@Neroy @cb750rob

Can't remember if I gave you guys a sponsored ride report. Here it is smile.gif

@Xevi - check out that bike I got to use. From this guy smile.gif

OK so I have to admit I didn't exactly do what I said I would, but let me start from the beginning smile.gif

First thing I did yesterday was change the most important settings in the the "DRAM Timing Control" section from "Auto" ( = 9-9-9-24-1T) to 9-9-9-24-2T, with everything else left the same (3.8 GHz CPU/ 1520 MHz RAM/ 3040 MHz UCLK @ 1.20v Core / 1.82v PLL / 1.26875v QPI/DRAM Core). Back in Windows I first of course did a quick standard IntelBurnTest run, which my system passed with flying colors at ~62 GFlops. Then I started the prime95 "In-Place Large FFTs"-torture test, which did not crash this time, but unfortunately one of the workers stopped after around 39 minutes due to a rounding error.

So I went back to the BIOS, increased just the CPU Voltage from 1.20v to 1.20675v, restarted the "In-Place Large FFTs"-torture test and let it run through the night. Luckily all workers were still running when I checked back this morning before leaving for work and I really hope this won't have changed when I come back tonight since I'd like to avoid increasing the voltage any further (max. core temperatures are as high as 73° now).

I was having crashes before, but now I'm up to 8 hours with no BSOD [Machine tested stable with IBT and Prime, but BOINC used to crash it in an hour].

I also reinstalled BOINC, because I was wondering if the crashes were software. not hardware [maybe because I crashed so many times it messed it up].

This time I installed the standalone version, with no Virtual Box. What version do you run? Noticed any difference between them? Either more stable?

[This is W7 64Bit, GUI BOINC, not command line]

Do you use the machines at the same time? I think I have to set my computing preferences up right to allow this. With "GPU While in use" and resource allocations at 100% I get some stuttering with music or YT [ I guess the pipeline and cache are totally flooded!], so I have set "Use at most xx% of processors" to 70 or 80, and that seems to fix it by reducing the overall load on each core.

Funny, though, because "xx CPU Time" just alternates between 100 and 0% load as duty-cycle. This doesn't help the stuttering.

Those two options seem to be named incorrectly, the wrong way around!

Any feedback etc?

Sorry man have been away for a while.
I don't run boinc you might have mistaken what I said about folding@home to Bill1024 a while back about wanting to know about boinc and running it. Wish I could help but I never had the time to get to it and just continued with folding@home since I fold mainly for cancer research, my father fight leukaemia for the 3rd time in the last 15 years so I really try to do my part about that. If I start to learn stuff on BOINC ill let you know smile.gif

@autoshot Good work. I forgot about 1T biggrin.gif It's usually a small and safe boost in performance to use 1T, but if you're already overclocked then it might push you over the edge.

@EvilMonk Thanks for getting back to me. I will add some folding to my workload, but still having problems with BOINC running SETI - I need to fix the prefs for it, as when I was setting up the 4.6GHz overclock for the 970SLI scaling benches above, BOINC ran at startup and then crashed the machine and ruined it's preferences/lost WUs etc... now I can't remember my password!

Good luck for your father, mine also has cancer, though a different type. You're in my thoughts.

Hope everybody is having fun with their Xeons smile.gif

unfortunately, one of the workers stopped after a little more than 11 hours. since increasing the CPU voltage further to 1.21250v yielded temperatures in the high 70s under load I decided it wouldn't be worth the extra couple of MHz and set the clock back to 3.74 GHz (= 990X). I haven't had time to prime-test it yet but I hope I finally found the sweet spot smile.gif

just a quick update: my Xeon X5650 survived 22 hours prime95 In-Place Large FFTs at 3.74 GHz | 1.20625v. I'm running another torture test at 3.76 GHz right now to see if this is also stable (I'd really like to have at least ~61 GFlops, which I don't at 3.74 GHz... biggrin.gif)

maybe not these chips dont seem to generate much heat at all iv been keeping my x5675 at 4.4ghz and never passes 50c on normal use and around 75c doing ibt in a mid tower case with 6 hardrives a 5850 and crappy airflow.

That's why I am thinking getting another NH-D14 for my X5675. I just got another, but I'm thinking about using it on the W3690 I just ordered to replace the dead X5650 in the RIIIE. Thanks to @chessmyantidrug for pointing this one out a while back. I did a side by side comparison at CPUBoss, and its indistinguishable from the i7-990X, except you can get the W3690 for half the cost and has better memory speed support. I got mine for sub-200. I didn't go for the X5690 because I understand from some threads that I saw mostly @EvilMonk and chess discussing it that the W chip is unlocked. Why get a 130W chip you ask? Because I own two 95Ws already, a X5660 and X5675.

Getting back to my original thought...I nearly the same set up as your Xeon-Wolf,@Bal3Wolf. Its Vulture in my sig. I tried my X5675 at 22x200, but the first core would creep up to 80-85 at full load. A lot higher than it would like. I know I mentioned this a while back, just haven't had a chance to pull it apart and see why the H70 is doing such a lousy job. Don't want to spend another $60 on a cooler, but then again I just got some upgraded fans for the X5660 system and spent that much on the fans. Its a used system I bought off a friend...think the case is a CM Elite 690 or RC-690. Fans are all caked with dust, and only push 44CFMs. (Best way to clean them, btw? I'd like to get a DataVac soon). I got a couple JetFlos for the side and back, and a couple Corsair Air series SP120s for the front and top. Should be pushing 90 CFM at top speed. Hope to bring the X5660 down a few degrees and see if I can't get it to 4.2Ghz from its current 4Ghz. Also,right now I have the X5675 at 25*160 and the cores are around 60-65C at load. At 20x200 it runs a lot hotter, in the upper 70s. I guess thats because you are pushing more data through the bus/QPI? I believe the vCore voltage is higher too. I'd have to check, but when the Bclk is 160, the vCore is at 1.20, but at 200 Bclk, its around 1.33.
