I am having some troubles with my memory, it seems if I set the memory up manually I can't even get into widows but using auto with everything else the same boots right in and would run all day like that. This damn OCZ Flex memory may be good but it seems to hard on the northbridge from what I have been reading.
I will be playing with some settings there. I think just adding voltage don't seem to help. I was at 1.425 in bios and it seem to become more stable with less voltage. I see what some say you start to get a sense for when your get close to stable now. I can just tell the way its booting into windows and the way it acts while working in windows, I am damn close. I just get a error right away in prime no crashes the thing like said would run all day. Prime don't BSOD my machine it just get a error in prime on the 2nd core after a few minutes Temps are in Real temp runing a bit over 60 now but I have a Feeling that I have way to much voltage on the Cpu yet and when I find the right setting that's giving me trouble this thing will take off and clock up real nice.
I did get in widows one time at 500MHZ FSB too. I had there at 5ghz!! But there was just no stability. Using the same settings that got me into windows with the 500mhz FSB, I tried lowering the FSB to 450. I thought I would work up from there but it acted the same way. The I set the memory to Auto and now boots right into windows then I lowered the CPU voltage down from 1.425 to 1.4 and it actually primed a bit longer CPU Z now shows 1.375 volts. I want to try 1.35 volts and see how it acts there. If things remain unchanged then still boots and runs in widows then I am pretty sure CPU volts is not the issue and I am thinking now it one of the GTL ref voltages my bet its Northbrige or memory setting. it even seems that adding voltage to the memory makes things worst that it actually seems to act better @2 volts the 2.1 this makes me so confused !!
I am also using the 200.b divider the 200.d boots but don't seem stable at all I have no idea why all the FSB speeds and Cpu speed is the same so what it the the 220b and 200d when they both show my FSB in CPUZ as 1800 MHZ? so it seems 450 quad pumped for both. I wow 1800mhz FSB thats fast.
As far and giving the chip to someone else to clock it under LN2.
I am sorry but I can't afford that kind of stuff, I will have to sell this sooner or later. I had to lay out money I did not have when I got the by mistake. I was already stretched buying 2 QX9650's. I just don't have it like that to play with money. I would be so screwed if the chip got cooked. I would be more then happy to sell it to someone like that, then if they cook it it's there money. I am doing this for fun yes, but also to prove the chip so someone like that will see this might be worth their time and money. I have had my fill of the my e8** does this or that, what makes this one so great. Or it not a I7 it not worth nothing or it's only a Dual core. Phhuuu every time someone make a comment like that my head pops off. I want more then anything for this chip to end up clocked by a pro, win a championship as one of the fast chips in the world, so I can say that is why this chip is special not to mention being 1 0f 2 know in the world right now.
There are some that follow this thread that really get the picture and understand this then there are the rest that just think this should go in moms email machine.
I would really also like to show them using a benchmark that this chip clocked at 5ghz running a a pair of 4870 in crossfire on a few games that in the real world games can run as fast on this dual core as there beloved i7.
So I guess I have something to prove and feel I have to do this. I have taken enough crap since this started.
I feel I have some good guys here trying to help me get this bad boy clocked and I don't want to give up and let them down if there is anyway I can prove this chip. If I fail then maybe I pass the torch but not til I give it one hell of a college try Or someone makes me a offer I can't refuse *LOL*
