  1. Safe? Where's the fun in that? C6H EC revival (thank you Elmor):
  2. My C6H is unresponsive. BIOS update failed. Flashback didnt help. Pressing PWR or any other button motherboard doesn't power up. Where can I find the EC ROM file to try and fix it? Thank you. // UPDATE Re-Flashed EC EEPROM with new EC ROM via external SPI programmer and C6H is alive again.
  3. Oops, looks like tiny little capacitor C2009 also got hit closer to the south.
  4. I have found only 3 SMD caps, but I cannot find the resistors. Can somebody please measure their resistance ?
  5. Hi. While installing a cpu cooler it slipped from my hand and fell on the backside of an Asus RX470 Strix card. As far as I can tell it tore off the solder (and thankfully not PCB copper pads) about 6 SMDs. Can somebody please share or measure the parts missing on the attached picture? Much appreciated. J
  6. There is nothing better for Nehalem CPUs than Otti's pots.

    [EU] EVGA SR2

    This is a beautiful beast. I would love to run and carefully tease it, if for nothing, then at least out of nostalgia. The price is a bit steep for me though. Let me know if you would change your mind about it.
  8. Clever. Can you send it to my email "aerou at hwbot dot org" , please ? Sent from my MI 5 using Tapatalk
  9. Hi! I got the particular BIOS with Extra Performace menu by directly contacting SuperMicro Support. They are very kind and responsive. You can do so yourself (and maybe even get a newer BIOS) or I can send you the C09 version I have.
  10. Hey fellow overclockers! Would someone share an airbnb with me for the world tour? - I am not bringing HW gear with me, but I could help someone with insulation, LN2, soldering etc.
  11. Did you delid it? Or any other HW mods? High voltage? Try it in different motherboard?
  12. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1209396 Anyone who wants to give it a try?
  13. It is set at 1.4Vcore and LLC5
  14. Thanks for the BIOSes. It really is a joy to push cheap chips into highend performance:
  15. Keep'em coming. Let's celebrate all them i3s, Pentiums and i5s being unclocKed. Here's my i5 6400 being set free: 1.4 Vcore LLC5, aircooled
  16. Anyway, I flashed the 1.0c aka C09 aka 8th December BIOS and voila: Quick test with i5 6400 running 150MHz BCLK x27 = 4050MHz. Also its funny running 3200MHz DDR4 on a H170 motherboard http://valid.x86.fr/v493br
  17. I contacted SuperMicro tech support. Got a quick response and a BIOS. According to them, them BIOSes aren't posted online yet, because they still undergoing validation.
  18. Hi guys. Where can I find BIOS for Supermicro H170 or Z170 boards? I want to to try and boost my i5-6400, but the boards have old BIOSes and I can't find any new online. If anyone knows where to find them, can you please post a link? I see DHENZJHEN running November BIOS and then a December BIOS, so I guess he got it somewhere. I have October BIOS and the whole Extra Performance Menu is missing. Help would be very appreciated EDIT: GOT it! http://forum.hwbot.org/showpost.php?p=421966&postcount=6
  19. Hmm. Guess I panicked too soon. Something was wrong with the BIOS. CMOS clear didnt help. But after reprogramming with the i7 6700K all works fine , even the i5 6400. BIOS 113 works, 120 works and 141 works. All is good now. Quite odd though. Maybe during components swapping, moving around , touching the MB etc., some electric charge got to the the BIOS chips and messed up some code, which caused it to derp with i5 but not i7 K?
  20. Dont think so. CMOS cleared right after LN2 session over. And about million frustrating times since then I isolated it down to a CPU/motherboard combo. I have another i7 6700K to test and an Asus M8G. For some reason i5 6400 + Z170 xpower cant reboot, stuck at 00 or 30. But if I swap for an i7 6700K the same Z170 xpower reboots normally. The i5 6400 that cant reboot on the xpower works fine and reboots on Asus M8G.
  21. Did this happen to anyone with this board? : I did a quick 30minute LN2 session on 6700K (just for an exhibition). Well insulated, nothing got frosty except for the pot, obviously. Warmed it up, deinsulated, cleaned. Tested with the same 6700K, all fine. Now I come home, pop in an i5 6400 CPU and it cannot reboot/reset. Straight from the poweron it shows "00" postcode, sometimes "30". I have to power off psu, let it discharge, switch PSU on again and then it boots fine. What the hell? I am very careful with hardware and I really cant recall doing anything that could cause this effect. The board seems fine in oter aspects / once it boots it passes all stability tests and all devices and peripherals work.
