Nice.

Ok guys I've finally been running my setup long enough to post some data. I've also ran another quick stability test. This time I've ran IntelBurnTest. This program is the only program that I know of that can make your CPU melt. It also does a great job as far stability goes.

X5660 @ 4.2Ghz

-Stable & Passed Multiple Stability Test
Ambient Temp: 20c
CPU Temp Min: 22c [Idle]
CPU Temp Max: 58c [peak during stability test]
CPU Temp Avg: 39c - 45c 100% Load

Voltage: Offset
Idle: 0.98v - 1.03v
Load: 1.25v

Usually throughout the day my temps hover around 23c - 25c while idle. This is great since I can get the power saving benefits as well as the great OC speeds. No need to push a constant 1.25v into the CPU when it is not needed. In Cinebench R11.5 I scored 10.41 pts [4Ghz - x23]. So far I've had no issues. No BSODs and no freezing. I'm going to continue to run my PC like this. I could probably increase the Vcore a little more and squeeze out 4.4Ghz offset, but that would require a little more vcore. I'm more focused on getting great speed and low temperatures. Stock speeds have also been very good as well. This will help me render and compress files quicker.

Guys,

Before I install the x5660 and Cooler this weekend I want to run some benchmarks on my current 960 and check temps. What programs should I use or is there a guide on here that I can reference?

What I have tried in the past was cpu z and prime 95. Would these suffice to check monitor temps and speeds?

Thanks,
My x99 baby

Those two will work for stress testing and seeing specs on the processor such as current clock speed, voltages, etc. But for temps you definitely want to use another program. I personally use Real Temp and it works great. Not to mention it's free!

I give up. Same story on the sabertooth. Actually i get a red cpu led and dram led and no post, no speaker sound.
I guess I got fleeced when I purchased this x5650.
I tried clearing cmos, single dram stick, single gpu and absolute minimum required things for a sucessful post and bios navigation.
No go. MemOK! was useless.
I guess Imma return this board as well and pretty much stick with my FX the next couple of years.

I guess I just have the ****tiest luck.

Timeofdoom sorry to hear that man. I'm not sure what happened with that Rampage 3 extreme, but I think the CPU might have been your problem. Two motherboards have died. You have a crappy CPU man. That's what it sounds like to me. Especially if the MBs came from working builds. I'm beginning to get a bit worried about the low priced X5650s and X5660 as well as other Xeons. I usually only buy from bulk sales [company] instead of a single buyer selling a single chip, I believe single buyers have either ruined the chip, have a CPU that doesn't PC or perform well....... or are looking for the "golden chip" and selling the scraps for little to nothing.

Having the CPU and RAM Q-Led can mean several things. I think the CPU is definitely having some issues, but I believe the RAM is fine. Do you have another CPU you can use or borrow? The L5639 has skyrocketed in price. I hope I didn't have anything to do with that spike as well as the other Xeon spikes. I don't believe it's your MB or RAM. I think that CPU is faulty as hell.

Thanks for the cheer up Kana, but I don't really have another CPU at hand - and I already tried reaching out (when I had the R3E) on local forums and to friends but apparently nobody seems to have these chips around anymore or something.

So I'm just not gonna bother.
It sucks, but I'm gonna return the motherboard..
..and as for the chip... it would actually cost me so much to return it in shippings, that it'd cost more than the price of the chip itself. So I'm not quite sure what to do with it. I guess I might as well dump it before it claims anymore motherboards. redface.gif

I guess I'll stick with my original plan - wait a couple of generations and see what small-formfactor CPU and GPU (Or APU, mind you. DDR4 is around the corner, which might make them legit) offerings we'll have by then. wink.gif
Or I might just go for a console as a "value/social investment", since I'm gonna start at my bachelor at Uni this Summer, so I'm gonna be a "broke" student the next 3+ years.

In the end, this didn't cost me that much, everything considered. 200$ or so, with what, the chip costs and the return shippings.
Just utterly sucks, that's all.

I have had good luck with the resellers, 2 x5660 and a x5650. But with the Asus boards you have to have the latest bios installed, if it is not a WS class board.
My P6T deluxe V2 came and would not post or do anything. Knowing I did not have an i7xxx cpu to flash the bios.
I ordered a preflashed bios chip for the board on e-bay for 13.05$ and as soon as I installed it, the board came to life and works great.
I can link to the board I bought of e-bay and tell you what he took as an offer if ya like.

Nah, Im good. The sabertooth I ordered was supposed to have the newest bios, but its still like that. I just want to return it, get rid of chip and get this frustrating experience outta the back of my head yknow. But ty for the thought.

I'm sure you was looking for a nice budget build. Hate it didn't wok out for you as it has for a lot of other users. There's nothing wrong with consoles. I play PC and consoles. Mostly PC lately. You can always catch some decent builds for a good price if you are patient. Since Haswell-E is coming you might be able to get a decent upgrade as people update to the latest and greatest.

Kana those are great temps.

Is this rig water cooled?

Also do you prefer to overclock with turbo enabled or disabled?
