5ghz.....I know what my next CPU will be
very nice. would like to see how high these bad boys go in a shuttle / air cooling etc. cba'ed to look through 50+ page threads on XS though
A super chilled conroe at 1.75v?
Thats the 2.93 extreme so maybe 3.5ghz+-
I know what mine will be too, The only worry i have is the voltage these guys are running here.
im not scared to put 1.75 through my A64 (1.4v stock). But i know a LOT of the users here wont even go above 1.5v most of the time.
These conroes are 1.2-1.3v stock and people are pushing 1.8v through them to get these results.
I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed with their overclocks on these because they dont want the huge volts.
Yeah, I don't think you can really get much real world value out of LN2 benchmarks. Plus, a lot of us buy stuff that we actually intend to use - I would debate the practicality and longeivity of a LN2 cooled system where the CPU is running massively overvolted. That's not really the point of why they do it, but its a valid point as far as mere mortals are concerned.
I would be happy with a 4Ghz Conroe on my modded Vapo.
Yea, thats the thing. People all want this conroe now but im not sure they realise the stress these chips are under, theres a distinct fear of volts on this forum.
Wont be long now though
hmm, wonder when they will have actual availability of these to buy. i know the release is meant to be july sometime but will that be a paper launch or not?
Hope its worth the wait!
How do you manage to raise the volts to 1.75V, Tom? Most i can raise is 1.680 or thereabouts. Is there a DFI bios that lets you do this? Cheers.
Damn that's quick
DFI's go up to 2.1v?
Maybe i'm missing something here but in my bios screen i can only see:
CPU VID control max: 1.55
Special VID control max: 113%
Sorry for the off topic.
I think only certain bioses have the really high voltage special values.
I think some Ultra D BIOSs took the 123% and higher options out because there were problems. I killed a really good 3000 Venice with one of the 123% options - in reality, these options pumped more voltage than stated through the chip or something.
I think the Expert fixed all the niggles like this.
That means the max is 1.75 volts.
Thanks for the info guys.
Can't remember which bios i'm on but it's nice and stable so i think i'll give the mega-voltage bios's a miss
EDIT: Jimbo, It reads just below 1.7v in CPU-Z for me, but i know thats probably an inaccurate reading, mate.
Woah that's speedy. Wonder when someone is gonna get a sub 10 second pi time?
