Now I’m running 3,9 GHZ. The temperatures are high especially at very high loads like Prime 95 1344k frown.gif , but under normal usage they’re “far” under 80°C. Important is there’s no throttling in my opinion the only sure sight of too hot cpu because the software sensor readings are not accurate.

For this overclock I need a vcore of 1,26 v HWInfo average (+0.14 v in BIOS LLC ON), 1.31 v QPI/IMC, 1.34 v IOH, 1.2 v ICH and 1.65 v RAM set in BIOS. To be honest I’m not so sure if everything is 100% stable maybe I’ve to increase/decrease some voltages a little bit, the only thing I did was 5 minutes of Prime95 1344k test and then I increased vcore by one step. It should be enough for normal usage and games I hope normally I never have such heavy loads as in these stress tests. Running stress tests for too long damage degrade the cpu right and my cooling is not optimum.

At this point I’ve reached my overclocking limit for now because my temperature is too high to overclock further. The next step for me is to change this cheap crap inefficient PSU and improve cooling.

I’ve a good idea what is possible to do if the temperature is too high at very long maximum cpu usage. Go to windows energy settings, in the energy profile balance for example you can set a lower maximum cpu ratio (0-100% performance). If you set 99% turbo mode is disabled (highest cpu ratio).

Somehow this highest cpu ratio is special and the 22 is not selectable in BIOS at least in my case. Normally the cpu only use this 23 turbo ratio (with X5670 it’s 24) it if the cpu usage if high enough or many cores are used not sure.

This is not a good idea if you play old games for example or for programs that are single thread/core only. They does not generate high enough usage to activate this turbo ratio and your overclock is not always being used properly. The 21 ratio is instantly active if the cpu is used even a little bit regardless how high the usage is and this is good.

Thank you guys for the x265 benchmarks, for the low price that I will have to pay for a X56.. still I will get a nice improvement I think.

Also I am aware of the 5820K and 5930K scores but they are too expensive for my budget right now. sadsmiley.gif

Yep, you'll see a pretty large improvement over the 930 for sure.

The new instructions/ipc of haswell does give quite a boost though. On my 1660@4.6ghz I only get around 20fps.

Guys, I've posted the question a while ago but it apparently got lost. Anyone ever come across a partial de-solder of the X58 chip? Because what we have here with an EVGA X58 SLI3 board looks exactly like that, where it will post one time out of a few hundreds maybe, and the conclusion so far has been that heating the board and the chip up may be what causes it to post. Other than that, I blame the BIOS chip, but not sure about that - why would it after all post once if the BIOS chip is faulty?
post #7406 of 7957
Uncommon, but possible. The introduction of lead-free solder led to many problems like that. I'd consider an oven or hot-spot reflow. Nothing to lose...
post #7407 of 7957
Yeah, true, nothing to lose smile.gif What kind of temperature do I need to apply? I have a BOSCH heat gun that can do up to 500 C, apparently it takes an order of magnitude less than that.
post #7408 of 7957
I'd try pressing down on the chipset, see if pressure helps, would point to cracked solder. Youll need to research the method, i considered it with a laptop, but just worked around the missing SATA bus another way.

Hey I have a Gigabyte X58A-UD7 with the marvel chip for sata III. I have two connections but it is recommended to use only one. So I have my boot SSD connected there. The board also has a 2 usb 3.0 connections. Is it possible to connect a USAP USB 3.0 SSD and get the same speeds as if it was connected to a sata III chipset?

Not likely. The x58 USB 3 is less then native capable. And the marvel controller is a tad slower than the native Intel controller. I would use the Intel controller and test the USB 3.0. Windows 10 is also awful with USB transfer speedss
