do, first I'll see how low I can get the voltage then I'll go up. It will give me an idea of how good (golden) the chip is.

But anyway dude keep up the good work.

Dude you will love it, at moments it has you nearly tearing your hair out but that moment of triumph is worth it.

I don't just use my machine for gaming I do a bit of Photo manipulation and i am getting into 3d design (mainly heatsinks and cases) but here is some of my horror art.





The last one is the begging of my "Tortured Toys" and the first was a practice, I use Photoshop CS for some things and GIMP 2.6 for the other.


Back to topic: Anothing thing to talk about, is how the Intel chipset can do both CrossFireX and SLi.

You wait and see what I have planned for the rest of "Tortured Toys". Both Barbie and Ken make an appearance. If you like it I'll keep you posted.

No actually, surprise surprise. I am a Microsoft resisted OEM system builder and commission toy soldier painter and sculpter.



Soon I am moving into custom case painting and modification and case design ( the heatsink design is a hobby), I have interest in doing an ALIEN themed case, hopefully the client commits to it.

The whole idea is to have the top of the case shaped like the ALIEN head and the jaws open when the disk drive is opened, with a curled up ALIEN making the window on the side. A very H.R. Geiger inspired art piece.
