    Yes, sorry things are going slowly. A very limited number of samples have gone out for development testing. Also got the first pictures from the factory where I've ordered an initial batch. Unfortunately they messed some things up and will delay this another week or so while they produce a new PCB. Here it is in action: https://youtu.be/Fbw1CZp-GNE?t=381 Quick specs: - 3x I2C headers working at 3.3-5.0V - 1x UART header, TX 3.3V RX 3.3-5.0V - 1x SPI header 0.8-3.6V with on-board controllable LDO for feeding power - VMOD header which is essentially the same as ROG Hotwire (sense and modify the feedback circuit of a voltage controller) - Built-in USB bootloader for firmware upgrades (essentially unbrickable) - Micro-USB cable for connecting to the PC Bundled: - 3-pin 2.54mm to 3-pin 2.54mm 40cm cable (I2C/UART) - 2x 3-pin 2.54mm to open end cable (I2C/UART) - 2x 2-pin 2.54mm to open end cable (VMOD) - 1x 1-pin 2.54mm to open end cable (Ground) - SPI cable for Asus motherboards - SPI cable for MSI motherboards - SPI cable for Asrock motherboards (SOIC8 test clip can be bought separately for Gigabyte boards, they don't have headers for flashing) Additional info: - I2C1 supports I2C listening/sniffing to figure out what's being sent on the bus it's connected to, which is very useful for figuring out how to talk to undocumented ICs - I2C3 supports SSD1306 128x64px I2C OLED displays as seen in Roman's video for displaying various information (optional add-on) - The SPI header is targeted for external BIOS flashing. Can be very useful for flashing mod-BIOSes or recovery. Can also be used to update the EC firmware on some boards.

    XTU always had a 32 and 64 bit inner benchmark executable that was correctly chosen by the bitness of the OS. So that has nothing to do with the improved performance. The reason for increased scores is that this new version now uses Prime95 29.4 while the old uses the slower 27.7. Regarding benchmark security and timer reliability Intel opened up another can of whoop ass by using QueryPerformanceCounter() for timing. As I have not seen any counter measures that take care of timer skewing, changing your bclock in Win 8/10 should change the score. The old version had a "fix" for that behaviour by calculating the TSC frequency on a regular basis, so it successfully adapted to bclock changes as well. Also, NOT A SINGLE ONE of my flaws was addressed with the new version: https://www.overclockers.at/articles/intels-xtu-analyzed

    Sorry, only all package goes at once. They are the result of many years of searching and binning, the cost was huge, in money and effort ...

    K might change it to positive temps than iso stock cooler... also gonna lower the processor clocks to 4500ish speeds so the CPU has lesser impact on the outcome
  10. 5 points
    wow...stock coolers WTF I pull off the stock cooler and chuck it in the trash first thing for all legacy cards. I think you need to open up the cooling method and stick with software based GPU temp limit of +15c or something in that range.

