So has anyone made the jump yet?
I finished my build yesterday and I am happy with the results so far.
These CPU’s are amazing, just as an example using ConvertXtoDvd on my Core2Duo converting a 100 min AVI to DVD was about 15mins and on the i7 it took 8mins and that’s with a slower hard drive
Yes these Chips do run this hot and most people on air cooling will see 80c so actually these temps are pretty good.
I did run a stress overnight but didn’t save it will the temps maxed so this is a short run.
Here are specs
i7 920 @ 4.0GHz
Scythe MUGEN-2 with Push/Pull
Gigabyte EX58 UD5
3X2GB G-Skill DDR3
eVGA GTX 260
24" Acer HDMI LCD
Gigabyte 3d Aurora
