Some screen shots of the CPU at load and idle, will be putting SuperPi and 3DMark 06 and Vantage scores up in a few then on to the fun. For now I am using the stock cooler, going to see what temps are like if I use MX-2 instead of the TIM on the HS too. VID for the chip can be seein on the RealTemp screen, 1.0875.

Yup, but as it stands, unless you custom make a mount for a different cooler, I think its about all there is to work with for now. Hopefully MX-2 will drop those enough to at least get me 3-3.2GHz stable with out it burning up.

Those temps are crazy high at only 1.048v :eek: What's the benefit of having bleeding edge hardware, if you can't push it?

I wonder if Intel lied about the operating speed of the i7 CPUs. If you look at the screen shot where I am checking temps with prime, the 920 is reading a 21x multi instead of the 20x it should be so the CPU is operating at 2.8GHz instead of 2.66GHz like it is advertised to do.

hmmmm maybe its a mobo over ride? i think the 920 was supposed to have a 21 multi maybe fit can show us a SS and i will when i get my rig

This will be interesting to watch, especially with the apparent thermal issues right now. I'm going to sit back for about 6 months before I jump on board.

Hopefully fitseries will be finished setting up his TEC soon and he can do more than I. When I have access to a digi cam I will put up screen shots of my BIOS.

This goes for any platform. Hell, I'm even using after market cooling on my 8 yr old daughter's rig. :laugh:

21x multiplier is with turbo mode on, stock multi is 20x

it can be 22x multiplier if only 1 core is active.

This is going to be like learning to overclock all over again, just a quick peek I did on my first boot was enough to freak me a little bit.

Yea i haven't checked my VID under load yet, guess i can check once i get home...

yea the bios is confusing as first, you see all the voltages? The only ones you need to push to overclock is ram/vcore/qpi, the rest can be left on auto.

Well at idle it says mine is something under 1.0v, and at full load says 1.0875v. Coretemp won't show the VID, and the Voltage reading in CPU-z are fairly different from what Realtemp reads, and when using the ASUS TurboV overclocking program, it reads the core voltage as 1.225v. So CPU-z and ASUS TurboV have the closest #, so going with something around those for now.

Don't use TurboV, it freezes my overclock everytime i try it. at idle, cpu-z reads the exact same voltage for me also, 1.048. on load, it reads 1.2.

well enough playing around, crank that BLCK up to 200mhz

heres mine

Benches as promised. Not using the Turbo V program, just comparing #s in it.

Look again Paulie, that's 1.32V under load, and the stock cooler isn't much better than the Core2Quad stock coolers. Seems about right to me.

I wonder if Intel lied about the operating speed of the i7 CPUs. If you look at the screen shot where I am checking temps with prime, the 920 is reading a 21x multi instead of the 20x it should be so the CPU is operating at 2.8GHz instead of 2.66GHz like it is advertised to do.
That's the Turbo mode
