Cpu First Stop
Today, after working through some issues, with one remaining being memory, I am beating the crap out of the CPU.. I WANT to get it to 5Ghz and stable. Currently I am running at 4.7Ghz and topped out at 51c temp (I love my cooling solution) running large FFT in prime 95. I'll run it for 2 hours or so then bump up the multiplier and see how far I can go.. So far so good.. Once I get to where I want.. Then the battle with memory ensues.. I have already pushed the 6870s to maximum safe (1000 / 1200), but there is more work to do there > hopefully by the weekend, I will finish tweaking this rig.. I am very impressed with the new EFI Bios. Makes life much much easier. And a bravo out to Intel for the 2500k.. SOOO much better then my older 9770.. So far so good.. more to come..
