I just read this over on the eVGA forum.

"Funny, How Shock the Monkey ,and myself have repeated serveral times during the thread that the Gulftown microcode is not APPROPRIATE for bloomfield operation, Therefore, DO NOT use bios's 44-49 if you not planning to get a hexacore CPU in the near future. Even, Shamino has been here concerning this either on.

# quote from the change log:Added "Turbo Performance" option (may boost performance if enabled) Note: Defualts to off. This tweek is intended for 32nm Gulftown core processors; "enabling it for bloomfield should yield no benefit and may have the 2:8 ratio limitation with bloomfield" Enabling this on a 45nm CPU may cause issues including incorrect memory ratios."

I think I will flash back to an earlier BIOS.

why do you think they would release a bios before an actual product to be in mainstream, i highly doubt bios version 44 should give anyone issues to be honest.

but the folks at evga are kinda twisted to say the least

Yeah that's odd I gotta say. I'm running the latest bios, and haven't had any problems. In fact it helped out more then anything. I'm able to run 4.189Ghz on 1.32 under load. The previous bios I had to have 1.343Vcore for the same OC to be stable.
Maybe I'm missing another setting that's doing it..

I'll start updating the OP. Sorry I've been slacking lately.

Hey, why don't y'all add me too.

Still at stock fortunately/unfortunately. Been busy with school and the kids, haven't had time to stress test yet.

This thing's so fast, even at stock speeds, that I'm debating whether I should even bother OCing it for 24/7 use. Aside from benching with it, I don't see the need.

I know .

When I get some time to stress test I'll definitely do it, but right now I'm diggin on the 52C max coretemp (prime).
Still getting used to this intel.....it's my first since......2000.

What would you say is the max allowable core temp for 24/7 use is? Supposedly on Intels site max for these chips is 67.9C. But is that core temperature or is that socket temperature?

We all go by individual core measurements, and not the "cpu core temp".
Most people I see try not to have the temps any higher then 85c°. I've seen some people say they thought 90c° was fine, but that's running a bit warm for my likes.
These chips can handle higher temps then the previous Intel CPU's though. On the stock cooler on stock setting mine peaked out in the 70's. So I'd say 80-85 is max 'safe zone' temps.

This is interesting... I'm on 44, and have no issues at all but if more info comes out on this, I guess I'd flash to an earlier one as well.

My 52C was the hottest core; using realtemp. I'm still getting used to all the different settings and whatnot.

And those temps you're speaking of is that at the core or the socket?
