Discussion in 'Intel x86 CPUs and chipsets' started by DiGiTaL MoNkEY, Nov 17, 2010.
they probably sold out of the initial stock already i recon
when they first listed the s1155 CPU section, it had ETA of the 9th Jan.... then it wasn't long after that they then listed the CPUs as in stock
I doubt Intel are very happy about major resellers breaking the NDA on sales - PCCG prob got pressured to stop selling until the 9th
Well, I ordered last night, wonder if it is going to be processed or not.
Here's my new PC i put together on monday this week (03/01/11)
Intel i7 2600 - @ 4.2Ghz Turbo Mode
Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3 1600Mhz
HIS Radeon HD6950 2GB
Corsair HX650 Power supply
Corsair Force Series 120GB SSD
Samsung 1TB 7200RPM hard drive
Fractal Design ATX Case with 3x 120mm & 1x 140mm Fans
Yeah may be thats the case. IT-Estate have their cpu's as listed release on the 8th
Nice and stealthy Looks good!
wow that is one sweet looking rig there mate. You've just made it to the front page of Gigabyte Daily heheheh
What type of motherboard is that, an ASUS?
Only joshing people
WATCH OUT THERE IS A BIRDIE IN YOUR ROOM!
MAOR like a hawk, just the angle is all screwed up
hmmmm courier still hasnt picked up your P67A-UD3R, there is still time to hit cancel button
A board with 90 degree sata connectors would look alot tidier and wouldn't get in the path of the vga fan.
So what does this mean for those people or ordered yesterday? Are they going to let those go through or are they going hold the order till monday?
Yeah its a very strange bird, thinks its people! also likes to help build pc's or get in there and pull wires.
Cool, Pitty i couldnt get better pic's i took those photo's with my Samsung phone, probably better off using a real camera but thats all i have oh well
Yeah i didnt see that until after i got it home and started building, even though the board can fit a second videocard i dont think its doable unless you plan on running no hard drives/SSD's lol
A cable tie was my fix for the videocard fan touching issue.
isnt the whole point of vdroop (thats what LLC prevents right?) to account for the change in cpu current switching from full load to no load so as to reduce positive spikes on going load->no load, and negative spikes from no load->load. people who think a board with same vcore for load and no load, has no spikes in the transition is mistaken.
im not sure why people (and hence mobo makers) are so obsessed with keeping vcore the same on full load as it is on no load - on no load the extra vcore isnt going to be making much heat.
the problems only going to get worse as the cpu's get more efficient in shutting down when idling.
Pccg IS sending any chips which were ordered before the site took them down. My 2600k is winging it's way to Sydney now
I also like your HDD docks. I also use one, they are very convenient.
What did you upgrade from and what are your impressions?
Sigh and my order with them is still "processing". Which means I will only get my stuff on monday.
I upgrade from a Intel E8200 (2.6Ghz) 4GB DDR2 667Mhz 1GB Samsung drive
AMD HD5770 1GB
That PC ran pretty much everything but would lock up and crash once in a while cause of a ram issue.
If it didnt have any problems with it, i probably would of not upgraded until required. ( When the games i play started to slow down )
Confirmation today. 20/01/2011 for 2500K will be available from disty's.
Tossing up between the GA P67A-UD4 and the Asus P8P67 PRO.
Any difference between the Gigabit ethernet chips?
...the asus has Intel P67 express and the Gigabyte has the Realtek RTL8111E.
