    Throttlestop overclocking Desktop PCs

    That's interesting, thanks! I can get to 4.27 GHz and stay stable in Cinebench, but beyond that it gives a BSOD - so similar to what you say. I've not tested/stressed with anything else yet.

    Throttlestop overclocking Desktop PCs

    Question: With my combo of TS + W3680 + Dell mobo there is no option to change voltage in TS (nor does CPU-Z report it). So when OC'ing by upping the multiplier, is the voltage being increased behind-the-scenes so to speak to support the faster speed, or is the voltage staying the same?

    For those that have the uprated heatsink, like that in the pic attached, attaching a fan makes a huge improvement to temperatures. Just sitting a 90mm fan @ 12V on the alu plate in front of the stack dropped my CPU temperature from ~81 degrees to just under 50 degrees whilst playing Far Cry 5

    This was at 4.27 GHz (x32 multi) on my W3680. Pushed any further it would BSOD

    Nice, I've got my eye on an AIO on eBay at the moment, and I don't think it'll mount on the Dell plate's screws

    Yeah that's quite a hefty heatsink you've got there! You had to remove the OEM backplate to mount it yes? How did you keep the CPU retention bracket in place? AFAIK it's attached by screws that go through the mobo into the backplate

    Yeah it does on mine, but it doesn't always respond to speed change commands and it makes the whole pc laggy, it freezes for a split second at regular intervals when it's running

    Throttlestop overclocking Desktop PCs

    A W3680 that I got from eBay arrived today and I've had a first go at OC'ing with TS. Tested up to x30 multiplier on all cores step by step. Got 875 on Cinebench at 4GHz; had to up the TDP limit to 180 as the previous run with the TDP at the normal 130 exhibited what I assumed was thermal...

    I've read the entirety of the thread now and I'm hooked. Might hunt down a W3680 and have a play EDIT - I came across your question about bypassing the BIOS fan check here. My dad is an electronic engineer (works for Intel in fact!) so I might look into this.

    Cheers for that, I came across the tread before but didn't read it all, I was under the impression that you couldn't do anything on a proprietary motherboard unless you had an unlocked CPU

    Came across this thread from a link in the Xeon Owners Club Thread so I will say hello Got a T3500 that came with a W3565, 12GB RAM @1066MHz, and 2x Barracuda 500GB HDDs. Have since replaced the PSU with a Be quiet! Straight Power 11 550W and added a Zotac GTX 1060 AMP! 6GB. It games very...

    Yeah the BIOS on the Dell is totally locked down so you can't do anything in that respect. I realised that the OSD value must be the average of all cores as ((3.46 x2) + (3.07 x4))/6 is 3.2

    I wonder if I can pick your collective brains. I've got a Dell Precision T3500 that came with a W3565 that I've since swapped out for an X5675. They have the same maximum boost of up to 3.46GHz. When gaming (Tomb Raider, the Bioshock/Witcher series everything at max settings - I stuck a GTX...
