The 775 mounting on the GTZ will, work, but it's not ideal. I used a GTZ with the 775 mounting on my mb. I bought the XT, but never got a chance to use it.

I was told by michelle@swiftech, that on the 10/30 they were supposed to get 1156 back plates, and by the following week they should have the GTZ kits available. I didn't want to wait, so I decided to buy the XT.

Ive been a bit disillusioned because i messed my overclock up but i will get it back to where i had it stable about 3.78 and then i`ll get help from here to take it further.

I looked at a picture of my cpu and you can see the number clearly



I think its a platinum chip

By the way, i checked my cpu for contact marks from the pins because Gigabyte have been using those crappy Foxconn sockets and lucky for me i think every contact has the tell tale indentations from the pins scoring the surface.


It looks to me like all the contacts have scores but i couldnt find my magnifying glass so i had to take some pix but if you have any criticisms please feel free

I don't know about that, it says 31 at the end. 00 would be 'ideal' as that's the center of the wafer. 31 is pretty close to the center, though.

I'm considering a Gigabyte P55M-UD4 and according to reviews (like this one from Bit-tech) the 21x multi is not available through manual selection.

Now this example on XS is using 21x multi, but it appears as if Turbo was left on auto...

It looks as if 21x is manually available on Maximus III Gene (Elite Bstrds), so now I'm just thoroughly confused on a few levels

I'm thinking whichever board I could actually use the 21x multiplier would be better/easier, plus I've also read uneven multipliers tend to be more stable.
Again I'm just basing this off of countless reviews I've read, you guys actually have the hardware, so I'd be very interested to hear from you
With Gigabyte, you leave Turbo @ AUTO but turn off the power saving stuff like C1E, etc, & it applies the 21x multi.

In the latest BIOS for my UD3R, they changed it so now you can "set" the 21x multi (or 22x for i7 860), but you still need to leave Turbo @ AUTO (even though it does nothing).

Asus has the option for setting it manually, but really either way it accomplishes the same thing.



I re-attempted to get a higher OC after updating to the latest F3n BIOS, but nope.
To go from 4.16 GHz to 4.2 GHz & still be LinX stable requires a huge voltage increase, & even more vcore is needed to go past that.
Absolutely no point...it's quite apparent i've reached the max i can reasonably do on air.

nice overclock you got going there. One thing to keep in mind is that turbo mode should be left off at high base clocks. It might not be stable for those super pi runs and singlethreaded apps. you do the math.. 200x25 (turbo multi).. yes, it does equal 5,000 MHz. Not a good idea. Leave it off unless it is stable/working, sometimes it does not work at some base clocks

I think thats laudable n7 a really good overclock for a 750 and i like your temps where do you live, Canada?
And thanx for the tip about leaving turbo enabled, i started out with it on but disabled it for overclocking, so are you saying it needs eist and wot not enabled for it to work?

I assume you aren't going to try leaving Turbo on while OCing...that'll make things very difficult.

Basically, you go into CPU settings & disable all the power saving stuff, but leave Turbo @ AUTO. Turbo doesn't actually work when you do this, but what it does is force one multi higher.
So if you have an i5 750, it gives you 21x instead of 20x. For your i7 860, 22x.

If you have one of the newer BIOSes, it should give you the option for 21x (or for i7 860 22x) in the multiplier options to do that anyway.

But as i mentioned, you still need to leave Turbo @ AUTO under the CPU settings or it'll go back to 20x (or for i7 860 21x).


Here are my settings:



Advanced CPU Core Features section.
This is how you get one higher value multi, without Turbo actually being functional per say.
Note all the power savings stuff disabled.


Voltages


Memory


Memory timings

I meant leave it on auto obviously, ill give it another go tomorrow an see wot happenz, ive actually used the 22x multi option before and reached 4.1ghz but want sure about leaving turbo on auto.

I cant get the 22x multi without enabling turbo so im stuck on 21x but if you say there is another bios that will give me the 22x option i shud maybe flash the bios ? Wot do you think ?

Maybe it will help me get a higher overclock with a more up to date bios because like i said, before i got this board i had the ud3 and managed to get 4.1 with little effort so it must be the board and not the cpu. Also these gigabyte boards have a number of ways to update the bios so is there one is the best way to go ?

Ive updated the bios to F3 by downloading the new bios from the Gigabyte web site and extracted it to a folder on my desktop then i used @bios to update it right from inside windows 7, it couldnt be easier.

So ive started again and ive made a note of your settings n7 so i can refer to them as i go. I like to do it a little at a time because ive found that for some reason it works better that way, i know that some ppl get right down to it and descend from the heights but less experienced o/clkrs like myself are always better off doing the gradual climb. I just hope the 22x multi isnt as unstable as the 21x in my old bios.

I'm a little confused right now, it's 4am, I'm bored and decided to mess around with speedstep/turbo

I just booted and to my suprise, 24x multi on an i5?

Its dropped down to 23x right now but when under load goes back up to 24.. So what gives? I thought the max for i5 was 21x with turbo enabled?

EDIT: Eh.. nvm, googled and apparently it's normal with some boards. I've just never seen it before, I've had turbo etc enabled before though and it never happened..
