    did more heaven DX11(CFX) and D3Doverrider lowers my scores(-0.5%)
    Still testing for maximum LOD so far every LOD increase has yielded marginally better scores.
    Stuck at 6.5k right now
    CPU is bottle necking(@5.1Ghz) in places where FPS exceeds 350
    Ok after I tried braking 6.59K the cards crashed(290X: 1215/1575 290 1220/1575) if I could reduce their temps by about 10C° I could do it but that means I need WC on them and I don't have enough money for that now.

    always enable event log..
    It's what makes a booting not painfully slow.

    So after my last session with Unigine I've been considering getting an i7 4820K for single core 3D and Super Pi since it has a better IMC and more IPC than my 3960X(which I want to abuse as little as possible) But I'm not sure if it's a good idea so I wanted to ask for your opinions.

    if they are your only issues then hsawell or ivybridge are more cost effective ways of doing ti.

    Found a really cool list of all the different RAM ICs for 1GB sticks and 2GB sticks.

    yea, been a while since that was updated but it is helpful to get good ic from older stuff.

    What's the IMC on your 3960 top out at?

    Haven't tried over 2400mhz yet but I'm running into the IPC problem more than into the RAM speed. a 4820K should have about 7-15%(one is for Cinebench R11.5 the other from SC2) more IPC and so far my R9 290X and R9 290 are capable of flooding(anytime FPS exceeds 350 or so) the 3960X@5.1Ghz when running Unigine. The 3960X is really really unstable above 5.1Ghz and requires 1.725V to do 5.3Ghz. Now 5.25Ghz(42x125) on the other hand works pretty well but the 290 really doesn't like BCLK adjustments. The other thing is that the 3960X is too old for the intel performance tuning plan so I can't risk killing it especially since I won't find a replacement(the 4930K/4960X clock sooo much worse). All I need is a 4820K capable of 4.9-5.1Ghz on WC.

    As far as HW modifications go you're not gonna get anywhere because the controller is undocumented as far as I can tell. So look for some kind of unlocked BIOS.

    i found a modded trixx which allows 1381v on core and god knows what on mem!

    that should allow me to beast the shit into it!

    So I finally hunted down a few PSC based ram kits but I can't figure out which one to buy so here's a list of what I can buy so you can help me.
    G.skill ECO 2x2GB 1333 7-7-7-21 1.35V
    G.skill Ripjaws(blue) 2x2GB 2000 9-10-9-28 1.65V
    G.skill RipjawsX(red) 2x2GB 1600 9-9-9-27 1.5V
    G.skill Ripjaws(blue) 2x2GB 1600 7-8-7-24 1.6V 33% chance of getting Elpida BASE ICs
    These kits are all cheap but i don't want to buy more than 1 right now as I'm strapped for cash.
    There's also a few kits I suspect of being PSCs but can't prove it:
    G.skill RipjawsX(blue) 2x2GB 1600 7-8-7-24 1.5V
    G.skill Pi 6x2GB 1600 7-8-7-24 1.5V
    G.skill RipjawsX(blue) 2x2GB 1600 7-8-7-24 1.6V
