(correct me if I'm wrong on those prices but that's my understanding)
The samsung is a bargain, I'd feel like a sucker buying the 1866 gts because the performance is worse and you're paying 2x. Yes the GTs look better, but I'm only willing to pay more to look better *if* I'm not giving up performance. At least the 2133 gts you're getting performance at least as good as the samsungs before you start overclocking them.

Yeah Its just hard to pull the trigger on something that looks so bad lol

Unfortunately mines not that good either. Failed Prime after about 15 mins. I've tried with more voltage but my chips throttling at around 84-85 degrees. Probably a good sign that my cooling isn't sufficient. I've got a 1/3hp water chiller sat next to me waiting to get hooked up. Just waiting until next month so I have a bit of cash to get all the necessary extras I need. It's going to take a bit of modding and extra fittings to get it fitted. My aim is to have a water loop and a chilled loop that I can switch between through the use of quick disconnects so its not going in until I have all the necessary parts. It will need a full rebuild as I will have to insulate my board and GPU as well.

Was hoping to get a switch 810 as well but I've got more money going out than I have coming in at the moment.

It seems to me that I either have a great chip or offset mode requires less vcore. During the CC, I folded stable for 6 days with my 3930K at 4.8 @ 1.352V, then the last three days at 4.9 @ 1.387V... bigadv 1.3M points biggrin.gif

FWIW, during that time I had LLC off (set to AUTO). I read that in the guide I linked to and it makes sense to me using offset mode that way..

Thats interesting about the LLC. I've been messing with that as well and found that under load the high setting keeps me around my set voltage. I tried ultra with 1.5v and after about 2 mins prime it just shut my system down. I assume this was some form of over voltage protection kicking in. Going to have a try with auto now.

From all accounts I've read, any throttling is related the the VRMs overheating. I saw one guy on the ROG forum has put heatsinks on the BACK of the VRM plate with a fan !!! biggrin.gif

In any case, point a fan at the VRM heatsink and see if it makes a difference.

Anyone have any idea why turbo boost wouldn't kick in even at stock settings (loaded optimized in BIOS and XMP profile)? Seems a bit odd. Used Prime95 to try and kick in turbo boost, just ran at 1.2GHz until I turned off SpeedStep, but obviously with that off it runs at full bore all the time.

Anyone?

I've heard that too, but I've seen it happen even with the full cover waterblock. Unless it's the VRM's on the back of my board overheating of course. I was thinking of making a copper plate to attach them to the motherboard tray for better cooling.

Yup...

Somebody created this thread and I went hmmmm.....

Then in post #4 of the thread Raja said:

"The FETs on the back of the board are generally the limiting factor."

And I went *** ?!?!?! biggrin.gif

Is there really that much of a difference between 1866 and 2133?
