    It's really no big deal. As far as reviewers go, I don't actually cover that many "parts per year". Works out to about one every 2 weeks.

    New year is almost here...gonna have to empty the shelves and try to fill it again in 2012. :roll:

    Because the piss-ass little heatsinks that Intel gives with most CPU's wouldn't do anything for these? Actually, it's more like extra money in Intel's pocket, as they know we won't ever use them anyway...

    That one belongs in the "Filthy Rotten Help Desk Nightmare" thread. BTW, the thing I see the most on keyboards now is foundation makeup. Women touch their face then type on the keyboard, use the mouse or use the phone. Laptops are bad, too. Moost of the time we get a laptop in, the first thing we do is scrub it down with a Clorox wipe, then dry it off with a soft cloth. MOst of the time they look brand new after I'm done with them. :pimp:

    You know, I was sitting here clocking with the GA-X79-UD5, watching power consumption.


    At stock, my chip consumes as much power, correction...more power... as my 2600K's do when fully overclocked. It needs that watercooler Intel sells.


    So yeah, it kinda seems liek a mix of both..to get a bit more cash, and because a reasonable solution isn't something they could produce easily. Like, I need to get my watercooling going again...too abd my block is still in the mail, and my All-in-one coolers don't have the right bracket. :banghead:

    I need to find an exchange policy somewheres...:laugh:

    Toying with a Geforce GT 240 for physX and added a second fan to the H60 and will be adding a second set of the Vengeance 8GB kit soon (I know overkill:D). Also I am using the problematic HD 5850 in crossfire without any of the issues I had when using it alone i.e. no vertical lines in games etc.... I'm using my old card as the primary one, maybe what ever is causing the problems is simply not in use in crossfire.

    Playing Mass Effect 2 ATM (Steam deals) and can't wait for the third installment in March.... I think I love Liara:eek:

    Nice rig, and I've been waiting for ME3 for a year and a half. Liara is very sweet, but I'm more of a Miranda guy. :D

    Not the most beautiful system, but for me, power and quietness matter ;-)

    All the sides are covered with Silverstone SST-SF01 -mat, GTX580 @ 40% fan speed and using the U.L.N.A adapters on the D14. I cant seriously hear ANYTHING :)

    What comes to the hardware, I'm thinking of buying the GTX680 when it arrives, if not then I'm gonna wait for Maxwell OR get a second GTX580 when the prices come down. i7 3770K is also something I'm considering of but that's very unlikely to happen since I'm running the 2600K @ 4.8Ghz so the gained win in perfomance with the 3770K would be minimal.

    Happy New Years everyone! :toast:

    My green-blooded Vulcan lives again, with a new Gene-Z motherboard and a I5 2500K.

    Currently testing for stability at 5GHz. Build still in progress. :D
