    Hey guys, I appreciate all the kind words and thoughts: Thanks! :respect:


    I'm home finally and I'm so happy to be here, except my Internet isn't working and still need 2 weeks of IV antibiotics. Well, I exchanged the modem at Comcast, and it's still not working, so a tech needs to come and see what's the wonk with it. Ah well, just more nonsense

    Now that I'm home, I started a new project that I'll be sharing soon. It won't be running for a little bit, especially with the Internet not working now, but it'll be coming along with some pics to follow :)

    :toast:

    Looking to stabilize 425x8 - 3.4GHz... the chip just buckles at 3.6, even with 1.45v. Can't go much higher than that...

    Thanks bro :)


    Let's say that the project is an addition to my crunchers. I'm going to have to do some rearranging with what I have here to but I'm kind of stuck til the Internet is back up, stupid Comcast. I took a few pics that I'll post, again, when the Internet is back. That also accounts for my lack of crunching for a few days.

    I actually have both pcs turned off for the first time in forever :mad: It's amazing how lost I am without the my connection to the internet. :laugh:

    Well, finally got the project pc up and running, and time to share a few pics. It's outfitted with a few goodies at the moment, but it's still slacking in some areas. A 4790 and MSI H97M G43, a Seasonic 660 Platinum PSU to start out with. It should be up and crunching for the majority of the time, barring any issues ;)

    Does that MSI motherboard come with the magic expanding expansion slots?

    @manofthem, those 4790 non k's arn't a bad crunching choice. Has a high stock clock. If your board allowed undervolting, it might get some amazing ppd/watt.

    Yes good sir, that's the plan. I'm not familiar with the H97 yet, but I'll be checking it out very soon. I'd like to hit the max turbo with as little voltage, and I'd consider a win. As it is now, it hits 83C on stock settings and stock cooler, so that's a no go for me. If I had to, I could delid it, but hopefully I can score an AIO cooler than will threat it better than the cheap crap stock cooler that's on it now. ;)

    Do not delid the 4790. I thought one of the key features was it was soldered instead of having tim.

    Oh I don't even know lol. I would have checked into it first so I would have avoided a costly mistake, but thanks for the heads up regardless ;)

    Very preliminary testing has dropped voltage from 1.144 to 1.12 (83c to 79c, hottest core), and it seems to be ok. Obviously overnight running will tell the tale in full.


    Edit: quick gander looks like the 4790 refresh is not soldered, and only the new Devils Canyon 4790k has a better Tim job. Whatevs, I think the combination of undervolting and a little aio cooler will work nicely. :)

    Edit 2: Will be overnight testing 1.096v (1.08v in bios) which yields 78C so far. I can live with that for now.

    Well guys bad news on the crunching home front.... Today at work my i7 cruncher shutdown all of a sudden and never would come back up. I opened the case and tested the ram and video cards one by one. The only way I could get it to boot is to reset the CMOS but once you reset it and restart the PC it would fail to post until you reset the CMOS again... I finally got it to flash the newest version of the bios but that did not fix it. Also first thing I seen when I opened the case is that the H50 I have had for years has been leaking from one of the RAD ports... Right now its down and only cruncher I have running is the I3. I am going to find my air cooler and install it for now but the motherboard has something wrong with it and I cannot figure out why. I am going to try one last test tomorrow with another PSU to see if its a power issue and if it is not then I will be in NEED of a x58 motherboard to get me back up. I have a laptop SATA hard drive for sale and if you see anyone needing it or find a cheapish X58 board it would be SUPER AWESOME..

    I have an EVGA X58 SLI micro but it's currently not running- I saw some burnt traces on the back of the board between the socket and memory slots and the cpu pins should be checked.

    If you have soldering skills and manage to fix it then you have a pretty decent board (saw them going for $150+ on ebay)- PM if interested

    I may try that, I am decent on the soldering part. Let me do some testing tomorrow, I just went through and found everything to install my air cooler (besides fan clips which I will use a rubber band lol). If the PSU fixes it then I will be in the market for PSU.

    Ok did some more testing and its the PSU. It sucks too case this one was a OCZ Stealth 850W. I now have a backup power supply running on the machine but I will need to replace it soon :(

    It is easier to replace a psu than a board though, especially an X58 one! ;)
