    absolutely.

    even the 900D shows he has no idea, its a ok case, but with that build and budget should be a caselabs case!

    First Run XTU 4.0GHz 6800K

    Score 6344, no joke, no trickery here.

    screenshots below. no idea whats going on here. Stock clock and ram 2133mhz score i got was 1461, up the cpu to 4.0ghz and mems to XMP 2800, and score lol 6344

    sorry for the shitty res, havnt even installed gfx drivers yet. was fresh install of windows as well, so is XTU evening working properly with broadwell?

    Finally got my 6850K rig going. Chip seems to be pretty good, runs pretty cool as well. Stable 4.2Ghz @ 1.25v/1.3v cache. Asus AI Suite is a buggy POS.

    What are safe voltages to go up to?

    you running your cache at 42x as well?

    24/7 volts probably want to stay under 1.35V, but can go up to 1.5V for benching.

    Yep. Ok cool, what about the cache voltage? Asus OC guide says don't go above 1.3v due to power/heat rise, sound about right?

    Totally agree. Also the fact they felt the need to take photos of it for everyone to see makes me think they have no idea as well.

    I haven't even OC'd my 6800K yet, hopefully I can have a proper go over the weekend. I'm somewhat disappointed actually. Kind of feel I should have got a 5 series.

    Chuck volts at it if you want 4.2GHz+, else 4GHz seems to run on much less for me, 1.36v vs 1.23v.

    Are you gaming with it? And if so, what resolution? It would be handy if you could run some 1440 benches on stock vs your overclock.

    Actually, he was a redditor. He said he wanted it up and running in a day and bought an interim solution until he could flesh out a custom water set up.

    Some games. I'm not sure what's the best to try as I've been out of the loop for a while. I might have time to run a few benches this weekend though. I can't crack 11k on firestrike extreme yet which is annoying, but haven't tried overclocking the CPU much.

    ive had a 5820K/5930K and still have a 5960X

    i love my 6800K, apart from the overclocking celing not being as high as the 5xxx chips, my 6800 does run cooler

    i have a 240mm rad with my 6800K, and @ 4.2Ghz 1.25V, it idles at 20 degres, no bad for a single 240mm rad. load temps of mid 50s in XTU

    I have had my 6800 booting at 4.5Ghz 1.35V, but havnt got it stable yet. more tinkering.

    They do clock, just takes more juice, and more tinkering. still not as high as the 5 chips, but improved temps.

    Im only using 1080p 120hz with the 6800K, the 5960X is running 4K

    If i could be bothered i could do some benchmarks, but dont even know what to test!

    So I've landed on 4.4ghz at 1.312v stable on my 6850k, max temps 77c on the hottest core on my dual rad loop, fans barely get noisy. Pretty happy with that. Still running 3100mhz cache though, so that's the next thing to look at.

    That's pretty neat! Is this with offset voltage? And what test / duration did you use to determine "stable"?

    It's with adaptive voltage, capped at 1.312v. Stability was tested in OCCT, with a ~1 hour OCCT run and a ~1 hour Linpack avx run. Should be longer, yes, but happy with that, haven't had any issues otherwise.

    OC will probably change when I add a GTX1080 into the loop, more heat etc.

    only running a mild OC on my 6800K @4Ghz. stock volts. only hits about 70c on a NH-D15S air cooler under prime95 stress testing.

    What software do you guys use with the X99 Strix to control fan speeds and RBG? All the Asus software I've used is shithouse. I can't even get my RGB to work on video card or motherboard.

    Agreed, the Asus apps on the whole seem to be garbage. For some reason AI Suite TPU decides to work to change settings in windows exactly three times, and on the fourth it overvolts everything to the absolute maximum, which is.... slightly dangerous :S :Paranoid:

    FanXpert seems to get confused as well and both it and Aura isn't the most user friendly thing in the world :o

    So it's not just me... The Asus suite on my P8Z77 was rubbish as well. They really need to provide an all in one software suite with audio, graphics, motherboard/CPU and RGB.

    Any updates on this? Just wonder what kind of loop he ended up with.

    All the fans in my rig #1 are Thermaltake RGB Fans, so they have their own controller (3x140mm case fans, and 3x120mm fans on the 360mm rad)

    RGB on the board, GFX card, and fans are just on cycle through colours. Havn't tried to set them.

    Only thing i have played around with is the MUSIC mode on the GTx1080, which makes the RGB changed colours to marry up with the music, novelty at best
