I have a i5 760 too, will be interested to hear how much of an upgrade this is for you.

Is LGA 1150 cross-compatible with 1156, or did you have to change mobo too?

+edit+ Some googling leads me to believe you must have had to replace the mobo..

Geezus :shock:

Let me know if you do plan on replacing that GPU anytime soon, eh? :razz:

Just an idea here.
Many of us upgrade hardware on a regular basis if they have the means. Many of your old replaced cards, etc. are still an improvement for some people who may be a bit more financially challenged, shall we say. Perhaps we can offer these old items for sale or barter to squadmates first before posting to ebay. What do you think? Entirely voluntary, no peer pressure.

Yes it should sorry :???:

Your right about my old mobo tho its: i5 760 @ 4.1 ghz on a GA-P55A-UD4 motherboard plus 4g of ram its pre overclocked and its been running fine since 2010 so if any one dose want it let me know.




Oh and on a side note I've had to give overclockers.uk a ring today to stick a little more ram on for me :Corsair Vengeance Pro Silver 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-14900C9 1866MHz Dual Channel

Any news yet on the performance?

Planning on building a new system this year so would be interested in your experience.
