Back on the topic of 875k's, I just got back from an after-work adventure. I went all the way to a Micro Center and bought an i7 875k for $250 + tax.

I am considering an ASUS P7P55D-E Pro to go with it. I guess my questions to those of you who own this board:

Are you happy with the combination of cpu and mb?

Will the mb control cpu fans with voltage (not just pwm)?

Would the ASUS P7P55D-E or the ASUS P7P55D-E LX do just as well with this cpu?
I have the base model P7P55D-E board, (not the LX), the board is fully fledged but not with all the bells and whistles. It doesn't have 16x-16x or even 8x-8x in PCI-e lanes. It only does 16x-4x. Regardless of that, the BIOS in all the Asus D-E boards are the same and OC the same.

That isn't a big deal, but I DO recommend getting the Premium or Pro version just to get a good 8x-8x PCI-e lane for any SLI or Crossfire X you might do.

In my case, I knew that I would use ATI on a mid-level and upgrade to a single GPU later on. GTX 470 in like 6 months or a year from now...I'm not playing at 1080p so what's the point....

Back on topic. Get a good Asus board or even Evga, but those can be pricey, go for the most features that YOU need, not what seems good based on what you THINK you MIGHT need. Odds are you won't and could spend that budget on better ram, SSD or whatever else.

This is the kind of info I need. Aside from 24-phase vs 12-phase VRM, the Gigabyte boards share BIOS and basic functionality. I got a -UD3P because i didn't need more than it offers.

It appears Asus does the same. I use single Video cards. So it may be that all I need is the P7P55D-E. How high have you OC'd with it?

Well, I am not going to lie...I'm an OC newb. However, since the 875k is unlocked, its super easy to get a moderate overclock by upping the multiplier or using the bios setting that allows you to up the "speed bins" of the processor.

You can set it to +1, +2 or what ever n number you want for each of the four cores. As in depending on if a program uses 1 or 4 cores, your speed will change up or down in frequency, unless you have all the speed bins set to the same +number. This means is that SpeedStep is still enabled for powersaving and you don't use all the power phases all the time.

You can OC normally as well for much higher clock speeds, but I don't have the cooling to get to 4.0 Ghz, looks like you do so I'd honestly go back to GhostLeader and some of the other higher clocking 875k users here. Keep in mind that most of them used high end Asus boards or Evga.

I posted a link on page a while back.... here it is again.


Good Luck with your decision and keep us posted

I hate that kids voice, sounds like a slightly manlier Justin Gayber.

OC'ing isn't that hard, read this if you want, probably one of the best guides out there IMO.

Love the stuff that Miahallen does.

EDIT: Just put up the latest revision from Mia

Now that's a great looking guide! Hopefully I'll be back to my machine at some point this weekend. Push it a tad further and hope that guide helps!

Yeap, I got a Evga P55 FTW and it works great, bios is a bit different to what I use to since I mostly have run Asus board but it comes around.


I have my crappy i5 750 on it right know and it has OC the i5 a bit better then the MIIIF did but I don´t know if I going to switch it for the i7 875k since the 875 works so great with my MIIIF and the Evga board only runs SLI and not Crossfire but...

I have two GTX 460 incoming and they are suppose to out performe a single GTX 480 and they are suppose to do the same with the 5870 in crossfire, so, if they do I might switch the MIIIF for the Evga, the only downside right now for the Evga is that it dosen´t have the Turbo Unlocker feature, so time will tell.


How does your MIIIE comes around?


Sorry guys for the off topic

I've tried it several times and I'm totally stumped.
Since I am trying to decide on an Asus vs a Gigabyte board for my new 875k, I am concerned whether this is a global problem with Asus. His board is a p7p55d Evo.

I have never had that problem, probably he hasn´t set up his bios correct, probably some power save feature enabled at the same time his turbo is disabled.

I shouldn´t worry if I was you, pick a Asus board and you get the awesome Turbo Unlocker feature, Gigabyte doesn´t have that.

Anyone know if the odd multipler rule applies to this cpu too? Like is it ok to run at 24x multi and 160blk? Or is it better to do something like 25x multi instead?
post #310 of 560
As far as I know, any multiplier, even or odd, will work fine since standard Multi is 22x.

I'm gonna be re-seating my 212+ and adding a pull fan as well as additional case cooling tonight. I also flashed my bios to the newest since it is supposed to help with the new cpus and I figured that I needed to RE-OC my chip to hopefully get a tad more out of it, while still having the energy saving features enabled. Hope my temps under load drop by like 5c or something. Updates later hopefully.
