wow that's sick, the best I have done so far with some mfr is 3250 cl12 so I have a long way to go.

hey I need an opinion. I spent so much on this setup which I actually feel dumb about but the 4000 c19 kit was like $39 more. I was trying to save $40 but that seems dumb after spending so much. Should I try and get the 4000 or see how these clock first.

Yeah try the 4000 kit first. seen some peps nice results on those trident Z rams.

wow that's an amazing sight to see, cl16 is great also. Should score amazing in xtu also. well right now I have the 3866 and the 4000 is $39 more. I guess I should try the 3866 first just in case they clock nice. It's really the first high end kit I ever bought.

Help me out here guys. What are the square stuff in the center of the pick, under the heat sinks, there are 6 in a column then 4 more in a row. When I'm stress testing my OC , they get hot, like can't tuch it hot, (everything works fine and the MB temperature sensor show 28c) What are them and are they ok to be hot under load ?

6600k on 4550 Mhz with 1.35 vcore cpu max temp are 71c. I have water cooling.

post #49 of 144
those are inductors (some people call them chokes), they should get warm.

With Maximus VII Hero I'm now trying to influence the performance of the CPU to the BIOS version. Everything takes place under the same conditions in terms of temperature measurement settings of CPU and BIOS settings. I set the processor to 4.5 GHz / 4.5 GHz core frequency and cache to 1.3V. OS was Windows 7 SP1 64-bit. Graphics just out of curiosity GTX 980T Poseidon.
For testing, I tried 3 BIOS versions. 0401, 0802, and the latest BIOS 1,001 [/ b]
I was interested in performance SuperPi 32M, CINEBENCH R11.5, 3D Mark06 CPU performance, 3D Mark11 Performance and 3D Mark Firestrike. Older tests such as SuperPi because I wanted to smile.gif
I. BIOS 0401
Generally BIOS showed OK, the voltage on the CPU LLC5 perfectly kept, also stability seemed very good even at a voltage of 1.3V.

Superpi 32M = 7m 0.685s
22752344605_0312f8575f_z.jpg

3D Mark 06 CPU = 9 671p
22129576324_280912cb80_z.jpg

3D Mark11 P = 20 360b, physics=13 314p
22131222103_a3255af941_z.jpg

3D Mark Firestrike = 16 262p, physics = 14 587p
22726325266_a76182f62b_z.jpg

Cinebench R11.5 = 10.48p
22752344825_823b782196_z.jpg

II. BIOS 0802
The BIOS convinced me more balanced performance across all tests, but stability was unpredictable, with 1.3V in SuperPi frozed despite several attempts (I set after 1.345V). Despite a slight decrease in performance CPU 3D06 and in SuperPi - differences are acceptable, other benchmarks in turn are noticeably better in terms of score. However, the stability of pity ... It takes more stress on the same settings than the previous case. Now therefore, not this BIOS

Superpi 32M = 7m 1.278s
22131220823_d383004fd3_z.jpg

3D Mark 06 CPU test = 9522p
22763548271_f39d61f540_z.jpg

3D Mark11 Performance = 20 608p, physics = 13 312p
22738802032_b4468c2b23_z.jpg

3D Mark Firestrike = 16 297p, physics=14 686p
22752344375_128f4e7afd_z.jpg

Cinebench R11.5 = 10.93b
22131220913_ee86acbd98_z.jpg

III. BIOS 1001
The BIOS me a little disappointed, I forgot to measure a lower voltage, but what Im still to testing, 1.3V holds now. This is positive. Although the behavior of PC stability and performance is not bad, I'm sorry that SuperPi is much worse and I tested it several times, even after restarting the PC with the same result within tenths of a second.

Superpi 32M = 7m 4.648s
22752342475_e622eef59a_z.jpg

3D Mark 06 CPU test=9484p
22564426730_a332377e86_z.jpg

3D Mark11 Performance=20 655p, physics=13 334p
22131220703_538c4c27d0_z.jpg

3D Mark Firestrike=16 286b, physics=14 656p
22726323546_f8f8feba74_z.jpg

Cinebench R11.5 = 10.91p
22738800282_71a89df0e8_z.jpg

There is overview table with the results.
22730122706_19b5cb1a33_z.jpg

Repeatedly measuring the current I reached there with the last BOSS 10.93 points in R11.5 and another test of SuperPi is 7m 3.478s and for 3D06 9488points per CPU. Thus, I would recommend for the average user to choose between BIOS 0401 and 1001 BIOS 0802 to avoid. On the same frequencies requires a higher voltage even when served on average the best results, at the cost of "instability" of the same strain is not worth it. If you like SuperPi smile.gif, then 0401 is your choice. Conversely, if the test elderly hot food, will be better in 1001, which is better in newer tests.
