    That's a hell of an OC for a PhII CPU! :eek:

    That's more than twice the speed that my PhII Optys run at :toast:

    I don't know why but I don't seem to get more than 4.5K from my 3770K and it's been running 24/7 this whole week. :confused: ETAs are about 20% lower than with the FX8350 so it should be doing more work :wtf:

    [​IMG]

    I might have to turn on one 8350 again. The 3770k system is pulling 185w from the wall (it has several fans, an H80 and GPU) but the watt/ppd ratio isn't better. The FX8350 cruncher pulls 210w but does 7.5-8Kppd:

    [​IMG]


    EDIT: Looking through Ion's crunchers it seems that my 3770K's results are "normal", just a little less than his 3770K (I assume it's overclocked). What a disapointment. When I saw the ETAs reported by boinc manager I thought I'd get >8K from this :(

    EDIT2: It seems that I would need to overclock the 3770k to ~4.5Ghz to get the same PPD as the 8350: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?281000-Crunching-comparison-2600K-and-3770K

    My 3770k is running a good 1.2k PPD lower than before--running the 560TI448 for FAH drops the PPD much more than expected. Depending on the OS it should do very nicely--Windows should give 6.3k PPD without too much difficulty @ 4.0 (What I have mine at) and Linux should do 8.5k or more.

    Heh. It was a blind OC. Should have some more heardroom at this voltage.

    Hey guys

    I'll catch up on the Stones and Pie posts shortly. Fell asleep early yesterday and was out early this am... came back to a h/w issue on my main rig :shadedshu Turned out to be a loose power cable on the main HDD- easy to fix but hard to find :eek:

    ION, tried to PM you back this morning but your inbox is full.

    What would you think you would need for it shipped and I can tinker around on it and possibly get it to post with my CPU?

    Hey guys I just got a E3-1230 V2
    [​IMG]
    wanted to take some pics but I totally forgot about it :D
    (for $180 ^_^, the guy who sold it to me, said it was only used to test some servers so its practically new)
    Weirdly everything is working fine, aside from the temps - 5 mins of WCG, HWMonitor shows 62C as max temp, I'm not quiet sure what to make up of that, I applied the TIM between the heatpipes as I was adviced here :( maybe I should manually change the fan speed or its too hot for my HSF

    I'll have to check when I go home next and make sure my parents haven't decided to tidy it out of existence :)
    Provided it doesn't suddenly start working again (in which case I'd use it for crunching) I can be very reasonable :toast:
    Awesome!
    Will clean it out in just a moment! :eek:


    Here's Breslau (named after the city of that name), the setup I've built based on t_ski's 3770k setup:
    [​IMG]
    Specs are:
    3770k (either at 3.8GHz or 3.6GHz depending on whether you believe /proc/cpuinfo or CPU-Z)
    BIOSTAR TP67B+ (odd board--won't let me set the CPU multiplier above 39x, and even then, it doesn't run it at 39x)
    Thermaltake Toughpower 700w (IIRC this model is about 70% efficient peak, and likely less at these wattages, so I hope to replace it at some point)
    CM Hyper 212+
    4GB (1x4GB Crucial Ballistix--seized from the 2700k)
    500GB HDD (spare)
    Linux Mint 15 x86_64

    Is there a newer BIOS update? I had it a while.

    According to the BIOSTAR site, no, it's already running the latest version. I assume that you installed the BIOS addition for 22nm CPU support?

    Also, this is a remarkably cool-running CPU--when running at 3.8GHz under Windows/Prime95, it ran it ~60C on the Hyper212+. The other 3770 I have is at almost exactly the same voltage, and even with the Corsair H50 it does ~70-73C at 4.0GHz.

    Yeah, I think I had a little trouble figuring out the right BIOS to get support for the CPU. I just didn't know if they had a newer one since, as the guy I got it from said the BIOS on it didn't support his 2600K that he was using with it - it worked, but some multipliers were not working. That's why I thought BIOS when you mentioned the multi.

    Well, in light of that, I'll try updating some stuff later this week to see whether it fixes anything. Given the temps, if I can get 4.3GHz or so that would be marvelous :toast:


    I'll try and remember to leave you Heat tomorrow :toast:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    temps are supposed to drop into the 30's here tonight. I have good mind to set all my rigs in the backyard and clock the snot out of them. I have been iching to see what the 8350 and the 1090t can do.

    Do I have to re-install WCG if I change the CPU? or maybe do some tweaking, because it looks like all the crunching went to waste -.-

    You shouldn't have to. I do encourage you to suspend BOINC if you're going to do some OC testing; this way if the OC isn't stable it doesn't error out a bunch of WUs right away.

    Ah you are right, the update was just late, so I got a bit worried :toast:
    also I can't OC with my motherboard xD

    Its not that big of a deal. Consistency is key in crunching in regards to your output. :)
