    Mam, these new chips take a hell of alot of voltage for being 32nm.

    Asus maximus 3 formula...
    Don't you have issues with burning socket? M3F uses foxconn socket, and affected badly on Lynnfields >1.6v.

    I haven't heard of any MIIIF burning, just a few of the Gigabyte boards early on.

    Ow, you must be joking

    Read more..
    It was like this:
    http://www.xtremesystems.org/Forums/...&postcount=428

    And tonight I benched 8800GTX on LN using maximus 3 formula with Xeon 3470 (i7 870 server variant). Coz I already was "aware" about foxconn pos socket, I've neved fed more that 1.56V on cpu, CPU was cooled by LN2 to, at -60...-80°C. Only two cores was enabled,no HT (just wanted to push 3d03/05 and aquamark).

    Used rig ~6 hours nonstop, until 15L of LN2 was used. Working pefrect at 5GHz , tested only 3dmarks and aquas, no heavy loads like 3d06/vantage/wprime's etc...

    Powered rig off , left defrosting. and after some time - pull off CPU to see how are socket. And f**k, it's burned.

    Will take and post photos tomorrow, and also check if rig still operable. Will never again go 1156/ nor asus. Tired of crap hardware.

    Also Boards with Lotes-socket burned down at stock clocks and default voltages... In germany we call it "panikmache" - pure panicmongering

    Prooflink? You know, burning 500$ CPU and 300$ mobo coz of sux socket by different serious ocers is not just "you idiot, it's your fault" deal.

    Coldbug around -100c, corrupted a hard drive also and was worried about the socket burning so I took it apart to check it. Socket looks fine.

    nice chip

    @TiN_EOF:
    just my two cents...

    to me it's only a question of luck, i used an MSI P55-GD60 with foxconn socket for many hours under SS and LN2, vcore was always higher than 1.6 volt and VQPI always higher than 1.6 but none of the PIN was melted.
