  1. yes they both will fit.And the only difference is the mutiplier being unlocked in the 2600k, which in turn makes it easier to overclock.
  2. Thanks for your reply. Will the following ram work on an ASUS P67 Rev: Kingston HyperX 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K4/16GX

  3. Thanks for your reply. Will the following ram work on an ASUS P67 Rev 3. Kingston HyperX 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K4/16GX

  4. all ddr3 ram would work on a ddr3 slot.And the only way to Overclock a k series such as i7 2600k is to use a p67 or a z68 chipset mobo.

    And that ddr3 ram has to be desktop ram.Eg non ecc , unbuffered.

    Dont forget, that the 2600K has a HD3000 integrated GPU, whereas the 2600 has an integrated HD2000 GPU. which wont matter if you are planning on installing an independant graphics card anyway.

    Love your new sig about mac trucks!

  7. If the primary purpose of this PC is for gaming, then just be aware that there aren't any games that uses Hyper Threading other than a game called Firefly (minor boost in performance). Therefore, an i5 2500k would be a more logical choice.

    Hyper Threading comes in handy for video encoding, 3D rendering, and complex database processing though.
