Thx , you are welcome.


I had a little time to do some OC runs this weekend....

Let me re-iterate ; I don't normally run OC'd.
Just a quick OC to give you some idea what it can do.

This overclock was done with FSB adjustment only.There is a memory ratio change (5:6 to 1:1) that was done automatically by BIOS.There are no other changes.

Idle temps :

Full load temps ;

3D06 ;


Here's a 'real world' benchy for yaz ;

q3 timedemo


It also scores over 40,000 on 3dmark03 heheh...


Synthetic benchmarks aside , I'm very pleased with this chip.Once again , the overclocking ability is there , and it's fast at even stock speeds.

gg Intel. Nice job
Intel 3930k /rIVe/32 Gb vengeance LP/Nvidia TITAN/760/760/Intel 520's/WD raptors/etc...

To tell you the truth this cpu is the same speeds as the Q6600, from test that where down it beat the q6600 by two tests, so keep that in mind, and the fat that this cpu is locked at 8X where the Q6600 is locked at 9X
