Right. It sounds as though you're suggesting I'm not.
After lapping the 2500k, trying 7 different TIM's, 4 different coolers with my final one polished with 1600grit and confirmed for flatness, I would have to disagree strongly if that's what you're suggesting. Those things are very time consuming and I didn't do it just cause I felt like it, there had to be a goal in mind, and that was to stabilize core temps.

A bad sensor is a bad sensor, although sometimes the solder between the Die and IHS is not even, causing one or more cores to dissipate heat non linearly.

If you had a defective sensor, you could have gotten it replaced by Intel? Maybe that is the best advice especially with the low cost of the tuning plan? I would not ignore a difference of 16c and that chip would be headed back to the retailer or intel.

Agreed...I would definitely be getting in touch with Intel about that.

I have the tuning plan, I rather use it when I actually need to like right before I sell it in a sealed retail box wink.gif

Pussies? lol. If the sensor is bad then there isn't much you can do to fix it.

That being said I never said anything about using the tuning plan. If it's a bad sensor and giving you bad temps they might just replace it.

They would just replace it, it's called defective. But he lapped it trying to fix it instead of really fixing it, rma/return. Pussies... lol.


But that's besides the point. Giving out bad advice by telling ppl to ignore large discrepencies you know...

New noob here, hope to be added.
Recently came from an msi Bigbang xpower II which gave me problems with a minor overclock to 4ghz 3930k.

Recently built a new system with these components:
CPU=3930k
RAM=32gb corsair vengeance 1600MHz 10-10-10-27
Mobo=Rampage IV Formula (bios 2105) (ACHI)
Case=Haf X
Gfx card=gtx 470 (dont laugh, debating between sli gtx 670 or C/fire 7970 Ghz for upgrade)
PSU=Corsair 850 watts (upgrading to 1200 watts later on, probably overkill but...)
Cpu cooler=H100 (pull air out of case)
Storage: Samsung 830 ssd boot drive, Velociraptor 300gb game drive, WD 1Tb storage drive
Optical=(HP dvd+/-, Samsung Bluray +/-)

The plethora of options in the asus bios is daunting. I am just looking to run at 4.5ghz with the lowest stable volts and keep the same ram speeds. I tried using the asus oc profiles normal and gaming profiles but it runs my ram at 1333mhz and tries to put the cpu at 4.7 and 4.9 ghz (too much). I not not a guru at overclocking and would like some assistance. I read the 1st 100 pages and the last 45 pages of this thread but could not find a post the explicitly listed some settings to try. One of the advantages I believe I read of the ROG mobo's was on idle they lowered vcore and cpu speed; how to set that up would be appreciated as well. If I missed them please link me to them. Managed to update the bios following the step from (ugotd8). I am actively reading this forum, the ROG forum on asus's site, and anantech forums trying to gain knowledge on how to get everything stable and fixed.

Also was curious if any other owners are experiencing some of the issues i sometimes encounter: 1) windows sometimes hangs on boot screen when the 4 orbs come together. I tried disabling fastboot and it still does it sometimes any remedies? 2) I have other hdds and when i try to fill all the sata ports available on the board some of my drives are not seen it the bios or in windows. I've tested just plugging just leaving my 830 and plugging 1 component to each sata port to make sure the ports function, which they do. 3) when using a usb 3.0 flashdrive plugged into a usb 3.0 port, it is very slow in windows explorer to find my files. However, when plugged into a usb 2.0 port it's almost instantaneous. I googled that problem and saw that it can be common with some usb 3.0 flashdrives, just wondering if anyone knowledgeable has a fix. If answer is obvious please link or pm me.

I apologize for the longwinded first post. Thank you for your time and for your future help. I hope I can contribute back to the community as I become more knowledgeable. Please let me know if more information is needed.

1) I haven't had that issue except with bad overclocks, typically that's where it would freeze/pause for me.

2) What ports are you using? What hard drives? Possibly a bad sata cable on the other drives (it happens).

3) Which usb drives? Some of them are running off a third party chipset, not nearly as fast.

--The samsung 830 ssd and velocipator are running on the intel6gb sata ports. The WD 1000gb drive is running of the intel 3gb sata port. The bluray drive is running of the asmedia 6gb sata port. The
HP DVD drive is running of one of the intel 3gb sata ports. I will try using other sata cables with those drives
--It's a patriot supersonic 32gb usb 3.0 drive. the drive is fast at copying data over from other drives, however navigating through the various folder in windows explorer is slow. sometimes opening a folder
can take 5 seconds. it functions fine when plugged into a usb 2.0 port. Also, usb 2.0 thumbdrives function fine when plugged into the 3.0 port.

Thank you for taking the time to assist
