the E4 is very nice. I think I'd go for 2 pcie3x16 slots at this point. MC is about 1h away... have to stop in this week.

The mobo deal was only with the i3 and i5, but I just talked to the manager and he gave it to me with the i7. Then the cashier messed up so I got my E4 for 90 and my i7 for 190 biggrin.gif

I would get an extreme6 over an extreme4 10 out of 10 times. The VRM quality is night and day (DPAK vs. POWERPAK) with all the rest exactly the same. Its a no brainer if you are overclocking to go with the extreme6 for $20 more.

Yep microcenter has the best deal on CPU's and their CPU/motherboard combo deals are great since its usually $50 off what ever motherboard you choose.

stable as a rock at 4.6 but today i ran prime again to check on temps since my house felt super warm


broke 100 degrees !!! ***


took the OC back to 4.3 where the offset is 5+ and the turbo is like 17 (alot lower) . My cougar fans get here on Tuesday so i went ahead and opened the case to use the artic silver and to my surprise two of the H80i screw's where a bit loose and the thermal paste that came with it was almost completely dissipated! i think one of the cores broke 105! i decided to check cause when running prime and watching a video the comp felt like it was lagging a bit and to my surprise the temps got that high. I think it was lowering the speed to keep it from breaking!

i think i put a bit too much thermal paste .....could that cause a future problem???

i put the screws back tight and made sure before i put the artic everything was clean from the old thermal crap it had!


im doing 4.3 until i feel its back on cool temps and the cougars get here....4.6 was SUPER stable played for the past two days hours of battlefield 3 and did random 2-3 hour prime runs just to make sure. Temps where not cool thou!


why do i need 5+ and 17 for 4.3 and for 4.6 i need +10 and over 100 turbo?


i disabled the intel hd 4000! will that help with temps or need of voltage?

I have an interesting discovery...

I raised my multi to 4.7 and the turbo vcore to 0.039v. I booted and Prime95 kept failing and then other services/applications failed and I got a BSOD. I checked the list on this guide and it means increase vcore. Right now, I'm back to 4.5 at the aforementioned settings;

Current

Multi - 45
Turbo vCore - 0.031v

Attempted

Multi - 47

Temperatures were 50-70c still and vCore on CPU-Z fluctuated around 1.24v.

Any ideas?

took the OC back to 4.3 where the offset is 5+ and the turbo is like 17 (alot lower) . My cougar fans get here on Tuesday so i went ahead and opened the case to use the artic silver and to my surprise two of the H80i screw's where a bit loose and the thermal paste that came with it was almost completely dissipated! i think one of the cores broke 105! i decided to check cause when running prime and watching a video the comp felt like it was lagging a bit and to my surprise the temps got that high. I think it was lowering the speed to keep it from breaking!

i think i put a bit too much thermal paste .....could that cause a future problem???

i put the screws back tight and made sure before i put the artic everything was clean from the old thermal crap it had!


im doing 4.3 until i feel its back on cool temps and the cougars get here....4.6 was SUPER stable played for the past two days hours of battlefield 3 and did random 2-3 hour prime runs just to make sure. Temps where not cool thou!


why do i need 5+ and 17 for 4.3 and for 4.6 i need +10 and over 100 turbo?


i disabled the intel hd 4000! will that help with temps or need of voltage?

too much paste and/or mount "quality" can really raise temps.. For AS5 you really need only a grain of rice. spread it a little with a credit card and that's all. we tend to think more is better, but with TIM it's just not true. I'd pull it, claen and remount with very little TIM.

Also - AS5 REQUIRES 200h of curing (cycles back to RT and then reheat). It's not a first chioce in paste.

your H80 should be able to control 46 if your volts are not over the top and not overvolting the cpu (which = heat)

43 to 46 is a 300MHz incxrease in frequency - may need as much as 120mV

Current

Multi - 45
Turbo vCore - 0.031v
CPU vCore - 0.010v

Attempted

Multi - 47
Turbo vCore - 0.039v
CPU vCore - 0.010v

Temperatures were 50-70c still and vCore on CPU-Z fluctuated around 1.24v.

Any ideas?

Thanks.


I assume you mean 45 @ 31mV turbo and 10mV offset? your 47 was then only 4mV (not 40mV) increase - so to me its only suprining it booted! doubtful it's enough for 4700 - but if it is... want to sell the chip? wink.gif

Once you have a good 45. going to 47 will require a significant increase in aditional TURBO volts. In general (and only a generalization) each 100MHz (eg 4.5 to 4.6) will require something in the neighborhood of 40mV. So jumping 200MHz is ~ 80 (as a start/guess). Each chip is different, some need more, others need less.

If 45 is several houirs stable in p95 with those settings (save em to bios slot) and incerase multi to 46, and increase "Additional Turbo Volts" (ATV) to >= 70mV (40mV. 0.040 higher) than they were @45



Incore temp - what is teh VID for 4500MHz when p95 is running?
