Funny solution but at least it works:laugh: now that you said that did you plug the tubes correctly?

I don't know why but the VRM's temps won't go above 36 when running prime95 for 10 minutes, if temps are correct that means that there's a drop of 56c full load and 29c idle, anyway i will do the test once again but letting Prime95 run for at least 20 minutes.

Well I guess it´s really depend....from where are you going to buy?Also Used mobo or New Chinese?

Are the chinesium ones good enough? If they overclock good enough for just under air the i guess that would be an idea.

Ideally used though, just wondering what the people here had knocking around

Also i have an old HP ML350 g6 that you can have for 20 quid and postage. It has a dual 1366 sockets and everything. It needs a new power distribution backplane (i think) and a new set of fans but the motherboard and PSUs are all fine

Unless he's already got the chip or he's into movie encoding, he'd be better off with an i3 from the last 5 years or a quad-core Xeon tbh.

Well....There is also this:"some Chinese mobo´s are better then other Chinese mobo´s":laugh:.....here a good video about that subject

I personally will always go for some used good mobo´s then Chinese new but it´s seems that some of them works just fine......

I'm on X58 longer than anyone on this forum. You guys are doing it all wrong.

Here are a few tips:

1. Prioritize DDR frequency over timings. Aim for 2000 range and above. Westmere allows 1.5x uncore to DDR ratio... take advantage of that. Uncore 3600 = DDR 2400.
2. Push QPI link to the maximum (7.9 GT/s), it helps with graphics, etc.
3. BCLK 160-165 are best for stability… doesn't require VTT/IOH/ICH voltages boost.
4. QPI link should be higher then uncore.
5. Avoid QPI/VTT voltage above 1.3v. Degrades the entire chip faster, damages the IMC, causing silent data corruption.
6. Avoid temperature above 75c.
7. Uncore RTL values change on reboot. Take that in mind... sometimes you think your stable when your not. When you find uncore stable spot, reduce it by 20-30 MHz.

You can take my advice, or ignore it, but don't be suprised if one day in the future, all of the sudden, you'll get "Disk needs to be checked for consistency" message. I damaged several Xeon and i7 9xx chips in the past with VTT... silent data corruption is the worst thing ever... hard to diagnose.

And BTW, C-states aren't stable with BCLK 163 and above.

Had better results with much different parameters

I am not saying that you are wrong, i really appreciate your advice, but as we know some Machines needs more VTT voltages than others, my X58 Machine with 1.30V VTT it crash/bsod or freeze, maybe it boots and it works for a few minutes or it doesn't post/boot at all forcing me to do a Cmos reset.

Uncore frequency, RTL values and high BCLK all require VTT voltage boost.

I've had a Xeon X5680's IMC that got degraded by 2% in less than a year EVEN with VTT 1.3v.

Uncore frequency, RTL values and high BCLK all require VTT voltage boost.
Right.

I've had a Xeon X5680's IMC that got degraded by 2% in less than a year EVEN with VTT 1.3v.
Was it overclocked?

2% degraded in less than one year and as you said VTT1.30V for sure that wasnt the VTT voltage but something else.

Edit: Sometimes it depends on the chip.

Yes, to the 4+ GHz range.

After a year, application errors appeared on the system, Kernel WHEA errors in the event log. At first, I thought its vcore, but after crashing Prime95 512K, I had to reduce the uncore from 3465 to 3400 to remain stable at 1.3v.

I've had other chips that degraded quickly using high VTT. A very few even that were damaged, causing silent data corruption on the HDD every few weeks.

I'm just saying... VTT kills...
