    4Way SLI with Asus X79 Rampage IV Extreme and 1650 core 3D11 single card !

    Lots poeple expect X79 SB-E will replace SB and Gulftown on each benchmark.

    After few months , I am dispointted about the margin of SB-E.

    Average cpu clock is around 5.2xG ~ 5.4xG Mhz.

    Memory controller has lots difference under air cooling.

    If u want to do Extreme benching under Ln2 , also have to check the ability of memory controller under cold.

    Chip will have CB and CBB issue with higher memory clock or timing . Some chips dont boot under cold even it can do 2500 memory on air cooing.

    The chips binning of SB-E becomes a combination game.

    With limited cpu speed , 3D11 and vantage are the only benchmark to do . PT and combine score are so high .

    Let's see what it can do.




    CPU : 3960X
    MB : ASUS X79 Rampage IV Extreme
    PSU : ANTEC HCP 1200 watts
    VGA : MSI GTX580 Lightning & ASUS GTX580 Matrix
    HDD : Kingston HyperX 240GB & Adata S599 128GB
    RAM : GEIL Evo Corsa 2400 CL9 2GBx4
    POT : Kingpin F1 CPU + FAT Gpu pot










    Single card result with MSI GTX580 Lightning .

    This is good card , but has performance bug low issue. But it can clock high .




    3Dmark11 , 1650core and 2650memory . over 13k finally... P13144





    Vantage , 1595core and 2600 memory . P48002

    5.52g CPU test score is same as 6.4g gulftown . So the performance on X79 is so good . Also easy to bench.











    Now , 4way is really tough benching . Need lots benching process .

    And the humidity is so high in Taiwan . The mist and fog is everywhere .

    I do 4-way benching with Shamino and Andre Yang. We really have "good time" there

    Especially one time we had big score . When we want to save it , then whole system reboot.

    We tried our best to do already . Hopes we can find other good cards to bench.














    3Dmark11 P27928






    3Dmark11 E32331






    Another 3Dmark11 E32950







    3Dmark11 X12264









    It is just beginning of X79 , let's push the score now !!

    Benching season again in the next few months .

    Cheers !

    Very nice Nick Andre & Shammy
    How many CPUs did you test?

    wow that was the best out of 100pcs?

    so looks like it's going to be hard for any 6ghz action?

    very very nice scores!

    Hmmm that does look like expected: smashing the multithreaded benches but not that high raw-mhz...hope we will see an increase in average clocks, thoose chips are too expensive for heavy binning ^^
    and considering my luck of sb, I won't touch this for a while I think.

    U have any pifast or quick 1m for the 2D junks of us?

    thanks a lot for sharing and infos

    btw: I feel like back in i7-965/975X days - clocks were around the same, good raw-potential but not enough raw-mhz ^^

    The board can do 4-way SLI without modding?

    Impressive scores Scary though that this is out of 100 chips. Looks like SB will live on a bit longer until this rumored new stepping pops up.

    3960X seems that have issue with prime .... a little bit struggling in the end ... timing is slower

    Nice job guys, that is awesome. I can only imagine how time consuming quad benching is. Did the "slow mode" help?

    If u have booting into OS issue , or ur temp is going down which is not cold enough and the clock u set is too high .... u can use slow mode to boot in with 12x ratio

    when ur temp is going to the number u wants . U can switch it back to normal clock !
