I wonder is this a bios issue or a voltage regulation problem with the classified and 980x's because neither of you were really pushing the vcore =o/

Suppose voltage to 6 cores is pretty harsh on the boards..

..classy's have some of the tightest VR specs of any available i7 board too.. ...I would be hesitant to run them on anything less...and if the 6x core is taxing the classy to its limits, Id be downright scared of running that CPU on any current mobo with a high vcore.

* I wonder if its a problem with the silicon being "too good" ...sorta like the E8700's..where much is expected, but little is gained. Seems like those CPU's were doing much better better with cold, rather than voltage... but with the i7's CB'ing so low.. I cant help but wonder what kind of functional limits a monster CPU like this will have

Mine died while at -160 C and 1.75v. While that's not super crazy voltage for these chips, it's certainly well within the danger range.

Spec on the other hand shouldn't have had any trouble at that voltage. That's just robbery.

Aside from the obvious financial repercussions, the main thing that upsets me is that I had such a nice chip. Hadn't encountered a coldbug yet, and was clocking very nicely during the first few hours with all the latencies still on auto. All I did was Vantage with crossfired cards and my clocks were misleading. When you see hwbot posts with overclocks in the high 5's and even 6 Ghz range, that was just the 3D clocks. Those runs were significantly downclocked for the CPU tests using EVbots or some equivalent. I know some who were running 3D Benches at 6 GHz, but had to drop it to the 5.3 to 5.4 Ghz range to get through the CPU portions. I was clocking at the CPU range and not even trying higher for the 3D tests yet.

sigh..

Having to juggle 2-3x pots, whilst fiddling clocks on the ev-bot.. sounds like a serious workout.. ..you need an "igor"

I don't know how you guys keep from burning your v-reg's out every run with quads, I burn them out on dual cores every 2'nd or 3'rd run, if I'm lucky, and a dually isn't stressing them out anything like a quad will.

few pics for me... corrupted a copy of Win7 with a bunch of good SS's on it... ... then ran into some condensation problems after ~2hrs... oh well more fun later

Looking good. Did you re-cap that thing?

Nah.. i dunno if meh CPU/s have the FSB in them to warrant a re-cap of the mobo. Im gonna pick-up some eraser soon and get this prepped the right way before things get too serious. I missed out on the comp on the bot... my boss decided to go on vacation = FAIL for my benching time

*just got 351 celly in the saddle on my 975x.. shooting for top5 in all bot benchies wiff it ...I got some nice RAMz for this mobo..yess.

Unlucky man. Such a shame, atleast you got an awesome 478 board tho

Look what the postman brought today




Looks like customs kicked the crap out of it Can't really see in the pics but that whole side is covered in big dirty dents Shouldn't effect performance but I'm not happy...
