    guys you are all my friends here and I value your opinions. what do you guys think of sandy bridge? Is it fun? From what Ive seen I see more people looking at batch numbers and hitting walls because they dont come alive in the cold like their intel predecessors. it kinda left a bad taste in my mouth. is the memcontroller way better than clarksdale? for example I have a i5 655k that does 5.8ghz on ln2 but mem clocks are around 2000 at 6-9-6. so now I go and buy a 2500k and and 159.00 board and hit 5.1 ghz if im lucky with a container on the cpu and ice cubes and water in the pot at 10c and then I have it maxed out and ive done every bench I could with it and it goes into my 24 /7 gaming rig which I already have a 1366 x3540 and sabertooth x58 at 4.3ghz. it seems like a very short lived thrill just because its new hardware and because there is no jump in clocks with cold then its like okay great I have this setup that does 5ghz on air and I can run ddr3 at 2100 at 7-9-7- timings but is it even going to matter? its a 24/7 rig at the end of the day and where is the fun in that?

    trans am - the memory controller is WAY better than in Clarkdale. You may hit the same memory clocks but Sandy Bridge will get three times less latency and 80% better bandwidth at the same clocks.

    Msimax picked up a 2600K chip.

    L042B208 = 5.3, DI full pot testing revealed no cold issues. Blck testing = about 106 still 5.3 limit. Multi limit 53X.

    Guess that batch can swing one of 2 ways with the trends i see, either it goes down to 5.1 or up to 5.5.......

    I have tried two so far, my best was also a L042B208 @ 5.3 ht off on UD5, also from microcenter.
    I wonder if I could get higher on the P8P67 with higher bclock.
    Trying now but for some reason with the latest bios I am locked at 3.4, odd
    Could also be user error, haven't tweaked on asus in a long while and this new bios is so different from gigabyte.

    ^^show some respect. if you want pics of chicks go browse some :banana::banana::banana::banana:o sites. If you want to welcome a new xs member do it in a way that shows some dignity and respect.
    if name gt and safe disk are her pals then I would probably think twice before posting comments like that one. what the hell?

    steve your pc mark scores are insane btw. chew knows the asus board inside and out. he can help. I am watching name gt and pccriminal on the biostar and its just amazing what is possible on that thing. Chew said msimax from new york had no cold issues on dice but I dont think cold is the issue on sandy bridge. the issue is the gains in clocks from sorta cold to xtreme cold is pathetic.

    with asus you need to use the turbo cores not the main multi.

    Very good, yes I tried that and many other things, reset via jumper, pull battery-reset, different ps, different vga, single stick of mem.

    Still can't come off of 34 multi - it might still be user error but I am beginning to wonder.

    So a few screen shots to show what i am seeing.
    As an easy example, i just set system performance to "performance in the EZ mode - (this same probelm happens when I set everything manually also, i am using ez mode just for this example).

    See screen shot 1, then after reboot, i go into the bios and looke at Ai Tweaker.

    In screen shot 2 - windows should set cpu speed to 4429.

    Finally look at XPx32 screen shot - screenshot 3.
    TurboV says I should be at 43x but clearly under linx load i remain at 34x

    Anyone have any idea what is going on?

    screenshot 1




    screenshot 2




    screenshot 3

    Steve, did you have TurboV installed in windows before you started overclocking? Reason I ask is because I had a similar issue after installing TurboV.
