    Here's my new setup, finally lost my will power and went with a C2D.

    Running 8x465 @3.72Ghz ram at 1:1 with rather loose timings.

    Nice Background! Er, I mean, mean time there, AMD F... what kind of temps are you getting with that E6750 on Stock Air?

    Odd feeling? I've built two c2d systems in the past year after building, what, half a dozen AMD systems since 2002. It really felt alien at first, but ya gotta love these C2Ds. That'a great OC. Have fun.

    BTW, I still pray every night that AMD can make a comeback, to keep the competition up. But I'm starting to lose faith.

    Re: The SuperPI Hall of Fame

    Fluff, this chip only required about 1.38 volts to get stable at 3.7Ghz so the temps weren't too bad but does get upto 58c under load. It's got room for more but not until and aftermarket cooler gets here.

    Alex, I've been holding my nreath trying to make myself believe my opty 170 was enough but all this C2Ds running close to 4Ghz without breaking a sweat was too temting and boy it was worth it..

    "Without breaking a sweat". That's the operative phrase. I'm convinced Intel purposely downplays the actual speed of these chips, as they OC so easily. It makes all the work OCing an AMD chip an extra 100MHz seem just too hard, and almost, well, pathetic. I hate to put it that way, but I think you know what I mean. These C2Ds just zoom

    You Intel traitors have taken all the fun and intrigue out of overclocking, it's just to easy going to the dark side.

    Don't think it hasn't crossed my mind Intel Fanatic (joke)!

    My next build will probably be............next fall (8 months or so away ), if AMD doesn't answer, I will switch teams.

    Re: The SuperPI Hall of Fame

    I had an exchange with Radiohead the other day, a great mod, a great guy, and a long-term AMD guy. I asked him the same Q, and he indicated that AMD better get on the stick eventually or he might consider a switch. Before I built my DS2R, I was set to buy an AM2, but as I looked closer and closer, the price-performance ratio just wasn't there compared to the C2Ds.

    Re: The SuperPI Hall of Fame

    Getting to the higher clocks is still difficult though. One thing I am finding is temps are not the issue with the newer inhell chips. Mine runs ok at 3.8 all day and the temps barely get to 50c at 4.0 ghz but gaining stability is rough. I need to try a C0 stepping quad to get anywhere higher.
    I have to wonder though I keep hearing that the new chips do not like high fsb and the multi's are so low it is a necessity. Almost forces the intel overclockers to use xtreme edition cpu's. We all know how ridiculous the prices on those are.
    Then again who am I to complain about the overclocks I get as I certainly am getting my moneys worth.

    Re: The SuperPI Hall of Fame

    Seems I've hit a wall and the FSB seems to be the suspect as you said 0156.

    8x475 is no problem but beyond that things get wierd. My Ram is good for 1025Mhz with loose timings but when trying for over 3.8Ghz I have my ram with 2X multiplier so it's well under it's limit. Just feels so solid at 3.8Ghz that you would think there is room for more. Not complaining though, rather happy overall.

    Here's a new SuperPI at 3.8Ghz.

    Re: The SuperPI Hall of Fame

    For my ds2r system with the e6750, 450 X 8 was the sweet spot, with my vcore at 1.406. It runs very cool (current core temps 29C and 31C) and extremely stable at this speed. I suppose I could push it some more, and I've tried, but any gains have been and will be diminishing and likely result in higher vcore, higher temps, and less stability. Interesting, on my DS3 and e6600, I had been running that at either 7 X 480 or 8 X 420 = 3.36GHz (with memory set at 5-5-5 or 4-4-4, respectively), but to get to that higher speed (regardless of fsb) on my e6600, I really had to jack the vcore. A few weeks ago I updated a number of things on that system and decided to back off the speed. Now I'm running at 465 X 7 = 3.25GHz, something like that, with a much lower vcore, lower temps. That's the sweet spot. I can live with it. I mean, I can give or take 100MHz when I'm already running at 3200+ MHz. It's no biggie. I'll take what they give me.

    I'm curious, though, 0156 and AMDFanatic, what are your various voltage settings?

    Re: The SuperPI Hall of Fame

    My Vcore at 3.8Ghz was set to 1.41v, NB was +1v and ram at 2.0v.

    Not even sure what my default NB voltage is?? Still a n00b here in this strange territory..
