    Just got my systems cooling upgradet and new SSD/HDD drives in it. The new cooling alowed for a higher 24/7 OC also now.
     
    System spec is:
    I7 980X @ 4.42 GHz
    Noctua NH-D14 with 3 120 MM fans mounted
    ASUS P6X58D Premium motherboard
    12 GB corsair triple channel 1600 MHz DDR3 ram (6 X 2 GB)
    2 X Samsung 950 PRO M.2 NVMe 256 GB SSD for OS and games.
    Crucial MX300 2 TB sata SSD for games
    WD AV-GP 2 TB HDD
    WD RED 4 TB HDD
    EVGA GTX 1080 TI SC2 GAMING
    Thermaltake ToughPower 1500 Watt PSU
    Antec Twelve Hundred case
    Windows 10 PRO 64 bit 
    And a bunch of Corsair ML120/140 fans and 3 NZXT SENTRY 3 fan controllers.
     
    Old dusty fans and fan controller.

     
    New fans and controllers

     
    New CPU oc and temp that is still in the high end but its same temp as before where the cpu only ran 4.2 GHz vs. now 4.42 GHz.
     


    The system with the new fans and controllers installed.
     







     
    Hardware around it gets replaced and worn down like fans and HDD. But X58 it self just keep going strong.

    Yeah only 4 pin in the 8 pin is not optimal at all for overclock. Deffently get a 8 pin plugged in before you go any furher and melt wires or damages other things.
     
    But yeah 1100+ in CB R15 is great for at X58 cpu.

    A little update to the post i made on June 17.
     
    After i got tempature sensors from the fan controllers sat the correct places, i saw something i dit not like. Motherboard chipsæt got fairly hot in the very hot summerdays (over 35 degress celsius in the hottest time of the day) we have where i live right now and then mix the high out side temperatures with a high clockket CPU at 4.42 GHz at 1.41 volts and a GTX 1080 TI that can put out a good amount of heat (when oc op to 300 watts of heat) when i game. I think you can guess that chipsæt gets pretty toasty when the pc is under high stress like demanding games or benchmark.

    So i had two options either lower OC on CPU and GPU or put some fans on the chipsæt. I chose fans on chipsæt and in the same round i replaced the cpu cooler fans as well to get the CPU cooled properly in these hot summerdays with out have to lower my OC.

    So these are the new fans i got. With a high static pressure as well a CFM. These are perfect for the job. Noise is a bit higher, but noctua can make high performances fans without the high pitch high RPM fans else can have. Dont get me wrong, they are still loud a max RPM, but they have a more pleasant sound than the old Silver Stone FM121 120 MM fans i used before that suffers from high pitch.
     


     
    So after another replacing of fans, the systems looks like this now. Try to look pass the cable ties holding CPU cooler now. Had to do it else the cooler would hit the small fans on chipsæt and make a bad noise. Yeah as a fellow nerd you properly know how it sounds if something hits a fan, not a nice sound. But oh boy are cable ties great for other things than holding cables.
     


     
    So here are what is new other than cpu fans. Chipsæt now has fans and the fans next to GPU as exhaust is now 60 MM fans, just cut not find any one in black so had to take what i cut get.

    Jesus boy. You are comparing a low clock Xeon at only 2.66 GHz vs. 4 GHz AMD cpu. Over clock that Xeon to 4 GHz and it is another story entirely. And there are properly not many running X58 with stock CPU today either.
     
    Besides take a look at the scores for my pc then and then tell me again X58 sucks for gaming . In the test CPU is clock in at 4.25 GHz in this test.

    The small screamers Arent so bad. They are more silent than i would guess them to be. They are there for suck hot air away from GPU (since this card is not with radial fan, those small fans take some of the hot air out in sted) and keep the hot air away from the two m.2 to pcie adaptors for my two M.2 SSD. happy hardware is cool hardware right.
     
    The 3 controllers is because they have there own funktion. They have a tempeture sensor so they can run fans on auto but i can off cause take over manuel as well. one controls case fans (temp sensor on chipset), one controls CPU fans and the last one controls fans around GPU. That way the hot parts gets cooled properly depending on load and heat in sted of all fans ramp up and down. With 3 controllers i can control fans more specifik to the given hotest part under load.
     
    And yeah i love X58. It just keeps going and have served me well since 2009 where i started out with a I7 920 to this day. So in return i want to help it being cool under stress and as you may know chipset on X58 gets pretty hot when x58 is under high oc.

    Intelfreak got a reaction from xenic in i7-990x combo value?   
    Im not totally sure the value, but last year i got my hands on at bundle that contains:
    I7 980X
    Asus P6X58D Premium motherboard
    12 GB of triple channel Corsair XMS3 1600 MHz ram
    Noctua NH-D14 cpu cooler.
     
    Asking price where what is like 230 USB or in my currentcy 1450 Dkr. including shipping for all of it. That where in Denmark i found it in a local paper sale.
     
