post #3061 of 7108
Hello guys i forgot to put images before, and sorry for not good quality, its my pc:
rshsvt.jpg
birs09.jpg

I overclocked cpu to 4,3 ghz first i used everything on auto and it worked nice(but everytime cpu was on 4,3ghz and 1,3v), now i used offset and it has 0,94v in idle(1600mhz) and 1,3v in load.
In linx i had 65/66/67/70 , dont know if these temps are ok. On first i had big problem with mounting scythe mugen 2, tried 4 times, im not sure if i applied thermalpaste good(used zalman thermalpaste).
I'm also thinking on placing in better position fans for better cooling all case.

I also have a few questions, i wonder how to test lucid virtu if it works? And do you know any things i could use lucid virtu, how you found it is usefull?


@aznguyen316 without offset i got same temps(1,3v), and you have water cooling maybe and maybe low temperature in room? Maybe my gpu also generates high temps, i dont know..

Yeah, I got mine used for $360, but I am like you, it should be priced more around the $375 - $400 range. If it was it would probably sell like crazy.


Lucid Virtu - I am not using it, tried it, too many bugs, so I will wait till it matures a little more. You need to enable the onboard GPU, install the drivers for it (Lucid drivers) and then use software that can use the technology. There is some trial Cyberlink software included with the board that you can use. But again, I think most have agreed its a great idea, just not prime time ready.

Not to mention you take a 5-10% performance hit in gaming.

hey utnorris, thank you for the sig link for the Gene Z68 OC guide =)

also my ROG CPU-Z is weird and cut off on the left side, but the normal CPU-Z looks fine, both 1.58

anyway here's my verification sorry didn't take pics of my install =( I do have the box I could pix though hehe

@rysiu - yeah those temps seem a little high in my opinion b/c that cooler looks huge, figure it'd do some pretty good cooling. I'm using a Antec Kuhler water one, and max I get on full load when OC'd to 4.2 with 1.3vcore is 59-60C, I idle at 30-33C not using offset at the moment either. I'm in a smaller case as well.

Is there any reason why the MB does not remember my bios settings, after a total power off? (PSU off, and power cable pulled)
I just moved the case to its final place, and i had to set up everything new in the bios...

Guys, simple question... Shuriken Rev. B on this motherboard or Big Shuriken? I've seen people fit the Big Shuriken but due to the size of a small case and tight fit, would I be best off with the Rev. B. Thanks! smile.gif

Almost sounds like your CMOS battery is dead?confused.gif

Your welcome. One thing I will say is your voltage is too high for 4.2ghz. For 4.2Ghz you should be able to do that at default voltage on the 2500K. If you are using the boards auto-overclock feature it will boost the voltage even if you do not need it. It's not going to hurt the chip, but since you are on air you could reduce the voltages and lower your temp, which in turn will mean the fan does not have to run as fast to cool the liquid meaning it will be quieter. If it isn't loud now and you are happy with it, then no biggie, just some food for thought. Or you could push the chip to 4.5Ghz at that voltage and not get a jump in temps.
