Nice! That will be interesting to see how well that the system performs with Quad Fire!

Here is a link to IntelBurnTest v2.4 for anyone that is interested in trying it out.

@ Mastiffman -- I will be trying the adjusting one thing at a time and see what effect it has on it, but I'm not so sure it's always voltage. Other things running in the background are affecting it, I'm sure. But it does show some consistency if I don't do anything else while it's running.

Will keep you posted.

Oh, I'm sorry to get confused! I thought that you meant that all you did was change the voltages and it was better but being that you changed multiple Volts that you didn't know which one made the diff. oops! lol

It's okay... We forgive you! LOL But look at the reast of the OP! I look at it today and it's nice and neat and not Cluttered like some "other" threads that I've seen....

EDIT: I'm gonna try to put the "Wheeee" Man back in my Sig now...

EDIT 2: It worked! Now I match you guys again! LOL- I didn't have enough room with my CPU Proof Crap in there and my club tags that are links....

From previous testing, I knew what was a stable voltage for different speeds, but it seemed that some of those voltages were not providing the best performance. I had bumped some speeds up, set the voltages, and noticed the GFlops was lower than a lower system clock, seemed odd, so I tried bumping all of the voltages one click, and speeds increased, or so it seemed.

Well, I guess what I was getting at is that a minimal voltage for an overclock may be stable, but it may not be the best voltage for performance, if that makes sense.

I'm starting to realize that I have been able to be stable (never crashing no matter what I'm doing), but maybe not necessarily the best performance from it.

Does anyone know of a good program to test overall system speeds, etc... this would be helpful to see if a bit more volts provides better system performance.
Obviously we overclock for better system performance, and it would be good to see if different voltages affect the system performance, even if it is stable at lower voltages.

I apologize to cut in mid discussion (as I am following the current convo just don't have any valid input) but I had a quick Q about NB temps. I'm hitting 92C on load and wondered if anyone else has experience this and if so how did you remedy it.

Thanks, and once again, sorry to cut into the conversation.

No problem to cut in, btw.

That is way too high. It seems there have been a recent batch of boards that have NB temp issues.

MSI says, "The max safe temp is 80*c, but it should be kept under 70*c."

I would strongly suggest one of two things:

Either, pull the factory 'all-in-one' heatsink, and clean off the thermal goo, and re-apply a good TIM (that has helped a lot of us drop temps as much as 20+*c), then re-seat the heatsink, making sure it is seated well on the NB, OR

RMA it.

So wait this is a production issue thats cropped up?

Damn aqua...im sure those three 4870's have to play a part on it somehow but thats just bad

@ Rewind

Dude, you have got some f***ed up Avatars! I love this one!

I'd rep you for it, but that's frowned upon! You Da' Man!!

Marc

EDIT: On a side note, I'm starting to get the notion of what will be stable, just by the first few runs of IntelBurn, by guaging the speed. Again, I'll keep us posted, this could help eliminate a lot of time multi-testing for stability

And btw, most instabilities show up within the first 10 runs on IntelBurn, some come later, but probably 90%+ are within the first 10. So if you are going to be increasing the speed of something and are doing interim testing, 10 is a good gauge to move on. When the final speed is hit, then run 25+ to be sure.
