How does this sound?
I lapped my Core i7 (THAT WAS SCARY!) and my TRUE last night. It took me 4 hours to do both but was really worth it! I was so paranoid about the CPU but it was fairly easy to do and chip working fine and cooler now to boot.
Temps did go down, I would say 2-3c at idle and 6-8c at full load.
Well, been messing with the overclocking and think I found a setting I really like, actually at this overclock it is completely stable and temps are around stock (as are voltages!). Think this is the best compromise between speed and heat I could come up with. I may try turbo later with 20 CPU Ratio and BCLK 190 so I will be running at 4.0 Ghz with this
CPU Ratio: 19
QPI LINK: 7218
CPU Voltage: 1.25
That is 3.8 Ghz near stock temps and voltages. I love it!
Everything else at auto, speedstep and turbo off. I am also running my OCZ Platinum DDR3 1600 at 7-7-7-24 timings with this. Passed 5 passed of Intel Burn Test with similar temps to stock and a 3dmark06 run. I REALLY love these Core i7's!
Funny thing is, I found a forum write up after I dialed these in with a guy that owns the P6T (regular) with the same exact settings, he also has the same RAM was kind of freaky! Found it at the OCZ forums
He runs his DRAM at 1.64 though, mine is at 1.66.Edited by ricsim78 - 2/28/09 at 11:14am
