I know it is not the last model in the market but I guess it has quality components. And it is not for the crazy prices that I'm seeing for X99....lastly.
Let's see how run my 5960X

Cannot be happier. Just started to play with X99-S and 5960X.... More options than I can understand. Currently 4,6Ghz@1,20v tomorrow I wil see how far can we go with this "J batch". :-)

Bye bye Broadwell !!! Happy to chose this old Haswell :-)

I ordered a 5820K and it should be here Monday. I hope it clocks like your 5960X!

Thanks! Hopefully... just have to learn to overclock the thing. Lol its probably a bit different then a 3770K.

Still playing....rolleyes.gif

Boot 5960X @ 4,70 Ghz and 1,20v.... but BSOD after load the processor, I did not tried to increase vcore more. Great at 4,6. Anyway due to my configuration I should not overclock it too much, my small Cooltek W2 case, my Scythe Kotetsu heatsink and spanishe weather ( 30ºC in my room right now). Do not help at all. biggrin.gif

Anyway I feel I got a very good sample. I will think later if I will improve my cooling system...I want silence and small factor. So I'm setting it @4Ghz thumb.gif

Ahh, Do you think the Intel Protection Tunning plan is worth it? I'm scared to fry the processor after X99 legends...

Given that you have an Asus X99 board, I'd recommend the Intel plan.

Give this thread a good read:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1561131/5960x-dead

What was the voltage at 4.6 Ghz? You may have gotten a pretty amazing chip.

Some quick tips:
  • Raise the VCCIN / VRIN to 0.6V above Vcore
  • Don't try to OC the uncore before overclocking the core
  • When overclocking the uncore after, slowly bump the VRing up

Watch temperatures as well and for high overclocks, you will likely want some VRM cooling.

The latest few batches seem to be doing quite well. 4.6 GHz on water for 24-7, once reserved for the higher end CPUs, seems to be getting more common. 4.7 Ghz is still pretty rare though.

I think that the 22nm process is maturing quite well. There have been quite a few "good" 4790Ks as well that can clock quite well.

I too plan on the Intel plan just in case. I hope so.. i have plenty of cooling power so no worries there (3X560, 2XD5 and 12 EK FF4's). Ill need to search for a X99 overclocking guide before hand.
