Well I'm not sure about the overclockability of Skulltrail platform, but I can tell you that according to Microsoft, it's CPU limitations are for "Physical CPUs". You only have 2 physical CPUs although I'm sure XP won't take advantage of them very well (although I'm not sure anything else will right now either).

Congrats on that, I'd love to put one together to see how it folds

BIOS OC settings screenshot. Can adjust multiplier, voltage, clockspeed.

I tried a process multiplier of 10 and frequencey 400 and it wouldnt get video.. I didnt mess with the voltages at that point. Are those settings you would suggest or have used?

By the way, this is by far the most active and responsive forum I have ever joined.. I cant believe how many replies I gotten already! Thank you guys VERY Much!

I am hopeful that somebody is running at 4.0 happily!

I should be able to put a pic of tomorrow.. This system has 24 SATA 500GB drives running raid 5 on a pair of PCI-E RAID controllers... She will be a screamer!

Wait Why arent you running 64bit?!

The problem you're going to have is very few people here have experience with the skulltrail. There just isn't alot of information out there on it alone, much less how it reacts with different processors at different settings. It doesn't look like you have a whole lot of tweaking options in that bios.

Hmm... to get it up to 4.0 you'd definately have to raise the voltage I would imagine. But go slow. Don't take such a big jump. Start by small steps. 5 at a time, maybe 10. Taking a big jump doesn't help you pinpoint what the problem is.

I don't have this mb myself, so I really can't give you much more information than I have. But stick with it and let me know how it works out.

Great question... The proprietary applications are not stable on 64 bit currently mostly due issues with the way Nvidia 64 bit driver and the applications interface with the Nvidia GPU...

We got it working today... We switched to the Quad core 3.2 Ghz Extremes, bumped the voltage up,, Got it stable at 4.0Ghz as well as 4.2Ghz.. The max core voltage was at 1.5V. CPU temps are between 53c and 63c at 75% CPU usage..The application seems to peg the first core but the rest are at about 75 per task manager. We ran it for some time. We did not have a chance to run other tests as we spent a good part of the day switching to water to be safe. We went with a thermaltake bigwater 760i as we could easily modify it to fit in a special slot on the back of our rack mount chassis.

After all the fun today, we are still not quite up to snuff which lends me to believe that we need to go beyond the CPU and speed up the bus/ram... I know we can bump the CPU's up further but I dont think that is the answer now. 4.0 is the sweet spot. We didnt bother to touch any other settings other than the Core stuff.
Any body have any suggestions or advice on speeding up the bus on this thing??

I will get pics next week for those that have asked.. I'm actually really happy with the way it turned out. We are still waiting on some 45 degree water fittings for the CPU blocks so we can have enough clearence for the cooler which mounts above the I/O panel in the rear of the chassis so I figured pics of the completed unit would be best..

do have good cpu and north bridge cooling if not get it some then start overclocking

looking good, Slief, but with those cpu's and water, there's a lot of headroom left. Please go ot the top of the page and fill out your coplete specs in USERCP. Until that's complete, we're just seeing a snapshot of your system.
