I don't think a P35 is a very good chipset to try overclocking on. I really think you could at least get 3.8 if you pushed it. Then again, you may just have a lemon proc.
P35 FTW! Easily holds it's own against the X38 and P45. My E3110 did 500x10 on mine, although it was only a CPU-Z screenie.

Lynnfield is what you want, they'll be on Newegg tomorrow (8th).

LGA 1156
95W TDP
Dual channel memory controller with 16 integrated PCI-E lanes.

Core i5 750 2.66GHz @ $199 + P55 mobo @ $125.

The 7xx series has no HT, which shouldn't be a problem. It trades blows with the PII 955 but should beat it once both are overclocked. 8xx series has HT and will make the 920 obsolete.

I'm going for the 750.

Correct me if im wrong but the i7 is faster then the i5 correct? How soon can we expect to see the 8xx series and how much better will it be in your opinion? Is it worth holding out for now and get the i8? And if someone can answer my question about the ram that would help me a lot. Thanks

I thought that the I5 is a lower version of the i7?

Generally computer part manufacturers release high-end products first, then mid/low-end for cheaper. Then they boost the high-end slightly (overclock or w/e).Then next-gen, they do it again.

i7 > i5.

I'm glad to hear that So my i7 is still a top lvl build. What makes me wonder how much better will the i8 be? I heard it will come out 1st quarter of 2010. If the i8 will be using the same socket then i'm still good.

Did you read the reviews?





They put out a lot less heat (95W TDP vs 130W) and the overall cost of the platform is going to be far less than LGA 1366.

Core i7 920 + ASUS P6T + 3x2GB DDR3 1600 = $634

Core i5 750 + MSI P55 CD53 + 2x2GB DDR3 1600 = $420

If you want cheaper, go with a Phenom II X4 955, if you want max power, go with an i7.

That's my opinion.
