Side note, I finally may do an SR-2 to prolong my rigs lifetime

If that's indeed LGA1366 socket in your machine, it's not a laptop. It's a portable workstation.
No laptop could have capable enough cooling for 130W CPU (W3520).
Not even close by an astronomical shot.

Thank you @ Voxson5 and Srialmaster!

Awesome.. it seems these guys jumped in when i had life happen at home!!! glad to see you got the base clock isolated. Keep the memory speeds where it needs to be with the multiplier.

You may be able to get a higher speed out of the ram. but that would call for loosening (raising) the timings. But lets keep it simple to get the core clock where you can be comfortable with the voltages and temperatures. Then you can start tweaking things a bit more.

EDIT: Since we share a very similar bios, you do have quite a bit of options to mess with to fine tune things

Hey, thank you man! Yeah so many settings it has been a bit overwhelming to start with but I'm really becoming familiar with everything. Here is my last result so far 30mins+ on prime95


Really feel like I could hit 4.4, I did try but after 5-6minutes I froze I think due to lack of vcore/temps(around 1.33-34 is the limit for my heatsink) and it doesn't help that it's an extremely hot summer this year, once I get a better heatsink to keep temps I should be able to hit it easily now maybe even 4.5!

If it has a Battery, It's enough of a laptop for me

Fits in my laptop bag

Does anyone want to answer my question?

Looking pretty good smile.gif

You are pretty much getting into diminishing returns, as further step ups will require more and more vcore and produce more and more heat.

Not to say that there is not room for a bit more improvement!

Better speed can come from your ram timings + frequencies, uncore etc.

You can also fine tune voltage to help with heat output - offset vcore can certainly help here for when you do not need to push your cpu.

What heatsink are you using? Any spare fans that you could add on?

Could look at case airflow too - more / better / relocate the fans.

Also, moving your gfx card to slot two can reduce latent heat at your cooler (they are both 16x 2.0, so there is no speed penalty).

Yeah I have a EVO 212 which is quite on the low end for heatsinks. Do you think playing with the ram timings will help me much? When I isolated bclk I hit 210 and I had at least 30mins running in prime95/+ multi tasking a lot. Once I brought the multi up to 21 and had vcore at 1.33 my cpu was getting pretty hot and it took about 5mins to freeze up (never bluescreened).

Moving my gpu down a slot is not a bad idea, I have a gtx 580 and it puts out a lot of heat! Mobo is quite compact tho as you already know so it will only go down like an inch at best. Also have been thinking of getting a smaller case for this desktop since there is a lot of wasted space, the motherboard is really tiny compared to my last one. I will also look to get a better cooler, a bigger air cooler preferably tho I don't want to spend 100+ on a system that cost me less than 200 to put together, though heatsinks can be reused for many projects so I will consider.

May I join in, just found out this was a club redface.gif

Old CPU OC is in my sig, I haven't pushed the new one hard but uploading the CPUz SS here. Trying to send it out for validation crashes CPUz.
Quick 'n Sleazy OC on it, havent tried for more really. Was using my 12 year old Swiftech waterblock, but finally switched out to an XSPC Raystorm. Didn't really improve temps that much, but a little. Now I can use the swiftech for peltier cooling my 939s again.... thumb.gif

Hello,

can somebody post the pictures on what pads to short for an EVGA x58 141-BL-E757-TR Rev. 1.0

Tried to see if worked right of the box and unfortunately it needs the mod, all the pictures for that specific board model seemed to have expired, i've searched google, evga forums, kingping cooling forums.. with no luck,

thank you.

Now that the benchmarks are out for RX480, what's your take on the card? It seems like a really good 4GB card for $200, especially if you don't want to spend more money on an old platform like X58.

I am however concerned about the ability of the card to perform without CPU/PCI bottlenecks on X58. Any thoughts?

Yep, it seems to be a great little card for the price.

I don't think that there will be any bottleneck issues in most games as long as the CPU is clocked at 4-4.5ghz. PCIE 2.0 x16 is not going to be an issue for quite a while.
