Back on my desktop. Gonna run some tests before beginning to OC.
Let's see some numbers!
Started adding benchmarks
Are you ready for a movie?
Newegg TV: Sandy Bridge Overclocking & UEFI Demo on ASUS P8P67 P67 1155
A well done little guide by Clunk... http://www.clunk.org.uk/forums/overclocking/39184-p67-sandy-bridge-overclocking-guide-beginners.html
subbed, i hope you gona be happy with thet board.
Since I made my last post of the benchmarks at stock, I have been OC'ing the chip. I believe I have reached the max OC I am comfortable with, for now. Details will be posted shortly. Currently, I'm working on minimizing the voltage at which I can run my OC.
OC complete, posted benchmarks. Have a look, tell me what you guys think.
(Sorry for double post. Just wanted to make sure all who're waiting are notified).
Surprised the temps aren't lower.
No one uses SPI 4M...If you want to compare with others use 1M or 32M. (I see you have speedstep enabled...that will impact benchmarks.)
Alright, I'll benchmark those too. I just really wanted to compare stock vs OC, so I didn't think too much before picking up 4M.
Whats interesting is, the Asus guy, when overclocking, says "a moderate voltage of 1.4". Intel really needs to release specs. Some people say 1.4 is as high as you should go, while some believe 1,4 is moderate.
I'd consider 1.4v as the highest 99.9% safe voltage. People have gone to 1.7 or more in stressing, heard of one guy running 1.6v 24/7. I think if it takes you 1.5v to do 5ghz you'd be safe doing that if you just put it on speed step so it's not running maxed like that at all times. Also worth noting is there seems to be errors with voltage reporting in some programs with certain boards. So technically there's some vagary right now about what voltages people are actually running.
Yeah, apparently CPU-Z (the regular ver.) doesn't report correct. The beta version does. I tried running both and get the same reading.
As for having speedstep and 1.5V, it won't do much for me coz its going to be a dedicated folding rig, so t'll be at 100% load 24/7. hence, I'm not crossing 1.4V for now.
Wow sexy, needs more photo's though!
I agree, but not the terrible quality I've been posting.
I miss my DSLR I sold off a month ago coz I wasn't using it anymore, but I just bought a Canon Point&Shoot. Once I get that, I'll post more pics.
Any updates ?
Got the camera, but no cable or card reader...lol. Ordered from Amazon, card reader will be here on Tue
No best buy to grab a 10 dollar reader at ?
Without a car, Amazon is my best bet than the nearest best buy which isn't that close
It's tuesday so i expect to seem some better pics later! Check out this thread once after you get your camera Do you happen to have a tripod? Thats all im needing now for some good pics!
Not anymore . I used to have an awesome 600 dollar DSLR and tripod, but I got rid of them a little while ago. And amazon just emailed saying they cancelled the card reader order because they are out of stock.....sigh
That sucks man! Shoulda ordered off the egg. They get stuff to you super quick anyways don't they?
Yup, doing that now. Should be here soon.
