I can't find anything resembling "new" threads or even replies to old threads about poor, little neglected x79 and 2011 v1! users not 2011-3 threads which I'm sure are all over those who still have money to upgrade an entire system...which currently I don't. So I got my system tweaked with new memory and re-exploring its' capabilities after finally getting new mobo to replace a failed one. So I hoped maybe there's a few more of me out there who have this platform and might be willing to share OC'ing results particularly Sandy Bridge-E since that's what I've got atm. This is my best result thus far with memory and OC of the cpu.
