32GB of 1333mhz ddr3 for $359; less than the $500+ I paid for my first 16MB of 30 pin DRAM. It OC's well.
I've been running this cpu at 4.2-4.6GHz for a while; it won't recover from hibernation over ~4.3GHz.
I'm still using the cooler in the pic; Air cooling with heatpipes, and the fans are on auto.
I can't hear them over the video cards, lol. I have the 2x 7970 cards overclocked as well.
BTW, guys: I have yet to have anything use over ~8GB of memory; not even Crysis 3, google earth, etc.
I have three screens in eyefinity, a 5760x1200 desktop, even for games that don't support it, lol.
I've learned to edit some serious config files...
If I were buying new monitors, I would get a larger central monitor, and use two smaller monitors in portrait mode that matched the big ones vertical resolution, placed on each side.
A 40" monitor is too big for the main one, lol.
One of my friends screwed himself; the pixelization is obvious at desktop distances.
The 24" ones I have are ok, but I think matching them up with a larger display in portrait mode might be better.
I want a 35" 3d plasma monitor for gaming; my 60" is TFB, and causes seasickness when playing games in 3d mode.
Heck, a 60" TV is too big for porn, lol.
