post #1231 of 6378
Hi guys, i'm now stable @4.2 with the v-core under load at 1.33, and the ram set at 1600 but with tight timings as advised by you guys, thanks for that good idear! Also i used that 101 for my crossfired cards on my q6600 so just carried that setting across and now i'm stable as a house and getting about 26,000 in 3dmark 06.
jamie
(altho you know when i get home i'll seeif i can go a little further! And count me in for the mo-bo war
One again thanks guys...

you need 110-115 to get higher BCLK i used 115 to get 5GHz on phase but on water most you can run is like 4.6GHz due to temps mine hit the 80's at 1.44v 4.4GHz i might need better fans on the rad but 4.2GHz for daliy use seems okay

but i have it at 100 in SLI never noticed any problems when cards are oced

Man 5Ghz! i really wan't to get into water but i don't really know much about it except i'm a student and "watta" cost about £500 for a decent setup...
Anyway i'm gunna see how high i can go on air when i get home, have you seen any (normal person) ie without a super chip get an 930 to 4.4 on air yet?

Anyone in here lap their cpu?

I've been reading conflicting reports of 2-10C drop in temps. When I lapped my TRUE it didn't help much, but I wonder if its because the cpu surface is not very flat.

I might do it if I could get 5C out of it. I think I've pretty much already voided the warranty

I got about 4° C better temps after lapping my cpu. It was my first time so I didn't take it down that far. But it was so much easier to lap that my true copper. It being so heavy and all.

My initial temps with water cooling on my i7 920 D0 @ 4 GHz were high 86-88. After multiple adjustments of my water block I discovered that the IHS of my processor was severely convexed in shape . The center was contacting the block but the sides each did not make contact at all and had a very large layer of grease in between. I first tightened down my cpu block and that helped a few degrees. But I then decided to both lap my cpu and install an Indigo Extreme TIM. My temps under full load now are 68-70 C across all cores.

Lapping can definitely get you lower temps. But I also highly recommend the Indigo Extreme.

I'll do it if it gets me 5C. That 5C is what's gonna get me to 4.4 HT on.

Indigo Extreme huh? Isn't that the scary terminator 2 liquid metal stuff? How did the application go for you?

Yes it is that "mimetic poly alloy"(perfect Schwarzenegger accent) but it shouldn't kill you or try to destroy humanity in the future (I'm pretty sure).

The application worked great. It is initially a bit scary to see your processor temps max out to 100 C but it worked exactly like it was supposed to.

But you HAVE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY! If you do not it will not work.

The initial installation is not difficult at all. You just have to make sure everything is clean but all supplies needed are included in the kit. The instructions are very thorough and well thought out.

I have a water cooled setup and for the initial melting of the TIM I only had to unplug my pumps, allow the TIM to heat to 100 C and then level off. Once this happened, I plugged my pumps in to set the TIM and everything was good.

As I type this, I am running Prime95x64 on all 4 cores (with HT) at 100% utilization and my temps are 69, 67, 67, and 64 C respectively. I was in the high 80's previously. I improved that by tightening down the hold downs on my water block with much more force than I was comfortable with. But this only got me down to 82 - 80 C at max load.

So I would say that the lapping would get you about 5 C and the Indigo Extreme will get you about another 5 C.

Quick question, do you have to disable EIST and as a result, Turbo Boost in the BIOS for overclocking?

DOM, a few questions:

1. What's your bclk wall at? Mine cannot get stable at 220. I tried upping the the PCIE to 104, but it was the same story.

2. How safe is it to up the PCIE frequency? What's the limit before you'd start risking damage?

3. You say that you need 110-115 and no less to overcome the blck wall? So you wouldn't be stable with your PCIE at 109, but at 110 voila, you're stable? I dunno, I just don't understand the PCIE frequency, I've never bothered with it ever. But if it can help me with this stupid blck wall, it's worth knowing about.
