Those of you running Corsair Dominator, are you tightening the timings at all?

Right now I'm at 8-8-8-24 but at 1T instead of 2T. Had to bump the QPI to 1.25 to get that 1T.

Anyone messed with those at all? 1600mhz BTW.

I haven't messed with he timings i have just left them stock. I have always noticed negligible performance increases on overclocking the ram. mine is currently 8-8-8-24 2t. how much of a difference do you notice from 1t to 2t?

No idea.

What can I use to test that? I don't have any benching software anymore. The last thing I used was probably Sis Sandra back in 2001!!

Anyone noticed that EVERYONE can overclock the snot out of their chip at low voltage and HT off?

It's only when it's on that it gives problems.

Recently purchased this board for my first ground up home build and I must say it was not only fun but very easy to work with. I also just ordered an H50 and some extra fans in hopes to start overclocking this. Before I even dig into doing an OC though I wanted to get thoughts on BIOS version. Mine is dated 11/25/09 and is version 0402, is there a more appropriate BIOS I should be working with?

Sorry for hijacking but What is the difference between the new Gigabyte that also supports Sata 3 and USB and this?

THis board seems somehow limited now that someone mentions about the PCI-e and running in SLI and so on.

Thanks!!!

I replaced the stock H50 fan with two Cooler Master R4-L2R-20AC-GP, 120 mm fans in a push/pull setup. This has dropped my core temps by 3 degrees across all four cores.

During 10 IBT runs:

before 69 66 68 66
after 66 63 65 62

I also added an OCZ XTC Cooler 2 for a memory cooler. I'll get some updated pics later.

Yep. Actually it's been on and off the last day. Either a glitch in their system or they don't want to reimburse people for fried i7's when they follow instructions in their manual and use Turbo-V, just to find that any voltage change (up or down) instantly locks at 1.6v. That's a lot of juice for air cooling and a lot of water cooling setups too. Not to mention the POS stock cooler...

0702 seems okay otherwise. But somehow it is storing/setting voltage data differently than 0604. Besides Vcore there is a problem with QPI/Dram too but it's harder to figure out. Sometimes it will read BIOS values like 1.25v or 1.3v as 1.375v. And I was able to reduce QPI/Dram to 1.2v using Turbo-V while running LinX without a crash, making me think it is not actually adjusting anything. That is definitely not the case with Vcore, since I saw all four cores shoot to 100C instantly once it locked in 1.6v. Thankfully my kill switch is right up front on my Banchetto 101.

Hopefully a revised BIOS or Turbo-V version will be available soon. Too bad Asus doesn't really have any interactive technical support.

Yeah, I noticed that last night actually. I think someone else mentioned it the other day as well, but, then noticed Asus put it back on again. But now it's off again. lol

EDIT: It was ekovalsky.

A photo of the new build. Banchetto 101. Dual 8800 Ultra placeholders until Fermi. Intel 160G2 plus four Raptors. Noctual NH-D14. Crucial DDR3-1600 Ballistix Tracer. Seasonic X-750.

Crap i7-920 D0 (newegg) replaced with crap i7-930 D0 (frys). The latter is requiring no less than 1.375v Vcore for stability in LinX even after hours tweaking other settings and isolating potential non-CPU problems. It was over 1.4v on the 920 Core temps pushing beyond 80 even with dual fans on the Noctua. It's vastly cooler without HT, like 10-15C at load, but I do 3D rendering and folding so want it on.

Thinking about a W3520 if I cannot find a "golden batch" i7-920 that can do 4.2GHz + on 1.3v or less. Seems like all the W3520's can do this. Else I may be tempted by a Gulftown or a 32nm Xeon next month...

Plan is for water cooling before summertime. Probably going with a Feser Xchanger 360 (unless I can get a Monsta) with 120x55mm fans on a controller. CPU and chipset are just fine with quiet air cooling, water will be for the dual Fermi cards only since nearly all of this rig's noise is from the GPU fans.
