    That's a real beauty without a doubt.

    What system did you upgrade from?
    Are you an overclocker? Have screen shots of your OC results? Please post and share your OC experience!

      Thanks for the kind words. My last machine was a MSI God Like Gaming carbon with a i7-6950X Corsair Dominator Platinum 3200MHz memory and the same Nvidia Titan Xp. Yes I am a overclocker and I had to upgrade my power supply to a Corsair AX1500i because of the power draw of this processor. So I will be overclock to bench mark standards in the next few days. I installed my PSU last night and ran the CPU up to 4.7 GHz@1.215v water temp at 14c no issues and have plenty of head room. When I get some bench marks I will post. By the way there is a memory bench mark above and I got to say I am impressed with this G.Skill kit.
