Doesn't seem logical though, considering it passed after a Blend run.

I run Maximum but it passed before... I think that I found out what it was... I wan't running my Dram (v) high enough... Went from 2.05-2.08v and things became "Alive" again! So that's what it was.. Started passing Every time. Clean and Consistent!

Mastiff,
Were you able to push the 955 beyond 4.2ghz? any higher validations?
Spec,
I am going to start calling you "MB" for Money bags. What about you? any higher validations on air with the newer 955? That start up time is nuts!
I got to 4.2.Ghz Much lower than on my 965 though. Other than that I've been just stablizing the below and get the Best Real World reflections that I can out of it.
4Ghz CPU
3Ghz CPU-NB
2.6Ghz HTLink
1600Mhz Cl6-6-6-18-24-1T

I'm going to move up the CPU again soon though!

I'm also trying to find out why Tessellation Isn't turned on in Windows7 RC? And how I can get it to work... Not to many people know to much about at this point...

Thread Starter 
I have some interesting news(well for me anyway) I decided to play a little with IBT now I was running my NB(not CPU-NB) @ 1.25v and noticed some irregularities in the Gflops. So I moved everything up one at a time to no avail. Then I decided wt heck and started to lower voltages one at a time. To my surprise when I lowered the NB volts it got closer so I dropped it to stock and wahla, consistency

Nice. I don't even know if mine will Boot up without having it at 1.30-1.32v... IDKY.... Maybe because of the CPU-NB being at 3ghz? Yes, No?

@ Mastiffman & Eclipse...

This is good stuff, seeing the speed (GFlops) is helping us to see irregularities, even with stable clocks. It seems to be providing some 'feedback' to us, which is helping tune our systems.

I'm thinking that the NB core volts may not have as much to do with our CPU-NB overclock as we originally thought. I run it a bit higher for my crossfire (those 4890's are power hungry), but could probably drop it a touch, as I was also adding some more into it for the higher CPU-NB clocks.

On a side note, I posted my 965 on Craigslist, thinking if I got it sold I'd grab one of these butt-kickin' C3 955's. I got a bite today, and just may be selling the chip right out of my system! I might be down a few days this week waiting for a replacement chip to come.

If anyone on this thread that sees this is interested in it, I will make it available to members first. I have lapped it, but do have the numbers written down from the IHS, and I have the box, HSF etc... just PM me.

Yeah , I don't know... I rebooted and lower BOTH of my NB Chipset and HTLink Voltages to 1.30v and I've been P95 Blending for the last 2 hours 26 minutes fine...
I don't know what exactly it is about this IBT program (other thn being able to see the Gflop Consistency of the System-Which I REALLY Like being that actually Gives you a NUMBER on how fast your system Actually is) but it seems like it may be a good combo to go with.

Priming and IBTing. NICE recommendation Marc! Did I give you rep yet? LOL

I would imagine you could go for all the amd records with your four 5870s.

Very nice Mastiff. I am holding off on getting the 955 c3 for another few weeks or so, so with you and mduclow testing the 955 I shall see if it is worth it. Now what is tessellation?

Never thought of the IBT to be used, will give this a try and see what happens.

Some of you may be interested in this little nugget of useless information.

When I lapped the CPU, you wouldn't believe the 'cup' on the chip. I had about 3mm of copper all around the edges showing, yet could still read writing on the IHS inside those edges! It was very cupped, and that would explain why the cpu wanted to pull out of the mobo socket every time I tried taking the waterblock off of it. The cupping was creating a vacuum seal with the block!

Tesselllation is basically an added feature of the new DX11 architecture that enhances the asthetics of 3D objects... It also fills the gaps and crevices between two objects as well as prevents overlaping of objects. Giving a more real effect to the viewing plane...

You should try it BUT please be aware that it produce MORE heat in CPU... By a good 3-4*C at least on my system... May produce more with a strictly air cooled system....

Buddy, you know you can't do (4) 5970's, right? The 5970 is a dual core 5870, like the 295 is a dual core 280 or 285 or whatever it is. So, (2) 5970's is quadfire.

Part of why they are like $600... each.
