It definitely does but surprisingly the cpu & both gpu's still work too. I'm some glad I put a backplate on my top gpu otherwise it would probably be dead right now.

Yikes. That made me do a Wild Eep.

Hope it is all good when dried out.

Quick questions RE Delidding: how much temp did you drop, and how do I fit the HSF when the top surface is so much lower?

That little jaunt might have taken a toll, I think I need 1.3Vcc for 4GHz now frown.gif

All the settings in the BIOS were for the Cinebench Run, and results in Turbo of between 22 and 23x. Lowering any of Vcc, Vtt or Clock Drive will reduce stability, and the Skew seems to help a tiny bit too. Other settings are from the 4GHz that i have been running for the last year.

Going from 4-4.45 GHz is requiring a huge slab of Core voltage and LLC on too. Temps are 90+ in IBT, as CPU power consumption jumps 50+ W, from 1.27-1.375v. I dont actually want to damage this chip, so I've called it quits here.

I've not tried higher BClk, and I won't change the PCIE. RAM is 1600MHz rated as in the picture.

The other 5650 was a little cooler and had a lower AutoVolts Vcc, but i dont want to **** it up.

Oh, the Uncore didn't pass IBT at 3600 with 1.295v (with otherwise stable settings).

So yeah I'm stuck now, any tips?

Dude more than 90c in IBT? You need to definitely down clock. Your current cooler can't handle the heat, bad airflow or you need to lower your ambient temps tremendously. At least you've called it quits.

4Ghz shouldn't require high voltage. Your vCore is 1.3875. That's way to high 4Ghz and reasonable temps.
Try increasing the CPU PLL to 1.8v and increasing your QPI\Vtt voltage a little [1.31-1.32v for testing purposes].
You are pushing the Uncore well above the stability recommendation of 1.8x or 2x of the DRAM Frequency. So your Uncore should really be around 2808 or 3120. Anything higher isn't necessarily guaranteed to work, but maybe you can get it working.
You can also also try setting the QPI PLL and IOH Core to "AUTO" as well.

1.3v is way to much for 4Ghz. 1.3v is usually around 4.2Ghz-4.4Ghz. It's possible that you may have damaged the CPU. No one will know, but you so you can keep testing it to make sure.

I was watching a youtube video when I suddenly got a BOSD. I first thought it was just an unstable oc, that is until I took my headphones off and all I could hear was *splash* *splash* *splash*, my Eisberg 240 sprung a leak frown.gif . I quickly shut it down and ripped the side panel off... everything was soaked with water. I have most of it cleaned up now, the mobo took the brunt of it but believe it or not it's perfectly fine.
I had originally intended to use this mobo for sub zero so the top half of the board has dielectic grease on it (in the socket too) and I think that is what saved it. It seems the cause was that the threads in the resovoir for the fitting were stripped and that caused the fitting to come loose and spray water everywhere.
Still need to test my 780 ti's and the x5670 to see if they still work.
This sucks. :/

That does suck. Man I hope everything still works.

Thanks for the answer, Kana. I will see if your suggestions allow me to get there. I will assume the chip is OK, and continue testing with a view to reducing Vcc. I plugged some mesh at the front of my case and i think thats pressurised my case, so the cpu gets cooled a few degrees better. With the other chip i dropped a couple of degrees by wiping it across fine sandpaper.

This chip defaults to 1.2v, so 1.3 for 4GHz isn't too crazy*. I'll avoid 90c and get back to you smile.gif

EDIT: The VCore measurement in Windows should be very accurate [pretty sure if Intel can fit 1.17 billion transistors in here, they can measure the voltage accurately wink.gif ]
Every time I have compared BIOS to Multimeter it's been closer to the Windows reported voltage.

*hey, maybe it's just a really bad chip wink.gif

Sorry I keep forgetting my chip is a special case and different than most. I thought you could hit 4Ghz between 1.22v-1.27v. Some people can run those volts and some can't I guess. 1.3v is fine if that's what your rig requires.

My other chip does 4 at 1.27 and 3.2 uncore at 1.25 v.

They're all different. This one has a 17C core temp spread rolleyes.gif
post #5888 of 7854
Well thankfully everything still works well after that disaster smile.gif . Except maybe a stick of ram but I have some spares so it's not a problem.

Right now I have it running Realbench to help get rid of any small spots of moisture by getting everything nice and hot.

Considering the amount of water that poured onto the board while it was running I'm flabbergasted that it still works perfectly.

I think I'm going to replace the CMOS battery in this Gigabyte X58A-OC. I think that's what's causing it to not save my CPU OC's.
