This. Why I am not upgrading until there is something to actually upgrade to.

They say the new Z68 is ivy bridge compatible but I would just get a new board and CPU then just getting a new CPU.
Gotcha, thanks. Now I have to decide lol.

Cool, I wish I knew more about it Grey but if the price difference was very small I would have gone with the Z68 but it was a lot more so.

I would normally agree with you but I have 5 antec 120mm case fans and there on low and my system is very quiet. If I had only 2 or 3 and had to run then higher to get the same air flow I would agree with you and it would be loud.

Thanks dude, I will try and get some pics up although it will probably look the same as what I have now.

I actually like the Tri-Cools. The have a good price/performance/sound ratio. If you're looking for silent, they're the wrong choice.

I have 8 dead tri-cool fans in my closet if anyone wants some. They are the biggest piles of crap ever.

True If I had a i7 1156 or 1366 I would not upgrade to a new system either. I would get a new video card, 24" IPS monitor and a SSD and call it a day.
