i found a listing for an EVGA SR2... it's too much money for me but some of you might be interested. 

it's in the netherlands though...

If only it wasn't €650. I'd go to the Netherlands and pick it up if it was cheaper.

if it wasn't that expensive i would have bought it already xD

@Zando Bob @Crunchy Dragon Figured I'd update you guys. For the i7 950 I've settled on a 3.83 Ghz. I can't verify for certain that the system is stable any faster than this because I keep running out of heatsink. This all aluminum AIO is way better than the 92mm tower cooler for sure as far as long run stability but upon further thinking, and switching to a real nice 6GB XMS3 ram kit that I didn't know I had, all of my stability problems went away. I think that 1066 Mhz budget kit that came with this board just really didn't like running at anything other than its rated speed.

 

Where I'm at now, I'm not touching any of the frequency settings from where I've gotten them to, and I just keep lowering the voltage and running P95, trying to find a spot where it wont go over 96*. I'm at 3.83 Ghz at 1.288 volts, and the hottest core is at 95*c with it having peaked at 97*c so I think I've found my max.

 

EDIT: until the W3690 shows up ;)

it's a nice card for what it is. it has a big limitation though. the 2GB vram available. and the performance is quite crappy in games that don't support SLI. 

 

i would say only get it for experimentation purposes. the 2GB vram thing really holds it back in modern games, and most games now don't support SLI.

That's the same bottleneck I hit with my 1050 and 660, the 2GB of VRAM can be quite limiting. In fact on the 1050 I think it actually holds the GPU itself back, it's actually pretty darn powerful for it's size, even the 660 is surprisingly strong for it's age. Just swapped my 1050 Ti in though since I'd like the bit more VRAM for better textures.

I miss my old 660Ti. That was an epic card. The 1050 Ti I’ve got in my ssf hp is a beast too. Framerate in FH3 at 1440p is only about half of my 290X.

Heck yeah, 1050 Tis pack a lot of punch for their size. I have an EVGA FTW card too, incredibly overkill cooler (dual fan with three good sized heatpipes and a full finstack across the whole card) and an extra 6 pin power for basically no reason because sadly Pascal won't let me push the card as hard as possible. My first GPU was a single fan 1050 Ti that just ran of the PCIe slot, still performed like a champ.

My X5690 is overclocked to 4.5Ghz and with a GTX 1060 3GB it runs most 1080p games at 60FPS with no issues.  I do have it watercooler though. 3GB is all you need for 1080p unless there are huge textures. Wish I had the 6GB version.

I'm running D2 at 1080p High with 60fps on a 1050 Ti and i7 950, I do get fps drops here and there but it's usually pretty solid.

I scooped a EVGA B-Stock 1080 Gaming SC before RTX was announced and stuck it in with my X5675 at 4.6ghz, have never seen it bottleneck in anything short of lower performance in games with really poor multithreading. Happily keeps a 144fps+ experience at 1440p ultra on Doom and usually brand new games give me at least a 90-120fps experience on high settings in any game I've thrown at it so far.

Ooooooo... 8700K on Z170, modded BIOS I guess? 

 

I'm still gonna be on X58 for a good while yet tho, but I do have some X99 stuff arriving tomorrow. Tbh may just jump Intel X series chipsets for a while yet since they're just fun to mess with.

I mean you've got a claimed 16+2 phase VRM so those shouldn't be the issue. Is it just not letting you change settings or what? On X58 you usually pump up the BLCK once the multiplier is maxed. BLCK will change the CPU core speed, uncore, and RAM and such. Doesn't effect PCIe, apparently upping that can help but 110 is about the max you wanna push, I usually run 103 or 105.

A hardware mod or what?

 

I gotta solder some pins on my EVGA Classified 4-way SLI V1.0 to let it work with Westmere-EP CPUs as it's a hardware issue, was fixed on the V1.1 and newer but I can't exactly RMA a motherboard from 2009 anymore.

I have a w3680 in my asus p6x58d-e with 48gb ram, but I can't seem to overclock that cpu whatsoever. what settings are people using for that particular cpu?

Are you on the latest bios? Some older, common microcodes will fail to post if you change the Uncore multi.

 

What do your settings look like which aren't working?

X58 Classified 4-Way now working with a Westmere-EP 6 core (W3670). Had to solder two sets of pins together since mine is a V1.0, but now I can repaste the chipset heatsink since I had to remove that, then put it all back together and try some overclocking with disgusting voltages if temps will allow. In a week or two I hope to have a watercooling loop on the CPU (360mm slim rad, Watercool Heatkiller IV block) so I should have a heck ton of thermal headroom. For now I'll use a Cryorig H5 Universal since it's the biggest finstack I have that works on LGA1366.


 If you wanna discuss the X58 platform and get tips and advice: General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion. If you want to discuss old Star Wars games like Battlefront II and KOTOR, check out my thread: Anyone still playing old Star Wars games? 

 

Long live his RGBness, @Damascus! And Fractal Design/SeaSonic dude, @Ordinarily_Greater is awesome as well! Also the man who introduced me to the glorious XCMR, @WhisperingKnickers.

You know what? I keep forgetting that I'm a damn adult- and have been for years- so i can buy dry ice at the store and shove that rad from the 120mm aio in a bucket. Should do me some dice cooling. I don't think you really need to worry about condensation so much with that like you would LN2.

Yeah, shouldn't condensate too much, I'd just put some paper towels around the socket to catch any stray drips, and see how it goes. 

 

As for my PC, sadly the CPU doesn't wanna hit 4.5 no matter what voltage I throw at it, either I'm an idiot (highly likely), or I should try one of my X5675s or my X5670.
