Newegg package tracking is a curse... ETA date is Tuesday for my card. I'm sitting here staring at my empty case and PSU wondering how I'm going to do cable management and if there are enough ports on my Mobo for the top-ports of the case
Explanation: 1.39v is pretty damn high for Sandybridge, I don't really expect your chip to last very long if you keep it at that voltage and overclock long. I honestly hope you downclock it to at least 4.8GHz. You can say you have a 5.0GHz capable chip, but honestly, especially with just a 212+ cooler... I would not push it.
Anyone have experience with the "turboboost" thing for CPUs? Is it basically overclocking made easy?
I was running my x360 with a 20" 16:10 monitor and ALL games ran at full resolution without letterboxes. However, the console must be configured manually for 16:10 in the settings, it doesn't detect proper resolution automatically. I wish i could give you a photo to prove my point, but i already changed that monitor to 27" 16:9.The games themselves letterbox 16:10 almost all the time

I could have sworn I read on overclockers.net or somewhere that 1.4v is when you start getting into the unsafe zone for the Sandybridges. My mistake. All these numbers get confusing. >_<
My CPU's back at 3.3 GHz till I figure out how to operate the multiplier on Asus boards. :P
