I can run this 3.9G 1.337V without a glitch, 4GHz and I then I need +70mV on Vcore, +15mV on SoC. I wonder how solid is the idea of a relation between Vcore, VSoC and MHz ?
Also having just one rank attached to the IMC gets me to load windows at the 123/126 refclk ( bios post is like 3 secs ) but also limits my OC. Thing is hard to deal with, I still have hope that it may get a lil better with a good bios update.
What is your fav board ( less buggy ) so far ?
Taichi was preety solid once you figure out to set refclock first. K7 seems solid to. Benching wise neither can compete with the C6H it just has a way way more mature bios.
For 24/7 other than the gigas rather alarming vrm temps and taichis wifi/bt device drop all are pretty solid @ 120 ref clock..
I would say those would be the 3 way shoot out ref clock boards.
Prime pro gaming 5 and biostar gt7 would be the 3 way mainstream non ref clock shoot out boards.
I would include msi but until an agesa unlocks some magical ref clock for it.....or they drop price by 100 to fit in the "mainstream contendors" neither likely to happen...they are in a bracket of there own.
I don't know what happened to review sites in the past 5 years...they compare vgas and cpus performance vs price then motherboards they completely forget this.
In that category alone is where i have a huge beef with the titanium.
It can not physically overcome the ability to ref clock and actually lower subtimings...agesa forbids it...you can not modify with a bios what you are not allowed acess to.
That shoves it into mainstream performance...with $100 more price tag than the second most expensive...Edited by chew* - 5/3/17 at 11:58am
