Im moving into Sandy Bridge, after all the issues I've had with OC'ing above 3.6Ghz, I gave up and I want to try Intel.
I'm glad I read this today and not during Christmas when I was already so depressed. Before you committed computer suicide, did you check out the very lucid "HowTo"


Overclocking Intel is tantamount to teaching pigs to fly! Sorry.

Quickie Question: What do you use your computer for or are you just all into seeing how many GHz. you can squeeze out?

The folks who used Liquid Nitrogen to set the maximum GHz. Overclock Record record, well I doubt that they can really do anything with that abortion. I'm sorry but, although I do overclock, I am a Pragmatist. I do so to increase performance, not to set a record for overclocking, though I guess that could be a viable hobby in and of itself.

Well, I am definitely grabbing a i7 2600k, which I heard it should be around 300-330€ in Europe.

I'm not an Overclocking noob, I tried everything, and no matter what, I could not post above 3.6Ghz..

Anyways, it's not just about the Ghz, I had a nice offer from a friend to buy my 1055T and my motherboard, and he gave me a very nice price, so I just wanted to upgrade into SB

Sounds like you know what you want, so that's totally cool. I think we're all alike in our search for the "Perfect Rig"; and that enthusiasm is what makes OCN so special.

I for one would be seriously interested in knowing what you tried, and failed at, in overclocking your 1055T. Could be helpful to many. FWIW, you did overclock from 2.8 to 3.6. Not too shabby.

I have a 1055T which I did not try to overclock, so you might be right about that flavor of the 6-core being a witch to overclock. The 1090T is a horse of a different color.

Hope I did not offend with my observations.

No worried mate.

As of my 1055T OC, I could easily do 4Ghz on my previous GA-MA790FXT-UD5P, but I was not able to pass 3.6Ghz on the CHIV

Now THAT is huge! FWIW, I have both the Crosshair Formula and the GA-MA790FXT-UD5P you referenced. Since I thought just the opposite would be true, i.e. the Crosshair would overclock better than the GB, I relegated my UD5 to my secondary or "slave" computer. It should be interesting, at least for me, to compare overclocking success and ease of the two boards. Much Appreciate the feedback!

Addendum: Are you saying that you took the 1055T AMD @2.8 GHz to 4.0 GHz on the Gigabyte board but could not do so on the Asus Formula? That is one helluva overclock!

Well, both boards are great, it's just a shame I wasn't able to pass 3.6Ghz, maybe my own fault, I'm not sure

But I definitely decided I'm going to SB.

Eclipse, haven't been near the computer since the cards arrived due to chasing Idiots around at work, non stop over new years. Ill go through the list of benchmarks tomorrow my first day off
I did pull a unigine run with all settings maxed via Crossfire(Not lucid) at stock for Posterity and I thought Raging might find it interesting, not Quite 580 Sli but with a little tinkering I think I can manage that quite easily though I have no idea yet what the ceiling might be...

Guys when you lot list '1.47v' or voltage round about that value in your sig is that under load?

Mine's 1.47v in BIOS but LLC puts that up to 1.51v under load with Intel Burn Test, so are the voltages I'm seeing with or without LLC?

Also I've tried installing the lucid drivers and it says hardware not detected

With my 9800GT in slot 5 it should pick it up surely?

slot 1 - 5850
slot 3 - 5850
slot 5 - 9800GT

Want to run PhysX with my 5850's

I list bios setting.

you need to run slots 1,2,4 or 1,2,5 Also there is a problem trying to use an Nvidia card for Phsyx which is that they have made their drivers only work when the Nvidia card is in the main slot which goes against what the board wants when using lucid.

So basically my 9800GT in this board is useless because of Lucid?
