It's done I ordered one...EVGA E760 CLASSIFIED


Recommended Posts

Well I couldn't take it any longer. I had to have it and Newegg dropped the price....soooo I bought it.

also picked up one of these, was cheaper then buying the already blocked version Classified board.

I have a i7 920 D0 cpu on the way too. Now I need memory.

 

Suggestions???

Nice color match and nice price.

 

As of right now I know nothing about how to oc i7's. Of course my system will be water cooled, cpu, gpu and mobo chipset. So I want to make sure I don't get ram that holds back the cpu oc.

KRAM, did you win a lottery .. would you mind donating some to the miggsy fund :P:lol:

 

I would usually prefer water blocks from EK Cooling, unfortunately their classified full mobo block is double the price as that Koolance one, but hey EK quality is far superior..

 

Anyhow, first video card, now this.. really nice build coming.. if you have save any $$.. Miggsy fund please :mrgreen::lol:

 

For RAM, Corsair Dominator GTs are pretty good, those Geils are very good too..

No lottery winning here. Just sold my soul to the Devil. I hear he will take anyone if you're interested miggs. :ukliam2:

 

I looked at the Corsair Dominator GT's but are they worth the extra price?

Tbh.. no.. Corsair RAM is usually overpriced..

 

I personally like these guys .. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820231225

 

G-Skill are known for pretty high quality RAM.. Here's 2 reviews:

 

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardw...kit-review.html and http://www.guru3d.com/article/g-skill-ddr3...memory-review/1

 

I think this RAM is totally worth it at it's value.. runs cool, and has lots of overclocking potential..

 

stupid me.. those by Bigjoe are also G-skills.. Its a good question if the $30 is worth it, I would say.. if you do have the money. go for it, if you're tight on budget, go with the cheaper one.. either one both are G-skills and you definitely will not be dissapointed by both.. here's a review on the same website for these trident versions.. http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardw...kit-review.html

These guys don't give a damn good for no reason, prolly some good RAM..

ask el kido how the Tridents perform, he is running a i7 920, and watercooled @4.6GHz with that memory at 2100 :tup:

 

those perfect storms seem very good and good reviews too.

 

 

on a side note, where can i sell my soul to the devil, whats an after life of hell compared to a wonderful life of fun? :lol:

I have these Tridents and they do pretty well. 9-9-9-24 @ 2100+ and after that its iffy at 1.65v. Im worried to ad voltage for ram i dont want to fry my chip.

 

I do everyday pretty much at 21 x 180 and ram at 1800 @ 8-8-8-20. They do well.

Looking at your sig el kido, you run at 4.6Ghz daily?

52% is nothing.

 

You should be able to get a lot more on the classified with a 920.

 

The P6T I'm using is a little BCLK challenged. The 920 multi is 20, so at 4 GHz, (20 x 200) the memory is just hitting stock, which should leave some headroom for more CPU/BCLK overclocking.

hmm...i only purchased DDR3 1600...i dont think there are any really good ddr3 2000 sets out yet...and most of them are the higher profile...which i cannot use with my v10...so i had to go with the 1600...

 

I went with a Corsair DDR3 1600 set....hope they o/c well...

With good air or water.

 

Check out what the 920's are getting with air:

4GHz for 24/7 should be doable.

 

 

Well it seems to be a crapshoot on what kind of o/c results.

 

So who knows...you are sure you got a D0 stepping? There seems to be quite a few batch A sets still floating around that dont o/c as well as the as the batch B...but its really just a luck of the draw...

 

When i get in my build we will put our test up against each other okay? haha

Yep positive I'm getting a New Retail Box D0 chip.

 

Per seller of the chip
