    I would bench test it before you do that

    Well, pulled the motherboard out of the Sniper case, installed a stock cooler, and proceeded to attempt a bench test......................










    Fired right up!!!!!!!! :D:D:D

    Whew, I am so frigging glad! After careful consideration I figured it was the fact that the back plate for the CPU water block was crammed so hard into the motherboard tray that it was bending the board. Cut out the tray to release the tension on the back plate, reinstalled the motherboard with the water block and gave it a shot again. This time the system powered right up. :rockout::rockout::rockout:

    So now I am in the process of putting the system baaaaaack together and loading windows, drivers, and Boinc to have it ready when I get back Monday mid day to start kicking some serious ass in crunching:laugh:

    This may be wildly inappropriate, but the fool in me saw the title of this thread and thought:


    "~Frosted flakes are more than good. They're grrrreat!"


    It doesn't solve any problems, but sometimes a good laugh is better than putting your fist through a mobo...

    You know that cpu is screaming at you for a 5ghz overclock. I haven't been able to find the sweet spot to get there with my 3820 on air yet.

    Okay, what the hell? Does the 2500K NOT have Hyperthreading? I am only showing 4 cores working and not 8 like my 2700K shows. Am I missing something here?

    2500k= no hyperthreading. Still a good chip though...

    Really? Give me a break! Frigging for another $25 I could have picked up a 2600K which DOES have Hyper Threading.

    What the F is the big whoop about the 2500K? Because a ton of them will hit 5.0ghz? That still will not compare to a 2600K or 2700K when crunching; right?

    Kind of seems like a big ole POS if you ask me. Hell I could have saved a ton of money, headaches, and work and just went with my x6 AMD or picked up an 8 core AMD!!!

    Had no idea the 2500K didn't support Hyper Threading. That reallllllllly reallllllllllly Pisses me off to be honest.

    Oh well, live and learn and be an idiot I guess!

    Ya mean like this? :D

    2500K is a gaming chip... where the extra cores aren't needed.

    C'mon bud, end this Intel experiment and come back to the other side!:p

    Yea only the I7's have HT stinger. If you want you may can post up a FT thread and trade it for a good clocking I7-920/950 and that would get you 8 threads and over 5K PPD

    One problem with that whole scenario bro, the "i7-920/950" is a socket 1366 chip. The board I have is a socket 1155.

    What I meant was to trade the whole combo for one OR look for a used 2600K and flip the 2500K

    Then the 2600k isn't enough, you want an upgrade and all there is, is the 3770k. Come to the other dark side and go SB-E. At least if you want to upgrade you will have options. :p

    That is an option for sure. Problem is, shit is so tight that I can't even afford to grab a damn 2600K and then sell the 2500:banghead::banghead::banghead:

    Offer up a trade of your setup for an i7-920/X58 setup (or similar)... there may be someone out there who has that setup and is interested in a 2500K.

    Maybe???

    Well, just shot this processor up to 4.5 (45 x 100) on stock voltage! Booted right to windows and running so far. LOL

    Any suggestions on voltage bumps?

    Also being fairly new to the newer generations of Intel, where I would find the voltage setting in the UEFI bios?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dano

    They don't need much. I think my 2600K did 4.5 GHz at like no more than 1.3v. You have the 2700K right?

    No this is on the 2500K chip. I was running it at 4.0 for a little over a week and just bumped it up to 4.5 last night. It has been running at 4.5 now for about 18 hours and still has not gone over 60C running WCG at 80%.

    I would like to try this chip at 5.0ghz but I would imagine it will need a voltage bump. I believe the stock Vcore is 1.3v and I have read never to take it over 1.5v. I just need to know if that is the only voltage bump I need to do. I have read that some are getting 5.0 to 5.2 under 1.4volts!

    This little jewel could be one of the few that will do that.

    I haven't messed around much with my Sandy bro, but for my 2600K to do 4.5 GHz I just raised vcore and that's it. Literally effortless to do 4.5 GHz.
