That will be a nice upgrade. Enjoy!

So far, I'm getting 4.6 Ghz at 1.26v. Temps are around 80 when stress testing. I'm using my good old Thermalright Ultra 120.

So far, the most impressive thing is the boot time to OS. It used to take me 50-60 seconds to boot and now it's 14 seconds. I'm using the same SSD (Mushkin Chronos).

I can't wait to try a demanding game. I wish I had more spare time!
