My motherboard is holding me back. 229 is still pretty respectable but the Evga Classified can get in the 240`s. I have seen one hit 245. If I had that I could try for 21x240= 5GHZ which is my goal. Also the 980x is looking very tasty and I might be an idiot and buy one when it comes out lol
The Gulftown's are gonna be hot. I'll wait for the prices to drop before I get one though.
1.656Vcore is a lot. Well it's ok if the temps are fine.
Post up screenies, Real Temp, Task Manager, CPUZ, and Prime 95 stress, while at 4.8Ghz.
