    Strictly for gaming: z68 or x79

    There's so much hype surround x79 but so little information about x79. I am wondering just for gaming purposes only (and I'm talking about Battlefield 3), is it even worth waiting for x79/LGA2011? Are we going to see performance difference like we saw with 1366 vs 1155? s quad channel even...

    Do I need to reapply TIM when...

    I had to replace my motherboard, so of course, I had to remove the heatsink in order to tranfer my CPU from the old motherboard to the new one. The current TIM is still on the heatsink and CPU. Should I reapply the TIM or can I just stick the heatsink back onto the CPU?

    Should I reapply TIM to my cpu? I think its been more than a year since since I bought my D0 i7 920. I was using AS5 atm the time, and I have not changed since so I'm pretty sure its still the same TIM. Should I reapply TIM or is there no need?
