I will be looking into another board soon enough...My sound card works every now and then after shutting the comp off.
I think there is a voltage issue throughout the mobo.

thought it was haswell
but yes, I think its coming out first week of June, or around that time frame.
Don't think I'll be building/upgrading anytime soon though. Just placed a pre-order for nvidia shield and saving up for at least a PS4.

I've had my computer on, but haven't really been "on it". Just been installing/patching/flashing, that type of stuff.
and I placed an order for one last week Friday
Est. ship date for the shield is June 30th

seeking some advice
Bios update to my mobo and upgrade from fx 8120 -> 8350 and get h100 for it (upgrading my i7 to an h100i)
or just get a new mobo + intel chip

nothing is wrong with it. I just got used to the speeds of the i7, was considering upgrading my amd cpu to a faster fx 8350 is all. Or if its better to just buy a new mobo and cpu for my amd rig. (turn it into an intel rig)

ok didn't read all the posts but I recently built my first gaming PC and messing around with hackintosh. But I haven't touched it in a month.

Case: Zalman Z11 plus
CPU: intel I7 3770k
MOBO: GA-Z77x-UD3H
RAM: crucial sport 8gb
Storage: 60gb SSD
Storage: toshiba 1tb 7200 rpm
Power supply: Corsair 600w
GPU: ASUS HD7870





Windows score were all 8.3-8.9 (if I remember correctly)
geek bench (32bit free version) is right around 14,000 without overclocking.

Sometime in the next few months I'm going to be getting a new gaming PC. The one I got 3 years ago has had a video card update...but I'm looking for a second beastly box.

I'm also going to be putting together a machine that I'll be using as a Virtual Machine box so that I can run multiple servers in a test environment here at home for programming and SQL testing. It's actually going to be pretty beefy...though I'm still trying to decide what environment to use. Machine will likely have 128-256GB of RAM, and a LOT of processors.
