Very nice. Cooling?

You should try Linx, too.

Also, you can't just "replace" the tim under the IHS. Once you remove that IHS, it's bye bye IHS. You won't be putting it back on.
New question is will the lid be as easy to remove as the old Athlon X2s and Opterons of old?

Should be the same basic concept. Apparently though there's issues placing it in the cpu socket without the IHS.

Just shrunk with a better iGPU and a few small tweaks. Haswell will be the new architecture, which comes out next year.

picked up my 3770k from microcenter for $279.99 today, along with an asus Z77 sabertooth. (which they price matched within $10 of newegg)

got 2x8gb ripjaw 2133 and corsair h80 water kit coming in from newegg.

going to use my existing 80gb intel ssd for windows/office/PS, and the vertex 3 120gb for steam and games. selling my two gtx570's as soon as evga releases their 4gb gtx680 (i run 2d surround). got a trusty 1000hx powering everything. (i've had it forever and it's still going strong. corsair psu's ftw)

should be a half decent all around computer. i can't wait. (proud of myself for waiting this long to upgrade this time, i'm still running an i7 930)

No $50 discount on the combo? The 2600K would have probably been a bit better then I would think since it offers the combo deal.

The processor was already $70 off. Normal cost for the 3770k is $349

Yeah, but the 2600K is $280 and gives $50 off, making it $230 for a better daily CPU.

It's only better if he OC's it, which he didn't mention if he was going to or not. I'm still hoping intel fixed the TIM issue with the processors and soldered them on instead. If that's the case we'll end up seeing much better results with production models than the previous engineering models.

they said that specific cpu doesn't qualify for the cpu/mobo combo $50 off, but they were willing to match newegg's price on the motherboard (they got within $10 so good enough for me)

as far as overclocking, i'm going to do a mild OC since it'll be on the h80 corsair water kit which seems to have decent reviews for a premade kit. 4.5 ghz would be ideal but we'll see what i hit.

oh and i'm definitely partaking in intel's warranty thing lol

Sabertooth Z77 is $239 now. You should take the receipt back in for the refund.

TIM being used still isnt the issue,
http://www.overclock.net/t/1249419/p...ed-without-ihs
22nm is too new and not efficient enough yet. Voltage needs to be lower. The voltage increase needed per clock jump is much higher then Sandy. Thats why its cooler and uses less voltage at stock, but as you start to push past a certain point, you need lots of voltage. Next revision we should see improvements, same as the 920 C0/C1 to D0 brought lower voltage and lower temps. And the Q6600 before that.

Its the first of the new series, just wait for the new revision.

if you got the green.

i went big twice, when the qx6700 came out and the night the i7 965 EE came out.

just bought a house so time and money are being spent on more important things on my end. that and i still have yet to find a game that will bring my i7 and the 3 gpu's to its knees so i will be upgrading only if i have to. the qx6700 is now in the living room pc
