    For any Skylake-x processor, the Extreme or Apex are good choices. Silicon Lottery rated my 7820X at 4.9GHz and I regularly get to 5.2GHz in benchmarks. I think a 7900X rated at 4.8GHz would...

    I get that sometimes - lots of BSOD and hangs when everything seems to check out. The latest was just yesterday. In that case the CPU was delidded, as yours is. When I checked core temperatures,...

    You may have an issue of comparing apples to oranges. The game that gives 75-77C at higher voltage is not a CPU load that compares to XTU. XTU uses Prime95 as its stress test -- a notoriously hot...

    The Wprime and Geekbench stages are a little short - good scores, but not enough of them.

    I'm still working on a CPU frequency entry. Anyone not already in that stage, feel free.

    Looks like good, compatible choices, and great for gaming with that 1080ti. Custom water loop cooling is a great choice and fits right into the M10F crosschill. I suggest adding a sensor for water...

    The basic question - What is the criterion for stability. In my opinion, it's stable unless it isn't. For my competitive overclocking, it's stable if it runs the benchmark and different benchmarks...

    Neither offset nor adaptive are necessary for speedstep to work 'properly'. Speedstep will change the core clock frequency as long as Speedstep is enabled and Windows is set for the Balanced Power...

    I guess you're using a SkylakeE CPU that is supposed to see all 4 DIMM slots. The 7740X is a 2-channel CPU that will only see slots C and D, but slots A and B are the ones working right.

    Which of...

    Good OC, and yes, delidding is critical for stable working above 5GHz with 4 cores let alone 6.

    Futuremark has had manufacturers, usually of handheld mobile equipment, cheat by programming their video to recognize a 3dMark test and run it in an unusually optimized way. As a result they now...

    I agree with JustinThyme that AOI is inadequate for the expected 300 watts, plus GPU. I also think that, at the 300 watt level, no water loop will cool the CPU well with all that baby poo under the...

    AkaNe,

    meankeys beat that CPU Frequency score. His is now the highest for that socket/chipset. I'll have to drag out some other motherboard to get back into that stage.

    A guess here: The overclock that worked had a raised Vcore and had some AVX instruction setback of core multipliers. After clearing CMOS, Vcore is running lower and AVX setback is zero. The result...

    The distinction in the specs and user's guide is between 'ports' and 'headers'.

    DRAM Voltage in TurboV Core with R6A

    I mentioned this in another thread a few days ago and now have some screenshots to illustrate the issue.

    The rig is as in my signature - R6A, 7820X, DDR4-4400 DRAMs. TurboV Core version is...

    The REAL drawback is the low power rating of any PSU that has only one 8-pin motherboard cable. The R6A and the CPUs that run on it are power hogs with all their cores, whether overclocked a little,...
