I have the ASUS Rampage III Gene.

Regardless of the settings I see here or elsewhere I'm always struggling to match overclocks.

I have had a I7-920, L5638 and X5675. Currently on the X5675.

Here are my bios settings, they seem to change every time I go in there.

Currently I'm not Prime95 stable. Corona may crash at these settings but I'm still trying to work things out. At 1.4vcore I am stable for anything but Prime95. Within an hour my system will lock up. Gaming any any benchmarks I run are stable. Besides Prime95 crashing I'm happy with 4.4Ghz @1.4vcore, I would just rather play it a bit more safe and lower my temps at the same time.

Running a Corsair H50 AIO as my HSF. At 1.4vcore my temps in Core Temp reach tjmax of 95c. Idle im 27-37c.

Looking to hit around 4.4Ghz stable. Any help would be nice smile.gif

Get yourself a propper water cooling. 95c is a bit high for that OC. 360 radiator or more...

Wow, shouldn't that Corsair water cooler be able to do a better job? Maybe redo the thermal paste? I was actually thinking of picking up the H50 to replace my old Xigmatek Black Knight.

Priming on small FFT my Xeon goes up to 85C @ 4,0Ghz 1.3vcore

AIO Watercoolers are typically really bad. My air coolers do better then basically every AIO

I seem to drop 20c if I run at 1.35v but it is less stable.

Either this mobo is not able to compete with the better x58 mobos or I have a few settings that could be better optimized.

For the three procs I have had on this board temps seem to be higher than others and I'm unable to reach the OC of others. A better HSF/AIO may be in order but when not pushing 1.4vcore it seems to do the job just fine. Hardly anyone runs at 1.4vcore anyways. It's a death sentence waiting to happen.

My H80i, H10 and H90 do real well. My H70 not quite as well for some reason.

I dunno how people have such bad experience with clc's. I have 3 refurb h55s on 290s. They barely make any noise and I have to feel the top of the pump to make sure its working lol. the fans arent loud and I have the cards at 1025/1300. My room was 82F the other day playing Black OPs 3 and the cards maxxed 57C. I just must be extremely lucky. I think ~50 bucks plus the kraken's 30 bones after 2 solid years of playing games with Zero issues was worth it.

I can't really comment on driver issues, I haven't really noticed any issues outside of a bad overclock or recently a malfunctioning 290X (RMA'd for a R9 390). Thats paired with a 4.2Ghz X5660 currently. Kind of peaked my curiosity now wither Eyefinity is better than nVSurround. My current set-up, nVSurround is easier to set up with 2 DVI and 1 DP. I had Eyefinity set up on my dual 7970s. Had to get an active DVI to mini DP adapter to work. Something that wasn't mentioned in a couple How-Tos I read at the time. I realize now I need to swap out the 2nd DVI for a DP and should eliminate the need for any active adapters and work with either brand. Think I used two DVi because I started with 2 580s but realized the 1.5GB memory was kind of a problem, or maybe that just what I had laying around. My problem is more with how its working in some games. RIFT it works great...looks great. COD BO3, not so much. Looks stretched at 5760x1080, and I have 27" monitors so its even wider I think. I think many of my games are that way. I got some newer games, dont have Witcher 3 yet. Been mostly playing Diablo 3, SWTOR and Borderlands 2. They all pretty much stretch. Thats why I am kind of wondering wiether to sell my 1+3 stand setup and go to a single 4K. I'd probably break even with the cost if I could find a buyer for even $700. I do like the multi-monitor though, web browsing/video watching/game playing multitasking that I do once in a while. Just something I am pondering right now.

Having used both 4k / eyefinity its a tough choice but really depends on you. I like 4k, however i do not like the 16:9 aspect ratio. After playing with surround/eyefinity for years i have grown to like surround/eyefinity in portrait. Eyefinity you can also do PLP not sure about surround. The issue also becomes how you feel about bezels. Landscape provides a nice long aspect but to me is too long outside the middle screen. Portrait seems to be best of both worlds as it gives a wider view than 16:9 but also give a higher view. The downside is the bezels are closer to each other.
The only variable i wonder about now is VR, it may be a better alternative if you can get past having something strapped to your head(my main complaint). If your priority is less trouble with games and aspect/custom ratios then 4k will be helpful.

I think i am going to try PLP again soon, i may have not given it enough time to see if its even more viable over PPP/LLL

I just got that very same motherboard for my X5650. After three different X58 mobos (RIIIE, X58 Classy and RIIIG) i've found upping BCLK is always more rewarding that upping multiplier. Get that BCLK to 180-190, then up the multiplier. With a 190 BCLK; you only need a 23x multiplier, with 200 BCLK you need a 22 multi, therefore needing less vcore to reach 4.4 GHz, placing less load on the H50, and running the CPU cooler. OF course, now you need to focus a bit more on IOH temps, but that's more manageable.

Yes. I had it myself (original H50) baaaack in the days when i had an i3-550 clocked to 4.8 GHz. It was priming at 80c, however after lapping it i dropped a huge 10c in temps. Can't believe how could Corsair sell a CLC with such an uneven surface.

Well, with mATX factors you do need to give up on some things, but it's not like you are going to break world rercords with it, but you can still achieve very nice performance. Still, if you think about it, clocking a 6-core behemoth with HT, a tri-channel IMC with loads of L3 cache to 4.4 GHz is not "low" by any standard.
