    Yeah, but when you are approaching a forced upgrade(five year old dual core CPU that's been OCed by like 60% for nearly all of its entire life) you want something a liiiiiiiiiiiiittle better.

    I sort of recently replaced a 3.4 GHz PIIX4 with a 4.3 GHz 3570k. This was quite the speed boost. I had been playing Crysis 2 and I immediately noticed much faster load times. I figure the 560 Ti isn't waiting around on that PIIX4 anymore lol. The old Vertex 2 apparently had some legs too because Windows whips up quicker as well.

    My CPU clock speeds are a bit rusty but that's quite the overclock on your CPU. Is that on air?

    I'm not up to date either with the CPU over clocking scene but I thought 4Ghz was cake for Sandy and Ivy.

    Yeah 4.2 GHz is almost guaranteed on the stock voltage for both SB and IVB.

    Even the SB-E boxes have some serious overclocking headroom. My 3930k is doing 4.5Ghz on air, all six cores and HT enabled, with a 125bclk and all eight sticks of ram populated, and using a very minor voltage bump.

    SB and IVB are fantastic overclockers.

    Wonder how well my aging 990x will overclock.

    Yeah, IVB and SB are fantastic. My launch 2500k easily does 4.4 ghz with almost passive cooling. 120 mm fans only rotate about 300-400 RPM. I thought of taking the chance and trying fully passive on the CPU heatsink (relying only on one case fan for total system airflow, PSU is in a separate chamber) but there is no audible noise from those fans at that RPM through the Antec P-182.

    Regards,

    I never finished this game, but did beat Crysis 2 and currently playing 3. I guess I should go back and play it sometime seeing as how I own it on Steam already.
