hi all

I am in the process of building my 1st PC 3930K. I am reading thru the manual ASUS P9X79 pro. do you disable the EPU switch or enable? I am generally leave my computer on 24/7. I use the computer for video editing and or photoshop. Other than that, it will be idling most of the time. I might play a game once awhile but not often. Will be overclocked to 4.7-4.8Ghz. I did not go with the newer video card because the newer card are not compatible with my video editing program (Sony Vegas Pro) I filled all the fans availabe slot onto the
NZXT full tower. I got all components on hand. The CPU is not here yet but will getting it real soon.
