    Just built my hackintosh yesterday and it's running great!

    i7 3770K
    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5 TH board
    2x8GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600
    EVGA GTX 670
    2x Samsung 840 Pro SSD (one for OS X, one for alt OS) + WD Black 2TB for storage
    Noctua NH-D14 CPU cooler
    Corsair 650W modular psu
    Fractal Design Define R4 case
    Dell Ultrasharp U2410

    Feels great to actually have saved up for something nice. Hopefully I can get the i7 up to 4.54.8GHz stable when I start messing with that kind of thing

    That's a pretty nice setup you got there! ^_^

    I think it's kinda disappointing how CPU's in the Intel i7 series haven't been able to come pre-clocked in over at 5GHz as standard, cuz would be epic if they did, so then when you take to over clocking it, you'd be able to jump it up to around 5.66GHz. ^_^

    I've seen folks with i7 Extremes being able to overclock up to 5GHz, but burns out faster with it drawing more energy.

    <insert obligatory "GHz are meaningless">

    My computer is p. okay; it's got a high-end i7 which is good.

    i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
    AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB
    1TB Seagate Barracuda (assuming 7200RPM since this is a desktop HDD)
    8GB DDR3

    Don't know much else; bought this from Dell.ca.

    Eyy, same cpu and cooler. How's your experience been OCing Ivy Bridge with the Noctua? Have you ever pushed it further than 4.5?

    Honestly, my experience with the 3770 and overclocking has been pretty awful. 4.5 has pretty much been my limit in terms of stability, and it still makes it past 70C even after I added two additional 120mm fans to the top of the case. From what I've read some chips perform far better, but on the whole Ivy Bridge ends up running a heck of a lot hotter than Sandy Bridge unless you have the guts to delid the thing and work around Intel's shoddy new method of attaching the integrated heat sink.

    I built my first computer over the weekend. Was really nervous the whole way through and there were about half a dozen instances of me thinking I broke something along the way, but eventually success! My first computer.

    i7-3820 3.6GHz
    ASUS Sabertooth X79
    Zalman CNPS11X Cooler (had to get a separate mounting kit, but it worked out)
    8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600
    Western Digital HD 500GB
    Samsung SSD 128GB
    EVGA GeForce GTX 680 4GB

    And then splurged for a BenQ XL2420T monitor because I play a lot of games and really wanted a 120hz monitor.

    I've heard similar experiences, and thankfully my expectations aren't too high. Even going up to 4.5 will save a goodchunk of time on long renders.
