Hmm I didn't realize they've got another way to enable Non-Z overclocks. Time to experiment :D

For a pentium, this is a rocking little chip. Really impressed with it. Heck in a couple of those its right up there with the stock clock of the i7-920 I have in my desktop.

Loop Rev. 2 is complete and currently stress testing. I'd hoped that the high(ish) temps on the previous testing might have been improved with a remount, but current temps seem to reflect the slightly lower ambient temps so I suspect it is what it is. :)

I'll get some completed pics up sometime next week when / if the weather cooperates, but the only real difference is that I decided to use the mounting mechanism from the second spare dual bay res I had (primochill) as opposed to the jury rigged screws I had previously. IMO looks a lot better, but more importantly it's more secure, and (if I install it properly) will make use of the res's rubber mounts which could conceivably isolate the pump from the case.

Got some.... ;)

I've got a block for this card as well but for the moment it's running on air. Pretty happy with the temps, I was thinking that I might have to run it with the case side off until I redid the loop, but 1 1/2 hours looped 3dmark with the case buttoned up had minimal effect on CPU temps ( I was very concerned about internal case temps shutting the rig down) and kept GPU temps mid 80s on the auto profile.

Ran a quick bounty (about 15 minutes) on D3 and was happy with the performance.

I'm going to have to redo the res mount a bit though.... the GPU side mount interfered with the card.

Hopefully get some pics up of the finished product sometime over the next week or so.

Have to say... pretty decent little build for a budget gamer if a person can get their hands on a decent card sub $150.

edit: For S & Gs here's the comparison between the 560ti 448 and the 4850 I'd tried in there a few weeks ago (the 4850 couldn't do the higher end test because it's not DX 11 compatible).

Since selling my personal rig (RIVE, 580, 16Gb, blah, blah...), I've come to the conclusion that I will never need the raw power of most of the components out there. So I've snatched a H87i-Plus along one of those G3258s and a lonely 7970 (couldn't pass it for 160 shipped).

Presently running the base BIOS; do you think I could upgrade to the latest - one installed is 3 versions ago... without loosing the oc'ing capabilities? Oh, also got a H80i (new) for 40, so high oc should not be a problem.

In one of your previous posts, you mentioned the board has a maximum DDR3-1333 ram speed; actually it's a chip limitation. Pentiums limit ram speed to 1333. i3s are limiting to 1600. i5s and i7s are unrestricted.

I'd be leery about any bios update that included new cpu codes. Is there a compelling reason to upgrade? I can't really guess as the latest bios available for my H81 board is the 2001 version that unlocks overclocking.

As far as this rig goes... it's been re-purposed into my young lad's rig and he prefers less required maintenance so it's back down to air. :) Currently running 4.5G @ 1.3V with a single "pull" on a CM Hyper 212+ and maxing out around 82c.

He's playing DIII with it so I doubt very much he'd notice the difference between this and a 4G 980X, especially since he got a slight upgrade from a 560ti to a 448 model.

YMMV but I was able to downgrade my MSI H87M-G43 BIOS back to a version that supports non-Z overclock.
