    Let me stop you there.

    P67 and Z68 motherboards will support the Ivy Bridge CPUs, since they are 1155 CPUs as well and I think the most you have to do is do a minor BIOS flash and boom your MoBo is IB ready.

    Badabing badaboom.

I see no sense in "upgrading" forcing me to buy a new socket type board for almost zero performance increase over what I have. My computer only lacks the inability to maximize graphics on my 1080p monitor now due to the 6870 being somewhat of a budget high performer, as it had no problem running most games at a 1680x1050 resolution near maximum settings. Hence why I am more interested in getting a graphics card before a new processor. I might actually get the motherboard alongside my CPU cooler so that I don't have to take my processor out more then once, found some other websites cheaper then Newegg for certain parts, there is no way in hell I am paying 110 dollars plus shipping for a Corsair H80 on NCIX when I can get it for 95 plus free shipping from Direct Canada.
    same socket, all you should need is a bios update and drop in the new cpu, this is speculation atm as intel hasn't announced anything official on that

    dammit, deltrus beat me to it

    I thought they were socket 2011, looks like I haven't been keeping up to date enough on new technology durr

    Edit: @Deltrus, yes my RAM was in Dual Channel mode, it won't boot in any other configuration

    Fair enough on the RAM, I think typically you just want to have matching RAM matched up 1&3 and 2&4.

    Socket 2011 is Sandy Bridge Extreme and will later this year or early 2013, get Ivy Bridge Extreme.

    Socket 1155 is Sandy Bridge and now is getting some new CPUs called Ivy Bridge.

    I know, it doesn't help make things easy to understand. >_<

    Seems moot for a die shrink, even with a stock cooler the 2600k is fine for most applications, if you are overclocking then you want less heat output, but for me even when I get my H80, if I can get OC temps less then 40 degrees I will be fine with it.

    And with the weather the way it is right now and how cold it's been, my computer running is keeping my room warm on these -18 Celsius nights. If I popped my windows open tonight (assuming they aren't frozen shut), I could probably overclock my computer with the stock cooler and not have a heating issue

    ivybridge is not just a die shrink, they are also implementing 3d transistor gates, which are more efficient and perform better

    Well I can't justify a whole new processor and basically overhauling half my rig just to get a slightly better performing CPU, I am more concerned about my graphics at the moment anyway. I will get a new board and a processor eventually. When I get my full time pay raise I will look into getting an Ivy Bridge processor and a better board, but that won't be for another 6-9 months.

    i've stopped trying to justify purchases, if i want something and i have the funds then i buy it, if i don't have the funds i put it on a list of things i want, and if suddenly i come across some money then i refer to that list

    although, something tells me i'll never get a $15,000 kitten, no matter how long i wait

    You should consider selling them at lower prices to computer forum denizens who have money to spend. :3

    the money i would get is not as nice as walking up and giving someone parts they can only dream of getting, also, giving stuff away rather then selling helps break any attachment you may have to an item

    Neat! What are you planning? Two dual 120 rads in the bottom chamber and a triple 120 rad in top?

    Well, seeing as how I have a car to pay off and I want to do it before the end of the year, RL priorities sometimes overtake my computer building addiction

    Regardless, I am getting close to the half way point in my car pay off so I figure I should have it paid off by the fall. But on my current pay rate I am barely scraping by, when I get my work contract I get a $3 an hour raise so that's an extra 600 bucks a month which will allow me to start putting away from some better parts while saving some money too. Then full time pay 6 months after that is an extra $2 an hour on top of that so ultimately I wind up making a fair bit more then what I am making now, like 12,000 more annually.

    Congrats to the 8 fools who made the ignore list, your ignorance knows no bounds, bravo!

    Your mom is trying to control you even though you're of adult age?

    That's sweet. :P

    Are you trying to tell me to hop in mumble? ;p
