    Post your SSD benchmarks using Blackmagic Disk Speed Test

    Not SSD, but I thought I'd post it anyway. I'm running 2 x 1TB Seagate Barracuda's in Raid 0 on my Mac Pro 2008. I was surprised with the performance I was getting. But obviously SSD's will still be faster in random reads/writes.

    ASUS pq321 31" 4K Monitor

    Avoid Asus Monitors. I own an Asus PB278Q 27" 2560x1440 monitor, I had to get mines replaced for the third time to get a decent panel without dead, stuck pixels & yellow tint issues. What's worse is Asus wasn't willing to replace a single one for me (only repair), despite it being under a week...

    Just Upgraded to 5850 from 5770, same scores =S

    Looks like the card is working perfectly, the Heaven Benchmark shows quite an improvement, also tried Mini Racers game and saw a 30FPS boost, so clearly am seeing the performance difference.. I'm guessing benchmarks such as cinebench and xbench are pretty much inaccurate and useless...

    Just Upgraded to 5850 from 5770, same scores =S

    Just ran the Unigine Heaven Benchmark and It looks like I am getting a boost of performance.. So I'm guessing the Cinebench & Xbench scores are inaccurate? Heaven Benchmark Score 5770 - 817 (1080P with default settings) 5850 - 1262 (1080P with default settings) Those look about right.. Hoping...

    [SUCCESS] Fractal Mac - 5.40Ghz i5-2500k - Maximus IV Gene-Z

    Yeah I'm wondering the same 5.4GHz seems impossible especially on air cooling. Or perhaps you haven't checked for real stability yet? The maximum I achieved on my Z68 Motherboard was a 4.7GHz Prime 95 (Small FFT's) Stable for 12 Hours.. Sadly my Z77M D3H has no option for cpu voltage...
