i had to disable the load line so that it would droop down. if not it was hitting 1.47v. if i leave my volts on spec with load line enabled i can boot into windows at just about any multi.
I think my cpu hit a wall tho. if i want 5ghz i have to really pump the voltage. I tested to for 20 minutes at 1.45 load but temps were getting crazy, i hot 80c at one point. what difference 100mhz makes, not really. im happy with my 2.7GHz oc(or would it be 1.6 because cpu is 3.4ghz stock with turbo?) i knew i had a good chip when i was prime stable for 2 hours at 4ghz with only 1.096v load.

I was on the fence between the 2500k and the 2600k. But then my budget shrunk. Originally was going to get the p8p67 pro. i had to find some cheaper options and the $100 saved from going with a 2500k got my a nice SSD to make my build really nice. I even changed cases. I was going to get an antec 1200. I think this is the first time i am actually very happy with a cheaper build. LianLi really has some great bang for buck.

On a side note, do these chips have virtualization support? i saw on a poster that the k series did not but there is an option in the bios.

Big question, When i get a new setup i like to test it out before i mount it all in the case. This is the first mobo i have had that flexed. I mean the upper area near the IO ports was very noticeably flexed, i would say a good 2-3 cm. Any ideas? I never noticed this on previous build. Then again i have never had to use a mounting bracket. All is good now that it is in the case it just worried me.

BTW do you think adding the NB to a loop would make any difference?

nice dude, better than my chip lol

post up some screenshots w/ temps & cpu-z while folding

first question, what will you be doing with the pc? folding all day or using as a standard system(gaming,working,browsing?)
if you are going to use for folding then static multi is fine but if your not then no need to be at that speed when you dont need it. Also have you tried leaving all the cpu settings stock?
for vcore i cant give much insight because i have a 2500k and no HT.
are your current settings stable? also(correct me if im wrong) load line enable will actually force vdroop(isnt this option backwards).
what are your load volts? temps?

Looks like a Service Pack is the fix.

This PC is exclusively used for gaming. However, I would like to be stable enough for folding. My main PC is an i7 920 c0 mildly overclocked to 3.56 by following miahalens 3 step overclocking guide. I chose the GeminiiS cooler because of how quiet it was in my i3 540. That machine is stable at 4ghz with 4GB or 3.8ghz with 8gb. Perhaps 4.4ghz is too much to ask of the cooler, but . Is anyone here using the stock cooler, if so what are people getting out of it?

You're probably right about the load line, I'll switch it back off and check the results. It was quite late in the night when I posted those settings and had been changing settings quite a bit in the bios at the time. I do recall seeing the vcore drop under load at some point last night, and knew something was off.

try setting everything to stock. then try offSet voltage at 0.00v,. slowly start upping the multi. also try not overclocking your memory until you know you have good cpu settings. just set the timings to spd. change the multi on the turbo settings only, no need to have high voltage when you are idleing. also raise mac watts from 95 to like 120 or so. if my 2500k is any indication, i was able to hit 4.5ghz on offset 0.00v. you should be able to hit at least 4ghz without having to really crank the voltages. remember each chip is diferent. you might have a great chip you just need to find the sweet spot. what i did was run prime95 for 20 minutes between each step. also that cooler does seem whimpy but compared to the stock cooler it is a behemoth. You should be able to get better oc than with the stock. you should look at the FRIO, with only 1 fan set to low it is very quiet. I run both fans on max and its not to loud. quieter than my antec 900 case fans.good luck, and update us. i think you should be able to hit 4ghz stable with any amount of ram. just ease up on it.

This is actually about 16 hours into folding. PPD is low because I also had my GPUs going for a while.

Ambient temp is 76F.

I agree and I've also tested multiple cpu samples. It seems that having a low "Request Vcore" (VID?) chip seems to result in a better OC. My highest was on a 2600K @ 1.265v which turned out to be my worst clocker. My lowest "Request Vcore" chip is on a 2500K @ 1.200v which to date is my best clocker. Now if I could only find a nice 2600K sample with ~ 1.200v or less!...

I think this is a safe setting. When doing some video trans coding max temp is 63. this was definitely a huge upgrade from my e6600. What sucks is the fact that i can't do OSX because of the sata 2 issue. O well. lets home newegg gets some new revisions motherboards soon, They extended my return until they arrive.
What is your batch# and BIOS "Request Vcore"?

nice, looks pretty stable to me

are you using LLC enabled or disabled? what's your offset or fixed set to in bios?
