just looks like a waist of cash to me but if your happy thats what matters

Considering you bought 2 more dell 27" monitors for eyefinity, that you can only use on older games, I'm not sure his anymore of a waste than yours :P

 

hehe so i like being a hypocrite :P a second monitor is also very handy for video editing though

there functional items which improve the use of the pc

 

 

but at the end of the day i spent the cash on them as i was looking for something fun to do which is the same thing xyzzy frobozz has done here its a personal choice and i see nothing wroth with either choice

i just didnt say it very well with that first short post did i clearly its been taken the wrong way

Thanks!

 

4.75 was where I had it, and was getting occasional BSODs @ 1.35v.

 

Gonna get home tonight and work on it some more.

Let us know where you end up, might need to bump up the voltage a bit to 1.375v or try dropping the multi to 36 for 4.5GHz. You could also turn the base clock down and see if that helps. There is no guarantee your CPU will clock this high with ease, it's pretty random how well it does.

 

Hey!

 

I was wondering whether some smart Atomicans might be able to give me a bit of a hand.

 

I've got the rig stable at 4.6 @ 1.25v. If I crank it up to 1.35 and 4.75 it is pretty stable, but I do get occasional lockups when running stresses (and BSODs). Everyday use it's fine, but a run of 3D Mark will catch it out and usually crash it.

 

This leads me to believe that it probably isn't core voltage that is the main issue.

 

I have the RAM running on the X.M.P. profile which improved stability by a huge margin, I was having trouble at 4.4GHz before switching to X.M.P. The RAM is now running at 2000MHz 9-11-10-27 @ 1.5v. The RAM is actually rated at 2133MHz, but I don't really care about squeezing RAM to the nth degree..... for now!

 

;-)

 

So, any suggestions (besides core voltage) as to what I should be looking at?

maybe pll but thats more of a ram overclock limitation

try fine tune the vcore some more see if you really need .1v more for that extra 150mhz

maybe leave the ram at 1333mhz just till you find the max cpu speed

disableing ht can improve stability a fair bit at higher clock speeds

there may be somthing else i dont know about as i havent looked into overclocking x79 but there is some good guides out there

Very nice build and nice and clean.

 

Great build. Why didnt you go a 3930K though? too much?

Good question!

 

I'm new to X79 overclocking, so I wanted to experiment on this chip, and then probably get an Ivy Bridge-E chip when that comes out.

it still amazes me how people jump on a PC enthusiasts forum and criticize people for spending to much on their own tech. Tech that is very nerd-boner worthy in the first place.

+1

 

 

Also great job bro. Finally some upto date fap material :P
