Motherboard and CPU upgrade better then a new video card
I just piched up a new ASUS Rampage IV Extreme and a Intel 3930K. The funny thing is my 3930K default clock is 3300MHZ in the motherboard settings it shows 33 for the clock setting and when I hit F5 for Optimal defaults it still comes up as 3.3Ghz. When it comes to overclocking 5.2Ghz is what I get any higher the manual says I need extreme cooling which is sub 0 and I can do the 5.2 at only 1.42 volts all my freinds and other posts show at least 1.475 to 1.5 volts or more. Things run great at 5.2 Ghz when you consider I jumped up from a i5 750 @4.3GHz @ enough voltage to melt two motherboards (ASUS) and the f**king Foxxcom sockets. I jumped from 11,000 to well over 13,000 with a pair of EVGA Classified's not even overclocked 822/1941. They will overclock 993/2341 max for the EVGA Precision utility and with the E-Leet utility set to 1.113 from the default 1.013 for both cards. I just wish I could figure out how to flash the bios to 2.0 volts since hey are liquid cooled and never go over 25C unload and hours of destrying that anything that gets in the way. BF3 runs between 122 and 193 FPS. Hope to see you on the battle field.
