You think I'm going to notice a performance difference? wink.gifbiggrin.gif I can't wait for Tuesday / Wednesday: computer build day!!

..you certainly will notice a performance difference to your previous setup smile.gif The point is simply that folks have different reasons to make what is after all their choice, and it may or may not have to do with male body parts biggrin.gif Even a 3970X pales in comparison to a E7-8870 with 10 cores / 20 threads, 30MB of cache, capable of addressing up to 4096 GB of RAM - and a price tag of more than four times that of a 3970X..

But I am noticing a shift away from such monsters in the commercial world we operate in towards 'more but smaller' units in a Virtual Machine...cheaper, much more flexible and much better fail-over capabilities.

As to my two primary personal systems (R-IV-E and M-V-E), I'm finishing the related build-log this week but each is triple-booted as they run two installs of Win 7 and one Windows Server 2008 R / SQL Enterprise instances 'per set of hardware' - the 'work' and 'play' zones are thus really well separated on each machine, in case I go too far on memory tweaking or so. Not sure such separation is required for your applications but it could be useful.

In any case, in a few days your going to get your X79 Rampage and undoubtedly will have a ton of fun with it thumb.gif

OK, now I have to learn about multiple boots: my "play" consists of using the browser, and maybe a video game to play: I haven't played a PC game in years - been doing the Xbox 360 thing for a while - and only during Winter.

If the "work" and "play" use the same hardware, then why separate them? am I missing something?

...what have I done ? smile.gif ...I was just looking at your earlier post where you had mentioned some 3d CAD and such...but multi-booting is definitely not common nor required...it is just a nice way of dealing with very differing applications THAT require different OS.

As I was saying earlier, in one configuration, the R-IV-E / 3970X combo runs several instances of SQL Enterprise, a fully functional Web Server (set to Local Host) and some fairly large databases - copies of what runs on much bigger commercial units. The SQL instances have a fixed claim on 24 GB out of the 32 GB of TridentX 2400 - and run on Windows Server 2008 OS...not ideal for updated Quad-SLI video drivers and fast gaming / benching for the 4x 670ies etc if you know what I mean...

...so I can boot into different environments (ie Win 7 64 Pro) where I keep my games, benches and such...not to mention email and so forth as I do not run browsers and email on the Windows 2008 Server OS for security reasons. And the ROG boards have the really nice feature in the BIOS where you just click on what drive you want to boot from... If all this doesn't make sense (yet), it will soon once I finish that build-log (this week) smile.gif

Yeah, that voltage is a lot higher than I would like to see for 5GHz...

congrats though.

just air water, yeah v-core is high, getting no warnings off monitors though. OSD monitor has 46 c on cpu temp after a 3d mark advanced extreme run, scored lower there, Win 8 might be better, rebooting into that to see now. HOMECINEMA stated 1.6 v-core was the worry line, he knows the 3820 side of things, he has allot of them, of course he as sacrificed a few i think

You don't have to update bios unless there's issues with the old one. I'm still on 0604 from 2011, haven't had issues so never bothered to update it.
I have bricked a mobo before with a bad flash, so generally avoid updating bios unless there is a need to.

your are right Ftw , i guess it gives me somethng to do

BIOS 4102 changed the way the whole mobo works, it just feels different. I cannot get my multiplier past 38 anymore i have to compansate with the BLCK. have to keep checking diffferent combinations, i almost gave up, but at least i know the chip still has it in her now.

Hey guys, I have my new rig on the test bench and I'd like to be added. http://valid.canardpc.com/2821196



Can't wait to get her underwater and do some real OC'ing.
