protip, intel... since you're totally not listening... The information on the IHS that you want so badly? REQUEST IT AT PURCHASE OF WARRANTY, instead of @ reclamation of warranty. You claim to do this for overclockers, yet void warranty if someone uses a scotch bright pad to clean crappy TIM off of the IHS... amazing! Claim the only way to authenticate the processor is the IHS markings... Really? then what is this giant 15 character laser etch on the PCB for?

Sorry to hear about intel not honoring the tuning plan.

Here's the mobo that I just recently purchased:

selavi!

I thought I would be able to break even on this 4930k, but i'll be lucky to get $200 for this chip, me thinks.

either way. Welcome to the club! Whatever you do, don't use scotch bright, or lap your CPU if you want to use tuning plan!

to be fair, the directions in the manual are woefully inadequate, as they don't cover having to name the bios something specific. For this it's R4BE.w/e

I had to use a video from Tek Syndicate to get the proper directions, when I was trying to flash both bios w/o booting into the bios (recovering from zero day Cryptowall 2.0 attack paranoia)
Its the same procedure as the RIVE and the R4F . I should of typed it out then to explain a tad better .
Put bios on usb key go to tools > ezy flash 2 > look for bios file > press enter . Simples biggrin.gif

If you're watching 20 or so threads while doing things irl it can be hard to take the time to sit and balance the two. Sometimes it doesn't even matter how much time you take wording your reply because the person reading it still won't like how you said it. On the whole it's better than some others I've been and the only way you really get a friendlier one is if it's a very small and tight-knit forum where everyone knows everyone else. In my opinion at least.
Perhaps it's how certain games or most games implement FoV. Possibly even to the extent of tying different FoV sizes to different resolutions. Personally I'd like all games to have FoV sliders that are independent of your desired res but it's been claimed in the past that higher FoVs are viewed as cheating to certain game publishers *cough* EA *cough*. lol
More or less my take on this.
My bad then bud, it came off as being too critical. Don't worry though, I'd never judge you for running twin 670s on a 1050p display helpinghand.gif
Thanks for the info. I think mine is just regular LRT since it's been in here a while and I bought a good ~15-25' when first laying out this loop. I've seen this happen naturally with tygon and lrt that has been in a loop a long time but the rapid cooling had me worried. Anyway, thanks again.


I fully agree mate, definitely how you read it can change everything. But I also stand by my comment.

Same in this thread since i just very recently bought this motherboard. I do tend to be tolerant and assume the best rather than the worst as my take on skupps comment demonstrates, and I'm not often wrong - remember tone does not come across in written text ert effectively. some tend to get bent right out of shape really quick over little things whereas I don't. I mean it's a community and you'll have a normal distribution of attitudes in here. Some absolute tools, majority indifferent but generally interested, and some super helpful guys. Maybe you've more often encountered the lower end of the spectrum!

I do have to say I haven't been here long, it's just my initial impression. But those tend to last a while, and also, if that's the impression to new users, you might not see as many new additions to this forum that stay active after the first few posts...

I will correct my statement and say that not everyone is acting this way. I just like to discuss things, and not be shut down, with "why would you bother", or "that's so old why are you even talking about it", or just "you can't do that". Those sort of answers don't stimulate discussion, new thoughts or any sort of progress.

I tend to look around for a few hours on google before i post a question, because I don't like it when someone can answer my question with a link that has come from the first results page of a Google search. :\

I just have to ask guys - what is the lowest vcore you have ever seen required for 4.5GHz full AVX load stable (LinX, P95 after v26.6) on a 4960X? Or any IVY-E if 4960X is too specific.
post #11228 of 14934
Well, back to square one, as I feared... System worked fine, restarted several times, then it ran for quite a while, gaming, benchmarks, etc. However, I just restarted it to make some changes with my overclock, and that was all she wrote, same thing again. Tried both UEFI, and also tried resetting both and tried again, to no avail. So, as sad as it is, I am thinking to try to RMA the board... Clearly there is a fault with it somewhere, and I am tired of trying to figure this out for over a week now.

My only concern at this point, is that when I first got the board I noticed a 'chip' on one of the components, I was so excited about getting the board and building my badass system that I installed it to try it anyway, and everything worked, so I figured, "Meh, the board works, an RMA would be a waste of time", so I didn't. I had completely forgot about it until I went to remove the stock heatsink over the PCH, and noticed it. Now I need to RMA the board and I am concerned that it will prevent them from honoring the warranty.

Crappidy crap crap. Should have just contacted them the moment I saw that darn damage... That's what I get for being excited and wanting to use it instead of being logical.

Sucks dude frown.gif Photos of the chipped component if you're able?


Picked up a new CPU, swapped a local guy my 4960X for his plus some cash his way. Haven't tweaked PLL or VTT, just vcore only at the moment. Working my way down, not sure how low I can go yet.

All cores 4.5GHz @ 1.232v full AVX load stable 4.25 hours
