That's still a very good overclock on your 3930K, and 20C decrease in VRM temps is sweat! I believe your very near the 80% mark on your overclocked 3930K, 4.6GHz is really good for those six core monsters! Keep at it and don't give up on 4.8GHz just yet, your so close! I haven't overclocked a CPU since my dual core, wish I could help you out. Keep up the good work. thumb.gif

Awesome OC! I really like all the details you give out. Please ...keep up the great work! thumb.gif

Thanks. My last overclock was a Northwood CPU. So, I'm having to refresh my memory on a few things. I'll keep reading and trying a few other things.

 

But, I had a minor setback.   I bumped the Vcore up one notch to 1.375V and started Prime95. After a few minutes the system just shut down and went black! I thought I heard a small pop, but I' m not sure about that. It took a few re-boots to get it back into windows.

 

So, right now it is back at 4.4GHz. It ran Prime95 for an hour, so I need to chill out for a bit. I started BOINC at 4.4GHz, plus the GPU, so it could do some work while I take a breather...

 

I hate it when a $400+ MB just crashes.... Luckly it seems ok now. But, more testing is needed.

 

Cheers,

After the system crashed when I tried 4.8GHz at 1.375V, I went back to 4.4GHz at 1.370 and ran Prime95 for 12hrs+ and ran BOINC for a day or two. I then bumped it up to 4.6GHz at 1.370V and ran Prime95 for 12 hrs+ and BOINC for several days.

 

I did this while I was waiting for some new fittings to fix the loop between the CPU block and the Koolance blocks for the RIVE MB.

 

The problem I had was that there was a height difference of about 7-8mm between the CPU block and the MB blocks. There is not much distance between these connections and the heigth difference made for a risky sharp bend for the tubing. I am surprized it took me so long to find a solution. I kept looking for a way to simply add a 8mm spacer. I could not find one. But, Bitspower makes spacers that are 15mm, 20mm, etc up 40mm. I finnally realized that I could put a 15mm on the tall port and then whatever size spacer needed on the low port and I could always end up with +/- 2.5mm difference in height. This height difference is small enough for the short distance I have to go to allow for acceptable bends in the tubing.

 

Here is a photo of 15mm spacers on the high ports (the CPU block) and 20mm spacers on the low ports (the MB blocks):

Here is a view from a higher angle:

And an overall shot of the whole MB tray before I put back in its home:

I will try to get a shot of this installed in the STH10 case after the leak testing is complete.

 

My next task is to start the power cable sleeving. I intend to make custom cables to fit exactly inside this case. I'm still thinking about how to route all the power cables. I need to install the second PSU and distribute the total load across both PSU's. I intend to have 4 GPUs in this rig when it's all done.

 

Right now my think is that I will wait until the "Big Kepler" EVGA Classified cards are available. I might be waiting awhile for those...

 

I might have to buy a GTX680 Classified in the mean time. I know the GXT680 is not the best at GPU compute, but I thin kit is slightly better than the GTX580 for GPU compute (the primary use for this rig). I will continue researching the capabilities of the Keplers.

 

Cheers,

yeah 4.8 sounds like a lot at 1.375 to be fully stable. Looking good though - those black fittings are sexy. Making me regret the chrome look.

Until they make matte black QDC's...when you're at the next Koolance shareholder meeting, you should really bring that up tongue.gif

Yeah I was trying to get monsoon free into the QDC business - Gene said he'd look at it, not sure if anything will come of it though.

You talking about GPGPU stuff, right? A finnish site did some testing and the 580 was actually a lot better than the 680 in many tests. I dont know much about that stuff though. I doubt you'll understand anything that's written but the pics and names ought to be fine.

ps. muropaketti means "cereal box" tongue.gif
Edit: in the graphs, "Suurempi tulos parempi" means that bigger is better, and "Pienempi tulos parempi" means that smaller is better.
