  1. TDU2 is not slow when cruising down the road at 180 plus through traffic and fallout 4 keeps you on your toes too. Granted neither one is run and gun, (maybe fo4 at times). Older games but good games, like fo3 and gta:sa.


    Heck, my first tv computer game was pong, then upgraded to intellivision. First computer games were Ripper (cool Blue Oyster Cult song Reaper), Zork Nemisis and Inquisitor and 11th Hour. Like over 20 years ago.

  2. Here's my results from Cinebench, ran cpu and gpu twice for good measure:


    CPU: <a href='http://i.imgur.com/die22n8' title=''><img src='http://i.imgur.com/die22n8.jpg' alt='' title='Hosted by imgur.com' /></a>


    GPU: <a <a href='http://i.imgur.com/lz1zWJH' title=''><img src='http://i.imgur.com/lz1zWJH.jpg' alt='' title='Hosted by imgur.com' /></a>


    Actually running Win 10 Home 64bit, dont know why test results say Win 8.


    P.S. Got rid of other links and got the right ones in. Got rid of photobucket and figuring out new one.

  3. Internet we both have the same weighted score 200. Big difference is video, I have 2783 to your 5355. Do not know why the big difference there.



    Also the last stat on the page: My video: 696 Yours: 1339


    Yet 3d: My 3D: 44153 Yours: 32525

  4. I've read and also found true that the i7-940 doesn't like even multipliers. It prefers the odd ones, e.g. 19, 21, 23.


    I have HT enabled when benching. It gives me a higher CPU and total score in Vantage but with a slightly less oc. With it turned off I can get an extra 200MHz and higher GPU score in Vantage but not a total score.


    Agree, it's not worth the extra heat when surfing and gaming. I keep it off then.

  5. Ram is too tight, set it to 8-8-8-24 <--- running under 25 is considered very tight. Also bring the ram voltage up to at least 1.65v


    Set the IOH voltage to equal the QPI voltage (1.40v)


    Set the CPU PLL Voltage to auto.


    Give the cpu voltage a shot at 1.40v


    See how this goes.


    Tried those settings and it was a no-go. Froze up during the cpu 1 test in vantage. Pretty much needs 1.44v to complete.


    I found my 24-7 sweet spot at 3.8GHz (23 x 166), CPU PLL at 1.90v, QPI/DRAM Core Voltage at 1.29v and CPU voltage at 1.29v with ram timings at 8-8-8-21-1N. When I type in 1.65 for ram voltage it sets at 1.66, so I just keep it at 1.64 and err on the side of safety. Runs cool and stable with no problems running any games I play......fo3, gta4, tdu, gta:sa, tw2008, fuel, fc2...

  6. For benching:


    Ai OC Tuner: X.M.P.

    CPU Ratio: 21

    Intel SpeedStep: Disabled

    BCLK Freq 200

    QPI/DRAM : DDR3-1603

    DRAM Timing: 8-8-8-21-1N

    CPU Voltage: 1.44

    CPU PLL Voltage: 1.96

    QPI/DRAM Core Voltage: 1.40

    DRAM Bus Voltage: 1.64

    Load-Line Cal: Enabled

    CPU Diff Amp: 800mV

    CPU Spread Spec: Disabled

    PCIE Spread Spec: Disabled

    The rest are set to AUTO


    Graphics cards are 800/965


    I can boot and game with CPU voltage at 1.38v, CPU PLL at 1.90 and QPI/DRAM Core at 1.38 with the above settings, but running benchmarks stress it a little to much.


    Oh, my i7-940 is a 'C0' revision, not a 'D0'.

  7. Running vantage temps top out in the high 70s to low 80s at 4.2GHz. Running my normal 3.8GHz they run my games in the mid 60s. Weird part is that it will run at 3.8GHz with vcore @ 1.29 but to get to 4.2GHz I have to jump to 1.44v.
