Alright, a couple of (pictureless) updates.
1) Due to the heat the vreg puts out, I've ordered the Bitspower waterblock set for this board, so stay tuned for an update of the loop
2) I'm dialling in my 24/7 oc somewhere around 3.9GHz with the RAM at 1628 7-8-7-20 and the bclk at 206. The 20 multi doesn't like me so far. I'm running on 1.325v in bios, which gives me up to 1.36v under load (EVGA's anti-vdroop actually gives you more juice when you need it instead of less :biggrin
My current settings pass 20 runs of LinX (Linpack testing)
I'm now testing the RAM with Memtest to see how it does.
Once that happens, I'm going to concentrate on tweaking the voltages down (CPU voltage has bottomed out at 1.325v *bios*, anything lower and it crashes around 15 passes of LinX) I'll tweak each voltage down as low as I can and hopefully that will help me with temps. I'm also going to try bumping bclk bit by bit to see if I can't squeeze things up to the magical 4GHz barrier.
