    I'm curious as to why you would want to turn it off, you're getting better performance at 3.0ghz than 2.8, however slight, and if you're system is stable, then why not?

    If u are speaking of turbo, i know how to turn it off, my question is why turbo seems to be always on, even at idle, it shouldnt, hence my doubts about the settings on this board, but as i said, i left everything at auto, but turbo is always on.

    At 1st i thought that there was some auto overclocking, but now i know that is the turbo option that is always on.

    sidegraded from GTX295 -> 560ti just less heat in room now, could be more silent tho

    Last year I went from my Q9550 @ 4 GHz to 2600K @ 4.4 GHz and also from a GTX 275 to a GTX580

    The difference was like night and day.

    A year later and I'm still thrilled with the way my system turned out. Unless there is some major breakthrough I could see myself with this set up for another 4 years with maybe just upgrading the graphics card eventually.

    I'd call going from the GTX295 -> 560Ti as a slight downgrade...You end up using less power, gaining DX11, but probably lost a few frames. 448 Core would've probably been a side grade.

    I went from a Q6600 @ 3.6 to a Core i7 920 @ 3.6 and it was a massive increase. I had a 4870x2 at the time and my fps in literally all the games I played at the time went through the roof. In COD4 I went from 155fps with the Q6600 to 450fps with the Core i7 920.

    The only reason I went for my current i7 960 was because it was from a mate on the cheap and it is a D0 where as my 920 was a C0 chip so it overclocks better at lower volts. Plus I sold my 920 for £100 too :D

    Reading this thread I realized.....I upgrade too frequently.

    I've had 4 processors and 4 graphics cards in the last 2 years....

    lol within that period I would have had only gone through 0 CPU upgrades and maybe smaller side upgrades of more storage or what not. I upgrade GPUs every 2 generations give or take.

    I've owned around 20 graphics cards in the last 12 years....and probably close to that number in processors.

    Must have a good 560Ti then. My GTX 295 died, and if EVGA offered me a GTX 560Ti as replacement, I would've flipped on them. Luckily, they (like me) deem the GTX 570 as a sidegrade to the 295.

    That's a racist comment. I'm just pointing out that if a video card manufacturer considers 295 <-> 570, then a 560Ti would not be a side grade.
