I've been thinking about it, but I don't have problems with my current PC as it is. It's just one of those temptations.

 

I kinda wish I had stuck with my Q9550 and Rampage x48, would have saved me a few hundred and was more than capable for what I do. But I gotta say I love my 2500k and Sabertooth P67.

I would have still been rocking my Rampage extreme x48 and Q9550 @ 4.1 SLI 670's had the board not died on me rolleyes.gif. Had to throw 1.71ish volt to the NB for it to keep up with the two cards, sound card, and 4 sticks of ram. I since put my i7 920 x58 setup in my primary rig and put my q9550 in my p43 and 5970 folding rig biggrin.gif. To me, it wasn't a huge "noticable" difference in performance exept on certain games (heavily modded GTA4, skyrim, Modded crysis/crysis 2, and large MP maps in BF3). All still playable of course. I had to do an SLI hack on my x48 board though and i did see some artifacts once in a while playing games.

I also have an old P4 520 with HT stock 3.4Ghz engineering sample rig with a 9800gtx+ and gts 250 in SLI lol. Well, and a Q8400 rig (i think).

I think it's time to kill this setup, 1155 now finally is in a good price, 775 was really good to me.
I'll probably keep it in the garage, I can't just put it in the trash yet.
R.I.P.

Yeah I'm feeling the same thing. i7 is damn amazing, but at the same time my old rig can handle a lot of modern work fine when equipped with a strong GPU and especially a SSD setup.
Just don't know when I should make the jump. I think I may just run this rig straight into the ground until it just struggles too much with newer stuff.

q9550 c1 owners what is the most volts anyone has used on the vcore with out frying it, I am using a 790i board so vdroop is bad but not the worst I have seen but I am using allot of volts now to keep it at 3.7 24/7 and kinda wish I had a E0 chip now but temps are still in check so was wondering how much vcore volts I really can throw at her.

I need the truth on this not some i got 4ghz on a C1 with 1.2 vcore lol I want to hear about the highest volts used not the lowest at a good OC (nice to hear and see but not my question at hand)

I have seen some saying 1.5~1.6 v is not all that bad just takes time off the life of the chip but has anyone used more? thanks

EDIT: but she didnt get the NB block at the fire sale and i didnt know i would be buying a skulltrail then, so now i need to pay $40 for one sozo.gif


Will the volts get at this chip or is it just heat? I want to push it 1.6~1.65 maybe sitting at 1.55 now after a year or so hate putting that out there at first most come back and say thats way to much volts but this chip likes it there not one bsod but if I lower it even the slightest she will crash. so my question still remains on this I would like to hear others that ran high volts just to ease the jump in my mind, I don't want it to go poof lol (OK I admit it I am nervous lol, but only because I cant get a new board and chip at the moment) I really want it at 4ghz my sli will just scale so much better plus I like the fact of beating out the hex AMD rig my friend has lol with my 2008 rig long live LGA775 for my broke azz

PS I am on water not air and thinking of even grabbing a board block for the 790I which they sell still
