Not my 2600K as that's just on the bench ATM, since the MSI POS never worked I never installed it into a case. I always bench my new builds first, hehehe, I start them by shorting out the pins with a screwdriver! :lol: RTFM first for those that don't know.;) I'll give this one until the end of the month, should be a good burn-in time as I run 24/7 @%100. Can't beat that for stability tests. :silly:

BTW, I have a good case with an opening behind the CPU but it's not enough to fit a huge HS/F backplate on there like the Hyper 212+, I find that hole basically useless unless one needs to change out the Intel HS/F and those d*mn push pins don't retract! :lol:

That is weird, how did that happen, you two must have been sending your posts at exactly the same time, and quoting each other or something

This one is slightly over clocked using the built-in ASUS Ai Suite 2 app. I do get some funky PC start-up occasionally w/ this tho.

I most likely hit 'EDIT' in your post instead of reply. :embarrassed:

Just saw a guy who's getting 4.9GHz with a Prolimatech cooler. Jeez man! Am I ever itching all over ATM! :silly: Fortunately, I swore to never upgrade anything under the influence, waste of time really and/or really breaking something! There's always tomorrow.;)
