Huh I hadn't thought about getting the MSI version. I'm really liking the Z97-G45 motherboard that I got to replace the Asrock Z77 Extreme 4. I'll definitely look into it.

bit late isn't it? I just bought some SkullCandy's that were on sale. Low end, but I'm not an audiophile.
I got a pair of V-Modas for Christmas - they were an Amazon deal of the day like post-Black Friday. I got a $200 pair of headphones for $79 and man are these things well built and they sound better than the pair of Monster DNA headphones I used to use.
 
my old 7950(r9-280)@1150mhz/1575mem got a best score of 1964 on valley extreme. even at stockish clocks you should near 2000 with a 2048 core tahiti.

try ddu to eliminate driver conflicts.

valley extreme my 780@1375mhz got a best of 3389… for reference.

That's exactly why I ditched liquid cooling and went back to the Noctua D14 - sure the heat sink may be gigantic but I've never had a single problem with CPU temps since I got the thing, and I have my 4690K running on a very stable overclock right now. Barely gets above 39'C on idle. My Kraken X61 on the other hand - whole different story. :lol:
