I would, but my Vendetta comes crashing down at around 1.35V.

Maybe I would if I received a free rig like you, but that's not the case for me

actually, i put in the work to get the parts i received. i've done reviews on the parts and built/overclocked hundreds of computers in order to get sponsored. other than the motherboard & video card i've paid for every last bit of this computer out of pocket. Gigabyte and G.Skill don't just hand their stuff out to people for free, i've got to be willing to push my own hardware just as much as i push the hardware they give me. my friends and i do this with all of our equipment, grow a pair and step your game up.

I understand that it takes a lot of time and effort to get sponsored. That's great that you did. I'd still rather not push my rig to the limit.
