For a 20min job and a few bucks for the liquid pro, that is a awesome result! and after completing the waterloop the results are just ridiculous!
is correct. Delidding makes an IB into the chip it ought to have always been. No more temp issues - but still have vcore limits. There is a OCN club link on my sig for good info on how to do it correctly if you are interested.I have bought a new sabertooth Z77
- The install went real smooth and I'm checking out the board's abilities.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
One issues I am working through - I am failing memtest with all 16GB
(4x4GB) populating all the slots, yet I can get each stick to run in each slot without any errors. (Crucial Ballistic Tactical 1866 9-9-9-27 2T )
Also 8GB works in either A1/A2 or B1/B2. Only have mem errors with all slots full. All 16GB still work fine in other Asus P8Z68-V/Gen3 board. I have also tried a 3570K and a 3770K to verify it's not the IMC.
Any issues like this encounterd with this board? I really hope I do not need to RMA it, so maybe someone here has ideas on BIOS adjustments or other ideas?
