This is my old specs:
Intel Core i7 920 2.66GHz LGA1366 CPU [BUSTED]
ASUS P6T X58 Motherboard [BUSTED]
12GB G.Skill RAM (2x 3x 2GB) DDR3
1TB Seagate 7200rpm SATA Hard Drive
Samsung SATA DVD Burner
Sapphire 4670 Graphics Card PCI-Express [BUSTED]
Corsair TX-650 650W PSU
Antec P183 Black Case
So I've been looking at the new Intel Core i7 2600K processors with great interest and I'm almost certain that's the processor I want. However I am in doubt in how to best utilize its power and potentially overclock it since I could easily use the extra power.
1. Which P67 Motherboard would you recommend for this CPU for potential overclocking? Currently I have my eyes on the ASUS P8P67 Evo or the Intel P67 Express.
2. Will my current PSU be sufficient to run an overclocked system?
3. What type of additional cooling would you recommend for an overclocked system? I'm reading some good stuff about the Cooler Master 212+, but would less be sufficient?
4. I need a good-value GPU in the range of 100$.
Finally I should say that this machine needs to run 24/7 at 100% workload on all four cores, so therefore I'm not sure that overclocking will be a good idea due to the already high work stress, so advice on this matter is much appreciated.
If anyone has experience with the actual process of overclocking the i7 2600K, I'd love to hear your experiences with as well.
