yea 7ghz. It all depends on the silicone with this board, better Cpu will clock better. It just proves that this board is great for LN2 and that its not going to limit a gulftown. Bloomfield most should be good for like mid 230 ish blck without slow mode.

Honestly benching LN2 on the board is really fun.

I found that if voltage is pushed too high you will know, the CPU will hate it. I think -70C is fine to be honest as high as you can, but of course -150 is MUCh safer. Id say you prob wont need more than 1.7v, but I am sure 1.8v would be fine, i wouldn't push 1.9v on DICE tho, even though if you look at some of these WRs they are all in the mid 1.8s. I gotta put my OCing on hold for the next week or two so i can finish up this performance review and get some other reviews done. 6685 #6 on HWBot is good enough for ATM, but i am really looking forward to better bench sessions in the future. I think I can do 6.8ghz, i have all the settings ready just lack of resources ATM.

For instance its hard to get to -150, i had to play with EVERY setting for teh CPU PLL overvoltage to overcome cold bugs. I was at -115 and i thought that was like this:
1.3v ok for -100ish CBB @-50C
1.4v Same
1.5V same
1.6v good for -130ish CBB @-100
1.7v good for -150ish CBB @-100
1.8v good for -100 CBB @-50(this means everytime OC fails and CMOS resets i gotta wait for -50C LOL)

1.8-1.9v same as 1.8v
1.9-2.1v CBB from -50 to -100, cold bug at -120.(freaking weird)

So yea that apart from setting clock skews from 50-700ups and differential amplitude to 1000 then 900 then 800 then 900 lol

Then messing with vcore( i can boot into windows at -150c at 1.5v at 5.6ghz, 1.6v at 5.77, 1.8v though i found to be good.

Ram best set at 8x and uncore at 3600 for final.

Odd multipliers are best for the 990x and its ******* hot running CPU 200 watts pull through socket current monitoring hardware during IDLE, i didn't even try load my meter only goes to 250 lol. High leakage ES chip to blame for its great OC and high heat. ES chips have no TDP that is why they OC so good.

******* crazy ****.

Of course i have hicookie and chew and dino to thank for advices.

OK, I have a question. Is the X58A-UD7 a solid OC performer (Ver 1) and are they any issues with running a SSD compared to a P55/P67 board? I'm not concerned with SATA 6Gb SATA. I want to try a X58 board to compare with my Asus P55 board.

Haha, thanks! So I'll see the CPU hate it before it dies, that's good to know I think I can get down to about -76/78 with acetone, but that's about it.

And this 980X I have topped out last push for me at 5.5ish and needed 1.7+ for that, so that's why I asked about using 1.8 or above on Dice,just wondered how safe you thought it might be.

I def. think I wont use 1.9 or more on dice, this CPU isn't the greatest to begin with, so I'd suspect it's probably already been there anyway

Congrats on getting into the top ten man, very nice!!

I need to buy a dewar asap!!

UD7 is great with SSD's, check out my C300 review linked in my signature and you can see how SSD's perform on UD7. There isn't any issues with X58 and SSD's and the UD7 is an awesome board

OK, how is the OC stability with say 1600 DDR3 memory? I am considering getting one of these mobos used, since I cannot find the P55 UD7 board. I would use a i7 960 if the deal goes through with a 6990 and 6970 for video cards. I haven't touched Gigabyte mobos in about 5 years. I was a avid user, but Asus would beat them in overall OC back in the 775 days, so I switched. I appreciate any comments, positive or negative. I'm like both Asus and Gigabyte, so I'm not a fanboi trying to compare brands against one another.

The UD& overclocks memory awesome, I reached 2600+ with it several times, as for 1600Mhz memory, also check my signature Ridgeback review is a 1600Mhz kit I reviewed with UD7 (See also Radioactive, but it's 2000Mhz kit)

I have not used Asus for years, so I can't really comment on them, but I can tell you Gigabyte makes some awesome board these days and you can't go wrong with a Rev. 1.0 UD7!

Thanks for the added thoughts above Sin, most appreciated! I just have to get me a dewar as soon as I can, I can't really see renting one because I know that will be money down the drain as I'll want to rent and rent and rent, so I might as well find one I can buy.

How easy is it to pour into a cup/pitcher by yourself with that 25L?

yea man good luck with your 980x, i bet itll do at least 5.7 or 5.8, probabaly 6.X on LN2.

Um its actually easy, i pour into a metal pitcher that i ghetto insulated. Then i found a small pourer that is metal with wooden handle and i insulated it too, except for the handle which never gets cold. I use ski gloves to pour the LN2, some gets out and just evaporated off the ground or my shoe, but most makes it in. Its not that heavy, i can lug it around, its not that heavy when its filled, but teh dewar itself is really heavy. I asked about a valve to help dispense but they told me i shouldn't need one.

When i buy teh LN2 they tell me that the dewar is free if i use it only for a few days and bring it back, which is about how long the LN2 lasts. I put it in the back seat when i drive it home and i buckle it up and push the front passenger seat up against it and i haven't had any problems on the highway or anything. its a bit scary since it doesn't have a top, instead they gave me a Styrofoam insert, which you can just pull out and is bounces around if i go over a bump b/c they fill that sucker up until the LN2 pours over teh top! lol.

All in all i am really luck to find Ln2 + dewar rental for cheap. I couldn't justify buying a dewar in my situation because I still would have to pay the same price for the LN2.

BTW mess around with the switching frequency, many times MHz(the ma) isn't the best. I found that 800, the first two switches on is pretty good.
