Would have been good so that I could have kept the block for my future motherboards as well..
*actually its 37ish cause you have to buy the heat transfer plate seperately. still an awesome deal and reusable.

The Extreme4-M is compatible with the block and then you just add your heatplate. I don't see any for the Fatal1ty but I'm guess its because of the vrm layout of my board. One can always fashion a custom plate from copper and use these blocks.

So you going with a new mb or keeping the Asrock?

Hey guys,

I got Asrock X79 extreme4 and i7-3820 with Corsair H80 water cooling and I got it all well running at 4.4Ghz with temps hardly reaching 45c at a load,

Also got G.skill ram (4x4gb- 2133) succesfully oc'd to 2400 with XMP on

so as I've read thought the whole post and I noticed that many of you were saying that max multiplyier was x43 on the same spec as mine, but I got it set to x44 ?? (it's max for me) and BCLK at 100mhz. I do want to go higher though, my countless attempts of playing with volts and BCLK get me either fail to load of would freeze at a logon screen,

I know that many suggest to reduce multiplyier and increase BCLK but at the same time I see sayings that changing BCLK could be damaging and not.
Does anyone know for sure? cant seem to find any understandable explanation for this

I'm running 35x133.33 and 1.325-1.350v ~4665mhz. Wow, you got a really nice chip that can do 44x thumb.gif

Thanks mate! Haha I guess I should be happy with that special chip I got biggrin.gif I'll try your settings and let you know how it went

What RAM do you have and what have you got it set to?

ADDED A FEW MINUTES LATER:
I tried your settings but PC won't even start...

Our poll question winners is The ASRock X79 Extreme11 for being the most wanted and sought after motherboard. smile.gif

I've added The ASRock's X79 Fatal1ty Champion to our sign up list and will be adding it to the OP once I can edit it. Here's what it looks like: wink.gif

Currently deciding between the Extreme 4-M and the Extreme9. I can get both in a trade for my 5970, obviously I'd get some cash with the 4-M. I'm leaning towards the Extreme9, but I wouldn't use half of the awesome features it has, and you pay for.

It's either a full tower Lian Li + Extreme9 + 16/32GB RAM, or a Mid Tower Lian Li + Extreme 4-M + 16GB RAM.

It's going to be fully watercooled (CPU + GPU(s)). Opinions?

I've always wanted to cram some watercooling in a small case, like a B10.

Keeping the Asrock. Spoke to someone on this forum that had previously reviewed/tested the extreme4 and gave me some insight to the VRM and capabilityies of this board. Basically, if I can slap the waterblock on and keep the VRM's cooled, he tested the mosfets to 300w. So I will have plenty of overhead to go crazy doing wahtever I Want to do. definitely on the mATX boards, the VRM heatsinks are very lacking, i found posts within the ROG forums of even the Asus Rampage Gene doing the same thing my board is doing currently (hardware level VRM temp throttling). So lets watercool this bad boy and see if I can blow something up!!!

I love my extreme9, and after the issues with the VRMs and overclock that others have had on the tiny boards, I would go with that for sure! 16GB of ram, more than enough, only get 32GB if you HAVE TO HAVE ram disks, and the Lian Li is a good choice in case.

Does anyone know for sure? cant seem to find any understandable explanation for this

The BCLK adjusts the base clock for the processor. As the base clock goes up, the PCI, memory and SATA bus speeds will go up as well. Now, the motherboard will "STRAP" the BCLK to a certain bus speed after it changes enough. So from 100-116 it will strap to 100, from 117-148 it will strap to 133. I would only go over 100 or 133 by +4, until you hit the next strap.

So you can set it from 100-104, 118-137, while still keeping your hardware safe. Anything from 105-117 risks damaging your hardware and you will be plagued with instability.

I am new to OCing but with help from this forum and a lot of trial and eror I have my X79 extreme6 and 3820 running stable at 4.625. The first thing you need to do is disable Turbo boost and exit the bios so the change can be made and then do the same for speedstep. I would set the ram to auto until I got it to boot and then start messing with the settings. Set the BCLK to 125 or 133 ( mine is 125x37 ) and see if it will post. Set the vcore to manual fixed and start with 1.35 volts, after you are able to boot you can start trimming the voltage back as much as possible.

 

If it still won't post you might try leaving the turbo boost and speed step disabled and set the Easy OC to 4.6 and try that and work from there.

 

Also If you would enter your computer spec's it would help.

 

Also if you would go here  http://www.overclock.net/lists/component/manage/type/RIG and enter your computer spec's it would help.
