Corsair 900d with 5 radiators

Recommended Posts

Since its a work computer i dont have the time to fully sit down and do a proper OC.

 

Right now its running at 4.2ghz 27x156 @ 1.42V   ram is running at 1876Mhz @ 9-9-9-24 which i might be able to tighten up a little, stock is 1600Mhz 6-8-6-24.  If i remember right and this was 5 or more years ago when i was OC on this board, i think i could hit in the mid 1900Mhz rage with a cl9 and even drop to a 7-8-7 or 8-8-8 with 1800Mhz.

 

Maybe this weekend when i go to swap out cpus ill take the time and see what if can fully get out of the X5690.   Im just really hoping the extra 2 cores will help the computer out, between Blue iris and autocad running at the same time it pretty much nukes the system.

 

Right now running Blue Iris, 1 window of fire fox, and exchange open im running 45% on cpu and 50% ram.

Hey felllas what's up? Olokul that is a nice looking rig. Ha mine is not as nearly good as yours. Finally found time to post pics(suspended from GTA 5). Will be changing CPU to a 5960x. Got an untested one off eBay for $223. Of course it doesn't work. But intel is gonna RMA it.

That thing is massive.  It just screams power.

You're going to be blown away how the x5690 runs / overclocks.  Keep in mind max intel spec volts is 1.35 on the core and cache for these 32nm chips.  Do not push past 1.35v on the cache.

Hey fellas whats up? Ha my pictures suck. Yeah it is big and heavy. Cannot wait to try out the 5960x. Right now with the 6800k overclocked is 4.3 at 1.4volts.  Just a hassle to change out the cpu. So do you guys think its worth it for me to upgrade to the GTX1080ti?

So played around with the computer this weekend,  pulled the 975 out and plugged the X5690 and nothing happened, pulled the chip and cleaned everything and many bios resets zilch.  Put the X5675 in and with many reboots, bios resets, and switching between the two bios it would finally boot to something on the screen but it was a bios checksum error.

 

So after about 3 hours a playing around i pulled a server and put each chip in it and it booted fine, so i know the CPUs work.   I tried multiple sticks of ram between 3 different sets in different slots and even a set of ECC ram with no luck.   So im back to the 975 but i think i might replace it with my 950,  the 950 OC'd way better then this 975.  The 975 is a sample chip and just OC's like a turd.  best i could do and still be stable is 4.2Ghz @ 1.42v  and i know my 950 can do at least 4.6Ghz at those volts.

 

 

I might try pulling the 975 in a few weeks and give the Xeons another try before putting the 950 in.

 

 

*Update*

 

Just heard back from a friend, hes willing to trade my x5675 for a 980x, so in some way ill be able to get to 6 cores :D

That's almost unheard of honestly, especially on a RIIIE board.  Latest BIOS?

The newest on Asus's webpage for that board.     Maybe ill flash the second bios to the second newest bios from asus and see if that has anything to do with it.

Well got the 980x installed over the weekend and is running strong for now.   Pulled up some old screenshots of the bios i had of my 950 to get a starting point for OC'ing this cpu.   Running at 4.25Ghz 29x146 @ 1.38v  ram is running 1758Mhz @ 9-9-9-24.   Want to see if i can start pulling some voltage and timings out to make it better.

Little update, been playing round with the computer when i have time.

 

980x is now running at 4.39Ghz 29*151 @ 1.325V

swapped out my ram from 12GB to 24GB now running at 1818Mhz @ 9-11-11-24

 

Ive been using the Asus TurboV EVO software to change settings inside of windows for testing and then it lets me save the settings to bios.  Makes it nice if i fail a OC the computer will boot up with the last known good setting so i dont have to go in and reconfigure everything from a reset bios.

Nice!  I'm running my W3680 at 4.2ghz 28*150 @ 1.28v.  The W3680 and 980x are essentially the same chip.  1800mhz 8-9-8-24.

You cant buy and good ddr3 ram anymore with good timings,  the old ram i had was 1600Mhz 6-8-6-24 6*2GB that would overclock great but i needed more then 12GB.   The few kits i could find were 1600Mhz 9-9-9-24 6*4GB or the kit i bought 2133Mhz 11-13-13-31 which is now running at 1840Mhz 10-11-11-24.

 

Ive now managed to get the a 4.45Ghz 29*153 @ 1.318v,  with the jump from 152 to 153 i had to bump the ram to a CL10.    Cl9 must have been really close to failing on 152 block, everything seemed just slightly sluggish.  Once i moved to block 153 and cl10 everything became very snappy.

 

So far im very happy with the 980x it seems to be happy with a 4.45Ghz OC and with a 50% load bounced around 45-51*c will have to see if i can match my 950's 4.62Ghz OC
