Nice!! The club for CPUs with 50% more cores than LGA1156.

... and I'm in [MENTION=5]5150 Joker[/MENTION] :P :p

If only you could OC xeons then someone could make an 8 core thread to 1 up you guys. They have 5MB more cache too.

@svl7 who knows sometime later this year you might see me sporting a 4930K :D

Damn, can't remember my last settings, now it always crashes... Oh well, back to tuning I guess :D

Dual X5690 on SR2 here. 4500MHz since May 2011. Very stable. Will OC considerably higher for gaming/benchmarking but not truly stable (may get computation errors every 30 hours or so at 4.66, for example whereas 4.5 is stable for months of 100% crunching, etc.) EK HF supreme CPU blocks, MIPS SR2 chipset cooler (Cu/Delrin), 2 Titans at 1202/3333 cooled with EK copper/acetel blocks. (NO NICKEL CRAP!) Running Areca ARC 1880 series SAS hosts with a mixture of enterprise SSDs and mechanical disks. Dual Antec HCP1200W PSUs with wiring to turn both on as well as a pressure system to call for cooling pump. System in its own chassis with external water cooling system comprised of four MORA3 pro (9x140) rads, Iwaki RD30 pump at 24V, each radiator has its own 450ml reservoir feeding into a parallel balancing manifold which feeds the suction eye of the pump. Flow measured at 5 liter/min through all this stuff. Tubing is 1/2" ID Norprene held with SS breeze clamps. Is that enough? :P

How did you overclock that CPU? I thought people couldn't get BCLK straps working on Xeons?

If things have changed then someone give me $4k+ so I can start the 8 core club

Westmere Xeons are unlocked up to stock multi. The only board that allows this exploit is EVGA's SR2. Did not see the point of the SRX though as those processors are locked. It's possible to get around the lock on Westies moving forward by using C1E and it will swing to 26 on all cores under load but I've had the best luck with the 25X multiplier and just adjust baseclock as needed. It's a pretty sick setup and 12 westy cores at 4.5GHz is nothing to sneeze at even for a two year old system!

Oh I thought your CPUs were sandy bridge based. Hard to find out fast on intel arc. The old sspec website was far more informative.

Still a pretty impressive system though, but it's sad to hear that intel's best CPUs still cannot be overclocked.

using a 3960X 4.5G (occasionally to 5.3G for benching and some game) on ASUS ROG R4E, since the SNB-E don't support PCI-E 3.0, it cause many compatibility problems with the new generation PCI-E 3.0 VGA cards. a trick to solve the problem is to set all the PCI-E lane from PCI-E 3.0 to PCI-E 2.0 in BIOS configuration. that will solve the occasionally happening "black screen in boot process" . hope that will help you guys

Hello,

I am a 3930k owner. 4.2GHz at 1.34v, I just do not want to go any higher because of what I have encountered. Let me explain why, when I use processor stress testing software (Intel Burn Test, Prime) everything is fine at first. Temps are 68 C with 150 Watts, but after some seconds the wattage jumps to 200-210 Watts. I have done some reading I believe that it is to prevent voltage drop. But the problem is that my temps rocket to 75-80 C when the cpu uses 200 watts... Under less demanding tests and games there are no wattage jumps like this and the temps are stable. I want to squeeze some more performance out of the CPU, but I want to ask should I? and how? Maybe there is a solution to the voltage drop problem.

Here are some basic specs:

Custom water cooling.

Ram: Quad channel 4x8Gbytes 1600MHz

MB: Asus Rampage 4 Extreme

GPU: HD 7990

GPU2: HD 7990

PSU: Lepa G1600

Please tell me if you want any more information like screens, etc...

Yes I am an amateur, any advice would be appreciated. I hope I can learn from your experiences =)

Recently built some work PC's with the i7-4930K. If we were using software that was reasonably multithreaded, we'd have picked Xeon's, but since most tasks still run singlethreaded, went with the 4930K. Great little processor. Love the speed. I still wonder if I should have spec'd the E5-1650 instead, for the FP unit.

I am running a i7-4960X on ASRock X79 Pro, got it right when it came out to replace my i7-2600K@4.8 GHz.

I calculated at least 50% speed increase with overclocking against my "old" CPU for my Ultra HD game video encoding.

I ended up with a solid 4.554 GHz overclock and (a bit over) 60% speed increase. RAM's are Crucial Ballistics 32 GB Kit (the compact non-showy one's) running at 1866 with 8/8/8/24 timing at 1.55 V, Sisoft measured 49 GB/s RAM speed.

Getting to 4.6 and 4.7 GHz is possible, but the heat is uncontrollable depending on the job, the Noctua NH-D14 cannot get the 150 to 180 watts of the CPU when doing video encoding, letting it go over 80°C way too fast (i.e. less than 5 seconds).

4.8 is unstable no matter what I do ;)

Happy owned of the I7 3930k. Have not pushed this thing as far as it can go with only my Corsair H100, but I do love it. It's nice to open up handbrake and it see use all 12 threads to 96%. Only running triple channel RAM though, can't find the 4th Samsung stick >:(

      It's locked & hidden by default, but I've got an i7 8700k & I'd like to use the intel graphic on my hackintosh mojave.
      Is there any way to activate or mod this?
      Thanks!

      The GPU works, The PSU works, The system works. [individually they all do work]
       
      The system works perfectly fine without the WLAN card.
       
      When i put the system to sleep and hotswap the mPCIe riser and WLAN press something on the keyboard.. Restarts.
      Will shutdown in roughly 27 seconds for those 27 seconds it works just fine like how it normally would on external monitor.
       
      When i shut it down and plug the riser and switch it on, same story. 27 seconds.
       
      I don't even see a error. I get to login screen directly. I used DDU already.
       
      I timed it. no matter what i do if i use the eGPU, External monitor it restarts instead of pause-play. I have 27 seconds.
       
      Need help!

      Evening, I own a Clevo P751DM2-G with a 7700k and for a while now i've been having issues with Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility. Everytime I run the program it states that there is a newer version on the Microsoft store and then continues to load. However once loaded it doesn't show the package temp, max core feq, core count or and of the other overclocking features. I've checked the Microsoft store and the Intel website and the version I have is the latest and the utility isn't even on the Microsoft store to download.
       
      Any advice would be great.

      It's locked & hidden by default, but I've got an i7 8700k & I'd like to utilise the intel 'quick sync'/hardware acceleration in Adobe encoding in order to speed up rendering. You don't need to have a display connected to it for it to work (i believe), but it's really fustrating how it is locked out, as it means I'm missing out on quite a useful time saving feature.
