    Anyone got any other ideas about how to get my 920 running a little cooler? I already lapped the processor, seems like I've done everything short of lapping my h70 base or buying a better cooler, and a better cooler than the h70 would cost a lot of money... maybe if I can reduce the CPU PLL voltage a little? Would that lower temps?

    What's default CPU PLL voltage on your rig?


    ***on another note, rigged something up and I have my i7-950 up and running. :toast: Another 8 threads.

    1.8125v, I think. I thought of lowering the PLL voltage, not so sure it would help.

    I think most of the time you are able to run under 1.8v without a problem. I would lower it a notch, see how it goes, and keep going till it's not stable anymore.

    I would like to refer to our Captain.
    Most of us wake up in the morning, rush to the computer to see the top 20. Or do it at bedtime, depending on the time zone.
    Every morning I drink my wife's coffee and look at the top-20 and milestowns. 2 hours later I came to the work and open www.techpowerup.com again to see who's in the top-20.
    It's not a game, he makes this not for fun, it's a hard work. I had an experience, it took from me 40 min.
    I believe that people who took part in it, will support me. I mean mjkMike, ThE_MaD_ShOt, Ion.

    I would like you to talk to W1zzard, to give Norton any title, like Ion has.

    Looks like I'll be at least a 3 star, or on 'good' days when I don't use my 920 machine much, a 4 star cruncher if I can keep my 920 at 4GHz and if I can do the same for my incoming 1090t.

    Thanks for the kind words my friend but I'm just doing my part to help the Team by doing those posts. :) It only takes me about 10 minutes to do both posts and the only thing that gives me trouble is waiting for FreeDC to send the updates out.

    My title is in my badge- WCG Cruncher... that and the friends I've made here are all I need :toast:

    Normally I don't do this but +1
    Don't worry man. I've been fighting with this rig 24.7. I think it's my board but darn thing will not overclock worth a lick (either that or im not giving enough volts). Going to try it again though ..... :toast:

    Norton should have a custom title for his great work, It seems to be kinda hard to do that everyday.

    Ya, some Mobo's are just not good for oveclocking at all. The EVGA board in my Q6600 rig has some options for OCing but they don't do lick either.

    Managed to get my FX-8150 to 4.5Ghz yesterday but then I tried to push the NB from 2240Mhz to 2800Mhz and the IMC did not like it at all. Boinc returned 30 or so WU's with computation errors so we'll just leave the NB @ 2240Mhz for now. We'll see what effect the extra 300Mhz OC on that chip has on the PPD for that rig.

    Beware that it is not overheated. 4,5 is hot.

    EDIT
    I dont't know any slangs. Can you russian? No? Why?

    It's certainly a far more capable cooler than most Intel CPUs come with.....copper and heatpipes go a long way (although they sure are loud @ high fan speeds)
    Personally, I like to take part in the nightly updates--I think it is fun, and it's a way to give back to the team I love so much. Norton's dedication to the team is admirable, and I am entirely willing to back up a request for a custom title if he decides he wants one :toast:
    :rockout::rockout:
    Once you get into the routine, it definitely isn't a particularly time-intensive process. When I would do all three updates, it would typically take ~15 minutes, but just the Daily Numbers I can do in ~5.

    I do think there's one thing you still need: to get that 965BE up and running and claim back your 5th star! :toast:

    +1 your board has an 8 series NB so it may not have be best for monitoring temps. I believe the 9 series NB chipset has the appropriate temp monitoring for FX (older chipsets lack sideband monitoring or something like that???)

    Check temps directly if possible.

    @[Ion] 5th star coming today :D had it for a few hours last night. 965BE to get back some Pie I think :)

    Come again? You are on english speaking forums, with that comes slang as well.

    WCG is apparently still intermittently doing maintenance, none of my rigs can report WUs ATM :ohwell:

    We are equally confused- I don't know what it means either. I need to do a search once in a while for some slang terms.... didn't know what iirc meant until about a month ago :laugh:

    Temps look OK but double check with an IR thermometer or temp probe to make sure they're accurate. The other thing is power usage starts to jump up exponentially with higher overclocks.

    @[Ion] I'm having trouble as well with WCG uploads/reporting :(

    These temperatures are great.
    I have two questions.
    1. Did you have turbocore off?
    2. What cooler are you using?
