I had cause to put the 550 setup back together (testing a Palit GTX 460
and a SATA3 card), so here's all the info...

Within Windows, Vcore in CPU-Z is shown as 1.44V idle, 1.424V under load.

CoreTemp shows CPU idle temps are 11/22C idle (yeah right, something
weird there), 54/58C max (15 mins Prime95). Loads of headroom to boost
further, but not on this board (doesn't like really high bclks).
RealTemp shows the same max-temp info.


BIOS data (Asrock P55 Deluxe; CPU temp shown as 28C, with room ambient 20C):

Bclk: 196
PCIE: 101
BFG: ON
Spread Spectrum: OFF
CPU Mult: 24
QPI: 8.624
DRAM: 784 (DDR3/1568)
VDroop Mode: Without VDroop
V-Core: 1.41250
DRAM-V: 1.671
VTT: 1.384
PCH: 1.175
PLL: 1.895

Enhanced Halt State: OFF
Intel Virtualisation: OFF
HT: ON
SpeedStep: OFF
C-States: OFF

HPET: OFF
GFX: PCIE
LAN 1: ON
LAN 2: OFF
1394: OFF
EuP: OFF
SATA: AHCI
Link Power Management: OFF


Btw, here's a 3DMark06 run:

http://3dmark.com/3dm06/16465392

and a 3DMark11 run:

http://3dmark.com/3dm11/2755891

Both done with a single Palit GTX 460 1GB Sonic Platinum.


NB: my tests-jj.txt page has a section entitled, "TOMS CPU TESTS" -
these tests are exactly the same as those employed by tomshardware.com
for their CPU reviews such as the 3960X (they were kind enough to send
me copies of the test suites), and I run them in the same way, ie.
using an SSD to hold the test data so that storage factors are excluded.
Thus, my data can be directly compared to toms' CPU reviews; how my oc'd
550 performs for single-threaded tasks is particularly interesting in
this context (shows just how good an oc'd Clarkdale can be for use as
a general-purpose system).

Hope this helps! smile.gif

Ian.



Using your settings a a guide, I was able to achieve 4.02Ghz stable with my i3 550.

Setup is as follows:
MB: Asus P7P55D-E Evo
OC settings I used:
BClk: 166
Spread Spectrum: Off
CPU Multi: 25
QPI: Lowest available instead of auto
Dram 1336Mhz
VTT: 1.385
PCH: 1.175
PLL: 1.800

So far running stable, Also on the Windows 10 Pro TP Build 9926

Hmm, with the ASUS EVO you ought to be able to go a lot higher than ~4GHz. Really, just about
any i3 550 should do 4.5 minimum, or are you going for a stock-voltage oc?

I have a few other better P55 boards, but atm they're being used for other things (i5 760 in one,
i7 875K in a 2nd, i7 870 in a 3rd); pretty sure I can get an i3 to 5GHz on a better board. Maybe
have a crack at this during the summer.

Anyway, with a multi of 25, I would have thought the EVO could handle at least bclk = 195.

Have you tried following Miahallen's guide to isolate bclk settings and max potential beforehand?
Helps sort out what the VTT needs to be, though I'd be happy with any VTT below 1.45 (it can
handle quite a lot). PLL had a surprising effect sometimes, but it probably varies chip to chip,
board to board.

I would but with a 650W PS, and still a stock cooler I don't want to push it till I get my liquid cool on it.

650 should be plenty, unless you're packing some heavy GPUs. I kinda steamrollered the whole power issue
for all the benchmark builds I put together, spent a while last year & before obtaining a bunch of new/used
Thermaltake Toughpower 1475W XT Gold PSUs, last one only cost 84. biggrin.gif

Btw, my i3 550 @ 4.7 just uses an old TRUE and two fans, no need for water. though I might try an H80 if
I do go for a 5GHz run later.

Might give it a shot up to maybe 4.2 or 4.5 Kinda not wanting to push to much with a stock fan. And see how that goes.

Oh!! I didn't realise you had a stock cooler. In that case yes, keeping it on the lesser side is wise, though as long as
the temps are ok and you're happy with the voltages then it doesn't really matter.

Btw, this is the model of cooler I'm using:

http://www.scan.co.uk/search.aspx?q=LN26448

It's an older type, but still holds up well. Normally I get them cheap off ebay (usually for about 10 to 15), but there aren't so many
around atm. However, anything along those lines should do fine (I have a 2-fan Phanteks to sell cheap, but I don't know if that'd
be too big; very effective, quiet and cool though).

As for fans, pretty much anything. For pure benchmarking lunacy I use a couple of Yate Loon fans which'd blow the skin off
a rhino. biggrin.gif (total overkill btw; one doesn't need anything remotely as powerful to have an i3 running safely at 4.7, but I wanted
plenty of headroom, though in the event the limiting factor for oc'ing was the max blck the mbd could handle, not the heat).
If you want low noise, people will recommend Noctua (and they are very good), but they're ugly as heck IMO, so I use &
recommend Nanoxia Deep Silence 120mm PWM, half the price and just as good. Indeed, two NDS fans on an H80 is fine for
cooling a 3930K @ 4.8GHz (testing such a setup as I type), never mind a much cooler running i3 550...

Ah ha! Here are a few good ones for you:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261755406399
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=291364407989
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=231464873910

The NH-D14 is obviously the best, but it's big, so check mbd compatibility before considering it.

And don't worry, I won't be bidding on any of them, I already have a stack of TRUEs and H80s. biggrin.gif

Ian.

Ahhh, Ive heard good things about the NH-D14, as well as the 212. Been thinking of getting the 212. But so far under constant load, My temps across all cores only get to about 60 C on the stock. And that doesnt seem to be too bad.

The D14 is up there with the similarly huge Phanteks PH-TC14PE, in theory both quite a bit above the 212 EVO performance-wise (no surprise,
eg. the Phanteks has up to 3x 140mm fans). However, with temps around 60 then as you say nothing better is needed atm.

Folks, just a quick heads up.

 

I am looking at doing an Intel section overclocking competition very soon.  This is a good chance for you all to put your nicely overclocked chips to the test!

 

I have created a discussion thread and would really appreciate your input.

 

http://www.overclock.net/t/1539659/official-ocn-intel-overclocking-competition-discussion-thread-we-need-your-thoughts/0_100

 

Thanks!

post #2410 of 2438
Most intriguing! Is it the sort of competition where the goal is absolute highest clock rates? Or is success measured
by various performance tests in different CPU categories?

Hard to decide how to judge such things I expect, eg. which is the greater achievement, a Clarkdale i3 at 4.8GHz, or a
G3258 at 4.8GHz. Much easier to do the latter, and it'll give better performance, but the Clarkdale is the tougher challenge.

Will have a look at the thread later; thanks for the notice & link!!

Ian.
