Default Re: i7-990x

the 990X is one of the first generation Core i.

It is the Sandy Bridge (Second Gen) chipsets that had issues. And these have been sorted out now anyway.

The new chips have names like 2600k, rather than 990X.
EVGA SLI Micro Z68 // Intel i5-2500k // 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz // Overclocked 2GB MSI R9 270X // Corsair Carbide SPEC-03 // Kingston Hyper-X 120GB // 2TB WD Green + 500GB WD Black
