Regardless, the claim about 87 TDP is ridiculous. The 950 is a 130W TDP chip, and that's at 3.06GHz. Kick that up to almost 4.2GHz and you're looking at closer to 200W.
Actually it is 1066 Kingston Hyper X 12 GB
And they are 6x2GB Dimms
Here picture of my older rig but with the same RAM:
Also I have screens of 8-7-8-20-1 also but I couldnÂ´t find my USB stick.
And yes I am telling you the truth on the UD7 my 4.1 GHZ I had a very low TDP of approxmiately 90-87 TDP.
I will buy the board shortly anyway ..then I can show you some screens
Or if you really donÂ´t believe me I can get my buddy to bring his UD7 again^^
I have consulted Gigabyte and Intel about this unusal Vcore requirements and TDPÂ´s both say the other one is responsible.
Gigabyte claims that not every Intel chip is identical which is of course true , there can be fluctuations of performance or stability or acceptance of higher clocks because these events are residing in the error relevance.
Intel says it is the doing of Gigabyte and that the UD5Â´s core building and structure is responsible for the full exhaustion of the chips ability and performance.
I am not sure of either and I think it is a little of both.
But I have always been able to run my 950 at very low Vcore and TDPÂ´s
Frankly I managed to cool it at 34C Idle and 45C Load in summer with a simple Noctua UD12 because of the low heat development which was reduced by the low TDP
I am sure there are lotÂ´s of people out there with those results
But I personally think it is a little more Gigabytes fault because I am also able to clock 1066 Memory to 1950 and 2000MHZ + with very low timings 8-8-8-20-1 as you have seen with a Vdimm of 1.50 with absolutely no problems.
And additionally it is 12 GB which normally doesnÂ´t clock well at all.
So I am not sure I may be just lucky^^
And look at the screen I have posted all over ...I am running 4.1 GHZ now and seeing 130W of TDP...200Watt not even closely in sightEdited by Kung Pow - 5/6/11 at 12:53am
