I like it. I particularly like the idle power benefits you'll get from the chipset, HDD, graphics card and proc. They all bode well for your electric bill. I know that sounds silly, but hey man, if we're talking efficiency idle power consumption (what your computer is using 90% of the time) is a great indicator.

In case you haven't used it before, Win 7 hybrid sleep is awesome. From sleep, the computer loads the OS before my monitor wakes up. Why even shut your computer off anymore?

Good Build.

Yea i will defionately hae to check the windows 7 sleep hybrid out. Sounds awsome. You know the sad thing is that i wasnt really looking to go the energy saving route it just kinda happend. The hd is something i was using as and external and the rest they were just the best bang for your buck and happend to be energy officent. haha

thanks for the comments.

thanks man, I will consider it ... but might be abit expensive for me.

Im pretty worried about OCing it. Ive herd excellent things about it. Ive tried to read up on it. I think i understand pretty well. and i dont plan on pusshing it past 3.7-3.9 range. I know i can ajust the fsb not so hard its just everything else that coems with it. Memory NB and such.

My word of advice is that if your worried about OCing, DONT DO IT!! OCing is like putting a turbo on a naturally aspirated engine. TUNE TUNE TUNE! in our case, PRIME 95.

As he's got a 1055T that's more akin to tuning than strapping a turbo on. Maybe your anology would be more appropriate to the 1090T? As he'll need to tune every aspect of his mobo to get the best from it.

Nice build, similar to what I have! It's definitely a joy using this thing. Super fastt. Crazy thing is, I'm actually running @ 2.6ghz and undervolted. Still plenty fast


on a side note, she did reach 4.0, not stable. I didn't tinker further. It was tough to get my chip to 3.9ghz stable (I did it). 4.0 involves much more tinkering. Seem's like you have to get a perfect match of OCing your RAM, NB, and CPU to get this ish to crank up to 4.0 stable.
