Besides BF4 it boosts results in most Futuremark benches, if benches matter to you..

Love Benching... I think I am going to keep an ear out for a not too expensive 980x / 990X Luna has a 980 but I think that would be harder to O/C

awesome. I take it new 760 card and SSD will be fine with what i have now.

Yeah, i'll hold out and wait another year or so for a complete new build.
post #3353 of 3829
There are lots of us still running i7-9xx. Biggest drawback is SATA III and USB3. I really want an X58A-OC. tongue.gif

What do you mean doyll? Are you implying i cant use the samsung evo ssd on my ud3r x58a board?
post #3355 of 3829
well i'm having an issue with the hard drives. One decided to be a pain in the butt. The connection kind of broke off and seems flimsy. I was not hard on it or rough lol. So i tried putting it back plugged in and it seems to be okay at the moment.





So as it is sitting right now plugged in, i'm able to access the hard drive in IDE mode (bios) and saved some stuff then reformatted it. Thing is i have windows 7 installed on the new SSD and i did that in with ACHI instead of IDE. So now i can't even see the reformatted hard drive. I dont want to switch back to ide mode in the bios and be able to use the reformatted drive. ACHI seems to be more responsive and quicker.

Any one help?

Fixed!

I put everything in sata 6 ports (white) instead of blue) and now everything works.

You can use it no problem. It just won't be as fast as on a newer generation motherboard because the Marcell 9128 doesn't give good transfer speeds. as newer sata 3. The Intel ICH10R has a bandwidth cap of 610-680ish, varies from review to review. The Marvell 9128 bottlenecks at around 400MB/s.

Here's an intel 510 SSD tested on both

My next upgrade will be an SSD.

Yeah nice save, I have made a point of never using the marvell ports. I have never heard anything good. I ended up putting my ssds in raid 0. When I do finally upgrade I WI keep them separate.

Glad you got them working.

So my Xeon X5660 Came in today!

I plopped it into the Motherboard added some 6 yr old Artic Silver 5 and it loaded fine. The interesting thing is that the temps are 38C with no load and it is using my i7-930 settings:

I know I am overclocking this all wrong. Has anyone here overclocked this chip? I am curious to know the right steps for this Xeon Overclock compared to my i7-930

Off the bat, the good news is that Windows loaded fine with these. Bad news is I have the Clock set to 21. Knowing this I should change it to 23, but I read its locked at 21 no? Can you guys look at my settings to give me your opinion?

These are my settings right now:

I'm running an X5650 in this board, overclocking it is mostly the same as the old series, the main difference being that you can set lower QPI ratio in relation to the dram ratio. The lowest is now 1.5 instead of the 2.0 on 45nm, with the optimal ratio being 1.66 to 1.84. Other than that I found that some BSOD codes relate to different problems, but that may just be me.

On the note of cpu multi, if you enable turbo then you can set it to 23.
