Lmao Tex, my Xeon says hi to your i5 (and more personally to your 950) biggrin.gif



http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2704567

But i understand your point, that's why i won't be taking my 2600k higher. Plenty enough for what i do with it, even if it's hogging a whole WCing loop (my Xeon is sharing with way too many things biggrin.gif)

4.6GHz is an impressive clock indeed even on nehalem tongue.gif
I'll possibly get hold on some X5560 (Does cost 100$ though) to play with. Low TDP with high multiplier biggrin.gif
I know from my experience low tdp chips although they can't handle very high current but they can OC really well. I've got my L5520 up to 3.6GHz on stock voltage stable biggrin.gif Either i got a super golden chip by luck of the hand or the L5520 is a OC'ing beast but i did get very far with 60C temps on 1.2V @ 3.6GHz (In this horrible climate and high altitude with bad paste + bad application i consider it VERY good)
Now what i do is run at 2.4GHz (2.53GHz turbo) and put 0.912V wink.gif Gigabyte's old LLC is working well but the set voltage is a bit far off (I set 0.935 or something i think, i BSOD during boot with 0.9V and now i know why but i've read the BSOD code and it is indeed not enough Vcore) but come to think of it in those days you didn't really have digital VRMs yet tongue.gif

I'll continue running p95 for 6 hours and see how stable it is. I knew it, i would have been much happier with a LGA1366 instead of a FX and i really am very happy and satisfied with 4 core HT thumb.gif

I might try cracking 4.05GHz (with 1.2V i'll wager) tomorrow (That's the limit for 225MHz BCLK and if i switch on turbo boost i might get 4275 or i might get a BSOD tongue.gif)

Oh heck, I been doing BOINC since 2005... and other distributed computing stuff before that..

I came first to OCN to see about overclocking my 950 and never left... changed BOINC team to OCN and been here ever since...

And Starbomba, man, he got some $$$$ to build what he has... I remember when he was wondering if a P4 was any good...

LOL!

biggrin.gif

I have 9 machines running BOINC right now and 10 more to assemble one of these days using stackable tech-stations to create my BOINC farm more or less... it's fun...

I really have no idea on how Intel bins their chips. The X5560 is essentially the same as my W3530, down to the same clock speed and transistor size, yet it has an extra QPI link (and it is faster to boot) and lower TDP (95W VS 130W). thinking.gif

I'm not too interested on the max overclock though. For everyday stuff i'll have it clocked at 4 GHz (212x19 @ 1.3v). When placed together with a 7950+7970, it generates too much heat, even if it is underwater. (i do plan to lap it soon). Also, the 4.6 GHz isn't stable. I did got it stable @ 4.5 GHz (215x21 @1.45v) but it ran way too hot for my liking, when my GPU's are working 100%.

I really loved how it undervolted. I could get 3 GHz off it (133x22) @ 0.985v and i could keep stock speeds without Turbo (2.8 GHz) @ 0.975v. Ran super cold as well.

My next upgrade would be a 980x/990x. That hexa has been calling me for quite a while, and only until now i can affford it. I really wish i could get a 3930k, but getting a x79 mobo which is a sidegrade or an upgrade to what i have, the CPU and 8 GB RAM more would be too much for my wallet.

These upgrades were from my own hard earned cash after a bit over a year of saving. I call it an early bday gift tongue.gif

What killed me the most were the GPU's. My P67 combo was roughly $325, and my x58 was around $400 (CPU+Mobo+RAM), but the cards were $750. Still, it's for BOINC (and a bit of side gaming biggrin.gif)

I do remember that as well. My rig was a E6400, and my 9400 GT back when i started BOINC ~3 years ago. Man, time sure flies.

Also, speaking of rich people... rolleyes.gif
