The second UD3 board didnt post at all with my 2 3820 cpus even thou it was on latest beta bios.
The fatal1ty didnt post at all with none of my 2 3820 cpus and it had 1,20 bios which in theory supported the cpu.
I got a 3920k and voila! it worked first attempt just fine. I updated bios to latest version and my first cpu still didnt work at all but the second i7 3820 works just fine.

And for the motherboard, my first impressions are really really good. In the bios the VID of the cpu is just 1.150v so it looks promissing, and it looks very complete on features.
Ill post some more info when I get everything working and start ocing smile.gif

Anyone with the problem I described just put in a 3920k, update bios and problem solved. Notice that not always latest bios does the trick, sometimes its another verion , and some cpus wont even work but those are only a few.

Whats your VID on bios? I wanna know if mine is low or not.
Temps are a bit high thou, its cold these last 2 days here and temps are higher than I had with other boards and cpu. Not sure why if its using less volts.

About the LLC...

Good.


Also, is there a Extreme9 bios higher than 2.30?

Anybody running Windows 8 with their extreme 9 x79 boards? The drivers and utilities disk that comes with is useless. I updated to bios 2.81 and updated every driver one by one and they're all beta. Im now getting some slower transfer speeds and a little buggy feel across the board. Anyone else experiencing this?

Hey guys.

Im going to install another 16Gb kit on my system so Ill be running 32Gb. Do you recommend getting rid of the pagefile?
Im thinking about making a ramdisk for windows temp files, IE explorer cache... Is it a good idea?

I'd get rid of the pagefile because you won't need it with 32GB of RAM. Heck, I turned off and I "only" have 16GB. It also saves you some space on your drive, and that's important if you have something like an SSD as your primary drive. Every GB counts on them.

Anyways, I'm getting my 3820 close to 4.7GHz. Right now I'm running it at offset 1.35v (BIOS)/1.32v (CPU-Z) @ 117x40. I got errors on 3hrs of Linpack (OCCT), so it may just need a little bit more volts for it to be stable. My temps are 68C for cores 0/3 and 61C for cores 1/2 on load with linpack. The idle temps about 30-33C on all cores. The temps are pretty odd, but I know that I put on enough TIM and the HS is seated properly. Maybe that's just how SB-e runs.

On P95 Blend, the temps are about 61C on cores 0/3 and 57C on cores 1/2. I also got my RAM running at 2184MHz @ 10/10/10/24/1T @ 1.5v. I need to up the bclk because I got these stable at 2240MHz before on the same ratings. EDIT: stock settings (11/11/11/28/2T @ 1.585v) 1.585v is what the mobo defaulted the RAM at.


EDIT2: Stable 4.7GHz @ 1.37v (BIOS)/1.35v (CPU-Z) Now, I'll just inch up the bclk until it gets unstable.

Whats the max safe temperature for the cpu cores and max safe voltage for the 3820?

My temps are a bit high and Im suspecting it may be the TIM or the heatsink but im not very sure.
Im using Antec h20 620 and Arctic silver MX-3.

Dont go over 1.5v for long stress testing or anything. Stay under 1.5v. tempwise ppl are saying 80~85C is acceptable tho i wouldnt recommend that for 24/7 use. What is your ambient at and whats your temps?
By the way u can find a lot of test results here that can give you some idea;

My ambien is pretty low atm, around 15 ºC in the room. Thats why I asked, in the summer we can get over 30 ºC and it worries me. I suspect that the TIM is not working right or something. The VID is 1.15v atm so temps should be pretty low.
At least with the other cpus it was lower even with more volts on them so im just wondering what could be wrong.
Thanks for the info and the link. I hope to install the extra memory for tomorrow and see if I can get some OC done.
