Like was said, just use CPU-Z and you'll want to check your load vcore since you've got your powersaving still on.

I would gather it would be pretty common to be able to run the powersaver stuff...

I've been waiting for a worthy upgrade myself. There just isn't anything really worthwhile over an overclocked i5 2500k for gaming. The only thing that has somewhat enticed me was more sata 3 ports....

Can be, but not always a problem. Like I said, I'd just up the ram to 1.55v as it will probably just consume 1 watt more. Sometimes you might get issues in a very specific game at a very specific...

Yeah it looks fine, the main problem will be that the ram is rated for the two sticks rather than four sticks. Four sticks are harder to run at those clocks/timing, so I'd up the voltage to 1.55v....

I never use XMP and always set my ram manually, though my understanding is XMP just does it automatically. Don't think there is anything wrong with XMP, but I've been manually setting my ram for a...

Its the almost exactly the same. The biggest difference is the timings for the lower clocks, but really doesn't make a difference.

Was a sale on 2400mhz 10-12-12-32 ram for $232 after tax. I use it for 20gb ramdisk that I run a batch file to copy over various games for whatever I'm going to play. Haven't upgraded my computer in...

The socket cover should fit almost perfectly with just a tab coming out the bottom so that you could lift it up. Perhaps give us a pic, cause that doesn't sound right if it's not uniform. Should look...

They're saying it's user damage, but where? I'm not sure how you damage a memory slot.

Feel the same way. 2500k here. Because the upgrades for CPU/Motherboard aren't all that useful, I've instead spent it on a 512gb 840 pro early this year and a 7950 early last year ($400). Normally I...

I'd grab a 7850 over a 7770. Benchmark (http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/536?vs=549). Though the price is a bit over $100.

Here's one currently on sale....

Seems like what petteyg359 said. Heats up, warps a bit, fan makes weird noise.

Try using wire ties or coat hanger hooked to something to give it a small lift/support.

I don't think there is a setting to keep the clocks high in CCC. There are 'performance' vs quality settings though.
