Yeah, it can get cold at times. So much so that the air here is pretty dry...not even any condensation on the board when I brought it back inside.


Tomorrow I'll let it chill all day long, which will hopefully give me a -30c starting point. the system wouldn't even boot into windows @ 4.7 GHz before, so a 500 MHz jump overall stable, for an hour of waiting, is good for me!

Wednesday I'll try the 1100T. It's so cold that thermal paste freezes, so swapping the CPUs isn't something that can be done easily.

It's -30c outside, so I grabbed the parts, installed windows, and clocked on the stock cooler.

Then i took it outside.


:roll:


It's chilling in BIOS ATM. Still using the stock cooler, will see what the temps drop gets me.

EDIT:


Results:

Next time will have to let the board and cpu chill for longer. I only waited an hour or so tops after the initial cold boot to make sure everything was still working.

Still, not bad for the stock cooler. ;)

i´ve seen a couple of CHV and all are socket Bios Chips


the only problem what i had is that all has been with Bios rev. 0404 , and FX chips are running only since 0813

http://img.techpowerup.org/111130/bios fail.jpg
Great thanks, it was smaller and a different socket to what I expected. :)

Curiously email support when I was planning to get an FX were useless and told me to call the phone line regarding my concern with having too old a BIOS.

So if there is an issue with a bad batch of chips, we should all presumably get replacements, if it's just "confusion" on the support line and only applies if you don't have another CPU to update the flash we should be OK?

(I'm running a 960T (which as of BIOS 1003 will not unlock) so used it to update).

hmmm,

here are my results,

2x 120GB Corsair Force GT Raid 0

always clean reboot and after all stuff was loaded
i started each test after the other

Bios 1003:



Bios 1102 (asus stock):



Bios 1102 (modded version):




updating to the modded 1102 Bios with ROM to 3.3.1540.14 doesn´t really seems to be a performance boost to me...... :mad:

i think you might stick better with the stock 1002 or 1102 from asus

Last week I had my balcony door open and placed my tech station on the floor right in front of the door and got my i7 970 up to 4.8GHz on air. GPU's ran really cool as well (stock coolers). I am going to try again when I feel like freezing my ass off while benching.

Left everything on auto, 21xMulti power stuff off LLC on extreme temps are surprisingly good.

I know :D That was done at about -40'c, I tested all the way down to -196'c (yes, coldbug FREE :D) which scored me a corrupt validation at 3,948 MHz. I was pretty miffed about that as I haven't had a chance to try again since (July 2008).

Holy Bulldozer.... After a Corsair RMA request for my defective H100, I finally got tbe new one today. That's right, a nice bloody 60 DAYS later :eek: Remind me never to send anything in within the Christmas Holiday Season :slap:

After my night shift I will install the new H100. Dying to play Skyrim and L4D2 once again :D

UPDATE:
Installed the H100 and added 4 120mm fans for the Push/Pull effect. Running cool at 18C w/ No Load and 57C full 8-core load. This is with all 4 fans running on low via the H100's onboard fan speed controller.

Both Skyrim and L4D2 is running great :toast:

Wow now i have two reasons never to buy an h100 that's a horrible turnaround time and it hits 57* :eek:
I never got passed 52* on 1.6v at 4.8ghz i know you have 4 more cores to cool but that seems quite lack luster unless im confused.

@cadaveca, mandatory pic of your tongue on the pci bracket is now required
