Nice nice 4GHz

all i did was set my memory to SPD, and cranked the BLCK up to 200 with voltage at 1.38, everything else booted up fine. I didn't really do any other tweaking
besides that.


I can get it to boot at 4.3GHz, but idle temps are in the 50's and i didnt try a super pi run...apparently we'll be limited to around 220-230 BCLK due to the uncore/qpi
What kind of voltage did it take for 4.3ghz? That's a great oc though, and this is fresh out. After some stepping revisions and revised boards these things seem like they will trounce Core 2 when it comes to oc'ing (try to take a q9450 up to 4.3ghz on air). And people said they wouldn't oc....:shadedshu

It took me 1.43v and i was on stock cooling. I think with better cooling, 3.7-4.0 24/7 might be achievable

seeing as its 45nm id imagine its the same limit as 45nm core2's
I bet it's like AMD chips are....You need to balance out the CPU voltage, and with the memory voltage.

The temps that they cause without balance is bad mojo.

Other wise expect problems with dead CPU and or DDR3.....

could you PM me with some info on the balance for AMD chips?

BTW to keep it on topic. The Core i7 looks to be a beast.

Trying triple chan memory with my Cell Shocks and G.Skills. Works fine so far at these settings. In the screenshot with only dual channel running those are my G.Skills all by themselves.

Why did u turn off Turbo mode? On load, the multiplier should be 21 and it should be 4.2GHz, if you disable all the cores, ur turbo will be at 22 multi

What voltage is needed for that run? Different ones in CPU-Z

I take the other Sweet Blue Cell Shock off your hands, if your interested.......

Anyone play around with the vQPI/DRAM settings on their boards yet. Are there settings to help balance out the use of higher voltage RAM, say like 1.9v+?

Don't see why board makers can't just split the power circuits and have vDimm completely independent.

VDimm does have its own setting, the QPI/DRAM or what ever is something else. And SystemViper, I probably will be selling the set, and maybe my G.Skill HZ's, got a triple chan set coming later this week.

Can someone post some pics of the vQPI/DRAM bios settings on their boards?

Amazblazingly fast. But not CHEAP. I wonder if games etc. will start running too fast so they look like old time jerky frame films???

Sometimes even with older and slower CPU's that are relatively fast screens pop up and are gone to fast to see what they were.

I'm just hoping that there is a way to limit the vdimm's affect on the cpu memory controller, without limiting vcore and clock speed too much.

This is why I asked for photos of BIOS lol


But I have been known to be slow on bring stuff up that people want to see......
