I7 3820 OC with Asus Rampage IV Extreme

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So, Redid half of my build after being on a Q6600 OC'd @ 3.6ghz with an Asus Rampage Formula since 07'. (Old build is in my profile). I went with an I7 3820 and Asus Rampage IV Extreme with 16gb since I got a sweet deal on the Asus Rampage Extreme.

I instantly got it to 4.3 with the default bios settings, then easily just bumped the block till it gave me 4.55ghz and upped the voltage 0.05 (at 1.35)

The grand part is, Only a hyper 212 evo is cooling it with arctic silver 5 on it (Which I completely disregard every thermal paste application tutorial or rule and nearly used the entire tube but getting amazing temperatures.



So going to run at 4.5 for another couple of days then push for 4.7ghz and see what temps i get. Otherwise I'm able to stream BF3 on near all ultra at 1080p no hiccups at all. Pretty great upgrade only spent around 615$ for all three pieces (four if you include the thermal paste).

And for a proper burial, The Q6600 and Asus Rampage were placed in the Asus Rampage IV Extreme's box while the new Asus Rampage takes care of my new needs.

i just have to know really, not bashing or anything or complaining, but why would you get the rampage extreme, and not a 3930k to go with it? I see you got a good deal for the board, and im glad for you, but imo you should have went with a 3930k for the z79 platform if you already got the board tongue.gif


anyways, push that baby and lets see what it can do thumb.gif
