Overclocked and under water. I've had it go a bit higher for benching, but I had to ramp the volts up massively after 4.8GHz.

If you have the money, Hex-core. The H80 is rather schiit though. I'm not looking to upgrade my base system(CPU+ board) until Haswell-E, hopefully for an octo-core intel K chip.

When you parody 'Nobody Home' by Pink Floyd into 'No Jude Home'

I've got a wooden cabinet holding my LP's in
I've got a bag with interconnects in
When I'm a good boy they sometimes throw me a record in
I got rubber bands keeping my rig together
Got those late 60's blues.
Got 13,000 records in my cabinet to choose from
I've got vacuum tubes
And I've got balanced ouputs
I've got amazing powers of amplification
And that is how I know
When I try to get through
On my headphones to you
There'll be no Jude home
I've got the obligatory 'Kind of Blue' LP
And I've got the inevitable shorted cables
All down the cord of my favorite pair of Grados
I've got soldering burns on my fingers
I've got a magnepan speaker rig
I've got an electrostatic rig to prop up my mortal remains
I've got wild listening ears
I've got a strong urge to upgrade
But I've got nothing better to go to
Ooooh Babe when I pick up my headphones
There's still no Jude home
I've got a pair of Orpheus 'phones
And I've got fading tubes.

ykyaaw you realize how big an impact your mood and diet have on your ears. Me + no sleep +grumpy + bad diet = I HATE COLORED CANS [my ears get stupidly sensitive and assine]

 

with me in a good mood and with proper sleep and foos, I'm not so anal about teh music and so I enjoy the extra mids ect...

 

that and my car speakers sound terrible... yet great...

You know you're an audiophile when you get terribly upset when you lend your amp at an audition station and the first thing they do is turn up the bass and gain knob and the volume knob to the max. (and it became so loud it their demo K67 became a set of portable speakers, they are killing their ears, its leaking way more than me using grados!)basshead.gif

I'm really debating if I want to bring my w1000x to the meet, as they are kinda fragile, in that I had to WARP the headband to hit my head, which means it might not fit osme one elese head and they might warp it to thier brain e.e 

 

ykyaaw you have dreams of auditioning cans [it's amazing how the brain can translate words into sound, I dream't of listening to the dt 990 b4 I got it and well it sounded like what I dreamt it did q.q... freaky stuff]

you cringe at people talking about how beats is amazing.

that's not being an Audiophile, that's just being a decent human being
