I have Gigabyte GTX 780 WF3 overclocked @ 1150/1600, 3770K @ 4.5GHz, 8GB RAM, 2x SSD, 2x HDD, a ton of fans and my rig full loadedin Crysis 3 pulls 420W max from the wall socket measured with a watt meter.That's 380W from the PSU itself.So you would have ~ 350W of extra power left for your upcoming 2nd GTX 780 and that/s more than enough.BTW I run my sistem on a SeaSonic G550W power suplly.CHEERS..
Yesterday I upgraded my system with another SSD, so I had to remove my GTX 780 from the PCIe slot to connect SATA cable to the port. When I put my GTX 780 back and turned on my system I have noticed that my GPU performance dropped for ~ 10%. After a lot of troubleshooting I realized that my PCIE 3.0 16x slot was only running @ 2x 3.0 in 3D mode. After restart it would randomly get to full 16x speed but also after another restart it would get stuck @ 2x speed. I tried...
Thanx and +rep for your reply. I have taken my chances and updated firmware and all my data is still there (So is OS). Unfortunately Write seq. performance has not been improved, while Read performance did to ~ 470 MB/s. CHEERS.
I have Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB SSD, current firmware is 501ABBF0, it's old so I would like to update firmware to latest 526ABBF0 . It's my sistem drive and my concern is will I lose all data stored on the disk including Windows installation after I perform firmware update. I want to update firmware because performance of my SSD is very low, especially write seq. performance which is ~ 128 MB/s in AS SSD test. Read is ~ 400 MB/s. The drive is 10 months old, Trim is...
Read this, my OC template for P5Q Pro and Q9550, with stability testing methodology.Word of an advice, lower RAM speed to 667MHz before you start to OC, as when your RAM is already @ 1066MHz and you start to rise FSB, your RAM automatically start to OC with it and goes above its rated speed of 1066MHz.But when you set RAM to 667MHz sor FSB of 333MHz, and then start rising your FSB , for example to 400MHz, your RAM will automatically go to 800MHz (FSB : RAM ratio 1:1) and...
Wow , 3rd year since you have departed to a better place, God bless.
I dont have P5QC, sold it and the Q9550 back in Feb 2012.I have also used P95 for memory testing, custom 4096 to 4096K test with 6GB of dedicated RAM for the testing, always passed with flying colours.Custom 4096K test is the best for stressing RAM and memory controller.P95 Custom test w RAM @ 1600MHz 9-9-9-27, 1.65V, 6GB dedicated for the test, over 1h stable and manually terminated after 2h mark.As you can see I had a pretty decent Q9550, stable @ 3.4GHz with stock VID...
Why don't you use DDR2 RAM in that board, I have tried both DDR2 and DDR3, no performance difference, you will not notice it? DDR2 @ 900MHz, 450MHz FSB, 5-5-5-15, it's very stable choice. Memory controler is in North Bridge so your just might be weak. CHEERS..
No I havent touched OverVoltage jumper, and those were my exact settings. Your problem must be in memory compatibility with motherboard, I had Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB 1600MHz modules. Also I was able to run my RAM @ 1600MHz 9-9-9-27 , 1.65V with 400MHz FSB, no problem at all, P95 stable blend and custom 4096 > 4096k test. CHEERS..
Drop CPU multiplier to 6x and test FSB 459MHz , also try out lower FSB like 450MHz. If you find that your system is stable with 6x 450 or 459 MHz then upp multi to 8.5 or 9x and add Vcore to try to stabilize CPU overclock. CHEERS..
