What board are you using with the Yorkfield, lee? CPU-Z 1.43/1.44 can't read my vcore right. It reads it way too low. BTW, if you're using a reference 780i board, I heard a BIOS update fixes the power LED problem.

I have the Evga 780i, the vcore is 1.40 in the bios. I have the latest bios P03. I like the layout of the MSI but the colors suck I don't think this board has been reviewed yet.

Lee, what about the Asus Striker II Formula? I don't like MSI at all.

Fast benchie.

I cant read the temps with Coretemp. It gives me 50C idle which I don't believe. ASUS Probe says 26 idle. Load mid 50's @ 4GHz 1,4V. Coretemp says load 67C @ 4GHz. Remounted my cooler so I think its or the BIOS or the software that has the temps wrong. I'll just stick to 3875MHz 1,325V for a while till a good tool will come out.



My Q6600 was 53C stressed @ 3,4GHz, so the cooler is good imho... I think coretemp is wrong so i''l stick to the CPU temps that Probe give me. Seems most accurate to me.

I think your temps are normal. There is a 15C between Tcase and Tjunction temps for dual cores. I use Everest which shows both Tcase and Tjunction temps in one app. That said however, the digital sensors on the 45nm chips are wacky. It's a known issue.

I'm glad the Sensors on my QX9650 are A-OK. Alle cores stressed 57C @ 4GHz @ 1,4375V in BIOS. (1,35V in Everest and CPU-Z)

I personally have never had any problems with MSI boards and I can deal with the color scheme on everything but the memory slots, those things are butt ugly

Ok mine Qx9650 @ 4,2Ghz (12x350) stable rock solid..
But temps are to high for my tastes.. 49c iddle and 75C full load..


at 4.0ghz// is 48C iddle and 70C full load.

it looks like every 200mhz.. there are 5 degrees diference you gain
or lose at full load.

Can anyone recommend a really good water cooler for my yorkfield?
something not too expensive ,but of good quality . There are good reviews about swiftech water coolers..

http://www.swiftnets.com/products/H20-120-COMPACT.asp

any one with experience?

I just installed the Xeon X3350 and man I have to do some reading, this thing is a pain in the ass to OC as of now. I could not get it to 450 FSB. I just hate running the NB beyond 1.5v. I am sure I will find an answer I just need to spend a day reading. I have this feeling its the bios due to its infancy.

btw, what's the highest multi on the X3350?
I upated my Bios to 0605 and it boots up and see's it as a X3350 so thats fine (the Q9450 and the X3350 are the same basically). The multi is 8, right now I am at 425x8 3.4 @ 1.25 Vcore and it seems stable with prime 95 @ 50c load. The CPU-GTL and FSB-GTL seem to be where the secret is I will have to do alot of reading to get it fine tuned

I just spent 3500 bucks on a new rig and have one of those extreme edition 3ghz Yorkfields. I have it at 4ghz and playing crysis like butter on 9800gx2 in dx9 mode at 1920x1200 4xfsaa 16x aniso..crysis has never been this smooth.
I also have 4 gigs of Patriot ddr3 ram clocked effectively at 1.6ghz. amazingly fast and stable on my xfx 790i board...man I am liking this rig.
