Solved Time to update my system! Tags: New Build Systems Last response: November 27, 2012 10:51 PM in Systems Share zeukin November 26, 2012 7:14:58 PM Hello all from tom's hardware! I ordered this decent build last year from cyberpower and I've been experiencing problems with it since I OC'd it. It was a bad idea doing so from the beginning. Here's my current build Azza Hurrican 2000 - case X58A GD45 msi - mobo i7 960 proc - cpu SLI 560ti EVGA - gpu kingston DDR3 2GIGS triple channel 1600mhz (X6) - memory Asetek 210LC - liquid cooler Currently I'm just thinking of getting a new mobo and cpu, but keep everything else. Thanks!

Overclocking? Two, three, or four way SLI or CrossFire in the future? Use pcpartpicker and click on mother boards. Narrow your search by selecting Intel chips, 1155 chip socket, and z77 chipset. zeukin November 27, 2012 10:51:06 PM Best answer selected by zeukin. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
