Had already upgraded to a 5820K a year before hand since every one was saying how much of a improvement id get with SLI 980ti's. But for 99% of games I didnt notice any difference.
thanks for sharing that... that confirms what I've been thinking... that a well tuned fx could in fact feed an extreme gpu setup properly.. Sorry to hear yours died... I'm hoping mine hangs on a bit longer... I'm hoping since mine doesn't take much voltage to hit 5ghz that it will last longer...
