@Troika Give that new CPU some more voltage and watch it come alive.  Here is a number for reference.  This old tech is bullet proof.  No worries about hurting it, especially at $27.

I really need to remove the heatsinks off my fastest memory and dump some more voltage at my R15 and R20 runs, I wasn't giving it over 1.5v since I'm only using my NH-D14 in a mediocre Corsair 450D as it's my personal build. I didn't have fan speed control at the time, doubt they were even at 70%. It got nice and toasty in the high 90's but being a full tenth of a volt under everyone else with similar scores, I'm sure there's more left in it lol.

 

HWBot could really use some more scores, I think I'm still #1 on Westmere for R20.

I need a better cooling solution first before I can push it more. This is also my only computer so I don't want to break somethink I can't replace easily.

I got my i7 970 today, picked it up for a nice $27 on ebay. I knew it was gonna be better than a i7 920, I just didn't think the difference was gonna be THIS massive. 50% over my maxed out i7 920.

https://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/21047394/fs/20401988

I managed to get to 4.33Ghz but it crashed as soon as temps hit 85C so it could be that I don't have enough Vcore or its just getting too hot, could be both. Either way, I'm gonna need better cooling if I plan on pushing over 1.35 Vcore. Right now, 4.14Ghz is plenty fine at 1.3V.

Some other numbers:
CB R15: 950 @ 4.33Ghz | 891 @ 4.14Ghz
CB R20: Failed @ 4.33Ghz | 1877 @ 4.14Ghz

Yeah as they other said to you, dont be afraid to punnish X58 CPU´s. They can take a good beating. Intel reccoment 1.4 volts to cores as max for the 32 NM gulftown chips as your new I7 970 is based on and My own I7 980X that i feed 1.43 volts for 4.4 GHz for 24/7 use over 3 years so far and it has never shown signs of dying. For benchmark i have even feed it 1.55 volts for up to 4.75 GHz and my old i7 920 i have OC to 4.4 GHz as well in the last two years i had it. They can take some punishment is properly the point of my comment.

 

My acchivements with my I7 920 and i7 980X. Clocks vary a bit, but to show that punishing X58 CPU´s dosent mean they dies on you that easly.

I'm more concerned over the board failing because its expensive to replace, even more so considering its a MSI Big Bang Xpower. Trying to pick up another board of that level for a decent price will be neigh impossible. I bet its $200+ for a comperable replacement.

Quite often yes, but it you just snoop around a bit you can find them free (I was given that Xpower in a PC from a relative, others have had luck looking around locally), snag good deals on various forums and stuff like Craigslist, or even eBay. I got an EVGA X58 Classified SLI 3-Way for $90 with an i7 920, and that board is on a level with or above the Xpowers.

If you are using your x58 board as you daily driver and it is the only pc you have do not try to push it to 4,5-4,7 ghz with 1.5 volts, even if the cpu is an easy replacement the good motherboard is not. If it burns just let it go. The modern cpu’s are more powerfull and much more power efficient. At the time of high ddr4 prices x58 with ddr3 was a good alternative, but nowdays ddr4 is not that expensive And if you are not trying to break memory overclocking records it is not that expensive to get a 3000+ mhz kit. 

Ryzen5 or coffeelake i5 cost just over $150 with a motherboard for around $60-100 it is not that expensive. And it delivers more or less same multithread performance as 6-core x58 and a greater single core performance. And if you now what to do you can run coffeelake on 100 series motherboard (and they are dirt cheap)

I really wish you could get ryzen stuff that cheap here, just a 1600 by itself here is around the 100 quid mark, it actually worked out cheaper for me to move up to X79 than it did to go ryzen personally but that's just wacky pricing over here as usual

for other stuff it's not so bad tbf, i think it's more just because ryzen has been in demand for a while for budget systems more than anything, i got my P9X79 pro and the E5 1620 (placeholder till the 12th since a friend offered me his 4930K for £35, can't say no to that) for like £120 shipped, just need a better cpu and another 8gb of ram to bring me up to 32gb and I'm all set

All

Just found this thread, loving it,  and I am sort of getting ready to up my x58 set up.  Building a new PC and will give the x58 to my 14 year old son. 

Asus p6x58 delux

Intel 950

Cooler master (212?) with push pull

12 gigs ram

 Corsair 850w P

 various drives including an SSD (what a difference that made!),   card reader

 lightning fast GTX 460

 Cooler Master ATX case. 

I will need to get him a better graphics card but I have picked up a 980x to drop in after I get the other build done to give us 6 cores (waiting on an adapter from Noctura, coming from AU so 3 weeks for the new build).  I have never flashed the BIOS so that will be the scary part for me.

 

I built this system 8-9 years ago and wanted it to work for me for a while and its still going strong.  The last gaming I did was COD 3/4 back in the days and I have never updated the GPU (did have to replace one that died).  I think with the children growing up maybe I will get a little time to game again?

 

New build for longevity, getting the years of video of the family edited, maybe that gaming!  I will most likely only over clock to see what head room I have and then bring it back down.

9900k

Gigabite z390 designare

seasonic 850 modular ps

bunch of ram

Noctura NH 12 

Define R6 usb c

I have a 850 EVO to use as the boot drive.

 

Waiting on price drops for nvme drive 1tb

video card

will add some spinning HD and a Optane 32g NVME to accelerate one.

