Watch what you say! Lol, apparently I started a little quarrel over this in another thread. I'm in the process of lapping my IHS now, still debating if I should switch mobos. I do think I'd get a slight performance increase, the maximums v gene uses a superior VRM compared to the extreme4-m. Not to mention there are some other perks about the board. But realistically I don't know how much of a increase I will see and if it is worth the hassle.

Not to spoil your $600 spendings... but you gain very little performance in RAM overclocking...

I assumed you knew that already.

I would just leave them clocked at 2200MHz and try to decrease the timings to get the most out of it.


And btw, if anyone asks... I was talking about the free OS you can get on a college website. ph34r-smiley.gif

There is no way to decipher my text.

Which I am going to eventually monkey around with the timing. I am aware that RAM speed has diminished returns once you get up there. What I didn't know though, was that IMC is basically independent from the chip clock speed.
Learning has occurred..... and it was expensive.
This whole build was a present to myself so I went to the extreme when it came to picking components.

Most colleges, have a partnership with software companies that will provide free software to their students.
Microsoft is one of them.

I was able to download Windows 7 and register it for free, legally.

Btw...


Btw, this scene was not in the script. It was all improvised. Even the middle guy improved his reaction at the end. Epic.

oh yeah....my wife got a watered down copy of office through her school a few years back. Makes sense. I would see if there was anyway for me to benefit from her STILL being in the education system after all these years, but I have already paid for my copy of windows 8 and office...

Hey Kenny, while I got you here, what is your opinion on playing with the BCLK? I have heard so many conflicting stories about BCLK and degradation. Some say all good to 103, others say 105, and the majority say don't touch it unless you go ln2. I just really want to mess around, maybe even underclock it a bit. I am stable as stable gets using +.005 offset and +.004 turbo at 45x100. That is a perfect for my idle VCore, any drop in offset and I get I idle instability, however, I still have load stability. Since I cant go negative turbo, I was thinking of squeezing a few extra MHz out of the load end since I have about .010V overhead. Would bumping to 100.5 or 101.0 be within reason? what about like 105? I mean if it was not meant to be messed with...wouldn't intel lock it down?

Yea im running a -0.010 offset and 0.978v at idle. Whats your idle vcore?

Nice.

So I just got done deliding and lapping and all I can say is I am utterly SPEECHLESS! Prior to the modifications I was running 50x at 1.432v and after about 15min I experienced some thermal throttling. First thing I did when I popped the chip back in was run the exact same stress test with all the previous settings but I ran it only for 15min to compare my prior results. Heres the results:

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01
So Frosty!santa.gif
Basically my temps were cut in half.

I did notice though the CPU dropped down to 3.5mhz for a split second, it did this twice. Not too sure exactly why this happened. Could it be possible that the VRM had some thermal issues? How could I go about figuring this out?
