Ehh Striker II Extreme...I had massive problems running that board higher than stock. It seemed it's like a mine field or a maze puzzle... biggrin.gif My EVGA 790i was much easier to overclock. I remember 790i being much faster than 780i in terms of SLI performance.

I gave the S2E it to my brother and he's got a QX6850 running with it at stock. Been good for 3 years or so now. Looking forward to getting it back sooner or later to play with it again.

i9-7980XE / Asus Rampage VI Extreme / Corsair Dominator Platinum 64 GB 3200 MHz CL16-18-18/ Asus Strix 1080TI SLI / Intel 750 NVME / Samsung 1TB / Corsair AX1500i / Phanteks Enthoo Primo / Asus PG279Q

They can be tricky, but IMHO the Striker II Extreme is heavenly for overclocking. My XFX 790i on the other hand, now that's a picky board (and I managed to get a Q9550 @ 4.5Ghz on that board). Once you get the right base settings in the BIOS tweaked the ability to narrow down stable settings are sometimes tedious but you can get there.

I actually just UPGRADED my CPU in this same board biggrin.gif

Went with the 771 MOD Xeon x5470 @ 4.5+ (still tweaking and finding the max overclock). You can't beat the price, has a 10x multiplier, plus it is definitely an extreme mod so it was FUN! I installed the adapter, cut out the slots in my socket and even had to upgrade the microcode in my BIOS but in the end, it is ALIVE! biggrin.gifthumb.gif

4563 is Prime95 stable too.. Still going higher wink.gif
PS. Under load voltage droops to 1.504v


Temps are decent considering how much voltage it is getting.

Well, im not rocking a 790i, but still pushing along with 775. biggrin.gif. About to get a new GPU to help keep me going this year. Hopefully a new rig next year.

Id have probably gotten into SLI if i had a 790i board though... :/

Im starting to feel like a dying/rare breed, still gaming with a 775 setup. biggrin.gif

What kind if GPU usage do you get with these Core 2 Quads on 980 SLI?! Lol

Nice modding! Second best part is your 4k performance is top of the line.
My delidding feels so vanilla now.
I had bad voltage droop in my gpus and upgraded the power supply. The new one had more "bite" than I expected. I was putting up to 1.3v into my 780tis benching with the old one (input went from 12.36 to 11.86v under load)
to having the cards only able to handle about 1.15v (input from ~12.2 to ~12.05) under the new one.
The cards performance increase was nearly negligible but they do run cooler.
I think it is a lot easier to toast my rig with that new ps.
Just thought I'd put that out there.
New and old ps are in my pics.

Thanks guys!

I've been a bit busy since my last post wink.gif




I can't speak much yet.. Jaw won't close thumb.gif

I am not even done yet! LMAO (Although I don't expect to get much more)

The devil made me do it! devil.gif (5666 score)





Holy Cow!
This architecture is 7 years old. Not all that long ago 7 years was the difference between the original Pentium and the Pentium 4 tongue.gif

I am just amazed at the value here.. ...and I can't brag because everyone else's rig would best this one (lol biggrin.gif) but this architecture doesn't owe me ANYTHING tongue.gif.

I just have to share because this really is something special.

EDIT: RAM is stable. Passes MemTestx86 also. This is REALLY fast for 8GB. The chipset only officially supports this speed with 4GB (2 sticks). Test took 2.5 hours to complete.



I just smashed my previous record! tongue.gif

It's been a while, still beating the crap out of this x5470. GTA V has consumed me and I may legally change my name to Trevor tongue.gif

I'm seriously thinking of putting a couple GTX 980Ti's in! I'm helping MOD a BIOS for one and I'm getting jelly. I don't believe I will be reaching my PCI-e bandwidth limit either. thumb.gif

Haha!
Intel probably hates me but it is what it is..

Dang man, this is pretty impressive!

I love the fact you are jamming 1.55v into that thing, and its still running that low.

Got any pics / build log of your PC?

I assume you are on water?

When @ load it droops down to roughly 1.5ish. I never tried more than that. I assume I could squeeze a little more out of the CPU but at this point the returns have diminished and its not worth the extra heat/risk. I have to tell you, the Xeon X5470's overclock like a dream.. I've got over 4.7Ghz at that voltage. I've never experienced a CPU O/C like this before. It seems they are all just better silicon unless I'm just lucky. Others with this mod seem to have similar success.

I just sold the QX9770 (to pay for the Xeon.. plus $150 in my pocket and it blows the QX9770 away. The x5470 has a 10x multiplier which means it is ALMOST an unlocked CPU. I've never needed to use anything higher than 10x on an overclock anyway because I like pushing the bus speed thumb.gif)

Yup water cooled (2015 gear), 2 loops. One for CPU one for GPU and chipset. I have a couple pics posted in my profile here. I should take some good ones, I think there's only 2 pics I posted (with/without flash) so you can check them out if you'd like. The Swiftech H240-X/H140-X (and others) have a socket 775 option. You have to order it seperately it doesn't come in the box.

If you 775 folks out there thought you couldn't use that cooler, YES YOU CAN biggrin.gif

If I may quote this article:
link (Click to show)
"The new enthusiast chipset for SKylake is dubbed Z170. It maintains dual channel memory support with up to four dims in total. Z170 will also support a whopping number of USB ports. 14 in total, 10 of which are USB 3.0 and 4 are USB 2.0. USB 3.1 support is still missing unfortunately, so board makers will have to resort to using their own controllers if they want to enable it.

The Z170 chipset will also support six SATA 6Gbps ports and 20 lanes of PCI express connectivity. Z170 boards will also feature three SATA Express x2 interfaces in addition to four M.2 interfaces. mSATA will not make a return in Z170.

All in all Skylake seems to be more of an evolutionary step rather than a revolutionary one. Both in terms feature-set and performance. I can’t believe that it’s been almost eight years since quad cores were introduced, 9 years since dual core CPUs were introduced. And we’re still limited to quad core/module eight thread offerings at the mainstream level from both Intel and AMD. Intel doesn’t seem keen on changing that with Skylake, let’s hope AMD has different plans for Zen."



---

Look at all these CPUs and all the different chipsets we've been through.
Sandy Bridge
Ivy Bridge
Ivy Bridge-E
Haswell
Haswell-E
Broadwell

Broadwell-E and Skylake now

Skylake is next - and you'll NEED A NEW SOCKET YET AGAIN!

Releasing a new CPU with a new chipset making everyone buy a new motherboard and probably new CPU coolers too.. WHY?!? What's so special? It certainly isn't more USB ports (whoopie do) and they are not even USB 3.1.. 20 PCI-e lanes?!? ARE YOU KIDDING US INTEL?!?! mad.gif

What's the selling point here? This smell of another Devil's Canyon trick.. mad.gif

This is in-line with what I've been saying in this thread. Wasting our time and money with "new technology" that we don't want, don't need, didn't ask for.
Intel is DOING IT OVER AGAIN. Selling us a 20 lane PCI-e chipset, just so they can sell us ANOTHER new socket and chipset that has more next year. How many times are we going to play this same PCI-e lane game Intel?1

I need an upgrade, I'm ready for an upgrade.. I am willing to spend money on an upgrade and get new technology.. Where is it?

As I said at the beginning of this thread, Moore's law...
