    i5-3570k : not bad but a little disappointed...

    My retail E1 chip is like the Tweaktown 3570k - no dice above 4.6ghz - up to 1.36v and still not stable at 4.7ghz.

    However, the sweet spot seems a decent 4.6ghz at 1.3v, load temps low 80's.

    So far, not bad but a little disappointed.

    Not a bad chip at all but doesn't clock as high as my 4.8ghz 2500k and 2600k AND runs at higher temps.

    Still Prime95'ing...

    Is that on air or water?

    Damn, and I thought my 3820 at 1.4v @ 4.75ghz ran hot but I don't even get close to 80*C, loaded I get about low 70s.

    Honestly, the 3820 is a hell of a deal for SB-E. For limited multi it has been a pretty good overclocker. Just give it 133mhz bclk and a single bump on the multiplier and you're at 4.75ghz @ 1.4v give or take some other settings depending on the rest of your rig.

    I missed out on a 499.99$ ASUS P9X79 + i7 3820 combo a few days ago :( FML

    I wish I were in the US as it's cheaper than that at MC lmao

    I have one of those retail chips here just waiting on my M5G mobo to arrive tomorrow. I may fire it up with some watercooling to see what the temps look like before I bolt on the SS.

    Ffffff. I love my P9X79 Deluxe. Cadaveca recommended it, and let me tell you, it is a whole lot of motherboard.

    How's the Wi-Fi on that board?

    I haven't used it a whole lot so I'm not sure how fast it will go. It only does 2.4ghz, but it connects to 802.11n. The range on it is pretty good. It picks up just as much as my Macbook Pro if not more, so I would say pretty good so far.

    Wi-Fi is nice for laptops mainly, pure gaming machine calls for a cable- much faster...

    Looks like that 3d transistor technology doesn't love higher volts... it is also an engineering sample no? Maybe the later units will clock better.

    I'd have to put holes in the walls to make it happen xD I'm in the opposite diagonal corner of where the router is. The distance isn't all that much though

    Looks like I should at least start a "backup plan" for SB-E... :/

    I hope that when the retail chips come out, especially the 3770K, they are not nearly as hot and have an extra 3-400mhz in em.

    Finally some retail completely tested :toast:

    I think this is exactly what you can expect...now imagine the heat of additional HT...3770K won't do any better imo...(and YES I know ;) )

    This is already Retail and this is what will be in the stores for the next 1-2 month at least.
    I really hope for improvements like you but this might still take some time.

    Everyone seemed to talk down to me when I said to everyone that IVB will generate more heat than SB and was going to be a major issue for over-clocking. Wait, what is that? The IVB i5 runs hotter than my SB-E at a lower overclock? I was hoping I was going to be wrong, but physics doesn't lie. Smaller circuitry = more heat even if the CPU uses less power.

    I was afraid of that also from the very beginning and it won't get better unless we see some serious decreases of voltage anytime soon.

    Regarding CPU steps ~10 years ago we should have 0.8V stock by now but due to the fact intel is introducing completely new stuph with IVY
    it might take another 1 year to unleash its full potential.

    default vcore of 0.9 would be nice with a new stepping...

    It's good; I game on it every night. In the nearly 5 months I've been using the board, it's dropped connection just once, and to me, that's what matter for WiFi. I ahve a 19Mb connection, and the Wifi will use it all without problems.


    Thanks for the info, SoF, good to know. Hopefully it will improve over time, or you jsut got a poor batch. Perhaps that's why they are getting away with the early release...although that doesn't quite make real sense..:laugh:

    1.36v? Push that sucker...and get better cooling!

    Yeah, seems like a leaky chip, which bodes well for the extreme overclocking crowd. No wonder you have seen a few of these sniff 7Ghz.

    Just needs to be kept cool is all and it will scale. These tend to like PLL voltage too up high.. real high. ;)

    I don't understand. I thought Ivy Bridge isn't released yet, at least that's what i saw on intel site.
