    When you o/c the locked chips you have to up the bus clock which moves the HT, NB, and ram speed around. It's a balancing act but it's really not too bad... it's just not as easy as oc'ing a BE chip.;)

    What I found the key to those is, just drop the RAM/HT/NB down a tad, then work your way up on the CPU. Then once you found a stable clock, start upping the RAM and NB. the HT I leave as close to default as possible, never saw any noticeable gains from it.


    ..and this coming from someone who got a Phenom 9850 stable at 3.5 GHz and benched it at 3.6 GHz @ 1.424v on a Thermaltake Drivebay water cooler units. Which we all know sucked :roll:

    Yeah, it's not really that hard, even on x58 which seems to be the most complex platform I've messed with yet... provided your memory isn't bad :laugh:

    200 bclk isn't hard to reach, I got there without any increase in any voltage, other than cpu vcore. Just gotta watch what everything else is running at... watch your ram speed mostly, that's about it.

    There's a possibility of me getting greedy- 650D w/ i7 3930k and BF Prodigy with 2600k. All my leads on the 3930k seem to die and the amount of them in the market are on decline, but its still worth a shot to keep looking. If not I would stick to the 2X00k chips for simplicity and ease of use.

    There is a good possibility the 500R is gone tomorrow :eek:

    That would be amazing! :toast::toast:

    That's a fast sale--when will you build the BF rig?

    My new i7 should be here tomorrow or Tuesday, and then I'll get it up and crunching :toast:

    I plan to order the Prodigy once they come back instock @ Newegg along with an Asrock mITX Z77 (still have a thing for gold :eek:). Thinking of picking up Corsair Dominator Platinum RAM, but that stuff is ridiculously overpriced.

    I know I've said this before, but the 1090T's are sweet chips man. I'm sure you'll like it. :D

    I was wondering why I only gotten 1800 yesterday. All of my cruncher stopped even though it showed them active on bionic manager. The give away was the timer was not counting down on the projects but after a restart it is all back to normal.

    Norton decided he would like to split the title with ION as they both still take parts in updating the threads. They both now have a custom title. Thank you.

    Thanks for bringing it up in all honesty I had forgotten ION had a custom title. I know it shows under his name every post, but I just didn't look at that and if I saw it it didn't hit me. The recent troubles I've gone through recently also don't help in thinking straight either. But it's figured out, not worries. To Norton and ION who update our threads on a daily basis and show their amazing dedication to the team and the forum! :toast: :toast:

    Does it need logging or max read features? I use xsensors in ubuntu, but it only shows current temp, and a not how many, if any, sensors it can see for you. (Or are you using another linux?)

    Huh? The 960t and 970be are unlocked, the rest of my crunchers except for the 555 (which we are going to leave him alone because he is unlocked to x4) are multiplier locked. :toast:



    I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and I believe that is one I have tried. I ran it though terminal. It doesn't read real time though just current temp.

    The one i used didn't work like that but I will try that one. The one I ran you had to run it through the terminal. :toast:

    What packages did you install? Also did you use the software center or did you install through terminal using sudo?

    sudo apt-get install xsensors

    Can find it through software centre too. (And I just tried to tab-complete in the message box xD)


    I prefer to use terminal, but use software centre for a gui search.

    Edit: And that nice 80°c was just from running a apt-get upgrade. ;(

    I can't upload right now either. They are having some issues right now. I am sitting on about 40 results as we speak.
