I take it you never owned one?
That's where you'd be wrong. I've owned about 25 Taurus SHOs since obtaining my driver's license in 2004.

Edit: I used to fix them up and sell them for a profit out of my garage. Discounts for the family, of course.

I am very well briefed on this particular automobile. I've basically gone through every system on the car multiple times.

I used to drag race in Canada and I've even gone to the SHO convention a couple of times (we meet once a year as owners.)

But anyway lets stay on track here... thanks

You beat me by 24. But I generally don't make the same mistake twice. There is a saying about that. In any case, apparently you may have gotten 25 of the only operable ones. Maybe you have a knack of getting the "good ones". Maybe you'll luck out with your cooler in the same way.

I'm calling BS... lol @ that bluff of yours. You are like a chicken that puffs up his feathers to appear larger than he really is.

Is that really what you want to be seen as? Think long and hard before you post again in ignorance.

Technically, you are right. I didn't own it but I was the primary operator. Parents owned it. I made other terrible decisions like a Dodge Daytona with a digital dash.

That's unfortunate. My decisions are just bad, but yours? TERRIBLE!

So as an owner you would know what happens at 4,000 rpm, right?

And of course, you would know what the major flaw is with the 3.4L SHO engine used after 1996, right?

The swaged camshafts right? Would come free of the sprockets so people weld them or am I thinking of different year.

Logitech sound system and new monitor in place
on your way!

I assume you are going to place the speakers more according to their function... the surrounds in back instead of to the left. You can then spread left and right, centering the center channel. :)


Edit: New SHO is intriguing (the old ones, lol, yikes on some).. 400 horse or so? I'll wait for the Acura TL Type-S though. A bit smaller, more nimble.. not a Ford. :p

New SHO too heavy for my liking. And I don't like the EcoBoost engine.

As for the speaker system, it's set up correctly you are just not grasping that for some unknown reason.

Yup you got it. And yes they would weld the cams. Sucks to be an interference engine if your cam timing is off.

@moproblems99

What's the weak point of the 3.2L SHO engine?

You better get busy with those search engines.

10 years ago I had a 95 maxima with a 2003 maxima engine on the 95 maxima VQ30 ecu and harness and timing cover, the previously variable cams on the 03 (VQ35) were rotated several degrees relative to the sprocket using a washer with a dowel pin and then re-bolted, the goal being to roughly match the 95 cam position. When I described this to a friend that had many SHO he told me about the V8 camshaft spinning free.

That it was allowed to be put into a car and driven on the road?
LOL Of course, it's just another POS, so what if it has an exotic Yamaha engine with a dual runner intake manifold that makes 76Hp/L... When I was asking you to double check your work before posting again in ignorance, I was just looking out for you, really. But you've done it again!

The Taurus SHO (Super High Output) was the fastest American-built four-door sedan; in fact, in 1989 it was the fastest four-door in American automotive history. And it cost less than $20,000. Can you say power to weight ratio? And then say cost / performance ratio? …. You haven't a clue, apparently... both with the car and the pc build!

Now lets stay on track - going forward... the PC build... I expect the motherboard and CPU will be here tomorrow so we will jump right in at that point.

As I said, I especially like the CPU cooler. I think it's going to look sick once we get everything in place.

No need to respond like that...

It looked like you have the rears to your left...
No problem.. I could see where you could think that but both cords are long so it's hard to tell from that photo. Lets just stay focused on the build itself not the peripherals.

I should have first overclock results for you guys tomorrow evening.

Just trying to help (one would think audio setup of the PC is all a part of it...). I'll drop it, but details as to where I am coming from... it seems like a 5.1 system with the two surround speakers sitting to the left of the sitting position when they should be behind you for surround effects. Maybe it's an optical illusion those are positioned properly, behind sitting position. :)

Anyway, can't wait to see what the silicon lottery gives you.

lol earthdog, Do you want to come over and do my interior decorating for me as well?

Now lets get down to business.

What should I be aiming for in terms of a core voltage target as we approach 5.0Ghz... I assume this will scale similarly to a 9900k in terms of voltage? Where should my temps be and what is TJmax with this CPU?

Any tips or tricks for this platform? I've never overclocked a z390 system, last intel platform I worked with was Sandy bridge.

In terms of memory OCing, should I start with the XMP profile first, and just focus on getting the CPU dialed to start?

I would leave the DDR4 at the default/safe profile, and proceed with overclocking the CPU cores. That way it leaves out a potential variable that may influence the overclock.

Dismantled and gutted the Phenom II rig. The case is ready to be built back up from here...

Prepping windows 10 installation now...

Arctic Silver 5 or the "premium" thermal paste included with the Frozr XL 120? Guess there's only one way to find out...

The fans on this cooler are adjustable depending on RAM height. If I want to swap them out for something a little quieter, I can always do that too. Aesthetics and performance - don't settle for anything less.

Using xtu for finding out what voltage you need is the fastest way.
Set it to 5ghz and start at 1.35 or 1.37v then go down as far as you can.

Is this trickson's burner account at tpu? :p

Anyway...as cuckold said, start at 5ghz 1.35v and see if it is stable. Work your way down. TJmax is 100c, but as mentioned earlier, keep it at 90c or less during stress testing (can get unstable above that and leaves headroom). That cooler likely wont be able to run some stress tests at that high of voltage (depends on stress test though). As always, overclock one thing at a time. Start with the cpu (flash bios to the latest first) and leave the memory on auto/jedec so it doesnt interfere with anything.

Once you find a stable cpu speed, try to enable xmp and see if those pricey 4k sticks will boot. If not, the first thing I would do is add 0.1V System Agent voltage and see if that helps stabilize it. :)
