I have the i7-920 up and crunching:

I have a very mild OC running right now--I have something going on, but I'll push for 3.5GHz in an hour and more tomorrow. Having the radiator in the window works marvelously.

I'm having activation "issues", so I may have to reinstall, but I'll back up BOINC and get it done quickly if that happens.

Up to 3.6GHz

This has been a marvelously simple OC--up the bus speed to 172, up the voltage a tad, and then drop the memory a bit to keep it in check. So far it seems stable (although I haven't done much testing). Provided everything works fine, I may bump it to 4GHz tomorrow :toast:

4GHz may be a little high. My 920 runs 3.8GHz at 1.175v, but it takes 1.3v to get to 4GHz.

I actually have it at 1.28V right now for 3.6GHz. I have plenty of headroom with temps--it's at about 50C right now, and it was at ~40C last night (I have the radiator stuck in the window). If I can get 3.8GHz, I'd be happy with that too. But I'm gonna try for 4 :toast:

What cooler are you running on yours? And how hot is it?

Ran my D0 at 1.275V for 4Ghz stable. 21x191

Cool! I'm going to shoot for 21x192 @ 1.32V or so--provided it's stable, I'll slowly back down the voltage :toast:

Further OCing has been a failure thus far. 4GHz @ 1.33V BSOD'd upon booting, and 3.8GHz @ the same voltage would lock up right after I started Prime95. I'm back at 3.6 until I have time to mess with it.

Why not pour on some more Vcore. BSOD under load is just asking for more voltage. Make sure the ram is running @ spec'd voltage as well.

Everyone wants a low vcore, but truly there are few chips that are binned well enough to run at low vcore @ 3.8-4.0Ghz for 24/7 usage.

im glad im part of this team, I know the right place to come to ask advice on overclocking my 3570K when i get it at the end of Nov. :D Would the CM Hyper 212 evo be enough to cool a 3570K o/c ed to say 3.7 -4.0ghz tops.

The RAM is actually underclocked. And it didn't even BSOD at load--it BSOD'd while booting Windows. It locked up @ load @ 3.8GHz. I'll look later, but I have a ton of reading for class to do know :shadedshu

Today was kind of eventful for me as far as my rigs. Moved some RAM around in my DDR2 machines (thanks Norton for the Mushkin DDR2-1066 sticks, 2 of the 3 seem to work), upgraded the BIOS on my ASRock 990FX Extreme4/FX-8150 (pain in the ass at first because now my system has bad vdroop again for some reason, but it seems to be running alright now), and before I was contemplating leaving work, I found my P55 rig running at 90c due to the Cooler Master Hyper212+ fan limping along at 600RPM, so I yanked a generic Rosewill fan out of my X3210 rig and slapped it on.

Cooler Master fans are shit, so do yourself a favor and buy yourself a bunch of Cougar VortexHDB or better fans of your choice unless you want your Hyper 212 fans suddenly dying and damaging your goods. I tried oiling this one while it was running outside of the case on my ECS 939 board and all the oil went through the bearing and flew out all over the fan. I should have bought some today when I ordered a Seasonic X750 and some other stuff, as practically all my CM Hyper fans wobble, rattle or end up failing pretty good at the wrong times.

Been there when i accidentally pulled the power plug for my fan controller. Kept wondering why the WCG client was crashing(normally very stable). Took a look at temps and I was @ 95C and the i7 was throttling badly and basically shutting down. Never felt a radiator that hot before:laugh:.

BTW, that's an extremely solid PSU you bought today. I was tempted, but I have 3-750w PSU's sitting in a box already. Enjoy that tank of a Power Supply!

I figured I might as well have another Gold rated PSU in my lineup. It might replace my Corsair TX750 in my FX-8150/2x GTX 460 rig as the PSU is making consistent electrical "chirping" noises and it is 3 years old anyway, so I will probably move that one to a lighter weight system. My other Gold rated PSUs are a LEPA G900 in the EVGA rig I bought from you running a GTX 470 + 465, and my home rig runs a Rosewill CAPSTONE 550w unit that runs extremely cool and easily handles my 2600K and HD 7950. :)

A fully stable system is boring, so I'm OCing the i7-920 some more. I've just OCed it to 3.83GHz, I'm going to run Prime95 for an hour so and then start up WCG. If this works, I'm going to push it up to 4GHz (or at least try) tomorrow :toast:

I actually have it at 1.28V right now for 3.6GHz. I have plenty of headroom with temps--it's at about 50C right now, and it was at ~40C last night (I have the radiator stuck in the window). If I can get 3.8GHz, I'd be happy with that too. But I'm gonna try for 4 :toast:

What cooler are you running on yours? And how hot is it?

With an h70 I see around 80s load when at 4GHz. Right now at 3.8GHz and 1.175v I'm at 60c, but it's rather cold outside and I have the window open.

I'm at 3.83GHz and 1.38V and I'm at 55C on the hottest core and 50C on the coldest. This is with the H2O-620 and ~50F ambient. I'm going to try for 4GHz tomorrow--this passed 45 minutes of Prime95, so it's back to BOINCing :)

My parents have been using an old P4 for ages and it's got to that stage where it's too slow for watching HD streams and such. Decided I'd give them a small present in return for the time they let me fill a room with crunchers a while back:



Any ideas what it can do crunching?

That's a huge upgrade! :toast:

I'd imagine not a ton--that APU has a HD6410, which is a very weak GPU unfortunately :(

This is an excellent set for a small energy efficient media center, but hardly for crunching.

How do you like the Capstone series PSU's? I have a Rosewill Extreme 850 that the 12v rail started going bad on. RMA'd it and they sent me an updated model that is going strong for 1.5yrs.
