Yeah, I did some reading after you alerted me. I'm fairly disappointed with the overclocking of ivy bridge. Either way, the 3770k ships at 3.9GHZ (turbo mode). My current stable OC of my i7 920 is 4 GHZ, and it's becoming less and less stable by the day. So that's already an upgrade. 4.6-4.7 will probably be my max. But every GHZ is an improvement over my 920.
Very excited to get my Catleap. It should arrive in a couple days
. Sucks to hear about your AG coating. That is odd, considering most people love the fact that they lack that coating. I just got back into playing BF3 the other day because I know it's the only game that will pretty much wow me at the Catleap's res. Especially considering how unoptimized Crysis 2 is. I also may replay Witcher 2.
As for Mech keyboards. It's more-so the juice isn't worth the squeeze. They are extremely loud. In the past, I wouldn't have cared at all because I would be just some nerd locked up in my room. But if I was trying to game or even socialize on my computer while my girlfriend was watching a movie or trying to read she would go ape shit. They just don't feel good enough to the touch, in my opinion, to justify that noise. Regardless of how much better everyone tells me they are. I do think they look sexy as hell, tho, in most cases.
Thanks again for letting me know about the Korean monitors. Not even a few weeks ago I was complaining to someone that anything further than variations of 1080p monitors haven't really budged in price at all. It blew my mind to read all the reviews on the shipping speed, quality and price of these monitors. I let a few of my friends know about the monitors as well and agreed to be the guinea pig. I also opted to buy the pixel perfect version, but if I buy another, I will just buy the normal version as someone pointed out: "If you have 3 million pixels, who cares if 2 are dead? Especially if they're black". Most people said they didn't arrive with dead pixels anyway.
I'm also curious to see your system specs. What GPU are you running?
