    Question i7 990x

    I wanted to update my system to the latest and greatest for my x58 platform so I jumped the gun and ordered the i7 990x. close to 0 new info on this cpu so it's hard to get exited at this point.
    Did anyone else get this cpu or am I alone.

    Can anyone see the LGA 2011 soon? I am expecting it in the 3d quarter of 2011. And a new extreme chipset from Intel to go along with it.

    Got the 990x for friend's rig. It's blazing fast from my i920, but i doubt you see any performance visual improve between 980x.

    intel says Ivy Bridge has always been set for Q4 2011. from what ive seen QPI & IOH will be gone already.and on Waimea bay seen reports that it will only have a 100 mhz base clock.and harder to oc without messing up other hardware.and i'm not sold on SB yet.seen people saying intel might be trying to do away with oc in future. might be a little hope for my 990x down the road

    I have one question and please remember I am not a PC expert. Why would someone spend 1,000USD on a 990X when the 2600K Sandy Bridge is faster , easily overclockable for somewhere in the 300USD range? I do not understasnd this. Is the LGA 1366 better than the LGA 1155 or does the 990X have something special that I am not aware of? Whats the story here?

    It's not faster in everything, and I have yet to see a 2600K OC to 6.8GHz, at least not that I know of.

    6.8GHz is over the top, I will be happy with 4.5 GHz. LOL. Probably need one of those Boreas Chillers for that too.

    Forget the Boreas, go full water cooling as they also look way better than the Boreas in a system.

    I thought the Boreas was full water cooling, just because Stan had it. He knows what I need more than I do. So do you for that matter. Thanks Joel. Time to upgrade my old socket 775 9550, 2 years old now. I bought so many parts and then sold them, becuase I couldnt see well enough to put them together, I am getting old and my eyes are not good enough to see into the case anymore.

    I have told you before just order everything you want and have it shipped to me; I will build it for you and you only need to cover the shipping from here out to you.
