Did you get a replacement for the one with the damage?

Not yet, but I will if it is really needed.

Two retail chips from the same batch, nice! I hope it was a good batch, lol.:roll:
Seems to be one of the better ones given the limited results out so far, but I'm not really expecting much. These are mine for a special purpose, not for review stuff, so I'll be taking my time pushing them. So far, between ES and retail, I'm again wondering why there is some disappointment. With short time playing with chips, seems like PCB makes for added 50W, never mind that these CPUs are quite specifically binned. I need way more chips yet for my OC guide.

Dave I can't remember 100% but I think I got the same bin? Will have to check when I get home but I'm sure it's the same from what the wife said when I talked to her. What be the chance?

I think your I/O voltage tweaking might be interesting.


Gonna take some time to play with each voltage and see where it goes on a good board. Given many seem to be pushing 1.35V or so, and I seem to consistently get 4.7 @ 1.25V I've been left scratching my head a bit.

Nothing new sadly but I still like how these pics came out of some hardware I pulled out of a DELL XPS that a co-worker gave me:

Not stable though, actually anything over 47 is only screen-shot, kinda seem to have this problem with a few chips, so whatever, I'll play with it and see what happens, or maybe some nice VGAs and a tray of real chips will plop on my doorstep, gonna get older soon. ;)


I just grabbed this screenshot for fun, really, LAN drops out at that, so hunting for 24/7 clocks or whatever is still coming, gotta try out the Samsungs and PSC still, although I think my PSC is a bit poopy now. :p

How it clocks?
X99 early Sept. just in time for winter benching:)
I know, gotta get my ass in gear, since school starts then, and I have 56 hour/week class time this coming semester.

Ouch. I am working full time and also studying for MSc degree in Computer and Processor Technology while I write reviews as a side "hobby" job. Now I actually spent 2 out of 3 weeks of summer holiday from my main job testing Devil's Canyon gear. I technically should have had 5 weeks of summer holiday but hah not in this world. :(

Looks like we have same stuff on the desk too! :toast:





Gotta test ton of stuff before X99 and Haswell-E come knocking my door, keeping me awake at nights. :)

Wtf? The Z97X-SOC Force LN2 doesn't have mounting holes for a cooler? I realize it's supposed to be an extreme clocker board, and therefore under a pot, but pots require mounting hardware, too...:wtf:

Nope, they don't!

Why no mounting holes ? Well this is simple : they are in between the ram slots and the cpu socket, and mainboard PCB traces have to go around theses holes to reach the memory slots. For any increase in turns, path and total length on the PCB you also increase the latency (really low but still) and the interferences. And… more interferences mean lower overclocking…

Having the dimm slots so close to the CPU socket allow the Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2 board to be highly optimized for memory Overclocking.

3930K + Asus Rampage IV Formula. Quite possible best combo I have had the pleasure to overclock to moon and back. My favorite right after EVGA X58 Classified + i7 920.



Selling them away. Oh I am going to cry now. :(
