My System Specs

Default My (new to me) processor

So I did it, got a free upgrade from my 965 to a 1055. Yay. I'm just running a very small overclock at the moment. 3.3 GHZ, no voltage increase. It seems like my current cooler wasn't up to the task of running this cpu at 4 GHz with the requisite voltage increase. Plus I ran into problems with my RAM settings (I was getting memory errors when running LINX) so I'll have to do a little more research to figure out how to fix that. So, a little more work to be done, but all in all, I'm happy with the chip. Folding numbers got a nice little boost. It's getting about 50% more points than my 965 quad core was getting, even though it's at a lower frequency (the quad was OC'd to about 3.7). Courtesy of the two extra physical cores, I suppose.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
