    I somehow managed to catch a 0x101 BSOD playing supcom2... increase cpu vcore. After 9 hours of occt linpack, I get a bsod playing a game. yay...

    Just picked up some sandpaper from auto zone. I got 400, 800, and 1000 grit. Gonna sand down my 920.

    I'm sure I'll have some extra, but I'll save it for future projects. Maybe I'll lap the 1090t... I'm planning on doing it to my phenom II 550 as well today while I do the 920, since it's just sitting in a board in my closet. Looks like my primary rig will be my 920 as high as I can get it, 4.0 or 3.8 if 4.0 is too hot. Secondary will be the 1090t... don't know anything about them yet, but I'll try to get 4ghz on that as well. Third rig would be the 550, but I can't use it atm. Need a house, heh

    Oh, alright. I'm probably going to pick some up from Amazon for some headlight restoration in a week or so- if I have some left over I will post back in the event someone wants a small portion for some WCG related CPU lapping. The stuff I got from Autozone last time was expensive- and they didnt have combo packs :(

    Still have a bit of thermal tape if anyone needs some for their crunchers, btw.

    Yeah I spent $15 just now for 3 packs, $5 for the 400, likewise for the 800 and 1000. They did have an assorted pack, but the sandpaper only said 'rough', 'medium', and 'fine', and even the 'fine' didn't feel like it could be much higher than 400 or so. If they were specific on what grit the papers were I would have just walked out with the assorted kit.

    last processor I lapped I actually used 600, 800, 1000, and 1200. Came out with a mirror finish.

    1000 should be more than enough though.

    Also, check with your local NAPA auto parts. They have an auto finish department and I believe they have the combo pack that includes the ones I listed. Also they are a "wet and dry" type of sand paper.

    I usually always wet sand the processors and heat sinks.

    I'm thinking about buying this laptop, witch model is it exactly (the 209937U, the 20993AU...)?
    What's your feeling about the general quality?

    Do it. Those lenovo's ideapads are nice. My wife has the y560. It looks sweet and runs perfect fine. Not my type but I do like it. She loves it. Can't go wrong with a lenovo.

    What about some valve lapping compound and a glass plate to do the CPU? Never tried the stuff on a CPU before but it does wonders for finishing off a valve job on a cylinder head (it's sort of a gritty rubbing compound and it's used for the final seating of a valve in the head).

    :rockout: Hmm, have never tried that Norton. It would probably work great man.

    If you all are gonna start lapping I hope your gonna overclock those chips! :)

    Speaking of overclock, Now that the nights here are dipping below 18c and the high's are not over 27c, I've decided to push my FX-8150 a little more:

    I wish my FX-8150 ran cooler. I even switched to a Cooler Master V8 (from a 212 EVO) and the thing still runs at 60c at 4.25GHz/1.31v. Don't know if its the chip, the paste, the sensors or the 2 GTX 460s heating the thing up, but damn.

    And btw, I found that the "massive vdroop" was either caused by Cool 'n Quiet or Core C6 state. Now I can set the volts in UEFI without LLC and actually get the voltage I select. I also decided to change it on a Friday, and as usual a system always crashes within 30 minutes of me leaving the facility, so the FX is down until Monday.

    that v8 working alright for ya? Surprised after all that, nothing seemed to change. Sucks you got a rig down till Mon. That gets annoying. I know what your going thru. I have a rig that likes to bsod and I have to move my screen back and forth and it likes to do it right after I moved my screen back, just to have to move it again. gets annoying.

    It's actually not mine, it belongs to another guy on my hall. I have a Thinkpad E430. I can ask though if you want :)
    Great OC there! :toast:
    What sort of PPD are you expecting?

    That's crazy. Mine was @ 4.2Ghz during the heat wave and max cpu temps I ever saw was 52-54c

    Well that was with my portable window A/C chuggin away 24/7. Now i can hear the A/C compressor finally taking a break on regular intervals.

    Tellin' ya Justin either you got a dud chip and I got a cherry or it's the cooling. Try the Zalman CNPS MAX. I did a lot of research on coolers before putting this rig together and as far as cooling goes from the hundreds of reviews I've read, it was a toss up between the Noctua D-12 or the CPNS MAX. The MAX was louder but cooler and looks won me over not to mention the mirror finish on the HS base is very impressive with no warp I could see of. Try it. Abit pricey but way worth it. I would buy another.

    No expectations for PPD, just trying to gain the courage to push it to 4.6 Ghz. Then I can finally say I got a full Ghz out of an AMD chip!!!! :rockout:

    Very nice clocks there CA! :toast:

    Did a bit of overclocking on the 1045T tonight... got it set at 3.1Ghz, 2400Mhz NB atm. Will run it a for a day or so to make sure it's stable and may go up a bit more. Temps are ok on the stock AMD Heatpipe cooler (34C cores, 48C on the die) :)


    FYI- FreeDC seems to be working again.

    Lapping is done, I'm now at 72c load at 4GHz, with ever so slightly more voltage than what I was using before when I saw 82c at 4GHz. It may have dropped 2f in here since I started the lap job, so I'm gonna say I'm seeing roughly an 8c benefit from lapping.

    Looks like OCCT Linpack still runs it hard. I saw 83c in a test, previous was 85c, maybe slightly higher. In any case there was a drop... a big drop under normal load, but linpack still runs really hot.

    Not bad. Throw an nice cooler on there and you could probably get 3.4 - 3.5 Ghz

    That's the plan :toast:

    I'm actually pretty surprised by how well the stock AMD heatpipe cooler works. I have a few high end coolers waiting to go on there but I wanted to make sure this 790X board was repaired by ASUS first (Mad and I both had trouble with it)
