    Sometimes I'm amazed when I'm reminded when this tech came out. The i7 920 I have sitting in my desk waiting for a board was made in 08...

    Awesome chip Ed! For anyone wondering, this is based on the C2D chip with the G0 stepping!!!

    Many of these are frigging overclocking beasts! A great review can be seen here:

    http://www.neoseeker.com/Articles/Hardware/Reviews/x3210_overclock/

    Hit a very impressive 3.5ghz with the reviewed chip!!!

    IIRC, Rad, bogmali has(d) a p5k. Might be worth a pm. Also unsure if Athlonx2 still has it, a dfi p45 dark jr.

    The P5K I've sold long time ago but I do have an Abit IP35-Pro that is paired with a Q6700 and OCZ 2X2048 DDR2-800 1066. If I can find takers for the CPU and RAM, I will sell it really cheap.

    I now officially have Buck Nasty's previous i7-870/EVGA P55 FTW/4GB DDR3-1600 installed and running. After many CMOS resets and several hours of playing with settings, I think I have figured out how to overclock the darn thing (it's my first LGA 1156 system, be kind). Right now I have it at 173*22 (3813 MHz), 1.3v LLC vcore, 1.3v VTT and 1440 RAM. The VTT I may be able to lower a step or two, but I really had to crank it up to avoid endless reboots and insta-BSODs when load was applied. Supposedly these need more VTT for the higher the BCLK, I'm presuming since uncore is tied to it. Didn't have much time to read OC guides for this platform.

    If you decide orange SATA cables are better than no SATA cables, I have a handful I can send for shipping.

    @Jstn
    Lower core multiplier/ratio one more notch and go up some more bclk. VTT is safe up to 1.33v. Little hint; the 8xx chips have a higher uncore multi than the lower counterparts. :) Also, from what i know tRFC is the key. If you can get 110 or lower at a high bclk is where they will truly start to shine.

    I will check it out today. Unfortunately, it went offline after a few hours with the settings above.

    I also tried lowering the multi but for some reason the board resets itself to the stock multi and lowers the bus speed to get whatever overclock you had selected. Don't know why it's doing that. :(

    Thats alright man. Thats nice of you and your buddy.

    Still on the hunt.Whatever anyone can spare. Even if a few ppl can help me out. I tried checkin the bay but they way over price them for something that comes free with your board already. scams trying to make money on every lil thing. Plus I'm completely broke stilll as jobs are scarce badly around here.

    How much can you get them for locally? I'll be willing to PayPal you a few bucks. And somebody just posted saying they had some, maybe I'll cover the shipping?

    EDIT: theonedub has, check a few posts before this, let me know what you want to do dude.
