I've also seen a few reports saying that the Samsung 950 Pro can be a boot device even on legacy BIOS systems. I plan to try it out, but it may be a few weeks. I ordered a PCIe M.2 card off eBay but it arrived with a resistor missing off of the PCB so I'm waiting for the replacement to ship from China. Then I'll have to wait for a good deal on the 950 Pro...but I've definitely seen people who were able to get it to boot on x58.

ya thats the drive i heard may work on x58 , so it would still require a adapter ?

Im not sure if anyone on here will know or not but i can't figure it out myself. I have a x58 Asus rampage 3 extreme motherboard and am trying to use a velocity Solo X2 card so I can get the most out of my ssd. The issue is if i put the adapter in any of my pcie slots it won't post past the splash screen. I tried the Solo x2 in my z97 system and it works fine so I'm unsure what the issue is.

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.

you should set the ioh at one tick above auto.

CPU shoot for 3.8 to start.. 1.2875 v's (might need more) what ever Base clock gets you there. adjust memory, and Uncore multis accordingly to stay with in the specs below. go up in increments and check stability.

QPI speed, lowest setting
Uncore, 3000-3200 to start. with a beginning VTT voltage of 1.325 drop it incrementally to find lowest possible
Memory 1600, what ever timings are SPD. voltage, whatever it is rated for. lower is better
full vdroop compensation (Xeons love stable voltage).

Just gonna have to keep voltages down and play around.

Scored a X5660 and a P6X58-E PRO motherboard on the cheap. How should I start overclocking?

Just google something like "x58 overclock" or "gulftown overclock"

There are plenty of guides, essentially just separate each variable (bclk/uncore/ram/cpu freq) and test until stable.

For a quick and dirty OC, go 185bclk, ~3600 uncore, QPI on lowest (non-slow) option, ram at ~rated speed, LLC on, speedstep & turbo on, 1.35 Vcore, 1.35 QPI, everything else on auto.

Test and drop voltages from there. This should be an easy stable 4.2ish and within intel specifications for voltages (but will probably be stable on lower voltages) - be wary of your temps under load

Quick overview for just OCing the CPU:

- Set RAM, Uncore, and QPI to their lowest multiplier. Set CPU to it's highest.
- Disable all power saving features, C-states, etc.
- Slowly increase BCLK, and run Intel Burn test or some other stress test software.
- If it runs for a few minutes without a crash or error, repeat increasing the BLCK.
- When it crashes, increase CPU voltage by +0.05, and test again.
- If it still crashes, make sure QPI, uncore, and RAM frequencies are at or below default.

Uncore should do at least 2800mhz before needing to increase VTT. QPI should be good to at least 7200mhz (3600mhz in CPUz). RAM depends entirely on your specific kit.

Here are my settings.




I'm looking to get the BCLK to 215, without raising voltage over 1.35. I was wondering if there are any other settings I can tweak. Thanks.
