I picked up an old Dell/Alienware/ MSI board and will use it to overclock an X5687 25nm 4C/8T chip because i don't think it will OC a 6C/12T very well. Maybe if I make it easier on the VRM it will work OK.

I never had one of their motherboards, but I did start with a MSI GTX 260 Twin Frozr graphics card in my X58 build. The cooling was impressive, I would hit 55C while gaming, even after overvolt and overclock.

EDIT: i just went and looked up older runs, i found one in Jan 2019 on win10 where my performance is decent but still lower scored 20409 on the same cpus ram mobo and a vega 64. then when i ran it in march on a 1080ti i was down to 19480 cpu score...... so i wonder if this is right around the time the new windows revisions rolled out.
It is the spectre and meltdown patches disable them and run Firestrike again.

QPI is set it its minimum value at 4.8GT, CPU multiplier is 20, blck is 180. I'm unable to change the uncore ratio because its forced to auto and the option is greyed out. 1800mhz translate to a uncore of 3.6Ghz so its at a 1 to 1 ratio with the cpu clock.

You can see that memory ratio is unlocked and changing it does affect uncore but 3 is the smallest value I'm able to use there.
