    Well, only one has actually built his. He was wanting to save money so he has an msi 760gm, athlon ii quad @ 3.1, 8gb ddr3 and an evga 550 ti. And then he got an nzxt phantom for $ 130, in preparation for an ivy bridge upgrade. The other two are buying parts as their budget allows.

    Oh, and my uncle too. He saw that I could run more than two background programs at a time and felt the need to upgrade. Went from a pentium 3 to a 2600k, changed his world lol.

    Yeah, ikr. Its always fun when hardware illiterate people want to build a gaming rig. "why would I need a CPU cooler? It gets hot!??" Ahh, ignorance is bliss...


    @Mav: What kind of cooling you got?

    For the CPU? Custom water cooling. For the RAM, none.

    Yay, cant wait to see some sweet clocks.

    I think I might get an 8170 whenever they come out. Provided it performs at least as well as sandy.

    Thanks CP, I have been reading AMD expects most to get their 8150s and even 6120s to around 4.8 GHz on air. I want to shoot for that but this 4.3 Ghz is nice. Wish I could work on clocking this ram but not sure how it works.

    Decided to join the club! Bought myself a FX-8120 today, together with an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX.

    Just did a quick and dirty OC to 4,5GHz with a core voltage of 1,4 . Seems to be stable!

    Edit: Just did a screenie to back things up: [​IMG]
