    3930K new stepping

    sup guys

    i read that jan 20th they start rolling the new stepping to customers, wonder if the egg will have them as they're outta stock only 3960X old stepping is

    do you think the 3930K's will be the new stepping or they may mix them ?

    cheers

    This is the reason,I am not jump yet in X79.
    I will wait until mobo chipset and CPU get new stepping.

    Can anyone give me factual info as to what this new stepping will increase? Will it perform better? What's the difference? If it's just that Vt-d thing I could care less...

    As far as anyone knows, it is JUST "that Vt-d thing". I think the optimistic people are just waiting to see reviews in hopes that the new chips somehow do something magical. I'll keep my fingers crossed for their sake.

    From what I heard the new stepping can play Starcraft 2 on grandmaster level. And yeah 7GHz of course.
    The things:
    1. Core i7 2600k@4.5 HTon 1.28v Corsair H50 cooling
    2. Asus Maximus IV Extreme B3 [bios-1303]
    3. 2xPalit GTX570 Sonic @ stock clocks[SLi]
    4. Tagan PipeRock 800W
    5. 8Gb(2x4Gb) G.Skill RipjawsX Red 1866MHz 9-10-10-27, 1.65v.
    6. Raidmax Platinum Case
    7. SSD Intel G2 80Gb + 1Tb WD 7200

    I'm a bit out of the loop on SB-E stuff. Did they ever sort the PCIe 3.0 transceiver problems?
    Particle's First Rule of Online Technical Discussion:
    As a thread about any computer related subject has its length approach infinity, the likelihood and inevitability of a poorly constructed AMD vs. Intel fight also exponentially increases.

    Rule 1A:
    Likewise, the frequency of a car pseudoanalogy to explain a technical concept increases with thread length. This will make many people chuckle, as computer people are rarely knowledgeable about vehicular mechanics.

    Rule 2:
    When confronted with a post that is contrary to what a poster likes, believes, or most often wants to be correct, the poster will pick out only minor details that are largely irrelevant in an attempt to shut out the conflicting idea. The core of the post will be left alone since it isn't easy to contradict what the person is actually saying.

    Rule 2A:
    When a poster cannot properly refute a post they do not like (as described above), the poster will most likely invent fictitious counter-points and/or begin to attack the other's credibility in feeble ways that are dramatic but irrelevant. Do not underestimate this tactic, as in the online world this will sway many observers. Do not forget: Correctness is decided only by what is said last, the most loudly, or with greatest repetition.

    Rule 3:
    When it comes to computer news, 70% of Internet rumors are outright fabricated, 20% are inaccurate enough to simply be discarded, and about 10% are based in reality. Grains of salt--become familiar with them.

    Remember: When debating online, everyone else is ALWAYS wrong if they do not agree with you!

    Random Tip o' the Whatever
    You just can't win. If your product offers feature A instead of B, people will moan how A is stupid and it didn't offer B. If your product offers B instead of A, they'll likewise complain and rant about how anyone's retarded cousin could figure out A is what the market wants.

    what PCi-E 3.0 transceiver problems? i heard their only problem is that they didn't have time to get it PCISIG certified?

    I heard 200blck but it is just a rumor. I think maybe they will seem as if they OC higher, beucase most people havemn't bought CPus either b/c they are sold out or just too expensive. Most results on are ES and if retails haven't thought us anything is that they are clocking better than most ES CPUs, just not many people have them. I mean look at the WR is sitting on top of basically as ES submissions and some retails that are very high up like Loud's. BTW Newegg is not getting more until C2, it isn't just that they are out of stock for a little while, Intel ran out of CPUs which was part of the plan. I remember massman put a post up saying showing some high 167blck on a CPU, which everyone thought was C2, idk if it was C2, but it used the MSi bangbang and it has a modified clock gen to allow higher BLCk. it really idk what you really want 1.67 multiplier at that high for, other than maybe it could be a sweet spot, but BLCk dividers are good for memory speed, and i would think 1.25 and 24x and 107blck would be enough for most, but using 1.67 is nice too. if All C2 CPUs have better BLCk that would be nice, but i don't think they will. i think maybe their silicon quality might be higher, maybe intel has worked on the leakage to lower some temps. Intel needs to start working on leakage tho, for real as if they don't on the next CPU they release it will be crazy lol.

    i just want they can do 5GHz HT on reasonable load volts, dont care about them as i will not bench just game etc, hope i get a decent batch

    thanks for your reply sin

    they will run at high watts man, no way to get around that, maybe C2 has some better thermals, but otherwise you need a very nice watercooler to get 5ghz load stable, IMo at least you need something that can handle a 250W load.

    I think Andressergio is more concerned about getting 5ghz on reasonable voltage (at or near max intel spec) for 24/7 more so than temps, he has good cooling.

    Im running this chip at 4.7ghz, the difference between 4.7 and 5ghz for normal use is not going to be noticeable at all. For most of what I do default is plenty, just boring.

    my watercooler can handle it perfect as i wont bench or put linx or prime on it, as i say i will just game and adjust till i get stable, same i did with my nice 2600k, i have the chance to test some chips and i probed that this lit beasts can go high and high but once you start pumping volts they degrade and to do 5GHz again will requiere lots of volts, so i decided to test that way

    thanks OC Nub thats exactly what i want, i saw your chip can do it easy thats what i just want, play heavy games so any problem of stability will show up easy

    Maybe with the new stepping, we will end up with some soon-to-be-obsolete Xeon E5s by the summer...

    I say soon-to-be-obsolete because the E5 will be behind the curve once mainstream Ivy comes out...
    Server: HP Proliant ML370 G6, 2x Xeon X5690, 144GB ECC Registered, 8x OCZ Vertex 3 MAX IOPS 240GB on LSi 9265-8i (RAID 0), 12x Seagate Constellation ES.2 3TB SAS on LSi 9280-24i4e (RAID 6) and dual 1200W redundant power supplies.
    Gamer: Intel Core i7 6950X@4.2GHz, Rampage Edition 10, 128GB (8x16GB) Corsair Dominator Platinum 2800MHz, 2x NVidia Titan X (Pascal), Corsair H110i, Vengeance C70 w/Corsair AX1500i, Intel P3700 2TB (boot), Samsung SM961 1TB (Games), 2x Samsung PM1725 6.4TB (11.64TB usable) Windows Software RAID 0 (local storage).
    Beater: Xeon E5-1680 V3, NCase M1, ASRock X99-iTX/ac, 2x32GB Crucial 2400MHz RDIMMs, eVGA Titan X (Maxwell), Samsung 950 Pro 512GB, Corsair SF600, Asetek 92mm AIO water cooler.
    Server/workstation: 2x Xeon E5-2687W V2, Asus Z9PE-D8, 256GB 1866MHz Samsung LRDIMMs (8x32GB), eVGA Titan X (Maxwell), 2x Intel S3610 1.6TB SSD, Corsair AX1500i, Chenbro SR10769, Intel P3700 2TB.

    Thanks for the help (or lack thereof) in resolving my P3700 issue, FUGGER...

    what comes yesterday today is obsolet and sold by 40% less money...its just a matter of taste and btw Ivy wont be hexacore...

    but as i say this thread is just to talk about if C2 stepping will be on stock soon and no mixed with older stepping
