So, I've managed to get a stable OC of my i7 860 from 2.8GHz to 3.7GHz with the Noctua NH-D14. I can't believe that I basically got a 900 MHz upgrade for $80...

Although now I'm pretty sure that I won't need to upgrade for years, which is good! (but not as exciting)

Congratulations! :D

This is honestly where I'm at with my 920. Only it's stock. :lol:

I think I'll sooner hit a RAM limitation than a CPU one to be honest. And I think I'll sooner hit a GPU limitation than a RAM limitation. :lol:

Kinda' nice to have a rig that'll last ya', isn't it? :) :lol:

It sure is! My Q6600 + 4gb DDR2 + 8800GT lasted me over 3 years . And it wasn't all that high end in 2007. So I'm hoping this build will last me until the next generation of consoles!
