added a second 7970 ghz vapor x 3gb. Got the cpu at 4.5hz and 1.325v. Got the gpu clock at 1200 and vram at 1600 and gpu volt at 1300. Ram is clocked to the specified 1600mhz and cas 8 (8-8-8-24). I got the perfect pixel crossover 27q 2560x1440 monitor on ebay from redcap for $400. It came quickly and is indeed perfect. You have to get an eu to us adapter plug though. I got 3 for $5 on ebay. Crysis 3 is beautiful in 1440p. Getting 60 fps in crysis 3 with 8xmsaa and all ultra (the highest possible settings). very pleased with every part, although if i did it again for the cost i would have gotten a water cooler. Zalman is ok though....its quiet and at 4.5 ghz keeps it below 85c on prime 95. corsair water cooled is the way to go. Also get the absolute best thermal paste that does alot, heard gelid and indigo extreme and collobarate labs ultra or something were best.also get high quality case fans and make sure they point the right way before u screw them in! I waited for each part to go on sale so saved about 10-$20 each part, saved at least $300 that way or more. Make sure u turn off intel turbo boost if u are overclocking cpu.
edit* added more ram, and a EVGA gtx 1080 FTW acx 3.0 GAMING GPU, a hybrid SSHD 1tb. super awesome. overclocked monitor to 64hz lol.
