Sandy Bridge-E Build Benchmark Results

Benchmarking Custom Sandy Bridge-E Build

After finishing my recent Socket 2011 Sandy Bridge-E Build I ran a few benchmarks to gauge overall performance.  I was not disappointed.  The upgrade crushes my old Core2Duo system in every test.

    This is a sweet build! I just bought a Gigabyte 7870 GHz edition for my custom PC (i7 2600, 16GB RAM, 1TB HDD 7200RPM,, 750W PSU). Upgraded from a 560 Ti, can’t wait to see the results! :)
