The X58 isn't going to go down without a fight! It is still a viable & relevant performer in this day of the 6 & 7 series chipset mainboards. :lol_anim:

Not bad at all for not pushing it too hard, & being a so-called 'has been' platform. 6 Cores active, SLI, & 12GB RAM, Zalman CNPS9900 NT CPU cooler; [removed on user?s request]

Wow nice overclocking with X79A-GD65(8D) 3930k, HU16E :) So do you like Zalman 12x? Is it good enough??
I only manage 2500k up to 5.3ghz ^_^

Is your eyesight really that bad that you don't see this? Your rubbish posts are starting be very annoying.

Starting to sound a little harsh there, Henry...  Cut the guy some slack. :biggthumbsup:

C'mon guys... my E6600 five years later is still fourth on the percentage chart!  Step it up!

Took a 3770k Ivy on a Z68A-GD80(G3) as far as I dare on air cooling. It gets hot very quickly and begs for plenty of voltage when pushed much past the 4.4 - 4.6 range. A little disappointed to be honest. :undecided:

Wanted to test the OC ability of the P67A-GD65(B3) with the original Ivy 4.0 UEFI/BIOS and a Sandy CPU. The biggest problem encountered was the mandatory need to use a digital multimeter to verify voltages. Voltage checking and verification should always be done anyway. The difference between what is set in the BIOS for VCore and reality at the V-Checkpoints was a whopping 0.053v's.

To confirm it was not a fluke, decided to test a Sandy 2600k also. Many seem to have the most trouble with 2500k's, but unfortunately, I don't have one to try.

Must be because the one you did have is in my PC. :lol_anim:

Now that you own 100% of the Intel list are you done with fooling around with most of your OC testing? You "endeavored to persevere" and achieved your goal. :lol_anim:

Must be time for someone else to start bumping your OCs from the list. You also gave a few of them with their more exotic cooling a good run for their money in the 5000+ list with all of yours on air with the 9900 Zalman coolers.

Yes, it's definately time to declare retirement and turn the reins over to the next generation of MSI OC'ers with Z77's and beyond. This month marks 3 unbroken consecutive years as the forum's #1 Intel OC holder. If anyone would have told me it was possible for an old fart like me in a hobby room with visions of grandeur and a stack of off the shelf retail pc parts laying around could achieve this kind of success with air cooling, I would have laughed profusely. The Zalman CNPS 9900 series of CPU coolers are simply amazing.

Maybe if some improvements are incorporated into the future Gen3 CPU's, Ivy-II or Ivy-E, I might once again dabble in a limited bit of testing. ;)

At least now you can reduce your PC testing expenses somewhat and just get the newer releases of RAM for testing if you are still going to do that. At least that is much less costly than $500-$1000+ for some of those CPUs & MBs you've bought.

For P67's, for whatever the reason, they don't seem to benefit much from fast RAM. Z68 and X79 deserve a little exploration though.

Henry, you know how to unlock my tinkering and 'in the name of science' nature don't you! :nono:

It's a tough call to try and push a SB CPU to anything higher than what you have on air.

To be perfectly honest, the thrill and excitement of the OC challenge is lacking with the SB (Ivy and Sandy-E included) CPU's as they seem to frequency limit themselves out no matter how much voltage is cranked at them, so in many ways, anything other than air could be kind of a waste of time, money, and effort. Besides, there is some personal satisfaction beating out some of those exotic cooling solution OC'ers.  :rolleyes:  OC'ing as an art form actually began to seriously die with the introduction of the LGA 1366 X58's. Maybe the Ivy will offer a challenge to the D-Ice, LN2, or He3/4 crowd, but then again, probably only going to be small Mhz differences between the ones that top out. After taking three k series Sandy's to Intel's max multi limit, the only difference between them was a paltry 6 Mhz! The 'golden eggs' are extremely rare that will exceed Intel's factory set multi limits. The only way a true challenge will be reinstated is if Intel releases fully unlocked and unlimited retail CPU's again that go until they pop. ;)

What kind of misinformation are you spreading,  :nono:
Ivybridge can be overclocked a lot higher on water than air, a lot more on DI than water and again a lot more on LN2 than DI. Differences are in 300-500Mhz going from one type of cooling to another

Facts my man! Facts! Hands on experience! The ones I have worked with top out long before heat is even an issue. They multi limit out or require too much voltage for conventional cooling. Those of you that use exotic cooling solutions aren't even in the same league as us home pc builders that use standard recognized conventional air or non chilled water cooling. So, I stand by my comments which are meant for the home pc builder.

And stay at or below the recommended everyday CPU V. limit of 1.400v's? Water is going to make a difference? If people want to run their equipment higher than recommended specs for everyday, more power to them. :-))

Have fun with your D-Ice, LN2 and He3/4. Some of us actually do use our pc for some actual work after done fiddling around with them seeing what they can do. Must be nice to have backers and sponsors that give components to play with. :think:

:emot-tip-wink:

I read your PM and that spews some evil, you fall into the category who is jealous of everything and every1 around them it seems, I have been around Forums far long than you can imagine to know every forum has their own rule so I do not mind if a score I posted didnt make it to this list.

Now, what you state in this post is true, but you specifically mentioned DI, LN2 as well in your last post which makes that post incorrect and thats all I wanted you to correct on.

P.S. I have been in computers for the last 15 Years. After working as Server Admin, Exchange Admin, now I manage a team of DBAs for a Fortune 100 company. And I believe I do much more important work with my PC than you do, unless you specify what *Actual Work* you do with your PC after fiddling around.
