^ if you can get over the x58 (1366) mb cost, the i7-920/30/40/50 is running less than $40. The 920 is less that $10 The is you get to keep your current memory (DDR3). The BAD though is good memory still cost $$$. You can still find some GEMS like Gskill - 2000 _9-9-9-27 (BBSE) for $25.You make it tempting to go shopping good sir. Atleast cheaper GPU's seem to becoming a thing again. Might lead to a better used market soon. Which Z87 Board?
I know on the benching side we have fallen behind, here and on the bot :-( The monthly overclock-ta-gon is currently on hold and not sure of when it might start back.
On the Side - Our Folding team is super hot right now
WOW g3258 @ 4.6ghz.. I was lucky to get a 2nd one to 4.7ghz under SS. I did delid it.. not sure if that might have stop it OCin.
So from the top, with 8pin CPU power and 24pin ATX power, if you try to turn on the board(power button) it comes up for about .5 second then the supply trips. CPU in or out doesnt matter. Disconnect cpu power keep the 24 pin connected, board will power up but never post because the cpu isnt powering. I've dug all through the vrm, cant find a single bad component, all caps are good all inductors solid, nothing shorted, even checked the caps in and under the socket, no problems.What would the chipset have to do with power for the CPU? Also 9.5V............Sounds...deadly. Are you talking about what your PSU is outputting?
I can put 12 volts on the 8pin and nothing smokes, voltage isnt shorting there, it's only when the start button is pressed and pci/ram/ect tries to power up. The 8pin alone wont trip a bench supply.So.......the 8-pin EPS isn't coming close to spec (5% +/- 12V) before tripping... but the PCH is the problem?
Not sure where the problem is, but sounds borked.
