    I saw the preview on a Facebook link to Tom's Queer. The benchmarks were limited as it looks like Intel did an AMD on this one with specific Intel Benchmarks(the ones showing the best increases). The benchies were limited and do not show the entire picture. The reviewer did not want to overclock a "borrowed" CPU. It was rather lame.

    I hope you realize that you sound like an immature child when you post like this.

     

     

    Also - what Clay said.

     

    Waco, try finding a woman instead of using your right hand. You may become a nice individual someday.

  3. Okay so Nvidia takes the GPU crown and Intel the CPU crown these days, thanks for the breakdown and info guys! Any thoughts on those pre-builds over at that Cyberpowerpc website? I really don't see myself building this guy anything at this point in time so I just want to send him a link.

     

    @Bosco hey man good to see you are still running things around here, you are a true pioneer man! Are any of those other guys still kicking around this place?

    Not neccesarily. It depends on what he wants to spend...  AMD FX-8350 is on par with 3570K but it will do better when multi threading.

     

    A10-5800K is better than i3 3220 at the mainstream end.

     

    SandyBridge E Processors still rule the roost but at $500-$1000 that is steep. The i7 3770K is the best all around CPU at $300.


  4. IMO, neither. The core i7 3770K will do as good job as Sandy E processors while using less expensive Z77 motherboards. X79 motherboards are more expensive. I have a 3930K with X79 motherboard and I game with my i7 3770K if that says something. If you already have the X79 motherboard, stick with the 3820. There will not be much advantage with the 3930K in gaming and you will save a boatload of cash.


  5. We tested it extensively with water cooling and even volted it to 1.65 at one point, The product may handle 4.5 but this one wont :(

    NO... Unless you just had a crap chip. I overclocked a handfull and these steppings got 4.5GHz. In a matter of fact, a lot of the last 965's got the same overclock. 975's and 980's were bimmed chips. Send me the chip, I will get 4.5Ghz. Remember, you need 1.35 volts on CPU/NB too.


  6. There is no mention of which is the inlet on the manual which came with the block and in this photo it looks symmetrical http://i464.photobucket.com/albums/rr4/383HEMI/Lian%20Li%20A05N/DSCF0091.jpg, however i have to remove the mobo again soon to fit some decoupling kits because the top fans are resonating the case so i will reverse the flow then and see if it helps, the supreme and supremacy are totally different blocks, and in a different price range so the design will be different. i will also be installing a back plate however one isn't required but it will be useful. the block is definitely level but i will check the IHS incase

    As memtioned, there is usually an innie an outtie LOL, Try it and see what shakes out.


  7. Almost forgot Highest stable clock regardless of voltage is 4.3GHz, That's just this particular chips brick wall regardless of voltages, cooling (tested water for a bit) and bus speeds. The HT bus is also not a fan of clocking OR voltage, starts turning text into random ASCII characters.

    Ohhh no, the 975's get 4.5Ghz easily. They are binned 955/965's. If your cooling can handle 1.55-1.6 volts. that baby will do 4.5GHz stable. plus the HT can overclock fine. I got 238 on the HTT.

     

    Here is a suicide run I did on custom water with a 980 which is the same chip... On air, all you will get is about 4.3GHz due to temps. I used 1.52 volts for 4.3Ghz but as you see, water will take it further.

    Here is a dry ice run:

  8. looks like the block is actually an EK-Supreme LTX, you might try switching the inlet/outlet hoses on the block to see if you get better temps.. I cant realy tell from the picture but that block actually works better with one of the restrictor plates in it, cant remember which one does the best off hand though...

    Thats what I was trying to get at.....

    If you live near Philly, Microcenter has core i7 3770K for $229 and an Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 for $135 total $265. You can get Crucial Ballistix Sport series 8G 1600MHz memory for $40 on New Egg(You could prpbably have Microcenter price match it too). Forget what your using it for. It has no bearing on anything........ You have $400, maximize you system.

    I like the way you think young man!

     

     

    Edit: That Asrock seems to get praised then bashed on OCC. Personally I've never owned a product made by them. Obviously you think they're fine.

    Anyone else care to weigh in??

    I just retired as a motherboard reviewer and every ASRock board I tested was good. Nothing bad to say about them. I have had bad Gigabyte and Asus boards but never an ASRock unless you count the one I beat up on Dry Ice! LOL. I did not let the socket dry from condensation years ago and fired it back up...... Resulting in buh bye! LOL

     

    The included extras ASRock gives is terrific and the UEFI bios is pretty good. I am sure you will like it. Just like any other manufacturers, sometimes boards go bad so I don't hold it against them unless you see a slew of em bad, your good to go on basically any Z77 board Fom Asus, Gigabyte, ASRock, MSI and Biostar.

  11. The whole block looks different, the TIM is phobya hegrease, and the instructions did'nt say anything about which port to use as inlet, maybe thats for a different block? There is plenty of pressure and it looks like its mounted fine

     

    il post a better photo of the block

    edit: my block is not a supremacy, its a supreme ltx nickel csq, so it won't have the same inlet/outlet configuration as the supremacy, although good idea

     

    Fans are at max and the pump is running directly off a 12v molex, so should be at max, also 2 cores are running at 58 degrees and 2 at 68 degrees, i expected some variation between cores but not that much.

    The photo is right from EK's website and all EK nickel supremecy are the same design. There is a difference what port is the inlet on almost all waterblocks and that could be the culprit.

    It is hard to see if you have the correct line in on the block. The directions specifically say the port closest to the middle. Something looks different compared to the instructions. The EK logo looks diffrent position...