    I will say you cut bay it all and then sell that I7 990X. For the price you can get for that shut give you around a buget that you can get something like 2 or maybe 3 Xeon X5660 for.
     
    By the way i love that bundle i got and that motherboard in that bundle you can get is one of the better oc board as well. Having my I7 980X running 4.42 GHz at 1.42 voltage. At those speed its a pretty neat cpu still, but be aware at those clocks X58 CPU's needs great cooling and airflow + they get power hungry. But can you live with that, X58 is fun to play around with.

    Intelfreak got a reaction from M300843499 in I7 990X won't OC over 3.9ghz   
    I can confirm about oc and voltage. The i7 980x i have runs 4.25 ghz at 1.35 volt and right now 4.37 ghz at 1.4 volts. I dont use stock cooler, but a Noctua NH-D14 with 3 fans mounted. that keeps the CPU temp with in 75 C on the hottest core with fans at max speed.
     
    As far i have seen, x58 xeons tends to oc better cause they have better binned die.
     
    This is the settings i use in bios for 4.37 GHz at 1.4 volts. All throw my memory dosent run so fast. But i chose faster clock speed over higher ram speed. The settings i use now are the bedst mix. The image below is from my own asus bios.
     




     
    That gives me a score just above 1000 in cinebench R15.
     

     
    I have pushed it to all what the cooling i have can manage before its throtltes. 4.75 GHz at 1.55 volts resulted in 1103 score in Cinebench R15.

    no dont do that.
     
    two sticks will run dual channel while the last one stick will only run single channel and can cause performance slow down when that stick is in use, The only platform you can get away with 3 sticks with out performance loss is X58/LGA 1366 cause that platform as the only one has triple channel ram support.
     
    for dual channel al ways run 2 or 4 sticks.

    Noooooo. one of my two beloved X58 systems just died today. Psu gave up and send a overcurrent throw the motherboard (Asus Rampage 2 extreme ROG) and fried it together with the I7 920 CPU i had in it and i where else planning on getting a Xeon 6 core CPU for it and i had just got my hands on a second Samsung 950 PRO M.2 SSD to replace the aging SSD in it, but i guess that 950 PRO will be put in my main X58 system in sted then. So i am only on one system left with a i7 980X oc to 4.37 ghz.
     
    In the memory´s of it. A few screenshot of it. Its really sad cause as you all know X58 is an awesome platform and know i have to look after another second gaming rig for when friends comes over or if the main rig has problems.

    Agreed Samsung 950 PRO is the easy way to get M.2 NVMe SSD to work on X58. Im using two right now in my X58 system. One for OS and one for games. There are other ways to get others to work like a modded bios or third party software booted from USB. But 950 PRO is the safest (because you dont have to risk third party software or bios going bad and fuck up your motherboard in the proces), easiest way and in my opinion bedst way to M.2 on X58 that also can be booted from. Sure you dont get full speed be cause of PCIe gen 2 speed limits per. lane but its sure as hell way better than sata raid or the crappy marvel sata 3 controller + you dont have to fiddle with power and sata cable with M.2 SSD.

    Point i was trying to make was:
    1) samsung 950 pro is a plug-and-play device. I’m aware of other possibilities of getting other nvme drives working on x58, but samsung is the easiest one!!!
    2) If the mobo supports sata3 there is no point of investing $250+ Into nvme drive, unless the x58 is used as a professional workstation, but as a professional workstation it is a bit out of date
    3) any adapter will work with no problems

    Intelfreak got a reaction from CPUguy101 in i7 920 upgrade or bust.   
    Overclock the crap out of it. Be aware of that there are two revision of I7 920 CO and DO. CO is the least overclockable cause this revision usaly needs higher voltage than DO to do the same overclock and that means more heat development. With a good air cooler I7 920 DO can do about 4 GHz. I had I7 920 DO that cut do 4.4 GHz but keept it at 4.1 GHz to keep temp with in safe limits.
     
    Else ass other told al ready get a 6 core I7 or Xeon like the X5660. The xeons can be found on ebay for dead cheap. I replaced my I7 920 DO to a I7 980X last year and oc it to 4.25 Ghz also on air cooling and dam this chip flyes throw all the games i can pull a gainst it also Far Cry 5 it runs like a champ at max ultra settings and 1600P together with a GTX 1080 TI card.
     
    Just to give you some help.
     
    This is my old setup with I7 920 at 4.4 GHz.
     

     
    And as i ride this down i have FC5 open as well.
     

     
    This is how my system performs in the build in benchmark at 1200P, 1600P and 4K resolution with settings set to ultra. 4K really kills the GPU throw.
     



     
    So yeah with a good overclock your I7 920 shut handle it much better. And if that fails one of the 6 core X58 chips with a nice 4 GHz+ oc can deffently do it for sure. Hope this can help your desision. I can really just say that a change to 6 cores and a nice oc really gives X58 a new life again.
