Upgrade from Core2Quad Recommendations

Recommended Posts

If you'll never run two cards, get this board. It's cheaper and better than the Gigabyte: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-p8p67-le-rev30-intel-p67-s-1155-ddr3-sata-iii-6gb-s-raid-sata-pcie-20-%28x16%29-atx

(the Gigabyte has less USB ports and yet has a parallel port and serial port LOL!)

Very good point, I have become so accustomed to seeing them on the back of my PC that I didn't even notice, I have placed my orders including the Asus

 

Thanks for your help

 

I will update this thread once all the bits come..

Went to go see what board you picked came back to make the same suggestion already made. Haha good luck with your build and yes the cooler will fit, it fits in my case which is narrower.

Just wanted to post an update - all my parts came, I had a small delay on the Coolermaster 210+ but I am loving the extra boost in performance I have gained. I am very happy with the 210+ its keeping the CPU in check currently sitting at around 30-35c idle and around 50c under load. it is so quiet compared to the hum of my old HSF.

 

I have not got around to trying out the overclocking options on the board yet, I have everything set to auto but the board automatically pushes the CPU up to around 3.6ghz on its own and drops it down to 1.4ghz idle so its very efficient.

 

thanks all
