Nice work!

I'm still on stock air, so I'm not trying for super high clocks yet. I've been playing with bclk trying to edge it up to 200 so when I finally get on water, I can have an idea of where I can go.

I am on water at 4.1 HT on, and my temperature are going to 70 C while priming but I have a GTX280 on the loop as well..... So I would say, depending on the ambient temperature, this look like good performance for air cooling.

@zlojack. thanks.using multi of 21 and bclk of 200. should get you 4.2Ghz. Bclk 222mhz is max in most cases. So it all depends how far you're putting ur voltages.

@matsta31: core i7 are hot even WC. I wanted my rig to be fast but slient at the same time. I got Noctua P12s all around and on the TRUE120 in a Cosmos 1000.
I was worried if it would be too hot.

What voltages are the ones for BLCK?

I want to try pushing the BCLK and leaving all the other multipliers low to see where I can max it to without frying my chip on air. I still need the mounting hardware for my EK Supreme. I think the ThermalRight or the Apogee GTZ backplates might be the way to go.

Theres no specific voltages for blck. cause It a bus speed. everything runs off a multiplier of it.
qpi/vtt and a combination of high volts for vcore, qpi ppl and cpu ppl should yield just few mhz higher bclk.

imo, stabling these core i7 are the hardest thing. I think F4k bios is best in my experience.
I got it up to 4Ghz 4core on TRUE120. But benchmark performance are not as good.
Therefore, I rather run 3.9Ghz 8core(HT) with Turbo 21X multi(all-time).
performance is very close to 4Ghz 8core. Need WC if going higher. temps and volts are high.

I will post screens later.

Thanks otto.

I should have my watercooling together sometime in the next week or two (FINALLY) so I'll be able to see what it does on water.

great. looking forward to see your system.

I got it stable at 3.9Ghz with 21X multi... busy playing games. heh
