congrats, btw.

ASUS P9X79 iS right in your price range...

I went with SABERTOOTH X79, they are available at pretty good prices these days.. i bought mine back in March, roughly 3 bills i think.. its very much
worth it imho, 5 year warranty! thermal solution... perfect.!



kingston hyper-x genesis blues 16GB ram @ 1666Mhz,
SSD boot drive, CORSAIR 500R case, antec kuhler using COUGAR VORTEX pwms on PUSH / PULL

Very nice, certainly beats my 4.6GHz @ 1.39 vcore

actually... i couldnt resist, took it to 37x 125Mhz, 4.625Mhz @ 1.295 Vcore!! ... hehehe...


it was not without its trials though.. i couldnt get strap to work initially, best i could do before was 4.3GHz...
i went back to the drawing board and found this great guide!!

little changes here & there make all the difference.. though i think he mentioned Vcore of 1.44 or something.. i'll never push mine that hard... once i tweaked as per these suggestions i was able to keep
low voltages across the board... so far so good... i need low temps due to studio noise level requirements, therefore... low Volts are ideal...

How stable is it at 4.6GHz though?

12+ hours of P95?

god noh, i never put it through that kind of torture... this is my STUDIO RIG, AVID HD/Native PRO TOOLS hd10!... i'll be putting it through 8 hours a day of constant use, very high quality 24bit 96Khz recordings, mixing in the box with high end plug ins... and HD vid. editing... at those load levels, that will be the real test..


intelburnTest is usually enough to show glitches.... and you're right... seems i need to tweak it abit...

4.625Ghz at 1.3Vcore in bios revealed some throttling at 100% loads.... not all the time but
yeah i saw some 4.525Ghz speeds twice

took it back down to 4.5Ghz, pretty damn solid at that...

confirmed... 4.5Ghz, solid at 1.295Vcore, 100Gflops intelburnTest..

i'm sure this will be plenty for my needs...

so you've got me thinking, and doing research.... not so much on wanting higher OC numbers as I really do put my rig through the test every day....
but!!

it looks like i may have have been a little conservative in my FAN speeds and it may {big maybe} be that i was overheating my VRM MOSFETS more than necessary... adjusted Q fan control on bios and now dropped another 3-5 deg. on Vcore, CPU, & VRM !!... no increase in pc noise really...

i think i need to get rid of my CORSAIR included front & bottom fans as they really are too loud after a full day of mixing audio....

will run as is for a week... get myself 3 more COUGAR VORTEX ORANGE fans and will report back... biggrin.gif

i'm still very pleased with the results so far.!!! and its very encouraging to see this thread growing every week... specially since i was one of the 1st to post up succesful over-clocks.... not very tough on this board after all!! thumb.gif

temps are same as they were for 4.3Ghz... max Vcore ever reaches under full load is 52deg!! lol
ANTEC 920 Kuhler is doing just fine..!
i'm doing some music mixing on PRO TOOLS HD 10 and so far its been an absolute dream of a system!
I cant wait to work on the next set of mixes at this speed...
amazing to see these chips being pushed past the 5.0Ghz mark... rather encouraging... i doubt i'll ever need such speeds though..
will upgrade to Hex core at years end... thumb.gif

i'm on 4.500mhz too, but with 43 multi * 105 blck (with v core idling at 1.1 i think) on load 1.290v (1.288v to 1.296v)

Max temp in hottest days are about 70ºc (max core, CPU is about 10ºc lower), with air cooler noctuad14 (ambient about 30ºc)

my board is a rampage formula.

i see that you have a nice sabertooth.... looks like Asus is doing very solid boards on this platform

Mixing audio isn't that intense on your PC. If you load up a tonne of VSTs across a bunch of channels it can get pretty demanding, but no where near the multi-threaded load prime would put on the machine. I'd hate to see your box crash while you're in the middle of recording a great take.

^This.

Even if you're not going to be doing anything very demanding, you should still try P95 for several hours to see if it's stable enough for everyday use.

Tried to O/C yest, but the results are not that great...
I am at 38x125 alright, but unstable before 1.39V...mad.gif
Temps hover around 78oC for the hottest core, 74oC for the cooler one, under SA SB-E - only run a couple of hours of prime.
Folding was 3 or so degrees less. Left it overnight and just found it doing great.

My 4x 30nm Samsung 4GB are still @ 2000MHz and relaxed timings / 2T till I figure out the CPU.
