Seen new evga p67 classified and Marshall big bang boards.
I think I'm going to wait just a bit before buying anything till the dust settles.

I'm slightly confused about the memory requirements. I see that you used 1600Mhz 1.65V sticks but I've been told that if I want to get SB I should be aiming for 1333Mhz 1.5V sticks. Is this true or will any dual channel DDR3 sticks work without a problem?
they are saying that because the memory control supports 1333. If you have a good board though 1600MHz will run fine. It is really no different than the LGA-1156 processors in that way. I did have an issue getting the Intel H67 motherboard to work with 1600MHz though.
Ah I see, thanks.

that is an insane multiplier...though considering that everything is all locked in to eachother, i wouldnt be all that surprised. what about the RAM though? how do you change the speed for that? does it have an insane multiplier as well?

How much of a performance difference do you think the i5 2500k has over the i5 760, which I was so close to getting before.

That's weird. Awesome too.

So when you cranking up the heat? Like maybe additional run through with H50?
After I get back from CES.
If you let me borrow it while you're away, I'll give them all a good test!

It fits with my H-50 LGA-1156 bracket and the Corsair H-50 bracket. I tried using it with a Gelid cooler during the review and the bracket it was just a touch off.

Well as far as the socket itself, that's about the same? So maybe just a different bracket for the pins? I've been eyeing an XT lately, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to commit to that yet.


So is the pin layout bigger now, like 77 maybe?




Edit, adding --- Nice. Let me know, I'm very curious.

Scratch that I might be wrong. I think I just on a LGA-1156 bracket to fit. I will let you know if it work in a few minutes.

How far apart is the distance? Is it between an 1156 and 1366? Would a 1366 work?
Sorry tried that one as well and it didn't work either.
