  1. I've somewhat eyeballed the V10. Whats with the Hybrid TEC? Also do you think a set of these G.Skill Tridents would fit under the ram cooler part?




    There are VERY mixed review on this cooler. I find it to be pretty nice...


    And no only low profile memory will work...i had to work around that...



    suprising how much the price has jumped on these...these were 180 and i got them on sale for 155...and now they are $200...hmmm



    Stock Intel HSF:

    Posted Image


    You are seriously playing with the intel stock cooler? what has this world come to? hahah...thats with no load...i bet the temps soar above 100(load) for the stock cooler...haha
  2. Yeah, I did water before I got the vapo.


    Too much maintenance. :lol:


    Thats why i never went water...seems like too much maintaining...haha


    I think youll be happy with the cooler...


    When i started putting together my setup i noticed asus was nice enough to drill the 775 socket mounting holes so i used it rather than taking a few minutes to change to the 1366 brackets...haha :rolleyes:


    Anyways...looking forward to seeing what happens with the extreme edition and that cooler....they always seem to run a little hotter than the standards..

  3. 60c at 100% load for an i7 is coooool :lol:


    these i7's are hot mf's. ;)




    edit:- my temps on water with an oc of 3.8ghz


    stress test was 40minutes of prime95


    core0 :- low 39 high 65 immediately after stress test 45c

    core1 :- low 37 high 62 immediately after stress test 42c

    core2 :- low 39 high 63 immediately after stress test 45c

    core3 :- low 35 high 59 immediately after stress test 40c


    best air cooler i think for an i7 :- http://www.crazypc.com/products/prolimatec...lem-508600.html


    Thats how my temps are at 4.0ghz with the case side off...but then again i have a good chip

    about 5-8 deg more with the side on... :P

  4. My box is down right now so I don't have any screen shots, but to get my RAM up to 2000+ MHz I need to drop the RAM multi and raise the BCLK in order to have an option to keep QPI around 4 GHz. Although the P6T bios offers much higher choices, I have not been able to boot any of them.


    Each motherboard seems to have a few different options. I can't get the BCLK over 200 unless I drop the RAM speed, and by extension the QPI, down quite a bit. Even then, the highest BCLK I've gotten is 209.


    There is also some good stuff here:




    Yea...it seems like going over 200bclk is the only problem i have yet to figure out with these boards.


    I hit 200x21 and 200x20 and everything goes well....anything over i really have to play around with settings just to get it booted up but nothing is stable yet....

  5. I have the coolermaster v10....I dont know that it makes much of a difference but i used the Coolermaster Thermalfusion 400 paste...


    It was designed for the v8/v10 coolers....


    I get about 40C/70C...idle/load at 4.0ghz w/ 1.20v....


    and according to all the reviews the v8 has the same performace as the v10...

  6. So i guess timings were too tight?


    I had to jump from 7-7-7-20 and anything over 4.0 i jumped to 9-9-9-24....i hit the MEMOk button on the motherboard and let the motherboard choose a failsafe setting for the memory...and it booted up


    http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=783543 :tup:


    Also upped the NB voltage to 1.25

    and the QPI/DRAM to 1.4



    Are ATI boards naturally bad at 2d scoring? :P





    Hmm...maybe its not the ram timings....i just set it to 8-8-8-24 and it booted...one of the things i was playing with is a factor.... :unsure:





    Trying to get past 4.4 is proving to be my next challenge...

  7. Set it up to 210x20


    QPI/DRAM set in increments between 1.45-1.5...starts to boot up then freezes right before it gets to windows boot screen...didnt want to set it any higher...since it is considered in the yellow zone according to the book.


    I had my CPU upped to 1.25 and still nothing past BIOS screen...


    my current CPU @ 4 ghz is 1.20....so i still have a huge amount of headroom...just got me so stumped...

  8. Have you bumped up the north bridge voltage?


    Do you have the Asus Turbo V installed?


    The only way i can get over 200 BCLK on the P6T is to boot at 192 and use Turbo V for the rest of it. Even then it will only go to 215, and that's if I drop the multi.


    You can also try playing around with the clock skew a little. Does that board have vdroop? Mine clocks much better with load line calibration enabled.


    Also, take look here:




    bumped the IOh NB and SB both to 1.2


    No asus turboV


    Line Load is enabled


    really getting urked...its never been this much of a problem to overrclock before.. :pullhair:


    CPU skew is set to 200 (just to play around)

    IOK+H skew i set to 100(just to mess around)


    Still not getting much response

  9. mmmm :pullhair:


    ok. not that then.



    oc from cpu level up


    oc from memory level up


    in your bios?


    i see they are both set at auto, have you tried setting them at manual?


    also disable turbo power limit.


    but to be honest i'm out of idea's why it won't even post when the bclk is raised higher than 200, was sure it would be down to the ram and uncore. :shrug:




    CPU level up is overclocking to i7 940/ 960 specs.


    Memory level up is clocking memory to DDR3-1200/1600/2000 and setting bclk respectively... :cr@sh::pullhair:


    Im stumped too...it went directly from 2.6 to 4.0 when i started it up...but anymore it seems to just stop. ARGGGG





    QPI is set to auto...but has been set from 1.25-1.35

  10. last time i'm going to say this... :rofl2:


    with a bclk over 200 you need to lower the ram multi or/and higher the uncore so it's running at least 2x the ram speed. ;)




    i actually tried under clocking the ram...



    CPU is set 210x20


    So its set at DDR3-1263

    UCLK is at 2526

    and tried 2736(more than 2x)






    @ DDR3-1683

    UCLK @ 3368 no response


    This board doesnt do multipliers...it sets actual values...


    and i still hit a wall..it wont even boot up like it should...it will sit there with no response and no output to the monitor

  11. try a lower multi something like 15x for the cpu for higher bclk than 200, if it still doesn't post i'd think it's definitely a memory/uncore setting somewhere that needs adjusting.



    edit:- your on air so i'd think those temps are about right. :tup:


    with the standard heatsink and fan my temps were well over 90c at 100% load even with a mid overclock like 3.6ghz


    hmmm...yea i tried that...15x215...still no boot...



    i switch something...and i think the voltages will suprise you... :P:shifty:...


    Currently stress testing it....will post after 10+ minutes of stress testing...
