    Sure, I get all this. I've build a few OC rigs in my life too. The question is about this "sweet spot" you mentioned before and how to get there (not above, not below). I agree that components' OC...

    Can you please give an example of such a "graph" and explain how you produce it (the steps you take etc.)? Is it a single graph for each component, or do you combine the graphs for several...

    Thanks again! Best PSU is a truly great advice. I've had PSU troubles twice and those cause very nasty errors! I follow the rule that your PSU should be never loaded more than 80% (at peak!) and I...

    Yeah, Asus Deluxe boards are great! Never heard about a failing one. Congratulations :) I kept my P4C800-E for over a decade just for fun and it was still working! Then the IDE drives died and I...

    Thanks Korth! So what you're saying is that OC could be almost as durable as a stock setup, as long as you don't take the OC to the limit. Logical, but how far can you take it without too much risk?...
  6. Thanks pal! Congrats for your healthy CPUs!...

    Thanks pal! Congrats for your healthy CPUs! Interesting that I had a Gainward card that died on me but it was before GTX 580. Perhaps not the best brand CPUs... Taking good care of the rig is a very...
  7. How durable is an OC build? What is your experience?

    Hi guys. I just wonder... What is your experience with aging OC components, i.e. when your rig is getting older than 2+ years?
    Which is first to fail? CPU, GPU, RAM, MB... and how do you prevent...

    FYI: I switched back to the first BIOS chip and ... it did the same "iROG 1 is updating." PC is still working. Here's what I found about iROG 1:...

    Hehe... funny you should ask about that, Arne :) The MB is manufactured in 2012, but I replaced the BIOS battery already when clearing the CMOS first time, so it's been brand new most of the time...
  10. It's alive!

    Gents, this is a hell of a story... read on if you're curious.

    I started disassembling the rig and removed everything but the foundation: MB, CPU, RAM, OS, then I decided to give it one last try....

    Ok then... I'm currently working on digging up the CPU. Let's see what happens. Thanks.

    I just wonder... Since I cannot get into the BIOS at all, is it fair to assume that the MoBo is causing the problem?
    I mean, if it was anything else, even the CPU, then I still should be able to...

    It surely looks that way... unfortunately. I've tried what I could think of clever ideas, and I was hoping that there may be other tricks (you never know all of them). Again, what puzzles me is that...

    No, unfortunately. The process doesn't seem to reach the point responding to my Del/F2 hits. Switching the BIOS did not make any difference, so it's just the same behavior. I haven't tried flashing...

    Hi Arne and thanks for your lightning response!

    Yes, I've tried clearing the CMOS, the boot device is OK and I also tried disconnecting it (and other HDDs too)... no difference.

    I'm pretty sure...
  16. R4E: Won't boot after unexpected BSOD 124 (after 3 years of flawless function)

    Hi guys.

    My custom built rig has served me flawlessly the past 3 years. The other day I experienced a sudden BSOD code 124 while rendering a video, and now it won't boot.

    The post stops after...
  17. R4E: How to get straight into the BIOS on startup?

    Hi guys. My R4E was working just fine for several years ... until yesterday. Now the post halts after initializing all HDDs with Q-code b2. But never mind that.

    I need to get into the BIOS but I...

    X99-E WS question

    Hi guys,

    I'm building a new X99-E WS rig and I'm having issues with the latest BIOS 1102 (probably bugs, behave just the same on two different boards).

    I'm not sure where to take this problem....

    Rampage IV Extreme - tricky boot behavior

    This rig is 4.8G OC Prime stable (also passed the ROG test etc.), and it's running 24/7 @ 4.7G rock solid. No crashes or any troubles, and I'm running pretty heavy software on this rig.

    However,...

    Unless your PSU is faulty, I don't believe lack of power is your problem. On my R4E, I'm running a similar configuration with i7 4960X @ 4.7GHz 24/7, GTX Titan Black (OCed), 2 x DDC, 16 x 140mm fans,...

    I'd suggest you ask Corsair about that. I've experienced similar PSU "buzz" before and I ended up replacing the PSU (it shouldn't make such noises). However, I'm not familiar with the RM1000 and for...

    I've had mine passing 60C without noticing any problems. I'm no sure why you're curious about all that, but like most electronic circuitry, I'd believe that PCH should handle at least 60C (perhaps...

    I believe that as HW/SW evolves, the RB would need to be upgraded anyhow in order to stay capable of serving its purpose properly (since it's not based on some "timeless" design/code). The only...

    Yes. It's a dilemma. However, I'm not sure if multiple scoreboards are really needed. The impact probably would be marginal, and those interested to stay current on the board can simply rerun the...
