Re: mATX Overclocked Gaming mini tower - Which case?

I'm tempted to get the Sugo, just because it's smallest. Do you think my desired system would fit and overclock ok in that case?

mATX Overclocked Gaming mini tower - Which case?

Re: Gaming TJ08-E + i5 2500K + GTX580

Yes let us know how overclocking goes. I'm looking to build a similiar system only with a 2600k and GTX 580 with stock cooler. I'm hoping to keep a rock stable 24/7 4ghz overclock without too much noise and heat. I want a matx mini tower, i was leaning towards an Antec mini p180, and I'm considering...

Re: Zotac mini-ITX Z68 motherboard

Re: Sandy Bridge CPUs: Intel Core i5-2400, i5-2500K and i7-2

SNB-E for socket 2011 comes out this fall. I personally don't see the point of such a platform when 22nm Ivy Bridge will release for socket 1155 in the Winter. Ivy bridge will have 16 PCI-e 3.0 lanes so SNB-E will only have the advantage of 4 channel RAM and 6 core CPUs. Ivy Bridge will likely get t...

Re: Intel Core i3-2100T & Core i5-2400S Low Power CPUs

Why not undervolt AND underclock the 2100? See if it's basically the same chip as the 2100T. Rumour is the 2100T is binned for better efficiency, undercloking and undervolting a 2100 could reveal the truth.
