  1. On some boards max voltage also depends on the strap and mem divider. Few days ago I bought a board that won't go above 1.40V on strap 266 with 1:2 (and hence maxes out at 900-ish IMC) while 1.60 is fine with 333 and 1:2. Go figure.
  2. Yes and no. Assuming the board is alive in the first place (which is a very big IF), I take 10MHz variation from session to session as acceptable. Which can also be down to variation in NB cooling (due to insulation) or weather on Jupiter. I've noticed that some of these boards are extremely PSU-sensitive. Also, if you shut the PSU off, then on first cold boot (or run up until the first major crash) you tend to get slightly better clocks. From where I am sitting, I am actually baffled as to how people get these boards to do 600+ 32M with Wolfdale on non-LN2 cooling. It was never possible here in a reliable way, even with CPU under single stage, so I even stopped trying and am using a Conroe to pretest boards on single stage. Yet, the same Wolfdale setups can easily do 640-650 5:8 with CPU on LN2 all day long.
  3. PSU can also play a role. For me, the older boards tend to perform way better with my first-gen Silverstone OP1000 than with any of the newer shits
  4. Maybe you weren't drunk enough on the second attempt? Or the NB wasn't cold enough. Even small variations of temp seem to make a difference.
  5. If you really want to have some good E8600 scores - let's buy some beer and have a session together with my chip. I really want to see how high the fucker would go as I felt that I was limited by mainboard/FSB on my 7min13 32M run.
  6. https://tweakers.net/aanbod/2148818/ There's one in NL for 180 pesos bundled with an i7-970 and 12GB of crappy Kingston.
  7. Yes, thought I'd give a 2V823 chip a try ...
  8. Z87X-OC sold. added some reject E6400, E8600 and i7-950
