    Well its odd man. The MSI board has some dip switches built on the board to boost the FSB from 133 to 166 or 200. I am not sure if that automatically bumps the Vcore up or not. I never messed with the Vcore in the bios at all.

    You were questioning the capabilities of a Dark Knight.... I will just give you my personal use and that's about a 10C difference between it and an H50. Oh and yes it would. Have LLC enabled?

    An H50 will cool about 10C better? If that is the case I am gonna find one of those. That would probably make all the difference in the world.

    And, LLC? Not sure. Is that in the bios setting bro?

    Loadline calibration. You really need to give me full system specs or update your User CP. :p

    And yes 10C, but that's on my 655k (2c/4t).

    The full specs are:

    Motherboard: MSI X58M

    Processor: i7 930

    Memory: 6gb DDR3 1600

    I am not sure which bios version the board is running to be honest. LOL. May have to check that and find out if there is any updates that address heat or OC'ing issues. :p

    As far as my system specs on my profile, this is being used for mainly a cruncher and not a day to day used system. It will be put up for just crunching once I get the bugs and what not worked out.

    Those switches probably do raised vcore or some other voltage settings. Has to I'm pretty sure. JR can probably better assist with this though.

    I'd go with an H60. That's what I put the i7-950 on. I cranked it up to 4ghz w/ no problem at all. Not sure what the diff is but I know the H60 has a copper plate. That can make a noticeable difference.

    Probably will have to bring Brandon or Solaris into this thread. My knowledge of X58 is VERY limited.

    If you haven't already, read through the guide to X58 we have here on TPU: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=108526 That thread is what taught me everything about X58 when I first had it.

    Do not ho high with certain voltages or it will become unstable due to over voltage. QPI can be low or be high depending on the chip you use. try a 21x191 for 4GHz with 1.3V to start out. QPI/VTT 1.25V, NB at 1.2V

    One thing that helped me stable out at over 4GHz was raising the PCI speed to like 102-103 from default of 100. Also along with that bumping up the Southbridge voltage a bit too.

    Not sure if London, but he is on the other side of the pond for sure.

    Live in London UK as a few here have correctly said :) International shipping isn't a problem though, just takes a few more days than normal really.

    Fans will be going to ThE_MaD_ShOt shortly. No takers on the other stuff yet..

    Anything of interest just PM me, I do literally want to send this stuff to someone in our team (to reduce number of spare tech in my room and help out others). All free of charge (though suppose the routers need a cheap power supply)

    And..........Found a nib Corsair H50 for $40 shipped!!! Unopened and all that:rockout:

    Jr, your soooooooooo correct man, now the system is running mostly in the low to mid 50's and has not gone over 60C!!!!!!! Frigging awesome!!!:rockout::rockout::rockout:

    Now my question is: Would overclocking this chip really make much of a difference in PPD numbers crunching? If not then I really am not going to mess with Overclocking the chip. If it would make a big difference then I will. :p

    Would make quite a bit of a difference actually. I don't have any numbers for you though. Good to see you liked my suggestion :toast:

    If that is the case then I probably will have to jump in and OC this sucker!

    Now on a side note:

    New Crunching rig pending getting all the parts. Wanting to see what everyone thinks about this. :toast:

    BNIB unopened i7 2700K

    BNIB unopened pair of GTX465's

    BNIB unopened Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3

    BNIB unopened G.Skill DDR3 1600 RipJaw X's @16gb

    Slightly used Swiftech Apogee XT

    Slightly used Western Digital 300gb Velicoraptor

    All things running about $850 total.


    Is that a good deal? I thought it was to be honest. :toast:
