Hello,


Just got this CPU and everything seems to work fine except for overclocking. My multiplier is locked, bclk is locked. The only thing I can change is memory stuff. Am I missing something? Maybe a modded BIOS?

Thx,


Sorry If this has been addressed somewhere in this thread, I did search smile.gif.

You only can change the blck, multi is locked

Also My W3690 is on the way for my laptop.

Does the W3690(and all westmere) support DDR3-1333 native? My i7 960 only supports 1066 and it's slow on the ram side of things, I want faster tongue.gif
Depending on what is open for adjustment in your laptop's bios. The W3690 is completely unlocked. Natively

He has an X5670, so yes it's locked multi

I can change it on our rampage II. There's members in the club who have too. Are you running the last bios?

Yes, because somehow it is only possible to change these settings with the numpad + and – keys.

No.

So you can change the multiplier? Mine it greyed out, I can't even move to it. I'll check the + and - thing.

Everything is working like it should! Thank you 14600, I guess it didn't occur to me because I'm so used to using the enter and arrow keys.

Thank you!

All x56xx's are locked (and any multi QPI chip for that matter). The w3680/90 are unlocked.

But on x58 it doesn't really matter that they are locked as the BCLK can be pushed to 200mhz with relative ease.

I think this shows it's a daft way to measure performance across machines.

LINPACK is highly memory subsystem limited and more threads than number cores just increases cache contention with it.

Seeing more performance with one thread per physical core is completely normal in LINPACK tests.

Your X58 system doesn't have AVX. AVX gives an enormous boost to LINPACK scores (my 5820k gives ~375 GFLOPS at 4.3GHz).

But yes, LINPACK is as synthetic as it gets...it's supposed to be, and it has to be to be a good stress test.
