Tried 200bclk 19x multi, did not work at all... Changed only that bclk and multi, and checked that ram works at 1600mhz.

Now im Prime95 testing my earlier settings.

So far prime stable, had to up vCore to 1.16 and QPI/VTT 1.2.
1x GENTLE 1800rpm


2x TY140S 1300rpm
12celsius lower VRM temps.




Changed 1xGentle 1800rpm to 2x TY140s, nice temp drop with 2x1300rpm fans redface.gif
And MOBO VRM seems to be bit cooler now smile.gif..
Im hearing some sort of coil whine from MOBO when prime testing...

TY140s


Gentle

Congrats. Well you'll need to run Prime95 for 24 to 48 hours straight. Not a few minutes \ hours then stop and restart. Also after that you'll have to hit the CPU hard with IBT v.254 [Maximum] for around 15 runs ensure stability. Then OCCT for awhile. Show proof as well.

For the coil whine you probably need to increase your vCore if the sound is near the CPU. That will probably resolve the issue. If it doesn't try to pinpoint the area.

I have an ecs x58b-a3 motherboard. It supports c0, b1, d0 steppings. It only specifically indicates support i7 and i7 extreme (i7 97x CPU's) on their website which was posted in 5/2010. with x5670 a B1 stepping, do you think my mobo will run the x5670? I have a chance to get a great deal on this CPU and i want to know if i can run it on my mobo. Please advise. thank you!

Great review!!!

After all the action you got lately what do you guys think about my new Xeon E3-1246V3 3.5 Ghz Quad / 3.9 @ Turbo, Z97 MSI motherboard and 32 Gb of G.Skill Trident X DDR3 2400 CL10 I got? biggrin.gif

Great review!!!

Thanks and thanks for reading. I'm going to be posting an extended review on my blog with more info regarding the X58 platform and the Xeons. I "think" it will work. I haven't seen any users running that board. It does support the 6-core i7-9xx EE so you'll have to take a gamble and let us know. I'm going to be updating the first post with a motherboard list of known working Xeons.

I like it. I'm personally never going back to Quad-Cores though.

I was thinking the same but that quad core is hella fast bud...

It worked on the mobo! I'm currently Prime testing with the following settings:

4.07 Ghz
1.280 vcore
vdimm 1.6v
cpu vtt 1.392

It's not stable unless I up the vtt that much. and this motherboard is pretty basic when it comes to overclocking features. it took me a few hours for it to even booth at that speed. i had to reset the BIOS several times.

One question though, I see people say set the uncore to 16x or 18x, however, my mobo shows uncore in Mhz, like 2133mhz, 2400mhz, etc. How is the uncore computed?