 

Might take the 950, find a used mother board, create a server for the house (NAS) (and maybe a mine craft server for the family, daughter likes to play also, but I think that might be better if run from the 9900)

 

Let you know when I make some progress.

Hello fellow x58 owners! I'm in the middle of putting some life back into my 2009 build.

 

Just replaced my i7 950 with a xeon w3690 gaining two physical cores and 4mb cache as well as significant speed, and replaced all my hdd and SATA ssd with a single Samsung 950 pro m.2 on a pcie x16 adapter. Next I'm upgrading ram to 3x4gb ripjaw x and gpu to a single card.

 

Asus p6x58d-e motherboard

Xeon w3690 cpu

Ocz Reaper 12gb (6x2gb) ram

2x Msi gtx 960 4gb oc sli gpu's

Kingwin 1000w PSU

Cooler master hyper n520 cpu cooler

Cooler Master Haf-x case

 

I use my computer for HTC vive mostly. Occasionally I'll render a video or do a large photoshopped project. 

 

I'm looking to overclock once I drop from 6 sticks down to three and benifit from the triple channel optimization.

 

I still have my old stuff if anyone is interested.

You can still get solid overclocks even with 6 dimms so no real reason to wait there, nearly all of my clocks have been done with 6 dimms since 12gb of ram just isn't enough for me and 8gb dimms are expensive so all but 1 of the 9/10 X58 systems I've run have been clocked to at least 4.4GHz on 6x4gb and more recently my R3G one at one point was running 4.8GHz with 6x4gb still, I'd say just go for the overclock anyways

6 sticks should work just fine in triple channel. I have the same motherboard and I don't have any problems with overclocking.

I have 6x4GB sticks running at 1600MHz and my Xeon X5670 is overclocked to 4.4GHz (22x200).

I have 6x4GB 1600MHz sticks on mine, running just fine at 1720 MHz. They worked fine up to ~2150 but I did lose communication with one stick at that speed, so went back to the 8x multiplier and it's been fine since. I don't think the IMC can handle that much ram at that speed without more voltage than I was willing to pump into it.

 

8x memory mult on 215 BCLK, 4.5ghz (21x215) BCLK for CPU.

 

If your CPU and Board can take it, these systems run MUCH snappier with higher BCLK and lower multipliers.

Likely an unused sensor/header, there's usually one or two on most mobos that read reeeeeally weird temps depending on the software.

I got my Mac Pro trash ram to do Cinebench runs at this, mismatched because it won't post at default settings. I daily it at 180x25(4.5ghz) @1.4v at 1800mhz 10-10-10-28-2T. Westmere's IMC really isn't bad. It's just rather picky in my experience and trying to get it to play nice with memory made like 6-7 years after X58 debut that there's no way was ever supported by your bios will take trial and error or some luck. For what was like the first DDR3 consumer platform or first with an IMC? You kind of have to expect that though.

 

I've always had extremely good luck jamming as many mismatched dimms as possible into these boards and getting them to run at 1600mhz with some acceptable CL8/9 timings. As far as the higher speeds other people get though, with my G.Skill Pi Series I never could break into the 2000's. I've never had my hands on any of the newer high end DDR3 though.

Hello fellow x58 owners! I'm in the middle of putting some life back into my 2009 build.

 

Just replaced my i7 950 with a xeon w3690 gaining two physical cores and 4mb cache as well as significant speed, and replaced all my hdd and SATA ssd with a single Samsung 950 pro m.2 on a pcie x16 adapter. Next I'm upgrading ram to 3x4gb ripjaw x and gpu to a single card.

 

Asus p6x58d-e motherboard

Xeon w3690 cpu

Ocz Reaper 12gb (6x2gb) ram

2x Msi gtx 960 4gb oc sli gpu's

Kingwin 1000w PSU

Cooler master hyper n520 cpu cooler

Cooler Master Haf-x case

 

I use my computer for HTC vive mostly. Occasionally I'll render a video or do a large photoshopped project. 

 

I'm looking to overclock once I drop from 6 sticks down to three and benifit from the triple channel optimization.

 

I still have my old stuff if anyone is interested.

^^^ Bunch of us have successfully run 1080 Tis on this platform, bottlenecks hard at 1080p though due to the CPU, and 1440p it's better and at 4K it'd be pretty fine.

I've got the old i7 950 and the 12gb of ocz reaper 6x2gb and two msi 960gtx 4gb oc. Two 6tb seagate hdd, 15k rpm cheetah hdd, wd 1tb & 500gb hdd, and a ocz 60gb ssd. 

 

 

My memory is reading as dual channel. I was under the impression that anything more than 3 sticks sends it back over to dual channel but I could have bad info. Triple channel is strange but paired with the six core processor seems to be a nice mate from what I've read.

 

I was going to pick up 4x4gb sticks of g.skill ripjaws x 1866 and use 3 sticks as they seem to be the best ddr3 available from reviews and I wouldnt loose any capacity.

 

I'm new to overclocking but I'd love to get this thing cranked up once I get everything settled. Dropping to one gpu and 3 sticks of ram from 6 along with removing 6 hard drives will really free this thing up. 

 

With the cooler master haf x and the cooler master hyper n520 cpu cooler I was hoping to air cool oc my w3690 3.47 to 4.0 stable. I'm new. More of the "out the box builder" but I'm here to learn. I'd rather learn to oc on this build then the new one I plan for tax time 2021.
