Same from FUTU Online (through EBay) with the 20% discount atm.
5Ghz Cinebench R15 challenge. Not giving you any clues on the ram speed
Should be easy right 1680 Shane's on a budget board & not so great 3600 b-die's
chip is in the mail, I was doing 4100 all tight with it at PAX though, suspect end of my mem's ability, not necessarily the board.
best bios for last two gens by far.
Not bad. I think I will play. First run with crap ram @ 3000 everything open was only 1620. I think I will swap some stuff around tonite ans see where we end up
Thanks for that. Saved $70 on the board. I also bagged their last 8700K which after the Ebay price inflation less the 20% off ended up as $580 so only $11 more than stores that don't have stock. Also ordered a Samsung 960 Evo 1TB M2.
Ordered a Noctua NH-D15 from elsewhere and I'll grab some 3200MHz memory from Umart.
Parts should arrive towards the end of the week.
Just bought Headin2001s binned 8700k and ordered a Asrock Z370 Taichi.
Was tossing up between the Hero and Taichi so will be interesting to see results.
I get 1663 running @ 5GHz & Trident Z RGB 4 x 8GB XMP 3200 C14. Not sure on overclocking ram, what is the best course of action?
I got 1687 at 5ghz, with memory at XMP 3600 timings.
What volts are you guys getting 5GHz stable with? Just wondering who has the lowest and what the average is.
Looks like a nice cpu,low volts
Does cpuz read correct volts now?
Oh I thought it was,Ive not got platform just yet to know
Yes it does read correctly, as you can see from my Hwinfo vcore volts, its exactly the same.
For me it is 1.36v, that is after extensive testing.
Why is your ram so cold, where is your cpu temps? Your results dont make sense.
My ram is not that cold, 25 degrees is normal ambient temperature, plus I have a memory cooler blowing air onto them, so that keeps them cool as well.
What results don't make sense ?
Low volts & no cpu temp? Do a benchmark so we can see your min max cpu temps. You are cooking some peoples heads, it sounds too good to be true, like next level unicorn shit.
For me, quite a few have been benchable for testing below 1.3v bios, some down to 1.25v bios which is about 1.28v real.
Best one of mine which just sold was 1.27v Bios Linpack stable, and that's crazy tough.
Pretty sure the other I have here needed a bit more, and runs a bit hotter than that one.
Still looking for a mythical unicorn myself.
I've noticed it's a bit off to be honest. Software isn't reading correctly on my Apex vs using a DMM, and the voltage float in software is pretty crazy.
Mystical Unicorns are a fairy tale They don't exist. But hey look the screenshot below. If you did have a Unicorn ultimate 8700K would you run 100% Thermal limits
for the benchmark to complete ... that's no way to treat the Unicorn . But hey turn off MONITORING so no one can see the flogging it's being dealt.
Remember kids if you are playing @ home to turn your cpu volt's down with your Asus app to pretty it for that special screenshot.
I'm thinking like headin here. Good 8700K will bench like 1.28v on 50x multi
So I have my CPU, motherboard and cooler ordered.
I need to select my memory. I plan to install 64GB in the system ultimately but may well start with 32GB (2x16GB).
I plan to do some conservative overclocking - same as my current i3770K system.
Any recommendations for memory?
Is 3000MHz enough or should I go for 3200MHz?
Corsair seems the most readily available.
My cooler is the Noctua NH-D15 which often has issues with ram clearance especially if large heatsinks are fitted but I have the Coolermaster Cosmos II case so there is plenty of room to offset the fan.
Also trying to stick to QVL listed items.
Current leading contender is Corsair 32GB (2x16GB) CMU32GX4M2C3200C16R DDR4 3200MHz Red LED which is $545 from Umart and on the QVL.
The 3000MHz LPX modules are very similar price.
