The mystical "CPU Uncore Frequency", which AFAIK overrides the Memory / Bus raito. I set it to 16x, the mem multi to 2:8 and got memory at 1600 (I think) with a bus of 200. How that math works, I don't have clue!

Edit 200x16 = 3200 | 3200/8 = 400 | 400*2 = 800. At DDR, 800 = 1600 mem speed. Does that sound right?
UnCore frequency defines upper (max.) and lower (min.), DRAM frequencies.
It doesn't do anything else for it (however it does represent the efficiency of IMC and L3 cache, where higher = better).
In 45nm chips, there was a rule that UnCore had to be at least twice the DRAM effective frequency (2:1). Example : For 2GHz effective on memory, you needed at least 4GHz on UnCore.
With 32nm it doesn't apply (since minimum ratio is 3:2), so you only need a minimum of 3GHz on UnCore, to get to 2000MHz on memory.

This still seems to be the case:

@Sasqui NB Frequency isn't connected to DRAM speed by FSB/RAM ratio.
BCLK x UnCore ratio = UnCore Frequency (NB Frequency)
BCLK x DRAM ratio = DRAM Frequency (Real/Effective - depends on board)
Those are two seperate ratios (except the minimum/maximum DRAM values mentioned before).
CPU-z.png

UnCore : 190,5MHz x 19 = 3619,5MHz
DRAM : 190,5MHz x 5 = 952,5MHz (or 1905MHz if you like "x10" more)
In short : What You pick in BIOS, will be set - at least in my case (Rampage II Extreme).

ok here my Bros X58 bored and goodies getting ready to do the mod getting practice whit the iron and tip i think i got the nack for getting the tip to heat and the tiny part to stick on the cadaver bored
i keep pefroming the seurgy on the dead body until i get a good.... before i do it on this wonderful living Manichean

The math is giving me a headache lol

I did a whole bunch of practice on a Dell board before going for it. In the end it was a red hot pair of micro tweezers that worked the best. Here's a pic of the resistor before moving it:

resistor is OFF and its just not reattaching to the board ......
note... i did a OMS test and i got 4.70 OMS

You need solder flux to counter-act the oxidation which occurs from solder being heated up. Home Depot, Lowes and every self respecting electronics shop will have some for sale.
Type in " How to solder " into Youtube and you'll get a ton if examples, many of which will share the finer points. Don't just watch one though. There are varying schools of thought and methodology on the subject. Watch a few of them and go with makes sense to you, and most importantly, works.

that was not my issue it was the Tiny as part en up just fudging it with a solder connection any how IM now on the XEON chip olny its not picking up 6 cores 12 threds

after some tricky buz i go to post and hear she is but no 6/12 iam sorta disappointxeon.solder.jpgxeon.hardware.manager.jpghardware maanger show 12

What's the performance like? Could just be CPU-Z acting funny, wouldn't be the first time that it's been buggy for X58.

check your BIOS, you could have cores turned off but i suspect a misreading...try task manager

ma be i botched it and it work like this now ../......??? i hope not
but computer is working with the chip and it is a bit jumper i can tell but i do not a bit loss on the ram Freq drop from 1600 to 1333
as for idling prfromince i dont see muhc but i load up The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim - Legendary Edition
and shit was nice even kill a dragon and did not not any drop in its moments.. on gtx670 mind

Can you post a pic of the are around resistors R538 and R539?
