    Nice! Please keep us informed of their progress.



    Supposedly on the eVGA X58 SLI, the S3 bug at 183+ BCLK is hardware related and cannot be fixed via software. The classified fixed this issue.

    I have used the P6T Deluxe and the eVGA X58 and both do not S3 correctly. The Asus will go into S3 once per boot and the eVGA won't do S3 above 180 BCLK.

    Yeah... I agree entirely. Its almost not worth it just to have that extra 200mhz. I've been through 4 chips that won't do 4Ghz reliably, but all did 3.8 with ease. That chip you have is better than...

    With HT off temps go down drastically, which may allow for more overclocking headroom. With that said, I still couldn't get 4GHz stable on it even with 1.4v. Hopefully you'll have better luck than...

    I've tried up to 2.1V on PLL and 1.5V on the VTT (QPI/DRAM). Lowest mem dividers as well. I'm going to sell a couple of these chips and buy a good watercooling setup and see if that helps me any.

    Working on it! I can boot vista with 1.25v, getting it prime stable is another thing. When temps hit mid 80's I get BSOD even at 1.35v. Using Noctua air cooler.

    Can you go into sleep mode more than once in one session (i.e. without rebooting)? Your board is the P6T with PCI-X slots right? Thanks.
