LGA 1155/FRIO

So the new LGA 1155 socket for sandy bridge, would the thermal-take FRIO heat-sink even mount on the new chip sets?

  1. what do U mean thermal-take FRIO on sandy bridge ?
    it's no problem same mounting , it 's Universal Socket Compatibility & Accessory Package, support: Intel: LGA1366,LGA1156,LGA1155,LGA775

  2. so 1155 is same as 1156 ? im confused , im an AMD guy trying intel for the first time in a while and all the identifiers confuse me.
  3. yeah in AMD very simple all CPU support & Socket for HSF just Am2 + AM3 :D
    in intel ... just same bracket / Socket HSF not system support
  4. im putting together a new system right now and just making sure everything would be fine. Would you mind checking it out once im done ?
  5. i would , and you can share it
  6. so you do want to or dont want to lol ?
  7. i don't open your link .. secured!
  8. aww dang , i guess i will just type it out. Give me a sec .

    Looks great. Nice RAM too love that cas 6. I am actually going to upgrade to an almost identical build soon.
  10. Wait I think your link took me to my wish list..........knew that looked familiar. You may want to try again with the link.
  11. i think this should work now lol sorry.
  12. Ok thats better............PSU is garbage. For 2 x GTX460s you only need 650-750 watts of a quality brand like Corsair, Seasonic. PC Power and Cooling or XFX.
  13. for PSu use Corsair 750 Watt is very very good for SLI EVGA gtx 460x2
    or better use 1 Vga get GTX 580 if u want
  14. Ok great these are the responses i wanted, i have never went INTEL so i didnt really know what was going on too much. I really want to go with a 1000w PSU, if you can recommend a better 1000w then sure i will check it out but the reviews on this one are solid, from what i have read it helps with the SLI with the gtx 460s, and also from what i have read these two super-clocked 460s will outperform a single 580. I didnt know sandy bridge is dual channel, thanks for pointing that out! Hmmm would be nice to find 2 sticks of 4gb each , or should i just do 4 sticks of 2gb each ? Money isnt too much of a problem on this build but i don't wanna go over 2 grand.
  15. Also im trying to find ram with small heat-sinks , the frio sometimes blocks the first DIMM slot if the rams heat-sinks are too big.
  16. 1000w is overkill for 2 x GTX480s much less 2 x GTX460s. Whatever you read saying it would "help" is wrong. If 650 is not enough for you ( and it is even with overclocking ) the go for the Corsair 750TX. Quality is what matters in a power supply not sheer watts.
    The RAM I linked to is bad to the bone for the price. 4GB is plenty unless you spend your time doing video or photo editing. 4GB is fine for a gaming computer. If you want just buy 2 of those kits.
  17. This RAM is close to as fast and with much lower heat spreaders. Just get 2 for 8GB.

  18. i see i see , so this is the 750 you were talking about ? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006&Tpk=750%20tx,

    Yep. It actually leaves you room to upgrade those 460s too.
  20. what cards would you recommend for better SLI ?
  21. What is your screen resolution? 2x GTX460s are pretty darn powerful equaling or even beating a GTX480. The next step up would be GTX470s. A Corsair 750 would be fine for that as well.
  22. well i was thinking of running this mainly on a 42 inch LCD 120hz tv.
  23. Oh and what are your thoughts on the mobo? im not too sure since there arent many reviews out , but i am pretty addicted to OCing , hoping this mobo will do fine with that. The OCs on these new SB chips are insanely sexy ha ha any and all recommendations are welcome!

    Its really about budget then. 2 x GTX 460s will run that just fine but if you want to spend more it's up to you.

    Same MB/processor I am about to get. Really nice.
  26. for this time use single GTX 580 for next time get SLI GTX 580 too .. wow it's amaze .. i don't think..ah
    performance or speed SLI 460 vs single Gtx 580 not too far..!
  27. I have never done sli , so the first pci slot will run at full 16 speed and whichever other slot will run at 8x?
  28. Yeah but even with GTX 580s the 8x only loses about 5%. There is no performance hit with anything less.
  29. It is just really amazing that people are getting 4.0+ OCs without even touching the voltages that is really something. This may win me over to intel for good. Although bulldozer may have some decent stuff coming for AMD. I wont trash my 965 BE i got a stable 4.0 after much trial and error , its amazing that with little effort these sandy bridge chips are getting the OCs they are with minimal effort.
  30. oh wow , that new PSU saves me an extra 100 bucks. Thanks for that mention !
  31. Should be a great build. And yeah I plan on 4.5 or better with my OC. Hell I got this E8400 to 4.4 but did not like the temps. It runs great at 4.050 though :)
  32. I just really hope the frio doesn't give me any trouble with the MOBO, or case. I know some people dont like this heat-sink, but i have seen it on my friends rig it really performs awesome. Yes i am hoping for 4.5 as well. Gah that is crazy !
  33. oh yess u must keep your eyes to watch maximum temperature when stress test !
    i wondering 4.5 Ghz . hmm 4ghz.. very very fast & enough for daily just recommend
    and 4.5ghz or more if get for benchmark !
  34. do you foresee the frio giving me any dimension problems with this case or MOBO ? I haven't, but it is also almost 3am here ha ha
  35. yeaah just add thermal paste AS5 ,
    it's the best thermal Paste
  36. Oh yes for sure, i was just wondering about dimensions.

  38. Is this board better? Than the one i have picked ? It scored highest on the overclocking tests here on the Tom's review for SB boards http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131681&cm_re=asus_p8p67-_-13-131-681-_-Product
  39. here is another board that came in high on the overclocking review http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128463&Tpk=Gigabyte%20P67A-UD4 it seems like the class right below the board i have picked.

    Here is the link to the review on the latest p67 MOBOS

    some insight would be nice here before i make this purchase. Especially from you anor3 !

    It's a good board, but all the good boards are pretty close to each other in performance and capability so I'd pick based on the layout and features you like.

    Also, the CPU has only 16 PCIe lanes so the board will drop from x16/x0 to x8/x8 with a second card installed.
  41. The asus board or the board i have picked . I am new to sli and am hoping the two cards i have picked with the mobo i have picked will do fine and not loose such performance.

    Looking good. I think the SLI will run at x8 x8 but that is no problem with the GTX460s.

    One thing I see is the TR suffix EVGA cards only have a 2 year warranty while the cards ending in AR have a lifetime warranty.

    The CPU has only 16 PCIe lanes so any mid-priced board will drop from x16/x0 to x8/x8 with a second card installed. The only workaround is to install a PCIe bridge with repeater function that sends the data from all 16-lanes to two x16 cards simultaneously, and such motherboards will cost far more.
