well i was meant to get a noctua nh d14 though for somereason did not get (yes i was lazy and did not build the system myself did not have the time and patience if anything did not work i could see myself throwing it out the window)

The 2600k might be a new architexture but but with Ivy Bridge it will in my eyes the swandy bridge will be replaced. Plus the options for a sb compared to a x58 board in my eyes the x58 board has more options for sound, network, and thats probably because the x58 has been out longer.

The reason I siad that hexacore is future proof is because in my eyes in the future I see more developers, software, and games going to to more a more multiple core cpus, but dont quote me on that.

Anyways the 990x is a great chip. By raising the bclck you do raise the speed of the system, but then you can fine tune it to the faster ram and make everything run in harmony. So the way I llok at the 990x vs 2600k is that you can get performance out of the 2600k but the 990x you can get performance with the ability of fine tuning the fast ram with raising the speed of the system to get a entirely fast sytem overall if that makes any sense. If I have this wrong please let me know as I am still fairly new to oc'ing but this is the way that I see it in my eyes.

But the bottom line in any chip in the right hands is to see how much performance we can get out of it be it a $300 or a $1,000 cpu. B-)

yeah well thats not what we are talking bout here anyone can buy a 2600k and overlock it to the **** house but i want to know what ya get out of a 990x which has a higher clock speed to start with as i said i am pretty new to all the ways and different methods to overclocking. what i really need to know is the relation to the blck and the multipliers to the voltage as in highest blck + multi = voltage though as i said before i need something that runs for a few hours then a diff setting that runs the reset as im not a big gamer (you will be sad to know that i bought this system for burning blu rays that is the sole purpose gameing is just a bonus

the best way is going to be really trial and error. I would say to first find the highest bclck speed with multi at lowest then slowly raising multi back up. While at every step checking system stability with prime95 or Intel Burn Test with the temps at aceptable ranges, then when you get BSOD start to tune with voltages. What someone else has done may or may not work with yours so use other peoples settings as something to base it off of. I have not oc mine so I dont know to much. I have read that it can have a max bclck of 220 or so, and I would say not to go over 1.50v on air (again I could be wrong on that) chack that site out I told you about as they seem to have more people with the 990x. Good luck and have fun.

For a nub overclocking the 990x just stick with changing the multiplier as you won't have to worry about your memory speed and uncore and qpi speeds changing.

So to start with up the multiplier, run stability test e.g. intel burn test or linx or prime95 and monitor temps with realtemp, if it fails increase vcore, if it passes increase the multiplier. There may be other problems that don't get solved with the vcore bumps, when you run into problems just post your settings and ask questions. Once you start getting too hot (i.e. above 80C) you know you're reaching your limit on the cooler. I'd advise replacing the stock cooler. If you want suggestions let us know your budget and whether you want air or easy water or custom water.

For reference on the 980x's I've tried which aren't the best batches I get
4.3 stable at 1.38V on air (thermal limit of cooler)
4.45 stable at 1.4V on water

990x's should be better than that, from what i've seen 4.5GHz at 1.35V should be pretty easy.

I'm in the process of rebuilding mine (all settings lost after power outage during chimp challenge) and am starting over with my overclock. Right now I'm back up to 4324MHz @ 1.28V running Prime, stable so far for a little over an hour. All on water cooling and loaded at 52*C.

There are quite a few guides online if you google "overclock 990x", that's where I started so I'd get familiar with all the settings and what they meant. Last time around I stopped at 4520MHz, hoping to get back there or maybe a little better since I've upgraded my w/c loop.

Before I went with water cooling, I was running a Noctua NH-D14 and was able to get 4.2GHz and keep it around 65-68*C running Prime. Much better than the stock cooler will ever do and noise was minimal.

Right now I am messing with 4GHz 20x200 with 1.23 volts. Is that good?? Trying to next move it up to 4.2 GHz and see what volts I need there.
