Well through learning/educating myself, and getting to grips with the details on the mobo settings, i just ran 4.2GHz 20 min prime stable.

Thermals are still teh same and to high, might be the thermal solution between the cores, and the IHS..

What i learned about and applied where : svid control, svid voltage override, PLL overvoltage. and before you go on google to look them up in wanting to explain things, i can do that myself :P

Still spiking 90+ C on 1.31Vcore 1.9VCCin, 1.2 cache voltage... i dont like it.. to darn hot.

I'm sure you can undervolt the PLL by a few notches...

Here's my card running at 1403Mhz and 8Ghz VRAM. Firestrike benchmark, 1st run. I flashed the card back to stock BIOS since I need to game at anything above 1400Mhz. Will benchmark at 1500Mhz when I have the time to flash again.

@pcdc650: Those are some sexy numbers! Let's see a bench score

Damn, do a bench with custom bios as well. That is damn good score. Oh and post it in the other thread.

Weeeellll right now im just running 4.0GHz with 40 Multi on the cache at adaptive voltage and the rest auto and xmp regulated. im also running the EPU and other power regulating features. if i cant get higher ill just run it more effeciently right. Im thinking of looking into skylake when it comes round.

Lookey what i went and did :P are you happy now klunt_bumskrint (shaking fist) LOL

It does make a difference, trust me.

And what difference does it make then ? i was gonna be like ill put it on and be like see it makes no difference. but i cant be bothered. i got good temps, speed wont go any higher deu to voltage controller. so what difference does it make ?

@TDuiker: Dude, you've got the backplate on wrong!!

yeah i know, but it doesnt matter i just slapped it on and saw this when i posted the pictures. Seriously it doesnt matter, i would get the same temps even if i rotated the backplate 45 degrees :P

I personally use prime95 for strestesting, and have so for years. i never want it above 80C. it can probaly go higher, but if it goes above 80 its not worth it. and if youres atble gaming at 60C a H100i will just give youmore silent cooling, if youre into such things.. i am :P

Well one of those stupid litlle thingys buckeld eventually after i put on as5 and everything, so i was like frack it, and modded it. and yes i used the spacers from the Original; backplate. allready getting better temps, and the as5 hasent really cured yet or anything..

I also noticed just now i stuck the back on at an angle, but then it doesnt frickin matter. that just there for structual rigidity..

@TDuiker: That might explain why. I think Intel put the voltage controller in the CPU itself for the Haswell series CPUs. So the mobo only have a basic/poor control on it. Intel changed this later on, as the results where not good. (Maybe they changed it for haswell refresh, or it will wait until 5000 series CPUs from them). Anyway the OC capability is limited. If you had a Z97 mobo, which has proper voltage controll again, you would see better results when OC.

If you watch/read TinyTomLogan (OC3D.com) reviews, on one of his first Z97 mobo reviews, he talks about it. A CPU that he couldn't get stable at anything above 4.5 (or perhaps even lower), he suddenly got stable at 5.0 with the first Z97 mobo he tested with.

I now have it running at 4.4GHz 1.3V Not prime stable yet (havent tested yet). I am actually thinking of doing a custom mount on the H100i waterblock. Just run some bolts through the mobo with the back plate, and clampo it down with some washers and nuts.. also applying some artic silver 5.. because then i really propperly clamp it down. without having to fluff about with them thing that dont handle a lot of stress on it before fucking up.. I did the same thing with my Q6600, and my storm waterblock. worked a treat.

4.2GHz was actually prime stable, untill i had to cut it short because the cpu got to hot, and now have had far cry 4 running for 4 hours 50/60% load on 4.4GHz dropped the voltage to 1.3V, i can probably get it lower but ill do that tomorrow since its frackin late now. I even let far cry 4 run at 4.2 overnight just to have the sort of get used to teh higher voltage and higher speed before bumping it up :P i wil find a sweet spot eventually..

Well i cant seem to get it above 4.0GHz 4.2/4.4 GHz up to 1.30 V And it just BSOD's as soon as i put any stress on it.. or immeadiatly.

So i cant be bothered any more right now, ill just run it with 40 Multi and adaptive voltage so it also volts down under light load, giving me slightly more power saving..

It does anything i want it to do, maybe ill look into skylake.

EDIT: Wauw i just played a whole 64 player round of BF4 on 4.2 GHz.. I took a slightly different route..

Vcore is at 1.32V , VCCin is at 1.9V , Cache/ring voltage is 1.2V , mutli of 42 , cache/ring Multi on 35 .. I set initial BLCK/DMI and BLCK/DMI bus manually to 100, instead of xmp i set memory speed/timings/voltage manually.
