Thanks, I think it's 2.0, it's one of those cheap Sandisk Cruzer USB's from a few years ago, fairly certain it's 2.0. How do you like that E5 1680 v2? Is it a worthy upgrade from i7 4930k? They are going for $700 now on ebay. It's just that with DX12 not arriving as quickly as we thought it would (less converts to Win10, including myself, well I have to admit I am dual booting Win 7 and Win 10 on different drives, in case my main OS wigs out for whatever reason, and to eventually get Forza Horizon 3) I don't see a compelling reason to move from 6 to 8 cores. Maybe if I see some benches showing a significant performance gain to be had between an i7 5960x (only because it's comparable in performance and there are hardly any 1680 v2 comparisons) and an i7 4930k I will be motivated to save for that Xeon.

Thanks for all of the help. I'm tempted to try this tonight but will probably wait until tomorrow after coffee.

Ok so first powered down my rig , switch to the secondary BIOS put in a fat32 formatted usb 2.0 in top port next to clr button , hold button underneath until it starts to flash then release and wait .

And nothing in the bios menu except for copying down any settings in chip your about to flash .

I'm looking at the E5-2692V2 12C/24HT . 130w 3.5ghz turbo . But as far as I'm aware its locked multi .

Any reason to be interested in that CPU? Why not E5 1680 v2? It's probably the best CPU for our board, I just can't justify it from a cost-benefit analysis perspective at this point in time. Splurging on 1080 Ti was an essential upgrade for me, but I just don't know that I can justify spending another $700 on a CPU upgrade when the vast majority of the titles don't seem to have proper multi-CPU support.

I wish Vulkan and / or DX 12 were a reality already. It's now pushing 2018, we've been hearing about DX12 since 2014, and its nary to be found (Rise of the Tomb Raider, golf clap).

Yes that's correct .

Ummm 12c 24t also its 20% of 1680v2 price in Oz . I cant spend moolah I don't got redface.gif

Edit:

How is that processor any better than 4960x?

Yeah USD to AUD exchange rate which makes em $1100 to $1350 2nd hand and $1600 to $2000 new of the 4 on ebay from 'Murica PLUS 10% min import duty which applies to anything over $1000AU............. wth.gif

I have no idea about its 3.5Ghz max turbo clock performance compared to my 4960x @4.6@2800 thinking.gif

It's worth the upgrade from a benching perspective. Even encoding and such. But for gaming, no.

$700 is a more realistic price, I paid $1165 for mine, over $1500 CAD near two years ago.

@HOMECINEMA-PC

Your 4.6Ghz 4960x is better than any 26xx V2 12 core.

I thought that might be the case mate . Its a solid 4960x with a strong IMC that's running cooler than ever

That's the message for updating the bios .

CPU-Z will show you if its updated

post #14268 of 14365
Yes that's normal operation when it updates from one bios and or chip to another .....

Y didn't you write down your previous o/c settings u silly rolleyes.gif

U should have no probs dialing in 4.6ghz @1.4vc
post #14269 of 14365
when to clean up the rig do some maintenance heres what the res looks like on the H240x i can see floatys in there tried a bit of soap didnt seem to help, im looking at getting this to replace it,

New Kit this should be a nice upgrade eventhe the cpu isnt gettin hot but id rather err on the side this may not last, given it doesnt wanna get clean,
post #14270 of 14365
Can somebody with this board, and 2400MHz Dominator Platinum's run the Aida 64 memory read benchmark and post their result?

I'm finding that running my ram at 2400MHz results in a lower benchmark score, while scaling back to 2200MHz results in a better benchmark score.
