    That's very good - my last 920 D0 needed at least 1.5v for that with my P6X58D-E, and my current 920 D0 I'm not so sure about.

    This is my first Bloomfield on the R3E and (shamefully) I've been...

    It really depends what you want - there's no reason to "always" have the latest and best. I just upgraded to a better X58 board and CPU (in my sig) and I intend to keep this system for a couple of...

    I'm surprised he's not getting 90 GFlops with his mem/uncore - I got about 90.6 with lower uncore of 3700 and looser memory timings (8-9-8-24), with c-states off. Maybe needs more QPI or CPU volts,...

    The heat curve is definitely exponential though - whether it's because the CPU gets a lot hotter or the TRUE reaches its efficiency threshold I'm not sure. The 500MHz jump from 4GHz to 4.5GHz...

    It's true - I think although my 990X needs slightly higher volts than your uber-golden chips, it still runs remarkably cool on air. The 970 I had before had a better IMC than my current chip but it...

    Toasty!! Surely you can push for just another 28MHz :D :yepp: But that voltage is very impressive. :up:

    This is with CPU 1.349v (real) and QPI 1.334v (real); PLL still at 1.6v. Dropped uncore to 3550MHz and got 86.6 GFlops pretty consistently, but I'd really rather run my memory at its rated 2000MHz...

    It's unbelieveable how much cooler this CPU runs at 4.5GHz compared to 4.7GHz, and all at the expense of only 3 GFlops (90.6 down to 87.6). This time it's in our living room at 20C ambient and...

    I think I'm going to spend some time tweaking 4.5GHz because higher clocks are just too dang hot for this chip with air cooling, and tbh I'd be happier running it below 1.4v if possible, so 4.6GHz...

    Very nice chip zoson, and gratz on six cores at 5GHz with seriously crazy GFLops :up: Seems to have a better IMC than mine (which needs 1.368v BIOS for 3.7GHz uncore) but possibly a hair's breadth...

    Good thing about 4.5GHz is it's doable at room temp thanks to the low voltages, probably with max at about 85C which is fine by me on air cooling. The annoying thing about X58 is that better memory...

    As of now I will also be using both. :) I did more DMM testing with QPI LLC enabled and with 1.3000 set in bios, vdrop is only 9mV and vdroop a further 7mV, so 1.284 under load. Brilliant.

    So I stuck with 1502 (for the moment) and decided to do a bit of relatively tame IMC testing with 3200MHz uncore and 1600MHz 6-7-6-18-60-2T mem and I gotta say it's been a royal pain in the butt...

    Yes - "closed loop" water cooling. ;) 4.5GHz at 1.368v is very nice, but it doesn't look like you're stable - GFlops vary too much from 52-56. If the system is stable you should be getting less...
