Well basically what happened was i recently tried to swap over to a new motherboard with a i7 3770k and found freezing issues, i have come to find my sli 6950's are on there way out because i rebuilt my amd sytem and found the same issues just not as extreme, and can atleast play for a while, no idea why :lol:  but basically i saved the money up for the cpu and motherboard, then to realise my graphics cards are pooing up, so yeah i could keep the i7 and motherboard, but soon it will leave me without a pc lol, so i've decided to send it back and use other money i have saved up plus the refund from my intel stuff to get a decent replacement card, and wait for the improved 22nm haswell proccesers early next year.

HD 6950's in CF-X is more or less equal too GTX 560 Ti's in SLi, maybe more.
but anyways that's around the GTX 680 range..

other note:
you might just have had a buggy board with the 3770K..

Haswell will be a nice move....

As always, there is no way to answer this question without more information. What games are you looking at playing? And if you want the thrills of Ivy without the thermals, go Sandy.

I understand your reasoning for going sandybridge, but me personally dont see the point of jumping back a proccesor generation, also clock for clockk the ivybridge is faster, so effectively if haswell sticks to intels supposed "tick tock" process, the tock being haswell, it means hopefully the haswell proccesor will have the increased clock for clock speed of the ivybridge, but without the thermals, so will be able to clock even higher therfore should potentially be able to cream sandybridge, also haswell is based on a new socket type, the "1150" socket, therefore meaning if i wait i have a clear upgrade path from that proccessor, whereas if i go sandybridge, i can only get an ivybrisge as a pointless upgrade, or go backwards :lol:

Jumping back? I can run my 2500k at 5.0GHz 24/7 with my H50 and at 5.2 for everyday use. If you're really lucky, you can get a 3570k to 4.6 on an H50. My 2500k at 5.0/5.2 will stomp a 3570k @ 4.6.

H50 is now outdated and the H60 is crap.
Antec 620 is better than both.

but if got the money then H80 got nice reviews..

Haha, I'm not saying to get an H50/H60/Hanything, just pointing out that Sandy's a more able overclocker.

Yeah, a lot of folks on here seem to have a vendetta against Corsair's H-series.

+1 H80. I can do 5.2GHz on my 2500K all day long.
