i7 950 4.5Ghz | Upgrade to SB? - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Use the money for a 3rd 6950 and really pwn him, seriously an i7 and 4.5GHZ is nothing to sneeze at, wait it out until Ivy Bridge and then make him feel like a moron for not "waiting", the waiting game is so stupid unless very close to a launch.

Edit: How in the world are you using that amount of voltage on a air heatsink? Does Prime 95 get you into the 90s?

Stick with your current setup. Dont waste any more money on upgrades and save for Ivy Bridge, thats what I'm doing at least.

Your sig has: Intel i7 950 4600Mhz HT 1.456v
That's damn good for a 950 if it's at least bench stable there, right up with the golden 920s. SB would be more of a sidegrade, & getting a good SB chip is completely luck of the draw.

Well that is almost the MAX that any air cooler can take, 3DMark 11 gets the highest core to 76C, can't run any Prime95 test because of my motherboard, which was one of the reasons to go for SB, if my TDP breaks 200W my comp shuts down in P95 or any other thing that uses 100% CPU.

Yeah I'd do it. You will be unhappy if you don't because you'll always be thinking about it.

It'd be a problem if there wasn't stuff coming down the pipe that is going to be considerably better than current sb... I'm planning on upgrading to sb as well, but I won't switch from an enthusiast platform to a mainstream one. s2011 will come out this year, and that is going to be the proper upgrade path for 1366.

The problem is I'm 15 years old, got no job, so the money income is little, or would be without my grandmother, she needs alot of help, and pays well too XD Any thoughts when will the S2011 Cum? I wants it! That might just be the real thing, because I need to save up for a dirt bike (Here in Finland you don't get a car untill you 18) and you get a dirt bike at 16 legally, so I need to save up for one that passes the legal limits. But any thoughts on when will it be released, and what are the costs?

E:Oh and how long do you think my CPU would last with my sig settings? Till Ivy?
E2: Btw temps NEVER break 75C, but usally stay at MAX 65 while gaming.
