    ObscureParadox's Evolving Sale Thread

    I can put a random E2160 in as a socket protector, I should have some binned CPUs I can sell somewhere too if you're interested. I also have plenty of good DDR2 ram kits I was going to put up here tomorrow

    Sandbagging is not the be all and end all, you can even screw yourself over by sandbagging since the server doesn't do too well with people submitting hundreds of scores at the same time

    Sandbagging is just part of the game, you guys need to learn to push to the max and nothing else, if you're holding back or thinking a score is "good enough" then it's your own problem and nobody else's.

    +1 to this please, I understand it might be a pain to do but it makes it a lot easier for various teams to be able to organize things internally.

    Random question, will the competition page be exclusively on OC-Esports or will it also be on the main site as the old school comp is?

    it's time to revive this classic from MSI

    It's been over two years so I thought it a good time to bring back one of MSI's greatest ever and most convincing advertising campaign in years.
  11. Nice review, can confirm been using their kits for a little while now and half always been impressed

    EP45T-Extreme or DDR3 UD series

    Hi all, as the title said, I'm looking for either a EP45T-Extreme or EP45T-UD3P etc just so that I can do some CPU testing. If you have one you'd like to sell then give me a shout.

    I have a half dead one Doesn't work with 45nm anymore
  15. Not to worry, thanks for the reply

  17. @richba5tard does this make it an easy fix for the old hall of fame threads for the old school sockets?
  18. @nox did I send you those chips by chance? I can't remember who I shipped my 400+ Corsairs too :P

    Titan Xp Dead card?

    Hi guys, looking for some advice from the electrical engineers in here My friend has shipped me her Titan Xp which has died in her as she stated she'd knocked a cap off and it stopped working. I have replaced the capacitor and its still not booting, not even getting power to the core itself. Are there any common faults I can look up with these cards or like I already assume is the card more than likely done with? Any advice on where to start would be appreciated

    What are you looking for, high stability with Super Pi or high max MHz? I have lots of kits do can probably help you find what you want

    Price check on 8700K

    Hi guys, you might have seen in another post I have a decent 8700K and was just looking for a price check from you guys. Facts ; OEM chip Not delidded 5.3GHz 24/7 stable @1.34v (not tested lower yet) 5.4GHz cinebench R15 stable @1.39v This was done with a H115i using the stock paste that's pre attached to the block head. It was also tested over this winter with 13c ambients for what it's worth.

    Price check on 8700K

    I think it was the one built into XTU so can't remember what that is. I can run again and try prime over the weekend
  24. True but with this being in my 24/7 system I don't really want to get extra parts for it unless I know I have at least some chance of getting some money back with selling on afterwards. Also I've not been paying any attention to XOC for over a year now so OC bins is something I am very out of the loop for with regards to the current platform. Update though, 5.4GHz cine @1.4v straight from bootup
  25. Hey guys! So I only recently got back into the latest hardware trends etc since I am generally an old school overclocker. But on building my new Coffee lake system for my 24.7 rig I couldn't help but give the CPU a go. Now I have done only a couple of days of testing so haven't maxed anything out yet, but I am currently running 24/7 stable clocks @1.25v which is completely stable through all AVX testing. I haven't delidded it yet or tried anything crazy beyond a simple core voltage setting and a quick multiplier increase. From what I've seen from the likes of silicon lottery etc they normally run a -3 multiplier on all AVX running so does that make my CPU better? I did a quick cine R15 run with 1.35v and 5.3GHz is happy to run all day long, doesnt quite finish at 5.4GHz however. Just curious if I sell this on to someone who might make more use of it or if it's not really worth an LN2 overclockers time! Thanks for your time. Lewis.
