    I accidentally left the monitor on when being AFK, and saw this appear while the CEP2 graphics were being shown.

    Well the I7-920 just arrived at the PO so hopefully I will get it sometime this morning. I am concerned that this board is dead but will keep everyone updated!

    Finger crossed for ya! :toast:

    I'm working on some issues I'm having with my Swiftech H220 cooler where it doesn't want to start up all of the time. I posted on the Swiftech forum about it along with a couple of pics of the rig. A couple of posts and e-mails later, Bryan @ Swiftech offered to send me out the updated impeller for the unit express mail from California :)

    He only needed the serial # and now I don't even have to break down the entire loop to get it fixed! :toast:

    Well IT WORKS!!!!!!!! :toast::toast::toast::toast::toast:

    I put it all together with 2x2GB Pareema RAM and and crossed my fingers. Once the board powered up 5 seconds went by and it never started so I reset the CMOS and tried again STILL NOTHING! so I got discouraged and was about to post on here with my new woes but I left it powered on and about 15 seconds it posted.... It takes like 15-20 seconds for this board to even post which is odd. So I threw it in the case and I am installing windows as we speak! Hopefully I can get with corsair to send me a X58 mounting kit for my water cooler but for now the trusty evercool transformer 4 will hold down the fort!

    Ok did some overlocking and I am quite surprised! This was just a quick clock at 19x190 @ 1.3V

    LOL haha yea its the stock wall papers

    I just tried 19x200 1.31V and it BSOD about 15 seconds after starting the test so I got to dig around but I will be happy with just 3.8 if I cannot get it stable at 4

    *edit*

    Tried 1.32v and it lasted til the first Gflop and rebooted. The Vdroop on this board is what is killing me cause it was dropping to 1.27V under full load. Going to try 1.33V then reverting

    In case any of You missed it, WCG published the results of their member survey conducted in March 2013

    My favorite line:
    "Our member base is overwhelmingly male (almost 90%) and most have a technical knowledge base."

    As it sounds like: "a bunch of geeks doing their geeky computer stuff" :roll:

    4GHz stable with HT on... congrats! This Q6600 is running me through the ringer... seems I can't even hit 3.4 with it now. Might be the motherboard though, it's decent but not the best of the S775 boards. I've tried and failed to get 3.6 for weeks lol

    Yea HAT I was surprised with this weak alienware motherboard with bent pins but with some small tweaking and lowered ram speeds got it good. THANKS HAT!!!

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    You know hat, I hate to cut my throat but that 1090t you have for sale will make a great crunching cpu. I have one and it averages between 4 to 4.5 k ppd at 3.6 GHZ. :toast:

    I'm having some heavy expenses coming my way so I'll have a 8350 crunching 100% and the other on weekends only to pick up the slack left by the office PCs.

    I'll bring it on for challenges though.

    The Bloomfield i7s can still do very well if temperatures can be kept and check and power usage ignored. 4GHz is nothing to laugh at :)

    Well got into work this morning and it had locked up sometime around 1AM and I believe its heat related cause realtemp logs were around 90deg when it stopped logging :twitch:

    Do you guys think my H50 would do OK on this I7? For the time being I backed the voltage down and running 3.8ghz
