It has more potential with the higher stock frequency, but you're still playing the silicon lottery. What's nice about the W series is the CPU multi is unlocked, and it can use higher RAM multiplier.

That seems really high voltage for 4GHz

What throttling are you seeing?

Okay I was running 1.35V which I thought was stable but it crashed after 2 hrs of gaming, increased it and stable so far, I'm seeing 85C full load, idk why my chip needs so much voltage though.

Could be just luck of the draw, or possibly other factors. I had a 965xe and a 970 and both pretty much topped out at 4.1-4.2. Both needed 1.35 for 4.1. And I think my 970 needed closer to 1.5v for 4.2. Great chip but terrible core and uncore clocks. I think it didn’t like more than 3200. This was on a UD5, I moved to a Rampage III Formula and x5690 shortly after. I wouldn’t mind a W series hexacore because I have a few sets of sweet Hypers, BBSE, and PSC but could never take advantage of with the x5690. Those Hypers are as flexible as a gymnast. Love em.

X58 is sort of an art to overclock. Make sure your uncore is 2x the RAM multiplier, PLUS one. So for 8x, make it 17x. (8 * 2 + 1). Then change uncore voltage to at least 1.355v. Make ICH core 1.16v. Try CPU PLL 1.8v, 1.86v, 1.9v.

CPU clock drive 800mV
PCIE clock drive 900mV

QPI PLL 1.16V


turn off SpeedStep and all that crap. Finally, disable hyperthreading, as I get higher benchmarks that way

I'm doing 20x200 right now, cant go over 200 bclk, cant go to x22 either, it needs more than 1.55v to boot at that point or it will BSOD, any ideas?

Sounds like it was chip someone pushed to the limits before you got it rather than one that was pulled from a sever a few years ago and just left on shelve till someone bought it. That's my guess anyway as you just have to read through both the threads on these chips and see everyone can push higher than 4GHz.

Or just a really bad chip. Who knows.

Okay I cheaped out on the chip, is $35 for a W3680 a good price? Is it a good Overlocker?

That's a good deal. I paid roughly the same for mine around May (IIRC ebay ~40 list, I offered $35, had a $3 ebay promo, then with tax I paid ~$35). IIRC it was the cheapest USA listing on ebay for a W3680 in months at the time.

Cheapest on ebay from a North American seller right now looks like ~$50 USD.
