Just finishing my new build. Running smooth and stable and started OC the rig. Now at http://www.3dmark.com/fs/3029075 ~11000. It seems quite low for more or less standard?

CPU OC at 4,1 Mhz and GPU at 1325.

I don't play games 24/7, but a 2-3 hr session of Crysis 3 has no problems at 1518 / 8196. The core speed averages 1505-ish in reality.

Strange that mine would be low. I ran FS at 1531/4034 and got 16056 in the graphics sub-score; according to precision the core stayed at 1531 solid through-out.

Or was that a mis-quote? tongue.gif

This will save a little bit on copper, plus with water going through the block, the rubber will be cooled ever so slightly and so would the chokes. The rubber would absorb all the vibration from the coils?

1/8" thick rubber directly buried into the copper in its own cut out compartment. Make it the same width and length of the chokes, apply a "slightly" amount of vibration dampening pressure and there you go. lol, I wonder if I can get EK to cut me up one custom like?

But wouldn't the coil inside the housing still vibrate against the insides?

Some people have even taken to putting some hot glue on the chokes to damper them a bit and then reapplying the housing.

of course your CPU score is very low, even my 3770k eats your 5960x at oc
You might check your active core's while benching.
Seems like there are only 4 active according to your score.
When checked regardless of the results - remove all OC, set default settings in bios and test again and check your physics score

Yes of course, which is why I said "Taming" the coil whine. There is no stopping it completely with todays tech, only containing like the millions of 120hz computer monitors do... See this image below? That is of a common 120hz LG panel using an overclocking board. This Choke you see in the pic has a large piece of rubber directly attached to it, put there to "absorb" all the vibration which causes users to hear coil whine. Without that rubber block there on bright screens at 120hz or more users with sensitive ears will hear a high pitched coil whine. It is a very common problem...



I am not sure if the block itself, since it is metal can contain coil whine, but I know for fact rubber dampening can, even the slightest amount of a rubber above the chokes could contain all of it.

Oops ;-( I will go back to all default. What do you mean by CPO very low, the OC? I do not m,ind the OC more, but like to remain the rig pretty silent. I have done 4,5 MHz, but then I need to run a pretty high noise fan profile.

I see physics indeed much much hiher (double more or less). Is that why you conclude that I have only 4 cores? How can that be, I see al my cores working in AI Suite when doing Photoshop work (as I write It is running 8 cores on 60% at 54C and quite silent).

hey guys i'm pretty new to GPU overclocking but do have some experience. I'm getting my new 980 in tomorrow and plan to do some mild overclocking. I went with the Zotac reference edition since that's what I was able to find in stock. Here's my questions...

1. I will most likely be using MSI Afterburner for the OC, what numbers should I start at when overclocking in regards to the voltage, core clock & memory clock?
2. I see most of you are running 3dMark Firestrike, is this free to download? If so where can I download it from? I've been browsing the internet and it seems like it must be purchased.

Thanks,

There is nothing wrong to OC. I dont own a Haswell-E but i read some people having problems changing minimal OC settings and their system will be unstable.
Check fire strike with default settings and see if it is better.

E: you should ask in the correct forums about CPU's smile.gif

That's about where my SC's stock settings land me.

I was thinking your Heaven score was low, but now I can't remember what I got on it with 1530MHz. I guess I was expecting more from something like 1575/8316 and +100MHz more on your 4790k, but really probably just a frame or two at best now that I did some maths.

Ahh ok, I'm being a bit paranoid about my scores. I think some of the difference could be from me using Windows 8?

It is weird though that I get 1 fps less in Heaven with 1530/4158 than with the core at 1575 but precision does report a solid 1575 all the way through. Perhaps regardless of what's being reported I'm still not seeing performance beyond 1540 ish.
