After a LONG run with my current build, I'm feeling of moving to the next level. Would like the communities opinions on the components I have chosen, pro's and con's etc.
My old 775 system:
Asus Rampage Formula 775 X48
Q9650 @ 4.06 24/7, go to 4.25-4.3ish when feeling the need to go higher
Prolimatech Meglahalems first release( Really like this guy )
8 Gigs G.Skill 5-5-5-15 1066 @ 1066-1087 ish depending on my OC
( KEEP )Intel 320 128 SATA 2 3.0Gb/s SSD (keeping this one as my boot/gaming)
older Seagate 250G for storage (don't think I'll go back to Seagate after having 2 500GB in Raid-0 Seagate Barracuda's crap out on me )
Antec 1200 (getting really beat up after bi/monthly dust filter cleanings)
( KEEP )Corsair HX1000 Power Supply; hopefully will be fine for 1155 IB system
Well I am torn between the Motherboards and the CPU's. Seems the 3770K doesn't overclock as well, but at 4.6-4.7 beats the 2600K and 2700K in almost everything. Wonder if I should just pick up a cheap i3-i5 and wait till a new revision of the 3770K? Also, about the timings vs freq on memory thing. Looking at 2400 but thinking low timing 1866-2000 the way to go? thoughts?
