I'm hoping MSI will be sending me a board soon. I really liked the Z68-GD65.
They have yet to release their X79 heavy weapon afaik, the GD80. now that - is what i expect to see
Im also waiting for the X79 UD9 from GB and some EVGA goodness
Wouldnt the Big Bang be their heavy weapon? And that is being seeded to reviewers in limited numbers from what I was told.
Im hoping the F4 bios solves some bclk issues (which people at hwbot says it does).
UD7 review is posted at OCF. Extreme4-M about to go up, Evga FTW in the hole, and Extreme4 behind it...
You're getting far more boards than I am. Expect me to hit you up in the coming weeks for info, we'll see what we can come up with.
Sad thing si thta i hate to see this 3960X not get used. Too much power consumption for me, for daily use, so it's reviews, or it collects dust, like my 1100T and FX-4100. Kinda sad I think of those three CPUs in the same light.
No doubt the 2500K is cream-de-la-P/W,$/P,OC
We can trade your X for my K... I PROMISE you it will get used like it is supposed to.
Hit me up, my PM box is always open... and you have my email I think (if not hit me up, Its attached to my phone so I will get it quick like, just in case)
For gaming you are completely right, can't think of a better chip than the 2500K actually... part of the fault is the lack of multi threading on games :|
Im enjoying both worlds, an LGA2011 system ready for IVB-E and an LGA1155 ready for IVB
Viva la OC
Me too. I think Earthdog has it covered too, unless he's sold off his boards or given them away.
Ha, how lnog did it take you to figure out 2011 clocking? not much skill needed, fortunately. OC is dead, IMHO, but I wish it wasn't.
took me about 5 seconds and ill describe
1st second - ooh what's this? 3D bios? (my ass 3D but thats another topic) well well
2nd second - huh... kinda familiar
3rd second - dejavu?
5th second - alright lets boot up and see if its stable at 4200Mhz
Still have a Sniper2 and 2600k for a daily driver (IB ready of course).
As for me.. this was easy as well. The first link in this thread regarding need a spread sheet is horse crap. Just use the damn multi or do the the math...
+1. Except I started out at 4.5ghz.
I bought some new M4 x 35mm socket cap screws, unmounted the block and checked the spread on the Noctua paste. Did not look like I had enough on it, as there was about 1/4" to 3/8" on each edge of the IHS that did not get paste. Cleaned up the CPU, applied a more liberal amount of some Artic Cooling MX-4 compound I picked up at MicroCenter yesterday, then bolted the waterblock down with the new screws. I also decided to add a spare 120mm fan to blow air across the block, ram and VRM heatsinks. Temps dropped as much as 10C, so I fired up Asus AutoTune:
Not too bad for a quick shot at it. Idle temps are now in the mid to uppper 30's C.
Just ran a quick IBT test (5 passes). CPU cores 0 & 1 were 72/73C degrees (respectively), while core 5 was only 59C. Is my pressure not even? Which corner of the CPU are cores 0 & 1 on?
Nope its normal for a core to be lower than the others look here i posted this awhile ago i have the same thing going on.
I am so happy i read that. I decided to reseat my cpu block for aesthetics following some advice from '(FIH) The Don' and it was bugging me that my 'core 0' temp was about 5-10 degrees higher than the others.
I initially used the rice grain central blob method for thermal paste (silver based compound) and found a small corner of the HS not covered.
I reseated with the credit card method using a plastic spreader and got a perfectly thin even layer on the full HS. CPU block is also now reoriented 90 degrees. Plugged all back in and ran IBT for 10 passes.
Still the same. Plus the annoying offset Asus use means the core temp is far lower than what 'Core Temp' (and Real Temp) measured.
Is there a better way to adapt the fans in BIOS (such as lower duty fan max temp to 60 from 70)?
Your temps are better than mine the54thvoid better cpu cooler, i reset my CPU as well because i though it was odd 1 temp was lower, i reset using the pea method the 2nd time around and got better temps than the credit card method, Use FanXpet in AI Suite II to set up your fan speeds thats what im using.
Yeah I'm ising FanXpert in AI Suite and i've had no probs withit. It's just a concern that it's reporting lower temps. I figure if i set the BIOS Max Duty temp at 60 degrees for max fan speed of 80% that'll give me 10 degrees of safety room.
Though as you can see, running at 4.2GHZ with my settings only has one core in the 60's so I'm not sweating it.
Interesting info guys, keep it coming.
Anyone try 2nd wave of cpu's, first release was C1? And now it's C2, so anyone try C2 CPU's ?
I thought first would be C0, then D0, but I could be wrong.
Not me. I just got my chip a few weeks back, and I do not have any need for the virtualization support. I am by no means one to overclock something to the brink. I know my chip is good for at least 4.8GHz, and that's good enough for me (at the moment at least).
C1 was release and C2 in January?
Will be probably released close to SB-EP Xeons release, should be the same stepping.
First run. 4.5GHz with Turbo enabled. Used similar settings for Digi+ as the Asus video linked on this thread.
So H100 at the lowest setting is hitting mid 70's and mid setting is just under 70C. Do I just start lowering VCore till i find lowest stable? If you got any numbers/advice I'm happy to try them. This chip clearly uses more volts than the regular SB i'm used to
4.5Ghz you normally need a Vcore in between 1.34-1.38v depending on the quality of your CPU.
