Hi,
I was thinking of building a 128GB rig with the 6950x but after some online reading I opted for 64GB. It turned out some mobos might not support 16GB dimms even after a bios update. I'm running the 6950x on a gigabyte x99-ud4 at 4.2GHz, the temps are 64-70C.

It's a bloody great setup. It's what I'm running at the moment. Just like c0zm0 it seems like 4.2ghz is the sweet spot for this chip, I've found the same.

Depending on what kind of RAM speeds you wanna run, you'll notice different vCore results. Below you can see my stable OC with RAM @ ~2300mhz.

thanks mate! So, you are running the 3466 rated ram at 2300? Is it 1T or 2T?
