    Hey all. I'm sure most/all don't remember me, but anyways.... Im a OLD GUY from waaaaay back in the day. I recall I met him about 20 years ago. Verran is a cool guy. We talked a lot through pm's. So I raise my glass again to him. 

    I certainly remember you "OLD GUY". Was lot's of fun here back in the day. Was even more fun in the "DFI STREET" days before the forums were merged.

    I finally reached 5Ghz this year with the 10900K :)

    Lol, well done. I moved from Intel to AMD with Zen1 and a 1700 and have been on the Zen journey ever since :D Have been running a 3950x for the last year nearly. Not been at 5Ghz obviously, but the 3950x is so much faster than all the 5Ghz+ clocks from 10 years ago it beggers belief lol. What i am thinking of doing when i can get a 5950x is running my 3950x in my Asus CH6 under phase...............i think it could be a lot of fun. To be honest in these covid times, fun is something i defo need...............and maybe some others might need as well.


  3. A better thing to do would be to:

    Get another i7 930 (or i7 920) and...

     

    EVGA Classified SR-2 (Super Record 2) 270-WS-W555-A1 LGA 1366 Intel 5520 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HPTX Intel Motherboard

     

    i7 930 = $200 (at MicroCenter)

    +

    EVGA Classified SR-2 = $579.99

     

    Total = $779.99 for dual overclocked i7 930's for 8 cores and 16 threads... plus a motherboard with the most bells and whistles I've ever seen.

     

    I already have a server with two XEON E5520's, and thinking about upgrading once they've been out a while and see how other people fare with them. :P

     

    The SR2 would be of no use at all to anyone with either a 930 or a 920.

    It only accepts Xeon server chips, because they can "talk" to each other. In other words they have dual QPI, all the retail 1366 (920, 930, 975,980x) are single QPI parts and won't work in the SR2.


  4. As a participant in the competition, the only cost involved was getting to and from the venue.

    ALL the hardware is provided, along with food and drink as well. LN2 was provided, as was DICE.

    So i don't quite understand what it is you are getting at boinker.

    As Gigabyte paid for everything, i think it's up to them what bit's of thier own hardware they want us to use.

    After all, if it was a car racing contest, you wouldn't expect the manufacturer to give you a cheap 1ltr family car to race

    when they have a 5ltr muscle car at the head of thier lineup.


  5. Better than the last results with the old phase I must say... thumbsup.gif

     

    Thanks RR.

     

    I don't know why, but i must have forgotten about the Prime run below. I did it in February and it went completely out of my mind.

    I'll re-do Prime Blend with the new SS at some point, but the one below will do for now.

     

    i975

    4.611ghz

    Prime Blend 24hrs

    Phase cooling.
