  1. 711 fsb 1M kinda tells me there is much more to come, given that you already showed off 710 fsb booting... Excited for what is coming next...
  2. Have you tried any of the really low end gigabyte p45 boards too? I wonder if they can get anywhere close to 700 as well...
  3. oh there are also platforms where you can drop channels in such a way all tools but taskmanager fail to detect how many channels are currently populated (making a certain tc stage a couple years ago quite pointless...). Can see in Taskmanager(due to capacity) and bios only one out of 3 sticks is detected, yet cpu-tweaker and cpuz detect all 3 channels as populated and running at high frequency...
  4. so old rankings will be impossible to beat with CPUs that are impossible to validate as allcore with HT on? I see CPUz valid just like memory frequency, only goal is CPUz showing the frequency in the valid, no matter how that is achieved. Off course having a seperate category for allcore + ht valid would be fine I suppose.
  5. thats the first time I heard that... just a pain to get running on many x48 boards.
  6. https://bartxstore.com/product-category/extreme-cooling/ https://www.burningoc.de/reaktor https://shop.bitspower.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=68_356 I think those are the only sellers currently, but its always an option to try finding a used LN2 pot as well
  7. I just use RWEverything since it is all you need to modify for lower density is Byte 4 and Byte 5 with ddr3 and its the simplest to use (in my opinion) for basic spd mods like that. SPD Backup is obviously the first thing to do once you modify sticks like this! SPD mods are underappreciated sometimes
  8. While I figured out how to get the sticks “running” again, I’m anything but satisfied with the solution I found. I noticed while experimenting with the damaged 1866c7 that it wouldn’t reliably run windows 7. @Digg_desuggested it might be accessible memory related - so I reduced the available memory on the sticks via a modded spd to 1GB per stick (512mbit with DR - not losing any efficiency in the process). Suddenly they booted windows 7 without issue, and even work again on the R3E (R3F not tested yet but I’d bet it works there too). HOWEVER, it appears that I now need a bit more voltage
  9. Disabling memory recheck with a working stick+damaged stick results in the same behavior as with the jedec stick; windows 7 still bluescreens on asus x58 with the problematic sticks.
  10. just tried this. With normal sticks, the board boots straight up. With these, it loops training 3-5 times but completes post. In bios, all 3x2 gb get detected (or 2x2 if only testing with 1 of the problematic sticks). Once xp is booted, cpu-tweaker detects triple channel yet only shows channel A. Win 7 64 bit bluescreens a couple seconds after loading desktop, with both configurations. OS works normal with only the jedec stick. I have not yet tested performance in XP (and won’t be able to today sadly) but I am not sure what to expect.
  11. Hello, I recently wanted to finally properly test my 2000c7 Hypers and decided to try run them on my trusted R3E with W3680. But one of the sticks refused posting - first thought was obviously shelf death or transport damage. With cleaned contacts exact same issue. Swapped to R3F with different CPU - still unchanged. Moved to x58a-oc - suddenly stick works perfectly fine. Compared SPD with the stick thats working correctly, no differences. Just for fun decided to dig out the DOA stick of 1866c7 I got in a recent purchase - and off course, runs 32M as as it should on its own as well as wi
  12. CPU or board limited now? Curious if you'll push it further and if so how much :D
  13. Sale cancelled. Can be closed.
