  1. i7 5820k at 4.4 to 4.6Ghz depending on the time of year. Looking forward to putting my winter OC back on in a few months. Have had no reason to even consider upgrading yet, maybe in about a year from now there will be something compelling. I'm open to both AMD and Intel. I want to see what AMD does with the followup to Ryzen, hoping they can grab a few more % on IPC. We shall see what happens. Though I'm very happy, I can game and multitask at the same time with no slow downs, which is all I wanted out of it. This is the only time in 20 years of computing that I've gotten a true, golde
  2. Generally I hear people say, for a 24/7 overclock stay below 1.4, preferably 1.35. That's from all the tech tubers and some of the major players on forums.
  3. It has good wheels and tires, as far as exhaust, I have no idea. I tried something aftermarket in the past but was extremely disappointed. Right now it's the stainless Saab Sport I think, no sound at all. Any suggestions? I don't want to delete, I like it being rather quiet, would just like to hear a bit of something because it's completely silent right now.
  4. I'm trying to think of the next mod I should do for my Saab. Since Saabs are on topic atm, any suggestions? Here's a pic and an old video I put of the engine bay on youtube. Basically it has the Viggen turbo and spoiler, manual boost controller, built head, otherwise stock really, just a few little things, oh and CAI. 1995 2.0T
  5. Right now as I save to buy a house, I don't have room, or time to do anything nice, except the PC itself, which is very good. Here is my setup, and two fantabulous beers that I've had on back order for months. i7 5820k @ 4.4Ghz 32GB DDR4 2400 Avexir MSI X99A SLI Plus MSI GTX 980 @ 1504Mhz 256GB Sanforce SSD 3TB Toshiba HDD LG Ultrawide IPS | Asus generic af 1080p TN 400 watt Logitech 2.1 Spkrs H55 Corsair AIO and 5 case fans PSU will be changed in a few weeks, it was a cheap but reliable option to get me by temporarily. Cougar 600W
  6. I will almost always prefer a manual, but I agree, it depends. There is a huge variety of auto's now days.
  7. Drafting is an absolutely awful idea, under all circumstances. It's also illegal nearly everywhere. I learned the hard way..
  8. I can score over 1300 if I leave speedstep off, so it sits at 4.4Ghz at all times, because of the amount of time it takes the Cpu to crank up to full speed. But as it sits with speedstep, I get between 1274 and 1276.
  9. Oh the joys of Northeast winter with no garage or off street parking. ...yup the inspection ran out in August. It doesn't get driven often, though it is going in the shop Friday for some work and inspection. Fully street legal.
  10. I would go ahead and do the timing chain, tensioner/guides etc etc as well, especially if you've crossed 75K miles. You'll be happy you did, I have broken 3 chains on Saab's over the years.
