    I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on a 2600K, but I kinda want to wait for the new bulldozer chips.. What do you guys think? Either way i'll have to wait a few weeks to get the mother board, but i feel like i need to go ahead and buy the processor.. lol or i'll spend it on something else...hehehe

    Yea, that's kind of what i'm thinking... hehehe I want AMD to do really well, but i don't want to wait and it be ok and not great. I think the biggest selling point for me is having both crossfire and SLI.

    Nice Paulieg! I stopped at 4.5 on my 2500K, but it should do a lot more.. I ran linpak on it for an hour and it never got over 62c on air (120mm push pull). I can't do that on my Q9550 @ 3.8ghz on air... :roll: but after see what you've got on the 2600k i might just go ahead and get the 2600k. :toast:

    AMD had enough time to make a proc, which will finally get back into the game, in my opinion.:)
    If a shrink to 32nm and years of architectural improvement (magny cours) just was enough to make an "OK" proc, i would be seriously disappointed of them... especially after the Phenom 1 disaster, which should kinda have teached them a lesson. ;)

    regarding SLI and CF capabilities, i would say, that since the SLI hack was released as simple installer, SLI alone is no selling point on a board. They all have CF anyways, and most of them should work flawlessly with the Hack and any card you use with them. Even if the Hack wouldnt work at first, i bet Anatolymik (one of the creators of the Hack) would troubleshoot you in the thread very fast, and update the hack, so eventual bugs you may encounter will vanish. ;)

    Yeah, I can push a little further too...almost WCG stable on 4.8ghz, but vcore gets a little higher than I'm comfortable with, considering there is still debate on "safe" 32nm voltage. Until I know more, I'm gonna stick to 1.38v (bios) or lower. I did have a 2500K for a couple of weeks, and had it to 5.0 with reasonable voltages....but I wanted the additional threads.

    Running a Venomous X in just pull, until I get my new fans. Great cooler. Easily better than my old favorite, the Megahalems.

    My WCG output may still be inconsistent for a few days while I'm tweaking memory. Also I'm trying to figure out why my i5 655K rig will not download work. I've reinstalled several times with the same results.

    My next guess would be network permissions maybe being setup wrong in the client.

    This article was the subject of a recent thread here - http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=1083

    So intel might have an advantage for single threaded apps, but otherwise BD performace will be about 40% better, at higher clocks, smaller die size and lower temps. That sounds like a win to me.

    All my rigs are down due to thunderstorms and poweroutage except a couple... My main rig and 1 E8400 at 4Ghz. All of my UPS's are drained.. Down to 1 generator. I'll get everything backup once power has been restored.

    We had thunderstorms here too (if that's the cause of your outage). It's February and I'm being awakened by thunder. What crazy shit is this?

    Changed the flow plates on EK supreme to increase flow and reduce restriction as I have many things in the loop. Lapped my second i7 today and now temps are running at 75. Itll settle down and tad 2 degrees lower after the thermal dope sets I presume. But second baby is online.

    Temps still seem pretty high...
    What type of i7 is this one and what else is in the loop?
