I7 2600k @ 5Ghz or 3930k@ ~4.5Ghz - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Sounds good. The 3930K is a "beast" of a CPU, and it's nice that you also get quad channel RAM, PCIe gen. 3 (unofficially supported), and 40 PCIe lanes.

Considering I can keep 4.6GHz with 1.35 Vcore stable, you might be well and stable at 1.32 Vcore for 4.5GHz. No way to know for sure unless you stress test it.

Not sure if you kept it dynamic or not (though it sounds like it), so that it clocks and voltages down when you don't need the crunch power. Probably a good idea to use that when you can.

Up to 1.4 Vcore and 70° to 75° C for the high core temp is generally considered OK.

Managed to get to 4.7Ghz stable with 1.41v with max temps ~70c, though this Gigabyte Assassin 2 board, in my opinion, is really quite poor. I came from an Asus board bios and it is more rounded with fewer idiosyncrasises. this can't even do Wake on Lan. That fact I paid 25% of what it costs new does go some way to compensate, though the sound on this board is very good.

Nice OC there. thumb.gif

And yeah, the ASUS X79 boards are quality. I did a lot of shopping around before settling on the P9X79 WS. It has a lot of the "legacy" support features I wanted (actually, all of them that I wanted, except for floppy drives, but I wasn't expecting it - yeah, I know; ), as well as the new bells and whistles.

No on-board Bluetooth nor Wi-Fi on this particular model though. Oh well; those aren't something I really needed.

Yes, I'm very much like you in needing 'legacy' support but I don't need Workstation level motherboard like you. wink.gif . I still need one PCI slot (for Studio work) which limits my choices some what. I still have one eye on Asus boards and might still end up getting one though I am limited to the the P9X79, P9X79 LE or SABERTOOTH, which all have a PCI slot.
