Parts are finally in. I plan on lapping the 3820 here at work, and then unboxing and going to town when I get home. Trying to get tomorrow off, we'll see....

DON'T LAP THAT 3820!!!. I have one and it's pretty much dead flat. Lapping is an extremely overrated measure that only results in voiding the warranty and resale value of otherwise perfectly fine CPU's.

Woops...too late. smile.gif

I read this on my phone yesterday as I was leaving work with a shiny orange 3820, sorry I couldn't reply yesterday. So anyhow, I'm running at stock settings right now. Got this thing built with Windows 7 installed early this morning. As I'm writing this I'm DLing my games back onto Steam and browsing the net with my core temps at around 24c.

After I got this thing built and posting late last night I tried tweaking some of the OC settings but reverted back to defaults after messing around a bit. Couldn't remember any of the settings that others were using and couldn't find anything that would post or run stable, so I'm going to freshen up on some of the 3820 OC threads and give it another go. Pictures and details to follow soon....

So far with a little tweaking I'm at 4.625Ghz (125 strap X 37) @ 1.365 VCore, 2000Mhz on the memory with XMP, manually adjusted the mem voltage to 1.65. Timings are 11 11 11 30 2T. - Anyone have any luck with tighter timings and/or without having to use XMP (using 2133 GSkill Rip-z's)

Haven't run P95 or IBT yet so I don't know it's certifiably stable, but I can say that I've been able to run 3dMarksVantage as well as MW3 for a few hours on the highest settings so it's at least, somewhat stable. Realtemp reports that during 3dMarks the minimum was 30c and max was 51c. Pretty satisfied with this H100 cooler, also I did lap the CPU.

Still have a bunch more tweaking and research to do but if anyone has a Sabertooth board + 3820 and would like to share some settings or advice please feel free!

Overall I'm very happy with this rig so far.

Going from an old sata HDD to this Force 3 240GB is unreal. Boot up time for Windows7 after passing BIOS screen is about 15 seconds! Shutdown takes about 8 seconds. thumb.gif

So, now I'm trying to figure out why my SSD is showing up in device manager as a SCSI device......

I have it plugged into the Intel Sata 6g controller slot, with a 6g cable. Set to ACHI in BIOS.....

hrmm.....

Wish I could figure this out. This is my first experience with a SSD, wonder if I did something wrong. I've been reading up something about intel rapid storage drivers, etc....still can't find anything concrete or that makes sense to me for a solve.

Anyone with a Sabertooth X79 using a SSD boot drive that can offer any suggestions would be really appreciated.

Scratch that, evidentally it's just a Windows labelling bug, SSD is working as advertised.
