    Question about OC'ing with 4 pin on the mobo

    According to sites I have seen that also got the 3770K to 1.28v got 204w while the 4 pin is 194w. I saw alot of reviews going up to 1.35v and not saying a word about the 194w limit. Will extra 10w really so bad for the mobo?

    BenQ XL2420T vs XL2420TE

    Where I live the only screen that is 120hz is BenQ XL2420T. The XL2420TE didn't arrive yet and maybe wont come at all. The differences are: the New ZeroFlicker technology, 144hz and 1ms GTG The question is are they really significant? is it worth it?

    Question about OC'ing with 4 pin on the mobo

    I got the Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H with 4 pin cpu connector and 3770k @4.5ghz with 1.284v. I got into a debate with my friends and they say it's isn't safe because the maximum the 4 pin put out is 194w and the CPU on 1.28v is 200w. Are they right?

    Help choosing SSD

    Ok great thanks. Now I need to choose between the EVO and not-EVO.. I know you said I know the w/r is slower but the question is it really worth the extra 50 USD? Will I feel the different in a regular home use? will it be noticeable with VMware?
