    OC i7 970 Hex Core

    Oh ok. Thanks for the link. Running my memory at half the rated frequency doesnot sound ideal. Even-though the timings have been tightened. Why's the best way to go about this then. This is my 1st i7 chip.

    OC i7 970 Hex Core

    I just noticd the Timings on my memory in CPU-z. CAS-6? 6-6-6-18. Wow. I actually never touched the Ram Timings in the Bios... How could have these changed? They were CAS-9.<br><br>
  3. Hey guys. So i recently built a new rig: i7 970 Asus Sabertooth 12 GB Vengance DDR3 Trip Channel Memory MSI 560 Ti Twin Frozer Corsair 850w PSU all in-closed in a P190 case. Now i started Overclocking the 970 ( Which has stock Cooler still) and well i have the BLK @ 162 and Multi @ 25. for a clock speed of 4050 MHz, and when the Turbo Boost Kick in ive seen 4.2 GHz. Now i ran y-cruncher on a 2 Million Test. And the Highest Core temp i got was 81 degrees C. That seems quite low still. This stock cooler that awesome-o? Or what am i missing here? I wouldn't say im New to OC'ing. BUT i know that 81C is still a fine temp under 100% Load for that test. What do you guys think? I know a New heatsink would cost me like 50 buks, and ill be A OK for sure. But why change something if its doing the job. Im thoroughly impressed with this chip! -M

    Well of course i post this then figure it out. Apparently i needed to change from HD audio in the BIOS to AC97...AND use the "Front Speakers" Jack instead of LINEin. Well there ya go.

    Hey guys, i cant seem to get my On-Board sound to work. The Mixer shows that there is sound and it working. But i cannot get any sound through my headphones using the LineIN Jack at all! Its very frustrating! Any ideas?

    Your probably right. that is 600mhz over stock. It seems to run pretty cool under stress though when rendering @ 100%. Ill see how much i can push it.

    Intel i7 970 Build

    Got it all fixed up. It was a defective Motherboard.. Crazy! I have never had one of those. Now time to Overclock the 970! Im hoping to get 3.8..ish on The stock cooler. My P190 case keeps Temps quite low by itself, i think that number should be achievable.

    rendering machine help

    I use Maya/Mental ray, and after effects, and just built my machine. Going from a Phenom II x4 955 to my i7 970 Six core my renders are now 5X faster. Frames went from 5 minutes for this shot... to under 50 seconds. A huge improvement. With rendering it all about the cores and threads. so think about that. -M
