i7 3820 - 4820 Overclock Club - Page 63

post #621 of 6498
Thought I'd join in here as recently picked up a 3820 and Asus Rampage IV Formula board. Had a UD3 before, but didn't like it at all.

Don't have one of the greatest chips - currently trying for 4.75GHz. So far 1.376 isn't stable frown.gif But I am still learning the limits of the CPU and motherboard.

Most expensive chip and board I have ever bought, so I don't want to kill it. Don't mind torturing the CPU a bit, but I want the board to last for years.

Getting to 5GHz takes north of 1.5V, and am not prepared to push it that far. Did for a couple of minutes and IBT pushed temps up to 92 C.

It's a pity as I was really hoping for 5GHz....

So I think my target will be to keep voltage under 1.4V, and aim for the best possible OC on that.

Any other performance will have to be gained from the insane amount of tweaking options on this board. 99% of which I have no idea what they are, but will learn biggrin.gif

While this may sound like a *** question, will ask anyway. While this pc is not used solely for gaming, that is it's main purpose. What are the odds of improving the clocks if I dropped the HT? Would the loss of HT be worth any possible gains?

It may make a little bit of difference but it seems to make less of a difference on Sandy Bridge than it did on the old Nehalem processors.

for my part i tried at 1.52v and temps were good but my goal was 4.5ghz for 24/7 i push the vcore at 1.52v so im sure it is stable and after that i decrease the vcore to find the good spot

Well, I had a 2500K at 4.5, so wanted a bit more out of this setup.

It's unbelievable how smooth BF3 is at 4.75 though, compared to the 2500K at 4.5 Not that the 2500K was bad, but the 3820 seems to handle those occasional heavy load spikes a bit better.

Tell me about it. On Crysis 1st map where you first overlook the island at sunrise I had 45 FPS at max settings on my 920 at 3.9 and about the same on my Q6600 at 3.3. Now with the 3820 at 4.75 I stay above 60 FPS at the same spot. Unfortunately on the 2nd map overlooking the town it looks like I am still at 45 FPS. Bah.....maybe Crysis can stay above 60 FPS the whole game in 2015. LOL

Just pulled the trigger on a 3820 and MSI x79-GD5 Gen 3 for $420 biggrin.gif


I have a D14 coming in soon and I haven't picked a set of ram yet. I'm looking 16gb and I'm happy with a modest OC. Can you guys point in me in the right direction for picking ram and OCing this chip? I've been out of the loop since I got my e8400. All the guides seem to be for Ivy and Sb.

Cheers thumb.gif

edit: how are these?

If your asking which one by posting links then I would say get what you can afford. I got 2133mhz quad channel Gskill Ripjaws X ram for a p67/z68 setup off here brand new for 100-120ish. It runs fine at 2133mhz with a blk 100 strap or 2000mhz@125x37 using the xmp profile. Your not going to see a tremendous difference.

Yeah I'm just going to pick up a cheap set of 1600 gskill's. Anything looks good compared to my current ram setup
