Shucks, until I finally pick up another digital camera I guess I'll have to settle for not being part of the club. sadsmiley.giftongue.gif

I plan on getting a NH-D14 and I want to reach at least 4.5 (preferably 4.6) on my 3570K. What range of vCore would get me there?

Also, my Sapphire 7970 OC will be arriving later today and I was wondering that if I place it in the second PCI-X slot from the CPU will it be running in PCIe 2.0 mode? [At least that's what it looks like from the manual.]

From what I've read the Sapphire takes up just over two standard spaced slots. I'm trying to optimize my layout because I also have a a firewire expansion card and a SB X-Fi. The former is currently in slot one (PCI-4x) and the X-Fi is the last PCIe x1 slot.

VCore required will depend entirely on the chip you have and whether or not it's delidded (and then only to the extent that the heat is exacerbating any instabilities). At a guess you should be able to get there with somewhere in between 1.27V and 1.37V but you might get a 'magic chip' and hit it at less than 1.2V! Or you might get a crapfest like my first 3570K and have it take 1.38V to hit 4.6GHz in a custom loop system.

If you only have the one card it shouldn't really matter if you are running it at 'only X16 2.0' bandwidth - maybe lose a frame or two on benches and games but unlikely even then - depending on what resolution, number of monitors, and the GPU dependency of the game/bench in question I would assume.

You didn't actually specify WHICH maximus board you have - but I assume since you're worried about the slots with only 2 additional cards - I'll guess the Gene. And as to photos - don't you have a phone or webcam - it doesn't have to be a 'good' photo, and you'd have the CPU-Z validation to back up the hardware 'proof'. biggrin.gif

EDIT: Actually, since you said 'slot one (PCI-4X) which I assume you meant "PCIe x4" in which case you actually have the Formula correct? You might want give us some more information - like what is being 'blocked' or at least is 'sub-optimal' about using the first PCIe x16 slot (since you can use the x4 slot fine right above it). Is the length of the card in line with the HD cage or something?

It is complete.... Or should I say I am done for now... lol I plan on getting another GTX 660 Ti sometime in the next few months.

I like having the Gene V on the test bench and using the Z77-M Pro for my daily usage rig..
the Gene V just looks awesome sitting out in the open like that..
biggrin.gif

some ironic news is that last night when finishing a case swap my Z77-M Pro's NIC decided t o go out.
so it seems I'm going to be using the Gene V as my primary after-all.
got my RMA approval already from ASUS, they do not play but it's the simple fact it went out in the first place.

I have the ASUS Maximus V Extreme mobo, still working on my build. Question, should I return this mobo and get something else? Heard horror stories of the CPU pins bending easily.

that's a possibility with every Intel LGA board..

That's not good.. Do you recommend any other LGA mobo's while I still have the window of return/exhanging the mobo?

nothing wrong with the one you have... have you tried it yet.? anything wrong.?
are you planning to remove the CPU several times.? if so then why.?

you get my point.?
post #2139 of 4012
Not yet, still waiting on the PSU and GPU. Still deciding if I should keep it or return it. I've just been reading the reviews of pins getting bend without any reason than installing the CPU in the mobo.

Thanks for the info, DiGiCiDAL. Using the stock cooler I can oc to 4200 with a .010 offset for the vCore and be stable, though of course the temps get high (as expected). I tried to locate an 1155 bracket for my old Xigmatek S1283 but couldn't find one, so I'm holding out until I get an NH-D14 or maybe a Havik-140, depending on pricing at the time of purchase.

I have the Max V Formula (see my rig info). I think I'm gonna stick with my current config and stick the 7970 (which should be arriving shortly via UPS) into the first x16 slot. I can always experiment but you're right--the diff between PCIe 3.0 and 2.0 is negligible on the current gen cards, esp for single card configurations.

Whenver I do a BIOS upgrade I lose my profiles. Maybe I'm just overlooking something, but I've saved my profiles onto a USB flash drive only to get an error about the profile not being compatible when trying to load it back after I've flashed to a new BIOS. Is there any way around this, or is this typical of all UEFI BIOSes? I never had an issue like this on my old Max Formula x38 board as the profiles were never erased after updating to a new BIOS.
