    Nice chip from the looks of it :toast:

    Gonna drive over to the Boston/Cambridge Microcenter tomorrow morning, like once it's open. So it'll be all quiet and I'll be able to look at all the CPU's and choose the one I want :p

    Edit: New chip is crap. 1.34v for 4.5ghz. Was actually kind of mad. Lost the lottery big time, lol.

    Dude is that the new chip you got?

    3227 is the worst batch period no good chips at all according to Dumo, the master binner.

    That is worth returning and paying the restocking fee.

    Trust me, I already knew that. Tried to boot at my old settings and it was already at 1.3v :shadedshu

    I don't really feel like driving back down to Micro tho. It's an hour long drive. Maybe next week, lol.

    running a set of these
    @1866@1.45 for testing they will do 2133@1.50 no prob even 2400 but for that need to push the v's to 1.60 that's just going to Kill them being rated @1.35 ..
    Going the grab a set of these over the weekend to play with next week.
    Working on the big rad today [pics] picked it up yesterday $5 :roll:. Pressure tested ,no leaks,need to fix the fittings for the 1/2in tubing & maybe a paint job to pretty it up.....DONE

    Hey......lagunaX........ it's the Brit with the chip.

    Been running your chip at 5GHz @ 1.368Vc (Offset mode, LLC Ultra) overnight with a 12 hour Prime Blend run. RAM is at 2000 which is not too bad:)

    Will try IBT and 3DMark11 after work.

    The meter is at 1.351v, connected to the mbd. Is that a better (truer?) value for Vcore?

    As you can see I'm using the latest PC case for testing:D.

    Awesome Newhit!

    I had a feeling that chip could do more with liquid cooling.

    Sigsev - you could probably go for 4.6ghz your temps are ok.

    Awesome results. You are running a fixed vcore OC correct? What settings did you use for 4.8 oc?

    I'm currently 1.236 vcore CPU-Z @ 4.5 GHz

    and the only setting I changed were set vcore to normal in bios and offset of +0.035 for DVID

    running below 80c.

    Should all the other setting be set to normal or manually set their values?

    You can set ram to XMP.
    Turn on all EIST/C1 states BUT turn off thermal throttling.
    Turn off PLL overvoltage.
    Turn off virtualization unless you use it.
    That's pretty much it for the lower overclocks, set other stuff to auto or optimal.

    I'm not new to liquid cooling (double rad this and triple rad that:)) but the "NZXT Kraken 60" liquid cooler is a good starter kit giving reasonable temps even at the 5GHz level.

    I'll probably reduce the chip to 4.8GHz for 24/7 use. I know there isn't much between 4.8 and 5.0 in the real world.

    Don't forget the $19 warranty so you can trade it in for Haswell for full retail paid value later on...

    Don't think they'll let me since I'm just returning my #3227C383 and getting another.
