in all honesty, i did publish some other staff in my previous post, making the point that publishing just numbers, without those being stable or viable as 24/7 rig, is just a bit nonsense. I mean, i can go around 4,7ghz on my xeon at almost 1,5v ish and publish some small test like CPU-Z bench, superPi, CPU Queen or even i can manage to pass a Cinebench R15 (if lucky), but what's the point of that, if at any moment i can get a BSOD??
this is an example of what i'm talking about: http://valid.canardpc.com/7l7zrn
do you really think this CPU can pass IBT, Lynx or Prime? no!!!. that CPU is not stable, at all.
Is overclocking for us (not applied for professionals) only getting the max CPU speed possible even if that implies not being stable, nearly at all ?? i don't think so.
I mean....it would be nice, imo, if anybody who posts just adds the real info, like: This is my rig, it's for showing off purposes , it's not stable at the settings shown, take this info as with a bit of salt.
I can pass as many Cinebench R15 as you want on my X5460 at 4,3ghz 1,38750, or maybe even less voltage. I can be browsing, watching a youtube video, listening to music and running Cinebench R15 all together and still pass it without a problem, i have screenshots. But to be stable in Lynx, i need to go to 1.40650 and preferably 1,41250 to pass the test (IBT will eventually fail, Lynx goes nice, and prime definitely fails), because other than that vcore is just a BSOD.
Moreover, i can pass as many R15 bench on my X5460 at 4.3ghz with the AIO in the lowest performance setting as you want, not going over 65ºC, but in lynx or prime or IBT i will need full performance of the AIO, side panel off, and i will still go well over max Tjmax.
I don't get the point, honestly, of posting images of non stable rigs, unless you say that that is not stable.
Don't get me wrong please. What i'm trying to say, is that if you , or me, or anybody posts results, there is a big probability that people will take for granted that every X5470 is 24/7 stable at 4,7ghz with bareable temps, Or that you can get an X5460 and go up to 4,7ghz rock solid. That's not true, and i think we should be very serious on this matter.
it would be very easy for me to post just some manipulated results of my X5460 going at 4,6ghz just showing CPU-Z. But i don't think i am doing any favour to this post, no matter the reason which you though to do that.
i have no problem in seeing screenshots of high numbers in oced xeons , as far as you explain exactly what we see. Because if we dont, we just get a very bad perception of this.
And to begin with, i apply exactly what i've said to myselfEdited by Piskeante - 4/12/17 at 6:08am
