So, since I have already made one OC announcement on my side, I guess I can keep updating.

Stable NB of 2800 with the before listed RAM Timings.
Currently testing a 3.8GHz CPU Overclock, will report back once I finish stability testing.

Going to work on some stability testing on the GPU's next, then I'll do some benchmarks and give you guys some numbers. I still have a couple days before the SSD's get here.

Again, many thanks to Mastiff. Even if I am starting to understand it, I couldn't have done it without you help bro!

The way that it works is that there are upto 9000 possible Chiops that can come from a given wafer. Some are defective and some don't even work at all. From what I've learned the Closer to the center of the wafer the better the chips CPU-NB.... Which Means better OCing. Now the further from the center of the wafer that the Die is cut, the more possible defects any given die will have and the more leakage there is as far as heat. BUT there are times that higher Die Cut Numbers can yield a chip that will clock better but ONLY under extreme cooling measures... (i.e. Ln2, Lhe & D.Ice)

But you are correct Marc in the fact that it does seem like there is a similarity of OCing potential in the batch Date... Why that is I'm not quite sure... I still think that the closer one chips Die Cut Number is to 90001 on the PhenomII CPU's, the better they will clock under typical Conditions...

Every chip is different.

Done and done! Done plenty of stability tests. Time to see what this thing will do. What do you guys suggest for some Benchmarks?

I would not benchmark until at least 4.0ghz. Put the cpu volts up to 1.5v and see if it is stable. If it is, lower it one notch. I can tall you, you will get maybe 5500 cpu points in 3dmark06 at your current clock.

just got my 965 c3 today ,
30 mins after it arrived it was in my rig under phase ready for tomorrow, im hoping that it will fair better than my 955 c2 which only went to 4.24 even though it looked a promising chip as it had a fairly low sn: 90062, saying that the sn: on the 965 is fairly high @ 90409 so it will be interesting to see how it fairs,
i still think the bios needs to mature a bit more before we see the full potential of this board, im currently running the official 1.8 bios and have seen little to no improvement over the official 1.6 bios so far, apart from that i love this board.

Hi guys!!!

"I had a dream" A dream about computer store (on-line would be the best) that I could order everything what I wanted and they wouldn't have told me that: "sorry, we don't have it in stock... please call us in 2 weeks. Maybe we will have it then "

I assume the majority of members of this thread come from USA - (that makes things easier for ya!)

Unfortunatelly, there is not such comfortable situation in Poland as at your place.

Nevertheless, I have decided to invest a little bit more (oh! well ... my "baby" needs some new toys ) in my "baby" and I would like to hear your opinion before I order some parts.

So, here is a list:

Scythe Kaze Maru 140mm Case Fan -->
http://www.scythe-eu.com/en/products...aru-140mm.html but it has to be this model --> SY1425SL12H (1900rpm version)

(I know it will be damn loud but what I care most is efficiency - don't hear this noise wearing my headphones

Super Silent Fan 14
http://www.aabcooling.com/super_sile...w/X3BhZ2U9Mg==

I have decided to put OCZ Freeze Extreme Thermal Conductivity Compound -->
http://www.ocztechnology.com/product...ivity_compound

instead of Arctic Silver 5 ... I would like to try this TX-3 but I can't find it anywhere in any computer store in Poland and it would be too expensive to order it ( I assume) from other country (shipment cost etc.).

And last but not least...sth like this --> Fan Control PRO AK-FC-03

http://www.akasa.co.uk/update.php?tp...model=AK-FC-03

Ok! soo... What do you think about it? (once again - efficiency is for me more important than noise level Any other alternatives?

I would be very grateful if you could say a word (or two) or share with me your experience about a case cooling.

I think that it would be best if you took this post to the Air Cooling Section of OCN. They would most likely be more accurate with their knowledge over there. Not that we don't know but we want to make sure that you are taking care of a best as possible...

Not yet. I need some more support to buy it. I am actually waiting for someone to buy my 965 first or at least get a buyer so i do not feel so bad about buying the 955.
