i7-980x 6ghz on air 57c full load!  

post #1 of 141
Thread Starter 
I recently got my hands on the i7980x Batch 3018B341
Instead of keeping it, i sold it on ebay to make some money.
I did my research on this batch and saw that people reached 5ghz easy just using 1.4 cpu volt. as much as i want to keep it, i needed the money for something else so i let it go.

I contacted the buyer that bought it and he told me that he couldnt believe how easy it was to overclock, thanking me... he said he reached 6ghz with only 57c on full load on air
this is copied and pasted from the convo we had recently

"To be honest, I cannot overclock the 980X with Asus Sabertooth till 5GHz but I managed to do 6GHz with Asus Rampage III Black Ed. See?

The memory used is also vital. I used the Dominator GT DDR3-2000 v2.1 Elpida chips 8-8-8-24... together with Asus Rampage III Black Ed.

I never used water cos it's so troublesome and my CPU is only mid tower. Also, I am satisfied with using Coolermaster Hyper 212+ with 57 celsius full load at 6GHz , guess what, I used Artic Silver as thermal paste."


My question is, is this possible? i havent got a answer from his as far as how long he stressed his cpu and what stress test he used but the fact that he was able to post and stress test and checked to see his highest temps was 57c at load is just incredible.

Theres no reasons for him to lie to me but i have yet to find anyone who did this. please let me know if you have found similar encounters.

I call Shenanigans.

Edit: I was able to run a suicide run with 5.2ghz but temps got crazy high and I shut it down immediately. 6ghz on air at 57C is ludicrous.

What does living in Singapore have to do with him lying? Infact that would suggest even more BS.. Singapore has really really high ambient temps

Unlikely, he probably wants you to make an offer for it back after hearing this
post #9 of 141
Not possible. I have not seen that many at 5 let alone 6 and definitely not on air. There's no way he wold get temps like that with just a cm212.

it would be hard to believe even if he used a performance cpu cooler such as the megahalem or even the h70 but using that piece of crap fan, i dont know how he could have done this. and what amazes me is the fact that he would spend 600 on a black edition mobo and almost a grand on the cpu only to use the hyper212? am i being unreasonable?
