The fan speed will be tied to the cpu temperature. Increasing the cpu temperature will cause the fans to speed up. You're much better off investing in a fan controller for sound management rather than relying on foam. I bought a $100 worth of foam to sound treat my case and the difference was only slightly more than negligible. My $40 scythe fan controller from 5 years ago is still going strong to this day and it's easily one of my best purchases.
Thanks, I figured it's a nice alternative for those looking to buy a x5660 but doesn't want to try their luck playing the silicon lottery.
Up for sale is a x5650. I bought a few of these a while back and ended up with two of the same batch that have the same overclockability. This chip is a fairly capable overclocker but as with all overclocking your results will vary depending on your motherboard and hardware setup. So far as stability goes I've passed 20 runs of IBT and 24 hours of Prime95 at 4.6ghz with 1600 ram. Further tweaking has allowed me to bump the ram to 2100mhz showing the memory controller is...
Thanks for the update! I was just little frustrated since the whole process felt like I was walking in the dark. A ticket system would be great if you guys have plans on updating the system in the near future As for the PSU it was causing all sorts of odd system behaviors such as refusing to start up, shutting down in the bios, boot loop, all while working 100% stress test stable the day before. The symptoms would appear randomly and it drove me mad for weeks until I...
1.45v vcore, 1.35 vtt, 1.4 qpi, 1.37 pll, 1.1 ioh, 1.2v ich. Also 1.63v for the ram running at 2100mhz. The vcore is fine as long as you can keep your temps in check. The max I've reached after 24 hours of prime is 81c but they generally hover around 55c when gaming. These chips can run 4ghz at a relatively low vcore around 1.25~1.3 but past a certain point, say 4.2 or 4.3 you'll need to go into the 1.4 areas.
From what I've found the uncore multiplier doesn't matter as long as you stay around 3800 for stability. Anything higher will depend on your motherboard. IOH is the NB voltage and might increase your stability if you're running multiple gpus. At 4.6ghz I left my IOH at stock 1.1v. ICH controls your peripherals and sata controllers. Increasing it might help if you're running a high oc or high blck. On my L5639 4GHz I had it on stock but for my 4.6ghz 5650 I needed 1.2v for...
We'll it's been 13 days since Seasonic received my unit. I emailed Seasonic 6 days ago and still haven't gotten a response. The Seasonic rep noted my complaint here and asked for my for my RMA number but I haven't gotten any information back yet. I don't know if I'm being impatient but the limited amount of rmas I've done in the past with other manufacturers had all been quick and easy with constant status updates. All I know this time around is that they've received my...
Sorry, I don't have any links. But if your board posts with bloomfield and shows an error code with westmere there's obviously something wrong with it. On my pre-modded E758 it would show FF and just boot loop. If you're 100% sure it doesn't require modding then maybe check for bent pins.
Just as a heads up if you ever want to use the hexacores on that E758 - it won't work either and will require modding because it's an older E758 board with the green ram slots instead of the revised gray one. Check the board revision. Only 1.2 or later works, 1.0~1.1 won't work.It's a really solid board and I've taken my x5650 to 4.6ghz with it.
You'll need to do a solder mod and short or move some resistors for it to work. There's several threads about this if you search google. You can also send it to EVGA and they'll do it for free.
