I just love ebay. One open box gigabyte x58a-ud3r, with all accessories, for 120$, that's what i call a deal! So my new mobo is ordered, should arrive by the end of the week. I'll finally be able to get back to folding full throttle!
My 970 doesn't like the asus p6x58d-e it's in now, as i cannot go as high as in my last x58a-ud3r (the one i blew last week). It just refuse to go beyond 4200.
Can anyone tell me what kind of settings and voltages they use for their max 24/7 overclock on a 970? I'm under water, so cooling is not a problem. It's gonna be the volts that will limit me! I know for sure this chip will do 4,2 @ around 1,375 vcore, but i really want it to be run at the max.
Also, anyone noticed a problem in folding with the huge memory bandwidth drop from bloomfield to gulftown?
