Thank you kindly sir. As soon as you posted the replys started to pour in!
w0ot add me to the list!!!
highest achieved (stable for most benchies)
welle heres mine after its been degraded. my 24/7 clock 3.8ghz @ 1.395v (in bios)
highest clocks at 4.750ghz @ 1.7050v (in bios)
wait a minute! solaris your cpu-z says 1.163 at 4.5ghz? that cannot be! if it is tue I'm going to find you, sneak into your house, and and switch cpu's with you while you are in the shower! Damnit!
lol no my cpu-z never budges past stock voltage 4.5Ghz was booted at 1.4v
btw my mobo has a limit of 1.6v (1.61 when including 100mv vdrop protect..though sneeky did a vdrop mod so its a free .1v) but im sooooo going to beat you i will not be had that easily!!!!
Hahah finally reached my goal of 4GHz (trust me thats the shit, coming from an AMD user ) But OCCT failed in less then a minute but at least i booted into windows, I'll keep working on it
Ps. Realtemp screenshot is at idle
dude good job
Might have to get some better ram though, it's really holding me back, i might go with crucial or mushkin 2X2Gb set
ya im a fan of 2x2GB kits their not bad at all
E7200 basic motherboard
Hi, I'm thinking of getting an E7200, can you please tell me whether
a Gigabyte GA-P31-S3G Motherboard or Gigabyte GA-EG31MF-S2 is good for ocing. I am new to overclocking. At best I want to OC to 3 or 3.5 GHz on stock cooling...
More importantly, I want to know which of these motherboards is generally better and which one is better suited for overclocking?
Thank you very much..
Also are nVdia 610i/630i based budget motherboards good for this level of overclocking?
Also will the same board do well to oc a E2180?
Also is this palit P35A
I finally got a new board and psu ordered to replace the ones that died a few months ago, so I should be posting some benches in here within a week or so .
Oh and I also picked this up from Paulieg
omfg jealous i want one
Hehe, you can get refurbs for $95 from the manufacturer I think. I paid $125 shipped for mine though because he sent me a 120mm to 80/92mm fan adapter, a 120mm antec tricool, and all the original packaging and accessories. Plus I trust his to be in better condition than a refurb.
24/7 clock - stock speeds
highest achieved - 4.4Ghz 1.5 (temps are wrong btw)
welol if im getting compitiion then you boys just wait.
Got my rig set up for some testing right now finally. I've got stuck core temp sensors . CPU temp for me I guess
First OC with it, just getting a feel. Been running 3 instances of prime95 (one for each torturetest preset) for 10~15 minutes now still stable. Idle @20c, load @40c. Also nice that the 780i doesn't hate my ram like the 680i did so now I can actually oc that too (srsly, last board beeped like crazy if I bumped it up a single mhz or anything).
I think I got a lemon compared to all you guys, I need at least 1.45v to get 4.0ghz or higher. 24/7 clock is 3.9ghz @ 1.416v (1.45v in BIOS).
Shadowfold, add me to the list
lol I'm loving the P5Q-E
what voltage are you using for that?
that's about the same as my chip for ~4.0ghz. I wish it took less volts
so do I lol
wow do you guys really need all that to get to 4.0GHz?
I run 4.1GHz with 1.4V, have you tried playing with the VTT/termination voltage?
huh? what would that be called on a 780i? I tried upping all the voltages
