Sounds good brotha! Best of luck with it!
I will! BTW i7 920 crunching 100% 24/7 now!
That's the spirit.
Ive got to get it 4Ghz stable. i did about a 15 min OC session on it and only could get it 3.8ghz stable. anything after that would freeze on windows loading screen.
You raising the PCI-E clock? I remember mine at like about 4 GHz I needed to crank it up just a bit along with the ICH voltage (SB).
Cool! I don't know too much about cars, but those sound like nice ones. Maybe you could install a PC in one of your cars.
if anyone is looking to build a i7 cruncher i have my stuff for sale. Just wanted to point it out to you guys.
3.8 GHz is usually the sweet spot for the i7 920 and I don't think you will notice that much of an increase in ppd at 4.0GHz. But it never hurts to try
Up and Crunching again!, AMD 1100t x6 strong and stable,
I havnt seen a I7 920 D0 yet that wont clock to 4ghz. its gotta be the board
Guys, I removed the cape cora that I had installed. Its a shit design when it comes to the inlet and outlet ports. There are no screw threads to secure the port and had the port pushed out due to the pump pressure. Lost so much coolant and a surge suppressor due to short frm the spilt coolant. Still Im not able to get my temps on one i7 under control. So running one at stock.
I dunno...Im back to the exact same setup as I was 6 months before. Temps ranged in mid 60s now I dunno why temps range in mid 70s and moment it crosses 79, I get a BSOD. The only difference tht I now can think of is that these are lapped...but thts supposed to reduce temps not increase. Tried reapplying TIM...but aint workin. Tried switchin off the second rig and runnin only the first. Still temps are in mid 70s. I dont want crunching to get a hit...hence runnin at stock.
U guys have any suggestions?
sounds very strange :S
only thing i can think of is a chiller perhaps
That is weird. I've had i7's running over 85C all summer, so I don't see why you'd get BSOD. This is a long shot, but is it possible the socket area is warped? Either from heat or over-tight mounting?
and you have followed the instructions on how much the screws/springs should be tightened on the wb?
and as KieX says, it could be warping, but its rare afaik
I am in desperate need for a X58 motherboard for my i7 920. I am tired of messing around with my borked Gigabyte UD4P (bent pins and other problems), and would like to get the 920 crunching again. Let me know...
I owned 19 DO's, and I gotta tell you that late batch chips really struggled to get 4.0 with reasonable vcore. Early batches were different. They were brilliant, and easily climbed over 4.0.
That was basically my point earlier about the "sweet spot" for the i7 920. At 3.8GHz the ones I have had (6 of them) required under 1.28 Vcore and the temps stayed cooled with a good cooler. Several would oc well to 4.0GHz with Vcore under 1.3, but the temps were harder to control and the difference I saw in ppd was minimal if any at all.
I have a Rampage 3 Extreme I want to sell. I'll shoot you a PM
I ordered a biostar 1155 from the egg since there was a problem with the fax I sent for the cross ship from Asus. I think I'm going to build 2 2600k's. I'm going to need some help overclocking the biostar m/b though. For Asus i can use the tweak utility.
That means I'll be selling my X2 940 and X6 1090T.
Got a good deal on a ASrock motherboard from a TPU member.
Looks like I had a pretty good day today with 4,238 points. Rigs were off like three hours so taking that into consideration, it was darn good.
You still sick ?
The cough is still here bro, it has wore me down like there is no tomorrow. Doing much better though, thanks for asking dude.
HMM yea i checked the batch number and it looks to be a earlier batch and other have gotten 4Ghz 1.25-1.28V out of it mostly. I really haven't attempted to OC it much since ive been so busy with army reserve and a new car
Out of those 19 he had one that did 4.7 GHz on air in Miami steaming weather, but shhhhh. Don't tell him that
