yer go for it if its free why not
I, for one, am interested in the specifics of your setup.
aw... come on. i really need the help here.
as for the phase topic.
a vapo LS, mach2 GT, ocz cryo-z or similar will not hold the load of a i7 or and quad at that. you need to get a custom built phase from a reputable builder. it will cost you $800-$1400 depending on who does it and then you have to pay shipping which is NOT cheap by any means.
there is little to no maintinence but the cost of running it for long periods of time may shock you. of course you have to insulate your mobo very well to prevent killing anything... which is sorta a PITA if you've never done it before.
Thanks!! Fit's I know what you mean there is more to it than just buying the unit (would be a Xmas present)..just can not see any real benefit over WC 24/7 and the SS would only be used now and again.
I think my head is running away here!!
if you want a DAMN GOOD phase PM piotres over at XS. he's one of the best phase/cascade builders and he's not TOO far from you. poland i think.
this is dual channel NOT tripple channel....
can you disable that throttling im seeing everyware? if i clock it at 4.2Ghz and it goes back to like 2.3 that will aggrivate me im hoping you have speed step enabled for personal preferance?
if you disable it you cant get turbo mode to work.
and all turbo mode does is up the multi to 21 instead of 20 right?
Well guys after much frustration with TEMPS i have found what i think is a TEMP
i can deal with for now 'till i can get my hands on a Swiftech GTZ'. As i have
mentioned in diff thread, my issue is that i am in a NONE air conditioned home
office and, living in Texas where temps can reach 80c-85c in here i have to
be mindful of my OC. So far i have been able to get 3.8Ghz, 4.0Ghz and even
4.2Ghz stable EASILY. But temps under load can get into the 80c-95c before
i stop priming. And this is with ambient temps of 69c 'it's cold here now thank god'.
As a side note to my setup. I am currently using an old Corsair Nautilus 500
water block that i was able to get on here by modifying a koolance bracket
'hacksaw and a metal file'.
With all that cleared up, here is where i am at. After much testing and retesting,
i have been able to get a stable 3.6Ghz with temps under load staying under 80c
BARELY. This testing was done already knowing what this beast can clock to and
wanting to setup an EVERYDAY use OC'd reasonable temp system.
Intel Core i7 920 - Asus P6T Deluxe Bios 905 - Patriot EP Viper 1600 6Gb ELK
Ambient temps 'today'=69c - Idle temp=35c - Load temps=79c 'after one hour prime run'
AI/OC - manual
CPU Ratio - auto
Speedstep - enable
Turbo - enable
Bclk - 180
PCIE - 100
Dram - 1443 / 8-8-8-24-1T
Uclk - 2887
QPI Link - 8662
CPU volts - 1.20625
CPU PLL - auto
QPI/Dram - 1.21875
Dram volts - 1.64
Loadline - enable
CPU Diff - auto
C1E - enable
CPU TM - enable
HT - enable
Active Procs - all
All other setting were left to default as they did not help any when changed.
I hope this info can help somebody. If anyone has any suggestions or
recommendations that can help with my temps, i would greatly appreciate it.
I'm already thinking to reseat the water block because i am not sure i got a
good seat after looking at the temp diff from core to core under load. I have
resisted doing that because of the difficulty involved because of my crappy
hacked bracket. Trying to keep the water block in place while adjusting the
position of the brackets evenly and tightening is VERY difficult.
well a multi of 21 doesnt seem all that important to me a mulit of 20 should suffice for my testings
I think you should have that off, and get to 4GHz stable without it first, and then enable it later when you want to OC higher.
mine holds up just fine
Fit has done a good job at posting what he has done with the i7. Thank you for that fit.
I would like to see your postings too giorgos. Do you have more at another website?
To me u are a very well respected overclocker also
Look I meant nothing more than just back off the "it's easy!" stuff. For me I found hitting 200 BCLK a non-issue, but for Fit, Dark, and others the idea of 200 BCLK is a headache. And we have really good cooling set-up. I would appreciate any further understanding so that I might reach 4.5ghz stable @ 215 BCLK, but no offense but I even doubt you'd be able to help. You are obviously very knowledgeable. The issue is that you're working with a whole different set of rules to overclock by. You have double the effective QPI, unlocked multipliers, and a different motherboard. I'm curious to see if our bios are the same
Anyway I hope what I've said has not discouraged you too much. Thanks for the good luck, and I hope to see you commenting more with jokes, suggestions, or questions rather than assuming everyone here has seen 200 BCLK stable 24/7.
and why should i do that?
aw come on man. help us out please.
i dont have my settings anywhere posted...just results...
Fitseries3: have you considered changing board to a Gigabyte UD5 X58?
I hear very good things about this board and it's the one giorgos th. is using, i believe.
Should you not know how to adjust this board's BIOS (i very much doubt it), you can check this (something i had already posted in reply #465 of this post).
Just a thought.
I'm wondering how he can get QPI link that low, If this is just AMD's, the lower the HTT (QPI) the better the OC, mine already at 3.423 MHz, and I don't know how to get this thing lower.
you find me one cheap i'll try one.
I dunno of anyone who's selling such boards and they cost quite a bit here: can't help you with this
NVM this, I noticed his base clock is under 190.
