Biostar TP67XE - Page 4

post #31 of 42
^ i agree, the PSU & case are two things you want to spend the most money on imo, purely because they're capable of lasting through multiple builds in the future

newegg often has deals on the AX, i got my AX750 for $120 after rebate

Yes, they still have a great deal on the AX750 + ASUS PRO Motherboard with a -$40 Discount. However, my heart is set on the Biostar and it will look fantastic in my case. I'm hoping I can snag a deal on an AX. I have an Seasonic X-750 that I just sold which is basically identical to the AX750 except for the cabling and overall looks. The X-750 has large, round cables and mesh sleeving so all of the plethora of wire colors shows through as well as the large yellow tabs on the end of the cables. The AX should be far easier to maneuver through the case with its flat cabling.

Keep in mind that while the flat cables are easy to maneuver the 24 pin, pci-e, and 8 pin power cables are very hard to move. They are not very flexible expecially compared to my previous tx650. Basically all the non flat cables that are sleeved are very durable and tough which makes it not flexible. That being said I was able to manipulate them how I wanted it just took a tad extra force than the solid black cables. Nothing to worry about just something to mention

I'm disappointed with my Tp67XE. I like the onboard power & reset buttons, along with the debug screen. I like the price and that it officially supports sli, since other brands entry levels don't.

I don't like that I can't clock my chips high with it. I picked up a 2600k and could barely break 5ghz with it. I picked up an MSI gd-65 and can break 5.3ghz with it.

Some of the bios issues are being worked out, such as allowing someone to save profiles and in the next version, it will be a nicer looking uefi bios. Not that I care too much about uefi, but it will be there.

Mikecdm, how do you like that MSI GD65? Any booting issues?

Did you try updating the bios to the Beta on the Biostar??
Helped my overclock ALOT, Also under CPU Config. There is a Energy Saving setting. Disable that for sure..
Also Ive found that LLC on this board doesn't seem to work ( yet ), and hinders my overclock ALOT.. Disable that as well. Even with the beta bios
Let me know if this helps.

How much are you talking about in Mhz and would this be at the same volts? Would be nice to give out a number or two.

On that note, seems that there are a lot of BIOS updates that fix or allow OC for the CPU PLL increasing overclocking potential. ASUS, ASRock, and Biostar seem to be doing this.

I made the bios update, but still have problems to break 5Ghz. Probably i will keep the board for another few days, but i am thinking to change it.
post #39 of 42
Since when did Intel guarantee every chip will do 5 ghz??
Also here is this board doing 5 ghz on my 2500k

Only thing to blame here is your overclocking skills, Or the chip. The board is not at fault .

The results below are based on the range of the CPU turbo multiplier when overclocking.

Results are representative of 100 D2 CPUs that were binned and tested for stability under load; these results will most likely represent retail CPUs.

1. Approximately 50% of CPUs can go up to 4.4~4.5 GHz

2. Approximately 40% of CPUs can go up to 4.6~4.7 GHz

3. Approximately 10% of CPUs can go up to 4.8~5 GHz (50+ multipliers are about 2% of this group)

Additionally it is recommended to keep 「C1E」and「EIST」option enabled for the best overclock scaling. This is different than previous Intel overclocking expectations where the best scaling was with disabled power states or power management options."

So far it's working well. I haven't really had any booting issues up until using the 53x multi. It says PCI device not found or something like that. It also acts a little funny at times when pushing the clocks too high. More than likely, my chip just doesn't want to clock any higher. The most I can "stably" get out of this chip is 5.1ghz.

First thing that I've done with the three P67's that I've used is to update the bios. I did disable the energy savings features, but didn't mess with the LLC too much. I had a feeling that it wasn't doing nothing, but after much frustration, I think that I didn't mess with it much.

I've seen others get good clocks with the mb, I think i just have a bad chip. The odd thing is that with the msi I can clock this chip higher than with the biostar. Not by much, but still higher.

Supposedly a new bios is coming out soon, very soon. It will be an actual uefi bios and it will allow profiles to be saved.
