  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. https://tweakers.net/aanbod/2148818/ There's one in NL for 180 pesos bundled with an i7-970 and 12GB of crappy Kingston.
  6. Yes, thought I'd give a 2V823 chip a try ...
  7. Z87X-OC sold. added some reject E6400, E8600 and i7-950
  8. I sincerely hope that the entire design team of ASUS X48 boards catches a disease unknown to medicine and dies a slow and painful death in a country where euthanasia is illegal. Had two X48 boards in storage, one RE and one P5E3prem. Bought a CPU I wanted to test. Both boards show code 00 and don't POST with any CPU I try ...
  9. Added a decent i7-930 and a Z87X-OC. P55A-UD6 price further reduced.
  10. Added some Q6600s from recent binning spree, plus some i7-920 and 2500C9 Patriots
