I'd also like to make note, I LOVE the fact that you broke 10k with the 8800GT! It's making me want my new card to arrive even more now!
No. I unfortunately never did hit the magic number 3. I believe it was my motherboard though. The Abit AN8 was a rock solid stable board, but I think I was just hitting it's limits of 300 on the FSB. I tried almost the max voltage on my NB, I tried 1.4 on the vCore(which I knew wasn't needed because I've seen those CCBBE's hitting 3.0 with stock voltages), lowered my HT link all the way to 1x, had my RAM divider set all the way to 166MHz, everything. The board just would not POST past 305MHz.

As for the 8800GT. Hah, yeah. I ran benchmark after benchmark with that baby until I broke 10k. For some reason XP would cause my card to crash at 700MHz with my Abit AN8 and my Gigabyte DS3L with my quad so I left it at 675MHz.

I've ran it at 700MHz on this Vista rig and my DK LP with no problem and got 13.6k with Vista . I think it was my POS Gigabyte DS3L though when I got my quad. Sorry, but when a mobo takes 4 tries to boot up windows on EVERYTHING STOCK, it's a POS IMO.

See, this is where I get slightly confused. I thought the CCBBE's were easy to get to 3.0GHz, but they usually required more volts (almost 1.50 in some cases)...whereas the newer bin chips (such as the LCBQE and LCB9E), were more notorious for hitting higher clocks on stock volts. I could be completely wrong on that since I've only tinkered with LCBxE chips myself.....and evidentally my chip is a "golden" chip.

And I'd have to agree with you on the Gigabyte board woes. If it takes 4 tries just to POST at stock settings, then yeah something's amiss. From what I read, you made the right choice going with the DFI over the Gigabyte .

Now I have a WHQL - FM Approved video card driver. However, I still only get 8950 and cannot make the results public. (It shows that I have a "generic VGA" and no RAM installed. In contact with Finland still on the issue.)

Good call on dropping the Gigabyte. Mine will only post up to 254 FSB no matter what any other setting is. Was it always like that? Perhaps you can look into RMAing the sucker?

In another thread some guy had his CCBBE running 3.0 at stock 1.35v. I asked him how he was doing it(I had mine running at 1.425 at the time) and he explained it to me(all his settings and what not). I eventually just said to hell with it, threw the vCore down to 1.35 and it booted, stable too.

Yeah it was. It did that dead stock when i first got it but thought "whatever". I could boot up 333MHz easily, but the vDroop was so bad it was pissing me off. The stock 1.275v was being reported as 1.23 in Speedfan and in the BIOS. Don't have that problem with the LanParty.

You know, I haven't decided if I want to sell it to someone on here(hopefully they'll have a better time with it), or if I should just RMA it and sell the new board or get a refund or what ever. Only problem is that my box and all the cables and whatnot are back home in Illinois. I'm in Cali right now.

It's all a gamble, this stepping business. No real guarantees in this game.

@ pioneerisloud : yes u can be bought that easily *waves a piece of porterhouse steak* LOL

did txtmstrjoe just call himself papa scorpion... -.-"

@ twistedboi. yeah i have a ccbbe 0617fpmw.. supposed to be one of the best to break 3 but it wouldnt. ESPECIALLY at stock voltages. i have my opty at 1.4625 vcore to have it at 2943MHz. really depressing but oh well. still a great oc either way.

yeah lots of people said CCBBE were easy to get to 3. but ever since i got mine, i havent seen many ppl break 3 with it. if i win the club case management contest. im going to give it another shot with my opty and fx-60. see if i can pull any higher and seeing if DFI really is that good =P sux that i would need to learn that bios. maybe could get some help form a friend. he has the higher end dfi 939 board. supposidely the one being offered as a reward is 1 lower. *shrugs* but either way its a dfi and will see if it proves its greatness if i can have a chance at playing with one...

i dont have a cooler thats good enough to cool my chip so this is probably the wall i have to settle at. unless i can get the money to get a TRUE and a nice fan, i dont think i can go any higher. average investment for a TRUE is like.. 65 - 75 bux right? 55 for heatsink, 10 for fan... 5-10 for shipping. *sigh* wonder if a true is really worth it too bad no one has a hyper tx2 and a true to compare haha

*edit*

lol maybe i should try just dropping it to 1.35 and tryin to get 3.0 rofl. i think i have tried it b4 tho

can u do it the otehr way around? i wanna play with a TRUE never seen one IRL b4...

*edit*

what i really want to do is get some thermalright chipset/mosfet heatsinks and replace the heatpipe system on teh a8n32-sli and get a true. how well u think that would do?

yeah lots of people said CCBBE were easy to get to 3. but ever since i got mine, i havent seen many ppl break 3 with it. if i win the club case management contest. im going to give it another shot with my opty and fx-60. see if i can pull any higher and seeing if DFI really is that good =P sux that i would need to learn that bios. maybe could get some help form a friend. he has the higher end dfi 939 board. supposidely the one being offered as a reward is 1 lower. *shrugs* but either way its a dfi and will see if it proves its greatness if i can have a chance at playing with one...

i dont have a cooler thats good enough to cool my chip so this is probably the wall i have to settle at. unless i can get the money to get a TRUE and a nice fan, i dont think i can go any higher. average investment for a TRUE is like.. 65 - 75 bux right? 55 for heatsink, 10 for fan... 5-10 for shipping. *sigh* wonder if a true is really worth it too bad no one has a hyper tx2 and a true to compare haha

*edit*

lol maybe i should try just dropping it to 1.35 and tryin to get 3.0 rofl. i think i have tried it b4 tho
Hell, I still haven't figured out what half the settings do in my quad's BIOS. I see FSB? I raise it. CPU VTT? Raise it if needed. NB voltage? Raise it if needed, lol. OC'ing an Intel is a whole different beast than an AMD. But DFI boards are the shizzam. I'm loving this one.

Yeah, I payed around $105 for my TRUE but it was with ArctiClean and next day delivery, so yeah, around 75 bucks. Just be wary though, the clips it comes with to hold the fan on are pieces of crap. I couldn't figure them out so my fan is being held on by fan wire tied together.

I just spoke to my Ultra 120 Extreme; she does not like being referred to by that ridiculous nickname.

To be honest with you, I've got reasons to not recommend it, or any other tower-style heatsink for that matter (which blow their air parallel to the motherboard plane). Unless you take special steps to cool the components surrounding the CPU socket, I think there's a flaw in the fundamental design of most tower-style HSFs which may lead to premature motherboard failure.

(Free plug time) Check out the OCN blog section; my sig has a link to mine. Check out the entry on Addressing Compromises in Design for more details.

I need a Sub-Zero in my bedroom. It's too dang hot to sleep!
