My set is now "run in" and I´m about to do some (hopefully) heavy oc:ing.
Big Bang Bundle
Xpower II X79
32Gb G-Skill 1600Mhz ram
2x256Gb Samsung 830(Raid0)
3Tb WD Hdd
2 massive loops with each a 320 rad an PnP Scythe fans!
Cpu: EK supreme HF
Gpu: Ek Acetal/Nickel
temps in original settings:
idle, 21-28c (a bit strange core 0 and 3 are several c higher, remounted block and paste 2 times with no different result, so It just cant get better:( )
So, there´s room for good oc:ing
Gpu (here I know what to do with all settings)
load, 28.. hell yeah:)
Now the cpu q:s
Haven´t been overclocking since the s478 platform and all I had to do then was cranking up the fsb and select a good ram divider (and maybe some cpu voltage)
so, is there anything special with this X79 platform? or just simple tampering with hmmm.. bclk(fsb) and ram freq. and maybe som voltage tweaking? I´m hoping to get an stable clock around 4,7-5+ (for 2h a day, it´s only a gamingsetup)
And I wonder how my Corsair HX850 will hold up with all the oc?
My first attempt didnt pan out well
upped the bckl to 105 and locked the ram at 1600 (as they are) but it wont even boot bios!
turbo boost 2.0 disabled
enhanced turbo disabled
everything else at auto
but no luck
can someone post a template of all setting to maybe reach at lest 4.5!?
The gpu oc looking nice at origanl voltage running att 33c full load @ 1125/1450 more to come (increased result in newest unigine from 2500>3000p
Thanx in advance!
(currently using OC genie @ 4.0.....)