    Thought it was time to start collecting information in one place about this new miracle IC that the OGS guys used to smash the memory frequency WR. There are a bunch of different IC codes for "8Gbit Revision E" and while the characteristics should be broadly similar there's definitely some variance - not sure how much of that is down to binning for kits and how much is down to differences between different Micron models (JEDEC bin, temperature bin, maybe package?). These are found from micron's ic code lookup tool, and model numbers are interpreted with the help of micron's 8Gbit DDR4 datasheet. The known standard (1Gx8 layout) Rev.E IC codes, excluding Z9 series ES chips, are: D9VPP - '075' JEDEC bin code, no extended temperature code D9WFL - 062E' JEDEC bin code, no extended temperature code D9WFP - '062E' JEDEC bin code, 'IT' extended temperature code D9XSP - '062E' JEDEC bin code, 'AAT' extended temperature code D9XSJ - '062E' JEDEC bin code, 'AIT' extended temperature code D9XSK - '062E' JEDEC bin code, 'AUT' extended temperature code C9BHS - '075E' JEDEC bin code, no extended temperature code (=D9VPP?) C9BJC - '062E' JEDEC bin code, no extended temperature code (=D9WFL?) C9BJZ - '62M' JEDEC bin code, no extended temperature code (these ones are on the WR sticks) It should be stressed that these aren't all necessarily available, they just show up searching for part numbers. There's also C9BHR - '083E' JEDEC bin code, no extended temperature code. Micron's site lists these as Rev.H, but it's possible this is an error - usually IC codes with the first 4 characters the same would be variations of the same IC (eg D9GTS/D9GTR/D9GTN). 062E is 3200C22 jedec bin, 075E is 2666C18 jedec bin, 075 is 2666C19, and 083E is 2400C16. The 62M jedec bin code doesn't seem to be documented. Temperature wise IT/AIT, AAT, and AUT are rated from -40C to 95C, 105C and 125C respectively. ICs without temperature codes are rated for 0C-95C, this doesn't necessarily really mean anything though. Micron 8Gbit Rev.E has been reported, to my knowledge, in: 8GB Ballistix Sport LT 3000 15-16-16 (multiple users in the r/overclocking community have these) 16GB Ballistix Sport AT 3200 16-18-18 dual rank (recently reviewed by techpowerup) 8GB Ballistix Elite 3600 16-18-18 (WR sticks) Overclocking characteristics are: Apparently no CB/CBB Scales with voltage Very temperature sensitive At least the low bins seem to need high tRCD A couple of different r/overclocking users have reported 3600 14-20-16 1.45V on AMD using the 3000 15-16-16 sticks. This is really interesting because it suggests a reasonable amount of variation if the lower-end sticks need tRCD 20 for 3600 whereas higher-end sticks can do 3600+ at tRCD 18. My personal theory (and I realise it's a bold one): the 62M JEDEC bin code on C9BJZ might be like elpida's MNH and MGH codes seen on 1Gbit Rev.A DDR3 indicating the unofficial 'HYPER' bin - that is, the result of some kind of sorting done at Micron/Crucial for OC above and beyond any official JEDEC bin, separating ICs of the same design that exhibit similar characteristics but with a big difference in the typical numbers. I'm currently busy testing some 3000C15 Sport sticks that I picked up today, but I'll try and keep this post up to date as more information comes to light 🙂

    Yes - no cb/cbb and they scale with voltage big time! No need to heat them up to pass post/get into windows either.

    But wouldn't limiting cpu clocks so much mean whoever has or finds the best 1080ti will win Div II, III, IV and V. All you need to do is go to Best Buy and pick up whatever core cpu you're missing and return for full refund. I thought the point of Divisions based on core count was to make it more inclusive and maybe attract some new blood. Don't know how many guys out there chose to build 2 and 4 core rigs with $600 gpu's. Should be like we used to do 2 core w/ GTX xx50 ti or xx60 / RX 570 4 core w/ GTX xx70 or xx70 ti / RX 590 6 core w/ GTX xx80 / Vega 56 or Vega 64 8 core w/ GTX xx80 ti / Vega 64 or Radeon VII

    Was my first time setting a comp from scratch so that led to some mistakes. I didn't bother stating a monitoring tool because I didn't think I needed to as people should just be able to follow the rules, but if people want/need more structure then that's what'll happen. There's no real cost to running hwinfo as far as I'm aware, so may as well make it needed for all submissions, Leeg has just updated the OP. As Leeg said, I'm sorry for being slow on this, and I've also no issues extending it, @superpatodonaldo mentioned the fact the rules currently don't allow for disabled cores so I've changed that now.

    Ok so go GPU score and just disable points maybe that might stop any issues with the standard hwbot ranking. Also disabling cores is fine, seems like it would increase participation so all good Have edited the OP. People happy now?

    As usually, people always talk about half of the topic and do not go into details that things changed - 4133c12 now works 1t on new BIOS-versions with tight settings because there is a new option (trace centering), and if you work with bclk you can go higher. Boot at 4200 divider and higher dividers only works 2T with some workaround settings. On top, you need a decent imc especially for bclk oc or good rma connections. Searching for a 4266 12-11 1t a2 kit is useless because chances you get there are extremely low when you have to work up from 4133. If BIOS-Versions improve more, then it could make sense because imho very good kits which do 4266 12-11 gb3 2T now will also succeed 1T at better conditions

