New 24/7 OC now the chips had a couple of months to settle in.
That's nearly the same settings for mine 5016@2400@1.48vcore but my multi is at 38 and differences in the amount of dram + timings thumb.gif

I thought I'd share this. My sister asked me to build her an triple screen rig on a budget. I agreed cuz I'm sucker for family even though I know better lol.

Anywyays, I was browsing MC when I found an Asus P9X79 for 160 open box. I call them up to reserve it and it just got marked down to 120! My sister got a smoking deal on a 3820 combo, best price I've ever come across. biggrin.gifthumb.gif

It was the regular MC price of 230, so chip and board = 230+120=350 lolzers. That's AMD bundle territory.

MC is amazing. I picked my chip up there for $199, and then my motherboard for $99. I don't think you can find a deal much better than that.

Hi people, I've had my 3820 for a couple of months now and very happy with it, but like many, i still want to see how far i can take it
but unfortunately I've got no experience OC'ing things, so was wandering If I could get some help

My 3820 is currently running @ 4.2Ghz and stressing testing was 100% perfect, not one problem under Prime95, temps got to 63-64
I hear these are still safe temps so my H100 seems to be doing ok, was wandering how I can take my OC further as I've only used presets thus far.

also will i need to upgrade my cooling before going further as i don't not what is safe when OC'ing, I know Intel say 66 is safe, but surely it can go further then that ?

Thanks in advance for any help, and My system specs are as follows :-

CoolerMaster Cosmos II Case
i7 3820 @ 4.2Ghz ( BCLK - 100) w/ H100 Cooling
ASRock Extreme9 Mobo
32GB G.Skill TridentX 2400mhz RAM (4 x 8GB)
2GB XFX 7850 Black/Ghost Edition
OCZ ZT750 PSU

You can try it first by using BIOS pre-set overclocking options. I think Asrock Extreme9 has 4.6, 4.8, 5.0 options in bios. You can try those. In general, try NOT to go over 1.5Vcore. (In BIOS for 5.0 Ghz Vcore might be set to 1.520, but I wouldn't suggest using that for long periods) Also, watch for VTT and VCCSA and try not to go over 1.2v for those and for PLL around 1.8v should be ok. I would also try not to go over 70C temps under stress. Depending on your Vcore and ambient temps H100 should be ok, however; if you want 5.0Ghz+, I would strongly recommend Custom Water Cooling.

When you try pre-set values, Vcore will be set a lot higher than average. So, you can gradually reduce your Vcore till it stays stable under stress. In other words, pre-set Vcore is not a must and it can be lowered which will help you with temps and prolong your chip's life.

Asrock Extreme9 is a very powerful board and if your chip has good features, you can push it to its limits with that board. Try these first and see how it goes....
