    So I have been following since the days of yore and apparently I have a ton of reading to catch up on. I am now OC'd to around 4.0 in Win 8.1 using the D.O.C.P. in my Asus M5A99X Revo Board (original, not Rev 2.0 which apparently is better) so am wanting to know what all y'all have done to OC. I know each is different and I am using the latest BIOS from Asus for this board (would have been bad ass if someone had made a custom BIOS like they did for the original Crosshair V).

    Any tips, help is appreciated. I have it on a Custom EK 240 RAD. I guess I should take a pic of this huh, lol.

    Pip I like the first better, aesthetically, but the second has the rubber grommets for cable management so I would go with that one. Although personally, white is sexy I am not fond of the red lines on the second.

    if metro and apps and etc never existed i would pick 8 without a 2nd thought, installed start8 but still a find a few things annoying but overall i find it very smooth and i like the sharp square edges, the colors and uses less ram too

    I have a couple of different ways to cool it depending on my mood anything from my trusty modded Coolermaster V10 (which I will hit 5ghz on thank you), H100i or a full watercooling loop.

    I must have but that 829 proc is looking good. Nice to see them try and shoot back up on Intel prices. BTW, any info for my question from a few days ago or is it just meh not worth going higher?

    As to the question, I prefer Windows 8. The metro screen doesn't bother me especially when I boot passed it.

    ive gotten used to win8 now, feels trendy and clean.

    i have nothing on my desktop apart the recycle bin and a pretty picture!

    it boosts 3 times faster than 7 and seems less buggy! i hardly ever get a lock up or crash due to software. on 7 it just liked to mess around a lot!

    I was only playing COD4, so its not even using 4 cores and the CPU never went over 20%.

    So if I play BF3 which uses all cores it might go higher.

    Going to MC now to see if I can pick up a better cooler.