    Both 2000C7 and GTX2 were sold within an hour of posting ... looks like I'm not the only one looking for Hypers Based on my personal records of 18 sticks of 2000C7, plus 15 sticks of GTX2, it seems that the latter are generally worse on tRCD limits, yet generally better on voltage. Of course, there are exclusions in both directions. For example, the 2000C7 I just sold needed much less volts than the other sixtreen 2000C7 sticks that I had, yet also had worse tRCD limits. But, let's be honest, in the benching ranges of Hypers (1050 6-7-5 and thereabouts) tRCD limits don't play a role and +/- 0.05V on the voltage isn't too critical. That's why I kind of stopped binning for lowest voltage (fact: the lowest memtest voltage Hyper stick that I ever had was sold in this thread, two out of three lowest memtest voltage Hyper sticks that I ever had were sold in this thread, 4 out of 6 lowest memtest voltage Hyper sticks that I ever had were sold in this thread) and focused on trouble-free experience with as many platforms as possible.

    @richba5tard has sorted it, so you should be able to enter 3DM11 Entry GPU score, and Sky Diver GPU score, then both heaven and 06 as normal. Apologies for the bumpy ride, but hopefully it'll smooth out from now on

    I think we can ditch the CPU temps for this, we just need CPU MHz verification and GPU-Z with extra sensor tab displayed to highllight the GPU temps

    Hello, Up for sale are 3 8700K's i found from a few dozen pieces i binned lately. Binning was done on water and for those 3 pieces i delidded them and replaced stock grease with liquid metal Conductonaut. Room temperature was 24-25 degrees with a good water cooling, obviously not as strong as a hailea chiller some guys use but my results are always comparable to other wc solutions or AIO. Motherboard used was Asus Maximus XI gene with llc6. I would also like to add that the voltage i mention is the one that i set in bios or turbovcore, the one that cpu-z shows is lower, for example 5500@1.34V set in bios resulted in a load cpu0-z voltage of 1.296... 1., Nr.1 Best one i found and also best one i had ever on water. Does cinebenchR15 5400@ 1.28, 5500@ 1.34, 5600/5300 cache @ 1.44V. , 5400 cache also worked but did not screened it Beside the amazing core this cpu has a killer imc, it can train and boot 5000 in Dual-Channel! and also train and boot 5200 divider in single channel. 2. Nr.2 Vietnam batch, really solid and it actually also did 5600 three quarters of run at 1.49 however temps went over 80 and it crashed. Does cinebench R15 @ 5400@1.31, 5500/5300@ 1.38V Strong imc as well, can train and boot 5100 divider on water single channel. 3.Nr3 Solid cpu as well, pretty close to nr 2 but 5600 would not go, might be because one core is hotter than the others and i have to reapply conductonaut better, who knows. Does cinebench r15@ 5400@ 1.33, 5500@1.40v Strong imc that will train and boot 5100 divider on water single channel. Prices are : 1. 700E 2. 500e 3. 450E Prices include shipping in Europe and i can shipp till 23 may, later i will be in Taipei for 2 weeks so if you decide in this period your cpu will be shipped on 7th of June. Payment via paypal or bank transfer ( would actually prefer Revolut). Cpu's will be properly packed and shipped unlike the french method shown on some thread here :))

    Looking very carefully at the pictures, I have to say something that attracted my attention. For Heaven's sake people, please do not think that I am taking sides here. Just trying to be as objective as possible. The packing is as good as it can get. No one that wants to be objective can doubt it. I have received a couple of processors from other sellers, with a lot worse packing and they arrived alive and well. As Mr.Scott said, there is no way that the cpu might have been damaged during transportation. These pictures, so honestly taken by the buyer and explained, can't substantiate any claim from the transportation company. Cpu was damaged either prior to shipping or after receipt.

    Yeah since disabling cores is allowed it's a free for all on CPU as far as I'm concerned, just run the bench at 4c and <5003mhz.

    Tests were done on Apex X and Apex XI with several cpus, 8600K, 8086K, on all voltages I refer to vdimm in BIOS of these boards. The boards are quite precise on setting voltages which I could check from start with reference kits I used. All results were obtained with cpu on air or H105 aio and a 120mm 1200 rpm fan for memory cooling if I used higher volts
