  1. Hello Dear Overclockers! Some of you may already know - we have small overclocking community in Georgia - Overclockers.ge ( http://www.overclockers.ge ) and we are doing our part in the world of OC. I wish to share our success with you too. About two weeks ago, local university organized LGA2011 stock cooler overclocking championship final stage and I decided to show young overclockers how it's all about extreme OC. That time local frequency record was 7350 MHz, I decided to break it. First time I used Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 motherboard and despite its pretty unpredictable nature, I managed to tame it and done 7999 MHz - http://hwbot.org/submission/2519435_ At the university OC championship, Gigabyte MB refused to turn on at all. To compensate for that, after 3 days I decided to make a livestreaming OC event, this time with my old ASUS Maximus Formula. MB is quite old, with RMA on its history once and changed chipset, which loves a bit higher voltages than normal for stability. I expected to just jump over my previous 7999, get in 8000 MHz league and show young overclockers everything in live event. Here are the Hardware used: MB: ASUS Maximus Formula (X38 Chipset) - Flashed Rampage Formula BIOS, Unmodded Stock MB, no Vdroop, Vcore, OVP mods CPU: Intel Celeron 356 - Batch: 5634B341 Pot: Kingpin Cooling Dragon F1 TIM: GC Extreme RAM: 1 x Team Xtreem 512 MB, Micron D9GMH GPU: Zotac GeForce 9500 GT PSU 1: Inter-Tech CobaNitroX 750 Watts PSU 2: Codegen 350 Watts - for fans only Thermometer: UEi DT304 Apollo IV OS: Totally stripped down WinXP SP3 and LN2 ofc. But then my old Maximus Formula begin making wonders... Booted flawlessly @ 8000 MHz and made higher results possible - http://hwbot.org/submission/2520651_ Then it was 8133 MHz - http://hwbot.org/submission/2520654_ Then 8262 - http://hwbot.org/submission/2520655_ 8292 - http://hwbot.org/submission/2520656_ Breaking 8300 MHz barrier - http://hwbot.org/submission/2520658_ And the top result for the day - 8322 MHz - http://hwbot.org/submission/2520659_ The result has been a great success for our community. Considering that the CPU is unlapped and MB is stock, there seems to be some room for improvements. I plan to lap CPU and pot, do Vdroop mod to MB and try again. As of Loadline Calibration it gave worse results. 8322 MHz was done with Loadline Calibration disabled. Here you can watch the 3-hour session on Youtube: Here are the pics taken during the event:
  2. Thank you everyone for good words! At first live session was intended just to show local fellow overclockers how it is all about extreme overclocking in live and was expecting to jump just over my previous set 7999 MHz but then my old Maximus Formula begin making wonders... Booted flawlessly @ 8000 MHz and made this result possible. Very strong MB despite its age, RMA years ago and a bit high voltage lover chipset. FARID Did not have multimeter at hand unfortunately but MB had huge Vdroop definitely. BIOS set 2.15000V CPU-Z reported 1.95V. When set 2.25000 in BIOS, CPU-Z did not recognize voltage at all. Tried setting 2.27500 too in BIOS but stability got worse. Also, setting Loadline Calibration to ON gave worse results regarding stability. TaPaKaH Dunno really I only have stock Box cooler for LGA775, did not try pushing it on air but I'm sure it will do good on air too, very decent batch it is. As of LN2, no CB or CBB even @ -188-190 degrees.
  3. Thank you Yes, my old Maximus Formula did the great job. Very happy and proud with it.

  6. Many thanks guys! TaPaKaH Batch is 5634B341 FARID ludek111 Unfortunately no X48 board at hand this time. Will try on X38 Maximus Formula with Rampage BIOS flash soon. Maybe it will do some more.
