Alright, thought I needed a bit of a change from AMD, so I got the best/cheapest i5 base system...
Gigabyte P55M-UD2 .. £80
Intel Core i5 750 OEM .. £140
2 x 2GB Ripjaw 2000 CL9 .. £72
Modded 775 Stock cooler .. PITA, but free
Pics of the modded Stock Intel 775 cooler (E2180)
3Ghz prime95 stable @ 1.056V (VID 1.175V)
4Ghz bootable @ 1.235V
Unfortunatly CPU intensive benchmarks would crash instantly
4Ghz benchmark stable @ 1.280V
4.3Ghz @ 1.360V
Waiting for better cooling before I try anything else...
I am impressed!!!!!!
