the 3x sli?
Yeah, why do you ask?
GL with that Pops!
my foirst i7 was a water cooled 3x sli with a 920, pay attention to VTT and watch VRM heat.
I'll keep that in mind, thank you!
Good luck man, keep us posted.
just letting everyone know i wont be able to crunch for the next week due to no internet
You can set download buffer for 7 days. Once you get connected, just upload results.
Daimus makes a very good suggestion here
In general, I'd suggest that you keep a buffer of at least 2-3 days. That way, if something happens with your internet connection of the WCG website, you can keep crunching while it's solved
well just poured my first cup of coffee and im about to BSEL mod the E2140 I have pushing my WCG settings. I make about 879 24hour avg and it runs at 1.6ghz (dual core)
with 800mhz FSB BSEL to 1066 should get me
2.1ghz and if i can get the board to support it ill try pushing 1333 fsb which will get me
ill BSEL volt mod if needed.
silly gateway mobo
Keep us posted on the results man.
What board is this? If it's a P35 or newer, I could send you a faster chip for it. I have a Pentium DC E5x00 at home and I think even a C2D E8300
Well turns out its a 2180 so multi of 10
So 10*266 (1066 fsb) would net me a clock of 2660mhz
10*333 (1333 fsb) would bring me too 3330mhz.
As for the board I'll probably bios mod it later by quick glance it's an OEM ecs board
Bare with me I'm on my phone and using the PC in question to upload (my PW is like 14 hashed characters I don't know it)
At stock volts.
But is it stable like this? If so, a 33% OC on stock voltage is pretty sweet!
Running fine so far WCG auto starts reports have this CPU at 3ghz no problem if it isn't ill BSEL vmod
I'm pumped but what if....,what I go.....higher?
I see 4ghz in your future
I'd suggest that you give it at least an hour of two of Linpack to verify that it's stable so it doesn't throw errors during WCG. Your choice though
No boot strap at 1333 board won't do it
Well presumably you can still go back to 266MHz, right? That's still a nice improvement
Just to recap
E2180 dual core default clock 2Ghz
Boot strap to 1066FSB
brings me to a total overclock of 2.6ghz on stock voltage
ill see your picture and raise you a validation
Load 46/48c (real temp)
For the love of WCG
you can call me bootstrap Solaris17
just figured id update been running non stop no interupption for sevel hours now at 100% usage and shes stable as can be!
My i7-870 *finally* appears to be stable at 3.8GHz (173*22, 1.325v vcore /w LLC and 1.3v VTT). I'm also messing with my FX-8150 rig but 4.4GHz doesn't look feasible as it requires 1.35v and it's basically like lighting my chip on fire with 65c core temps and 82c CPUTIN. Right now I have it at 4.2GHz 1.3v and it's at 53c cores/72c CPUTIN and *seems* to be stable. For a while I had it running at 4GHz 1.25v which seems quite decent, but I wanted more than a 400MHz OC out of this $200 chip.
I also unfortunately have stopped crunching on my good laptop (Toshiba A665D-S6091 with PII X4 @ 2.1GHz) as I'm tired of using a 7 year old laptop for school that I can barely do anything on when I have to wait nearly 6 hours between classes on Mondays. Don't really want to keep it out of my backpack at every possible moment either to crunch as the time it takes to set it up everywhere adds up and it's hard on the power connector and stuff. With my other rigs running nominally and not going down or crashing, it shouldn't be too much of an issue losing 1000-1500 PPD.
