As for steppings I'm not sure what you will get, i think it's just luck atm I'm afraid, but from people that have owned both there has been no significant changes or any for that matter that affect overclocks.

<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<

I7 930 @ 4GHz : Noctua D-14

Any opinions on the heatsink?

TRUE-120 vs CoolerMaster V8

After I buy the adapter for the TRUE for an i7, they are a very similar price.

Mobo: Gigabyte P35-DS3R
CPU: Intel Q6600 g0 @ 3.0GHz
HSF: Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme
RAM: 4GB G.SKILL @ 4-4-4-12
VCard: EVGA 8800GTS G92 @ 700/1000
HDDs: 2x 750GB & 250GB
Optical: Sony NEC SATA DVD Burner
PSU: Silverstone 750W Modular

the true definitely. or if you had the cash left over you could do some sick water cooling.

and if you got the money to spare i would get this ram,

Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 6GB &#40;3 x 2GB&#41; 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1800 &#40;PC3 14400&#41; Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

and yes the silverstone PSU you allready have should suffice.


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD

SLI ON INTEL P45: http://www.techist.com/pc/f76/sli-intel-chipset-219886/

<<< i like rep :D
