This is my most recent attempt.

Cooling is Liquid, mostly Swiftech parts.

1.64 volts is pretty high. Does water cooling let you run that safely? Is it volts or heat that will kill a chip?
Your 12 volts line looks like it drooping quite a bit. But 3.6 is about as high as I have ever heard of e2160 running.
How high can you push an 8 times multi?

Congrats on over 100% OC, but volts do kill chips and boards, not high temps...

Very nice Wall86. Did you vCore-mod your DS3L? The highest vCore i can get is 1.6(1.54-1.568 real)..then the next step is 1.80.

This was my best with my daughter's chip. This was on air, in my basement(ambient 17c).

-E2160(TRUE/lotsa fans)
-GA P35-DS3L (no mods)
-2x1GB Ballistix 8500
-XP-Pro SP2





CPU-Z Validator 3.0

Wasn't very stable..due to dam vCore limitations(1.64 would have stabilized it easily).. temp was not an issue.

I should update my signature.

This is running on a DFI LP DK P45 T2RS.

If the board and CPU Die that just means I will have to upgrade. So it is a win-win situation. Might just urge me to go X48 with a decent CPU.

Super Pi results:



I really wanna see what an E7200 would do.

All - should I bother updating the thread, now that it seems that we've moved onto the i7? I've been out of the loop since fall of '08 due to work so I would appreciate your feedback!

I say yes,

With my newest re-build, I am debating bringing my E2160 out of retirement for a run with a Boreas, see what it can do with some real cooling.
