  1. With some better cooling I've now reached 4.2 GHz on both CPUs. The HWBot record is currently at 899Cb ugggh..
  2. Xeon X4440 and X4450 don't exist so perhaps double check that. Overclocking capabilities with stock coolers is always limited if you're going to raise Vcore. But as long as temps stay reasonable you of course change the clockspeeds.
  3. Personally I want the max meme density for better effectiveness

    is 240hz worth it

    It is certainly noticeable for the trained eye, but there is not a difference as great as going from 60 to 120Hz. Source: I have one.

    Upgrade to dual x5460s?

    For gaming you're probably better off getting a single socket board with OC capabilities as single thread performance on Nehalem chips is pretty lackluster even compared to Sandy Bridge. Most games really benefit from greater IPC.

    What @NelizMastr said. You also get the added benefits of DDR3 and possibly SATA 3 if you get a quality board.

    Lmao why is there a second chip on the gpu?

    Would have been cool, but no that wasn't case.

    Lmao why is there a second chip on the gpu?

    It's a display chip for driving digital displays and has RAMDAC for driving analog displays. Was primarily done to simplify the already big G80 chip iirc.
  9. This one is not for the list, but wanted to give an update for those interested. I wanted to see if I could get a nice safe OC for daily use on these chips and 4GHz appears to always need 1.4+V. However when I turned things down a tad I got 3.9GHz using only 1.325V. I also got the 667MHz FBDDR2 to 820MHz using 5-5-5-18 timings.
  10. Just wow. Feel free to spend your money as you desire, but don't come here asking for advice if that's the level of discussion we're dealing with.
  11. Absolutely not. If you intend to buy it purely to improve your gaming performance, you're better off practicing with what you have now. Increased refresh rate will have very little effect on that after 120Hz and higher.
  12. There is a difference, but it's faar more subtle. 60 to 120Hz is a big leap in terms of smoothness, but after that the law of diminishing returns begins to apply. And that's from someone who has a 240 Hz display.

    So, lets talk about monitors.

    Personally I'm waiting for OLED to finally make it's way to consumer monitors. I upgraded from a massive 22" CRT to my EIZO FG2421 120Hz VA monitor as it offers what I mainly look for in a display; high refresh rate and fantastic contrast (a real 5000:1 in this case). While IPS has gotten a lot better, it won't beat VA for contrast, so for me it's going to have to be OLED. As far as resolution goes I'm quite fine with 1080p at around 23". 4K would be nice, but I don't think having a 40" screen on my desk would make for a comfortable experience.
  14. A very big one. For a 1080 you'll want at least an i5 8600.
