Newb here. Thought I'd say hi and keep you updated on my new 3970X purchase.
I've been running a 3930K at 4.6 (offset 0.055v) for about a year now. Came into a bit of dosh and have splurged on a 3970X, which arrives tomorrow. I'm going to just drop it in and see how far I can push it. Aiming for 5.0, whihc should be enough for me, as I only use my rig for playing MS Flight Simulator X, which is actually harder on the rig than _any_ game I have ever thrown at it. It eats CPUs for breakfast.
Watch this space!
