Got my X5675 last night and installed it. Megahalem and fans all cleaned up and thermal paste applied.
Not sure how many years I had the core i7 920 in there but this is the aftermath (lol):
Now with the X5675 in, temps seem really good at stock:
The max wasn't too shabby either after playing Overwatch for about an hour. Weird how it shows X5680 in the core temp app.
Haven't started the OC yet. I'm gonna run it stock for a day or 2 just to make sure the chip is good (got it used off ebay for $90).
I've kind of forgotten how to OC.
This thing shows 133 x 23 multi in my bios. I can't go any higher than 23 in the bios for whatever reason. Anyway,
sadly I don't really remember what I should do besides start playing with these settings:
FSB: 170'ish for around 4.0GHz to start
CPU core voltage: roughly around 1.35v to start
CPU VTT: no idea?
DRAM voltage: probably around 1.65v?
x58 IOH Cor voltage: probably around 1.18v?
CPU uncore multi: unsure
Mem bus multi: unsure but I think I should try to keep the memory around 1666MHz
One thing I never know is how to determine WHICH setting needs tweaking. Always wondered how you guys did it.
Anyway, here's a few screenshots of my bios settings.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/34050498/IMG_1090.JPGhttps://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/34050498/IMG_1089.JPGEdited by Deisun - 6/13/16 at 11:18am
