    Hey guys, worked on getting my OC stable and at the lowest vcore i could today. Would you all say this is a golden chip?

    Thanks :D Yeah mine does also, words like that aren't built into the android dictionary so when you add it it seem's to capitalize them.

    try running the linpack x64 test instead of IBT.

    I was just speaking "you" as in general like anybody.

    I thought they were pretty much the same thing but i guess not :confused:

    50 runs of IBT is usually pretty good isn't it?

    It maybe good but for sure not golden. Here is one from a guy in germany that deserves to be called "golden"

    around the same vcore as yours but 4200 MHZ (watercooled)

    i7-920 4500Mhz (watercooled, roomtemp 16C)

    Wow, i definitely need to push this thing further then and see what i can get out of it for clocks. Only thing holding me back would be temps. If i could get a rasa kit or something i could probably push further.

    Yeah that first shot is sweet! Has a strong IMC too (4000MHz uncore).

    Still OP... you have a solid chip.

    What does raising the uncore actually do? :eek:

    golden would be 4ghz stock volts, but good chips are still not easy to come by

    What's stock volts on a 920? I can't find my VID anywhere on this chip.

    I think your setting is the optimum balance between voltage, temp and performance - I bet you won't remark that extra 100 or 200 MHZ in allday-use but the increased vcore will eat more energy and produces more heat.

    I think the 920 I had wasn't able to do 4 GHZ 4C/8T below 1.28V or around that. But it was nice for some playing under singlestage cooling :D

    Jeesh that's just insane!

    Im a folder though so that extra 200mhz from 4.2 would help ;) What do you think i could get to 4.2 at for voltage?

    I am just folding with my GPUs haha :D But yeah you got a point there then. Well I think when you can manage the heat produced with the higher voltage 4.2 should be possible between 1.26 and 1.3V.

    Well i cracked my window again cause it was getting super hot in here like 77F and now folding core #0 is 63 core 1 and 2 are 59c and core 3 is 61c. I've got room to try 4.2 there i think ;)
