Hey everyone!

I am currently going through about 2000-2200 LGA775 CPUs in a few packs. Got 600 as a start.
I had some ideas, methods and had chats with some old 775 pro fellas about binning them, but I feel deep inside me that at least 2 types of them are not binned correctly.
So dear 775 past, or present binners there, share your ideas on them.
Here's what I started with and what setup I used:

E2140/E2160/E4300: Asus P5E3-Premium mobo. TRUE Copper cooler, no retention, no paste. Highest FSB posting with 1.400VTT, 1.800PLL, 6x multi, 1.35Vcore
E6600 (65nm Core Duo ones, not revised ****ty Pentium): Asus P5E3-Premium mobo. TRUE Copper cooler, no retention, no paste. Highest FSB posting with 1.500VTT, 1.600PLL, 6x multi, 1.35Vcore
E6750: Asus P5E3-Premium mobo. TRUE Copper cooler, no retention, no paste. Highest FSB posting with 1.500VTT, 1.600PLL, 6x multi, 1.35Vcore
E6300: Asus P5E3-Premium mobo. TRUE Copper cooler, no retention, no paste. Highest FSB posting with 1.500VTT, 1.600PLL, 6x multi, 1.35Vcore
E5200: Gigabyte EP45-UD3P mobo. TRUE Copper cooler, no retention, no paste. Highest FSB posting with 1.440VTT, 1.500PLL, 6x multi, 1.35Vcore
E7200: Gigabyte EP45-UD3P mobo. TRUE Copper cooler, no retention, no paste. Highest FSB posting with 1.440VTT, 1.500PLL, 6x multi, 1.35Vcore

Thanks in advance for any inputs guys :)

Thanks for sharing this David!!!

Would really love to learn the ins and outs of air binning. Does air binning only work for 775's or does it also work for other processors, sockets, brands?

Pretty sure there's at least one or 2 others who've done this kind of stuff...hoping others reply with thoughts, ideas, etc.

Sub'd!

We talked about that but he only has 7 posts. He did join our group at HWBot.

@funsoul: thanks Stef for the nice words, really!
@Earthdog: kudos for you too, no problem for not being able to help.
@Johan: Ikr, I totally understand how and why these rules work like they do so. It's just unlikely that I'll ever make my post count up to the desired level in the foreseeable future. I hardly make 2-3 comments a day locally on HU forums. I have no problem communicating with anyone in English 1 by 1, but it scares me a bit to comment in a forum where there's almost only natives. That+lack of time.

Any time dude! You're an awesome bencher and I'm glad you came over. Don't worry about your english skills...you speak it better than a lot of americans hehe

That is a good question... I also wonder if it's actually worth the time and effort /boint to do so much. I would really take a look at the big boint CPUs, and also look at what the team is missing/can do a lot better on and focus on binning those.

I am only binning 50 pointers. And even from there not all, I skip the ones I hate. All of the CPUs above are 50 pointers.

How I got them: connections, connections guys! :D Asked someone who had that many if I can bin them, he said yes. Only have to buy like 2-300 from the 2000.
If it's worth it? Found air 515FSB E2160, under very weak weak phase 560FSB. Found many gems from different típes too. No FSB wr E6750, but found incredible MHz/volt units.

I think I pic is in order. I want to see what a room with 600 processors and a bench set up looks like....seems like a pain just to organize them all :)

How're you progressing with the binning? Hopefully others chime in but I will certainly be following your procedure whenever I get back to 775/771...I've still got a few 100 to get through :/

Tried out your binning method :) Had some overheating issues with just a heatsink on the cpus so re-tested all of them with the chips under a waterblock.

The binning seems useful so far...at least to id the chips worth further exploration.

e2160binning.jpg
Chip #4 looks like the only one worth actually trying cold.

e4300binning.jpg
Only have 2 of these. #2 looks pretty bad but that's the one.

e6300binning.jpg
Chips #3 and #13 are the only ones that look ok?

FSB's across the board seem pretty meh but wondering if the limits are due to the low cpu voltages (1.35v)? Do you think any of the identified 'good' chips will actually be decent enough to be competitive?

Also...trying to figure out binning settings for other 775 skus. Seems like kicsa is adding 0.2v above the default PLL and VTT? Is that pretty much how to figure out what settings to try for binning?

Thoughts?
