    Tyrou - WR(s) Kentsfield K6700



    After playing with my X6800, I decided to change my benching cpu, and got my hands on a Kentsfield 2.66GHz, as everybody know here, it's a quadcore (two conroe E6700 dies on the same package), so 2.66 / 8M /1066 to use the usual intel notation.

    The only working (and with overclocking abilities) motherboard I have for now is an unmodded Intel D975XBX rev304, with the last official bios. Kenstfield is not officially supported (scheduled for Q1'07, so nothing weird here...) and the fsb crashes above ~270-275MHz. Fortunately my sample is fully unlocked, from 6x to ... i've tried 16x for now, and it works well, it seems that it's like the X6800 on this point.

    Nice results!

    The FSB crashes sounds a little unfortunate though. Didn't Viktor or Andre run a Kentsfield on a P5B board?

    thanks

    I'm sure it's a motherboard problem, Andre runs the same cpu over 304MHz fsb on his P5B, I have to repalce my badaxe by something else, or try to find a better bios

    nice ... 3dmark06 cpu score is yummy

    tried with just 2x1GB modules to see if you can go higher on fsb ?

    I tried with only two sticks, on different slots, even tried different brands, no way to change that

    I'll try to find another m/b

    Amazing scores! Running high multi and "low" FSB doesn't mean lower performance, so it's a nice way to get high clocks. Core speed is the important thing, the Core 2 Duo architecture isn't very bandwidht dependent.

    thanks

    ok, it may not be as bandwidth hungry as the netbursts were, but being stuck at a so low fsb is quite frustrating, I've turned the cascade off, and i'll try me other board (modded), maybe it will be slightly better.

    running at 10*430 would be so nice

    fully unlocked, no idea cause it's an early sample or if it will be an Xtreme Edition when it hits the retail market.

    bad news, my modded board is still dead, I'm stuck with the unmodded one for the weekend
