My story: I just bought a 1090T and Crosshair IV Formula. about the same as you spent, maybe a bit more.

My plan: wait for ivy bridge, unless the Socket 1366 replacement chips can hit 5.5Ghz on air without a Vcore tweak.

To the OP,
SB looks to be better than most of the i7-9xx. If you literally just bought the parts what are your options for a refund from the store? If that is not an option, and u really want the faster speeds depending on what YOUR NEEDS are you could sell current components and then buy SB. The last options is of course keep current until such a time as you need to do another upgrade. Your 940 will still be decent, it just wont outperform SB on an AIR setup.

i wouldnt bother, jumping through so many hoops(unless you feel you HAVE to keep up with the joneses) when you dont need to, i think you can get your rig stable!! what are your bios setting(bckl/ram freq/multi/volts/speedstep/turbo/spread spectrum, etc)

god!! dont tell me everyone is going to turn this into ANOTHER 1155 vs 1366 thread. there both solid rigs, and good performing sockets, but this back and forth of who's is better is BS. and it hardly helps the OP

Need me to draw a map? It ends in hurt, starts at butt.


How does all this help the OP?

He clearly is disappointed in his 9xx, he already knows he probably spent as much on his current setup as what it would have cost to go with a SB setup and he knows his performance isn't going to be close to what he'd get on sandy bridge.

If you want the fastest cpu today, you need to go sandy bridge. Do you need the fastest? No. But then most of you on i7's from last gen should have just gone with AMD builds since we're talking about the same difference between their chips compared to AMD chips which were better than Intel at this price point just a few days ago and more cost effective.

Saving money isn't cost effective. Either you spend it and the items lose value, or you keep it and the money itself loses value. All that matters is "Can he afford it?" If yes, next question.. If no, stop here. Second question is "Will you be happier with the SB setup?" If yes, sell your mobo and chip and buy a SB setup. If no, keep what you have and figure out how to get more out of it.

$300 for the i7 ($200 for the i5).

$160 on a x8x8 board.

He won't need anything else, since he already has it all.


So thats between $460 to $360 to go sandy bridge.

I'd assume he could unload his current cpu and mobo for what - $200? $250? $300?


You do the math, loads... Ha.

I think you need to spend a bit more time working with your chip; but some chips just don't OC well. I can't get my first i7 860 stable, for example. My second 860 seems to enjoy 4GHz more than stock clocks, though. It's a crapshoot. Sometimes you win; sometimes you don't.

In any case, you're no loser: your 3.5 gig 940 does better than your old chip at 4. Be at peace.

Thread Starter 
Thanks for all the feedback, I would feel a bit better if I could squeeze just a bit more out of this dog of a chip. The bane of my existence is BSOD error code 124.

I tried last night for 23 x 165. W/t 1.325/1.275QPIv, I got BSOD 101.

It seems as though the chip's cores aren't my problem because I can almost always eliminate a 101 or a failed worker with more vcore, but that is always then followed by the darn 124 with the upped vcore.

So, after upping vcore to 1.35, my temps in Lynx were still below 70C, but, of course, I got the 124.

I then tried QPIv at 1.35, 1.375, and 1.4. They BSOD 124'd me even faster.

I tried all of this with the RAM @ 2:6(super slow).

My stable settings are(voltages are bios setting unless otherwise noted):

22*160
1.3 vcore (1.288 in cpuz)
1.275 QPIv
1.1 IOH and ICH
DRAM @ 2:8 = ddr-1280
cpu dif amp = 1000mv
both clock skews @ 1000ps

I have all speed step, turbo, cpu tm, c1, and speed spectrum disabled.

Edit:
LLC on
PLL @ 1.8
Settings are from memory, so I feel like I'm forgetting something.

I a couple more questions:
It took 1.25 QPIv to get stock cpu and ram speeds stable. Should the default 1.2 have been sufficient?

Will they put out any more chips for 1366 besides $1000 990X's(or whatever they will be called)? Will we ever see a 200 300 dollar 32 nm chip for 1366?
