Same here...2 years ago, i won some overclocking and benchmarking awards with this machine...now it's getting a little long in the tooth. Drooling for a Sandy Bridge.. 2600k, but waiting to see what Ivy Bridge brings. Reviews so far, don't show much improvement. :cry:

I get the itch to upgrade from time to time, but this machine is still ok for my tasks. hoping to get another 1-2 yrs out of it.

Headsick the build looks nice. What's the purpose of the performance test you ran?

Thanks

Thanks. There's not really much of a purpose, windows vista and 7 have the score built in, and it runs automatically, unless you change something, then it needs to be refreshed. Basically just to give you a baseline idea of how decent your hardware is.

Don't bother, it's pretty much a useless benchmark. Most modern machines will max it out, there are much better benchmarks out there if you are looking to gauge performance on your machine.

Thanks

how quiet is that ax850? i was thinking about getting corsair ax before i ended up with seasonic and its pretty quiet i cant hear a thing. but ive always wanted to know about the corsair ax, ive always wanted one

is your 2500k stable at 5ghz and are you running it constant at 5ghz? im running my 2500k at stock speeds at the moment

The AX series is incredible. 100% Modular, very quiet, and extremely efficient. The AX1200 is a bit different (and better) than the other AX PSU's, but the rest are still great power supplies.

Seasonic makes this power supply. If you got the gold rated one, it's the same-very quiet indeed. Overall, you could sleep in the same room with this system at full load.

I've done a 24h Prime blend and it is rock solid stable. Under 70 degrees load. If you have a somewhat decent cooler, you could probably easily hit 4.7-4.8ghz.

I would argue the 850 to be better. The 1200 is made by Flextronics whereas the 850 is made by Seasonic. Seasonic is one of the best out there. Their 1000w platinum is incredible as are all of their gold rated PSU's.

The 1200w is more efficient and more stable. It's one of the best PSU's available on the market today.

Check out the Johnny Guru review on the 1200w.
