Hello Intel....

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
.....Good bye AMD. Anyways I see all the hype about the sandy bridge i7 2600k and I grew fed up with AMD motherboards and processors. Before this after noon eastern time (5-28-11), I owned an X6 1090T and an MSI 890FXA-GD65(Great Board), but i'm tired of the OC Limit it gave me with air, and even at 4Ghz an i7 2600k chip out performs it. Meaning you would need at least a nice 4.3Ghz overclock to compare to a stock i7-2600k. Other reason why I grew tired is because of the video card option(SLI Compability). Yesterday I bought a second EVGA GTX 560 ti FPB to pair with my first GTX 560 Ti FPB. SLI Patch is a no go with the GTX 560 Ti just an FYI. Reason being is because SLI patch has no support yet for the 270.66 drivers, so that means no support for the GTX 560 Ti in SLI. Those drivers are the only drivers that support that card right now. Older drivers wont support the 560 ti, and i'm not going to wait for an SLI patch update until the creators of the patch decide to release on new update; uh-uh. I was devastated to find out i couldn't SLI on my 890FX Chipset(what can i expect?). It wasn't ment to be. So I exchanged my GTX 560 Ti still under store return policy, and I also returned my MSI 890FXA-GD65 also under store return policy. I went ahead and got an i7-2600k and a ASUS Sabertooth P67 MoBo(Great looking board, What are your thoughts on this board?). Now MAIN reason why i'm creating this thread is because I haven't seen many people with this board and I want to be able to get this chip to 4ghz, maybe someone with more experience on this board can help me on how to understand Intel and this board with the OCing options. I would really appreciate an advice from anyone with experience on the i7 2600k chip. I googled it like always before asking a question, But I didn't find much of solid explanation. Help would be appreciated as mentioned before.

EDIT: Also, can anyone share any preset settings in BIOS with Sabertooth P67 that i can use (CPu Voltage/Multi(How to find it)/Temps?). Would greatly appreciate your time.

Way to go... bulldozer drops in 1 week and has SLI and CFX capability.

You couldn't wait 1 week?

Chancing whether BD will be better than SB (at least at similar price points, if BD is) could be iffy, just like waiting for any new hardware because of hype. Remember Fermi?

As far as I know, we don't have any benchmarks for BD that are official/accurate, but I haven't been keeping up, so I may be wrong.

Lol, did I ask in this thread if I should wait for Bulldozer? No. Didn't feel like waiting. My simple answer.

Here is the easy way to get your 2600k to get to 4GHz.

Step 1: change the multiplier to 40
Step 2: boot into windows at stock voltage.

Congrats! You are at 4GHz!

Auto or enabled works fine for me. I've left them on since day one.

Thank you DayoftheGreek, +1 rep. . BTW what does the c1e, c3, c6 reporting do either way? Does it officially report clock settings to the OS? Keep getting mixed feedback on what this really is.

I'm not completely sure. I think it has something to do with throttling the CPU when it isn't under a heavy load, and allowing it to enter a low power state for sleep mode.
