Got my 3570k on first day of release but didn't have time to install. This morning I had a some time so I finally got to swap out the SB i5-2500k for the 3570k from my MSI Z68A-GD65 G3 MB. The swap went smooth. I installed the latest IB supporting BIOS for my MB last week so it was ready to just put it in and go. Before booting up I wasted no time and went for an over clock. 1.22v on firstname.lastname@example.orgGHZ and I lowered my ram voltage to 1.5v since the IB has a stronger memory process I thought I could get away with lowering my ram voltage from 1.63v@2133mhz, CL 9-11-10-27 CR 1. Once booted windows 7 immediately did a device update and I had to reboot. After that it booted up fine and I went straight to Intel Burn Test for stability testing. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2352909 I'm impressed with the low voltage for the speed and the stability. I'm also impressed with how I was able to lower the voltage on my ram. This chip is beast. Idles very cool and when under load it does get hotter than my 2500k but it is rated for higher temps. I think this CPU is a real beast. Very happy with my first boot and over clock. Running Swiftech HD water block for cooling with HWLABs 360 and 120 steath radiators. That is where I am at so far. Time for IB fun.
