got to love the temps though at 4.9ghz at 42 degrees
Does anyone else find the below incredibly entertaining??? I was laughing for about 10 mins, this is my i5 2520 cinebench score...

thats just sad!

Oh? The i5 2520 doesn't automatically overclock if it's within thermal limits like the K series? So this is actually what an i5 will do at 2.5Ghz, nice.

Factory settings on my Asus Board, with my i5 2500K will overclock to 4.2Ghz if it's within thermal limits. (Turbo on all cores) But it will still read 3.3Ghz on Cinebench, so it makes the i5 look really nice.

Although it does have a side vent, I have adjusted it right up to the heat sink and fan, the side vent intake matches up and allow about half of the fan to get air, and it does draw through fairly fast there.

You need really good airflow in your case to cool the CPU Socket as it's on the back of the motherboard, and there needs to be a cutout for it for even reach there. Your CPU temp with the stock cooler is actually pretty good (55 Celsius under max load it looks like) So there is room for overclocking with the stock cooler, but the Socket Temp will probably hold you back.

-When you get your 212 Evo, take the fan off the stock cooler and mount it in the back of your case, to blow on the socket.

Asus uses 2.0oz of copper on it's boards, which is why it looks brown it's thick layers of copper with a light coat of black paint over it.

Okay so I'm one of the many that decided to purchase a complete AMD rig about a year ago based on the 990FX chipset in the hopes that Bulldozer was well shall we say going to be more that what it ended up being. So now we have Piledriver and once again it hasn't set the world on fire, though I hadn't expected it would. I'm still running a 1100T BE and while it's a great chip I'm thinking about upgrading but If I stay AMD I only have 2 things I can do drop in a 8320 or 8350FX and upgrade my GTX285 Graphics Card (which I'll be upgrading no matter what decision I make). So my question is this: Would the $220 really be worth it to upgrade the CPU or should I save my money and wait to see what the future holds for both AMD and Intel? I'm asking this in this thread because I always think it best to get info from the horses mouth as it were and since you all own the CPU I'm asking about I figured no better place to ask.

Thanks in advance for your help and opinions thumb.gif

Personally I have gone for a fx 8320 and I suppose it depends what you mean by set the world on fire, gaming no not really, though I had been getting under 60 fps in f1 2012 and now I am getting 85 but I can't be sure if this is processor alone because the day I installed the 8320 I installed 12.11 beta for my 7970, so it's a mixture.

In terms of multi threaded then for the price in my opinion it does set the world on fire, I've seen a couple of benchmarks (heavily threaded) where pretty much the only thing that beats them is a 3930 that's impressive.

I'd probably not get chip and put even more money towards the GPU.

How critical is this socket temp and the 62C limit? My board shows a warning when it reaches 65C, but I'm only at about 58C on the core temp.

Can someone with a motherboard that can overclock the bus clock and overclock the CPUNB at the same time show me all the obscure RAM memory timings they have, like drive strengths?

On my Giga all the strengths were set to like 1.5x. I lowered them to 1.0x to see if I could reduce strain on the IMC in the CPUNB and to see if that would help with the fact that this Giga can't OC CPUNB and system bus at the same time. I would like to see what all the functional overclocking boards have these settings at in the hopes that Giga is just having problems because they set some settings far too aggressively so they can look better in benchmarks.

Your CPU is fine, put that $220 towards a GTX670 or GTX660ti, whichever suits your performance needs and budget better. Unless you're into video encoding and rendering then I would get the CPU too.

I belive the socket temp can go to 70 Celsius. The system will get throttled due to the Socket temperatures as well, so it is a good idea to keep it cool.

I never liked my socket to get over 60 Celsius (just seems hot)
