so 213 is the highest blck on the p5p77d deluxe, at least on my board. 213x19. Going to work on highest total shortly, might only be 4.1 (stable).
1.38vcore, 1.3v IMC, 1.15 PCH, 1.65vdimm, 1.8 PLL

I'm disappointed. I really thought p55 mounts would be out for the 2 best air coolers on the market. Guess that makes my decision easy, for now.

i think heatsinkfactory is just sold out of the Prolimatech Megahalems 1156 bracket...if that eases your decision any...

So, absolute best thing about socket 1156 is the 1156 memory kits, they oc like mad at rated voltages. DDR3 1600 HyperX 2x2GB kit OC'ed to 2130MHz with timings at 9-9-9-24, 1.65v. Rated timings are 8-8-8-24. Thats badass.

And the memory controller on these chips is amazing. Could you run some Everest memory benchmarks? :D

Yeah very small, wait til you see the CPU size, makes the 1366 CPU's seem like giants.

well upon first impression...

i can say it feels QUITE SNAPPY.

very quick at doing things thats for sure.

seems to run decent temps so far.

26c idle and 41c load using xigmatek dark night.

something got fucked in my OS when i changed vid cards so im reinstalling 7 right now.

the mobo is seeing all 4gb/4sticks of ram so im happy.

the cpu is almost same in size as a 775 cpu but looks like a mini 1366.

like i said....

VERY VERY SNAPPY.

I just got home from one of my independent jobs, and before I left my boss was asking about the p55 platform and told me he had been specking parts out for an i5 750 or i7 860 build for me at work. I told him how much my build was and what I’d change and add to my build to etc. Well he didn’t need much convincing offered to pay for half the build and I could take it if/when I left.

So I just picked up what I could with his half…

eVGA p55 FTW
i7 860
4 gigs of g,skill ripjaw

Totally going to be able to play games @ work. lolz
