I never have to. When I first load win7 I turn all user account controls off so none of that crap appears.

Binning isn't going to be a cost effective process for me unfortunately. Even if I can sell a chip for as much as I can buy one, say £200, I will be taking a £20-£30 hit each time. This is because the only way I will be able to sell them is at an online auction site. Most of which take a 10% cut from every sale. Then theres postage on top of that as well. £10 a pop I could swallow but £20-£30 is just too much.

Thanks for the advice anyway Borandi but it would seem I'm just going to have to keep my eyes open for a good one. I've been speaking to Khalam here on the forums who may have one for me but as some of you may know he has far more important things to deal with at the moment.

With regards to my current chip. Its currently at 5.1Ghz @ 1.54v. I could probaly get a few extra mhz out of it but I've only just got it stable where it is now. 1.6v is all I really want to put through a chip at the moment but I have gone above this just to see if I can get in to windows with 5.2ghz. So far I haven't managed to.

At 5.1Ghz @ 1.53v it "was" comlpletely stable and just touched 80 degrees after an hour of Prime. Unfortunately now I have started getting the odd RAM related BSOD while the system is idling. Currently experimenting with some different voltages to rectify the issue. Whats annoying is that it is Prime Small fft and blend stable and memtest runs fine for 15mins without issue. Do you think I should run memtest for longer or maybe try windows mem checker? At the moment though, after trying a few different things, I have rasied the vcore to 1.54 which seems to have done the trick. Would have been nice to be able to keep it at 1.53 but hey, Its only for benching and not 24/7.

Should you still need to do this with UAC disabled?

The difference is Jokah that when we run benchmarks competitively, we're not looking for 24/7 stability. We're looking for enough stability to run the benchmark. The benefit of Sandy Bridge is that it often has a severe drop of point where it'll work fine at one speed and then not at all the next. e.g. My 2600K does 5300 MHz when only 2 cores are enabled (just, sometimes it still BSODs through a bench), and 5200 MHz when all 6 cores are. My i7-3960 does 5125 MHz with all cores enabled - I've not tried it in single/dual core mode yet.

With binning, that's the price you pay - you're never going to get 100% of your money back. If you're able to sell them on a website like OCN, then obviously you don't have to lose ebay fees or whatnot. But that's the price - it's a case of seeing how many chips you can go through for twice the price of one chip. You might end up with a golden CPU, you may end up with crap (depends if you're testing them properly).

With Memory, there's one more value you have to adjust the VTT (I think) to 1.4V or so if I remember correctly (I've not benched my SB in a while, so don't quote me on that). It may be more stable then. Personally as long as I can hit a good XMP (e.g. 2400 C9) I tend to leave it there for the big 3D benchmarks unless I have time to spare fiddling about with it.

If im not mistaken the VTT is the VCCIO on my board. Its default is 1.1v. I have run it up to 1.2v while trying to push my mem but I am currently unsure what a safe max is. My memory is rated at 1866mhz @ 1.5v and it is currently at 2143 (I think) @ 1.65v with looser timings. VVCIO @ 1.7250. So you reckon I may be safe to go up to 1.4v? What about safe DRAM volts?

I hear what you say about running beyond stabilty. My 7970 is right on the edge while running benchmarks. Its no way OCCT or game stable at 1320 core.

Thanks for your help so far. +1

VCC I/O for SB should not need to exceed 1.09v set or 1.1v real no matter the mem clock, IC type or mem speed/latency... or amount.

Well I best go turn that down right away!
