I'm back to stock speeds on the quad (from 2.93ghz). I was experiencing random hard lockups, an increase in voltage to the CPU, RAM, and NB didn't solve the problems, so I'll be running at stock from now on
i'm also at stock clocks for now.I think my CPU is degrading

Incredible work everyone! Almost 2.6 million!
Did I not read your previous post correctly?
I thought CPUZ showed you at 4Ghz.
If I misread my apologies.
I'm running a 920 D0 stepping too and it is at 2.79Ghz simply using the turbo setting in BIOS.
I plan to OC in a bit once it's burned in but no way I'm shooting for 4Ghz on air for a crunching machine.
I'm hoping for around 3.6Ghz if all goes well and cooling is sufficient.
Yay goal reached. Now we can stop stressing and have a round.
oh yeah, but it happens at defaults too! As far as air, temps are 50-52ºc at that clock which is awesome for a i7
great job everyone, we finally hit the much waited for milestone
CP - have you considered PSU? checked the rails?
now lets see 2.6mil before the base campers leave
thanks for the advise mousie, check out this thread, you'll be better informed of the issues i have currently
Certainly is. I'm not expecting to get that lucky as it's showing 65C under full load in Real Temp at 2.8Ghz.
I have a TRUE 120 I'm getting lapped that I might try and see if it's better than the Xigmatek but I hate noise so I have to accomplish cooling with fans running at sensible speeds.
you should try a Megahalem/Megashadow. Thing is as good as my water setup!
first: why do i see only one crunching tab
second: how it happened, that your 9800gx2 died?
I celebrated to soon my friend.
All 8 tabs are there, you scroll to the left and the other four appear
I was looking at those CP but frankly it doesn't strike me as being much different than the TRUE 120 which I already have. The only issue with Thermalright is they haven't figured out how to machine a flat surface.
I get darn good performance out of my OCZ Vendetta 2's and I actually have one of those on the way that will replace the Xigmatek before I play with OC'ing that beast.
I experimented with a water setup on my Q9450 and was not really impressed as I got about 2C better cooling than my OCZ Vendetta but at the expense of other temps rising due to the removal of the CPU fan from the innards of the PC.
For that little bit of difference I sold it and rest easier as I must admit the idea of cooling an electrical component with water just freaks me out.
Are those big i7 coolers loud?
The TRUE is great, but I was seriously impressed by this cooler. I will say from experience. Try one, thats what I did, I don't think I'll be going water ever again.
Depends what fans you put on it, my 110cfm scythe's are almost completely silent when slowed down by a fan controller.
Well, giving you guys an update on the troubleshooting on the i7 rig.
So far I have ruled out the following.
RAM - 1 1/2 pass of MEMTEST - PASSED
CPU - Passed 100 passes of Intel Burn Test
PSU - All Voltages Tested within specs with multimeter
GPU (GX2) - Ran Furmark for about 7 minutes stable. Quit because of temps (100/103ºc)
Meaning, it must've been the sound card causing the issues. Rig is crunching at defaults as of now. If everything ok by tomorrow, I'll pick up the tech station a bit as it is a mess now and load my 4Ghz daily settings and see how that goes
night everyone, gotta be at work 8am and it's now almost 4am
EDIT: woke up this morning, rig is still crunching fine. Let's see if when I get back from work it's still crunching
Awesome, I hope those issues are completely figured out!
On to 2.6 million today!
Thanks ION. I feel a lot better now lol, but I'll feel even better getting home and findig the still crunching
Congrats on the new milestone

Incredible work everyone! Another day over 2.5 million!
I think it's time for a big round of applause for the Base Campers!
Looks like you will be clearing your 2 mil a day after we leave.......great stuff
