Oh yeah, I just wanted to point out that debating the lanes thing isn't relevant anyway and I never should have said anything about it. I'm sorry.
The implication that was silly was recommending that someone shouldn't have used their hardware to post their personal experience. Why would someone use anything but their own gear to benchmark their own gear?
The point of this site is to share your experience/results with members of the community, the hardware used is almost irrelevant. If you're going to recommend something other than the OPs hardware at least be constructive. Telling someone they should have used hardware they didn't use negates the entire reason they'd have run the benchmark on their rig.
OP, I'm sorry I helped derail your thread, please don't let this be the end of you sharing your upgrades and experiences, you wouldn't believe how many times some random person's benchmark helped me.
