Well, I suppose if you have a retail PC you could prove what it is worth and claim it on either home owner's insurance, or make a claim to the city asking for reimbursement. When your tower is a piecemeal beast consisting of parts from three different etailers, and several different ebay purchases, it is a lot harder to prove it even exists.
Anyway, my m11x r2 is in my hands this very moment, and it is indeed perfect. I'm a little confused on overclocking it right now though. in the BIOS I have turbo enabled, and I have increased the bus speed to 150(I looked around a few forums and everybody reported being stable at this speed, so this is where I'll start testing my OC) I'm using CPUZ, Throttlestop, and the EVGA Precision tool. When I have speedstep on and I stress the CPU it hits up to a 16x multiplier. If I turn speedstep off and set the multiplier in Tstop it only goes up to 10x. I can't seem to figure out why. I've tried with a few different configurations and nothing seems to make a difference. Is this is a limitation on Tstop? Should I be using something else? Also, is my turbo setting in the bios possibly fowling this up? I ask because Tstop has a software turbo disabler, and it doesn't seem to do anything whether I check it or uncheck it.
I have dug around on several different forums, but I keep running into a major problem of finding info for the R1 instead of the R2 and it often makes a difference,
Edit: Oops, I'm a moron, lol. I see now that I should leave speed stepping on and set my performance profile to max. Now it is running at 15-17x all the time. It seems like tstop just isn't necessary here. I have brought my 3dmark06 score from 6600 to 7300 through CPU/GPU overclocks. Everything is apparently stable and definitely cool. No hard load tests, but everything is running well under normal use, and no error or artifacts in 3dmark06. Once I get my score where I like it, and I have some solid CPU and GPU speeds I'll do a proper burn in. Processor is sitting at 2.55GHz right now, and the GPU is at 500/1200/850 and I'm pretty sure I can get the CPU to 2.6GHZ and the video "might" go to 550/1320/875... but that is likely just wishful thinking.Edited by Dracc - 11/10/10 at 3:11am
