Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

Ok, just played some DOOM, the 7900X package/cpu core @ 66/65c.
OC'ed @ 4.8mhz, vcore voltage @ 1.3v, HT on, all 20 cores utilized ... nice!!!
This will be my stay with oc 4.8mhz... Until further notice...
This maybe a golden chip. Not only the most powerful cpu @ this time,
but mine is also a great oc'er. With the help of the ASUS PRIME X299
DELUXE it was made possible ... by the by it will post in windows @ 5.mhz.
@ 1.4v... better cooling who knows where this chip may go...

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

New stable 4900 mhz oc. Vcore 1.35v, all core sync @ 4.9mhz.
all the stress test + DOOM where package ran around 68c ...HT off.
Oh yea I'm loving me 7900X along with the Prime X299-DELUXE mobo...
I'm very glad I went this route, now I will wait and see, how the ROG EXTREME
VI APEX mobo turns out. Nice to have a real interest in oc'ing/gaming again...
I believe a lot of bad reviews from folks on the net, are from not putting in the work.
Of fine tuning the bios. I've really worked this cpu, even to changing
mobo's. Many, many test, different Volts, and many different bios settings.
It paid off, I'm now @ 4.9mhz oc @ 1.35v...

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

Yeah Skully congrats. That is amazing. It kinda tells a story though when the Intel ARK list has the 7900X 10 core doing 4.3GHz Turbo whereas the previous 6950X 10 core was listed at 3.5GHz Turbo. That is a good OC indicator right there. Still I find it strange that such a large CPU and heat spreader is not soldered. My new 5960X has the hole in the lid meaning it is soldered.

Intel XTU is good in that is shows the cores, cache, and something else not throttling. I would pay attention to this. Maybe you can select to run Prime95 and see if it throttles. On another note, waiting for AIDA64 to have Skylake-X support.

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

Thanks guys, Yep I use XTU quite extensively, along with prime95.
I'm also waiting for AIDA64 to have Skylake-X support. I wonder if
HWMonitor is working right with the Skylake-X? Yea I never thought
for a minute that I'd be setting here posting @ 4.9mhz on a 10 core
processor called the i9- 7900X ...

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

Do you have a wattmeter for when you are loading? UPS maybe?

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

I sure would like to see what the 8 core Skylake-X would do without HT. But it doesn't matter. I would probably wait a year for the boards and BIOS to get cleaned up a bit. I just can't get rid of my RVE10 right now.

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

I just ran XTU @ 4.9 MHZ oc, package/cpu stayed mostly in the 70C's
flicking up into the 80c's, but stayed mainly in the 73-76c range. I did play
DOOM @ 49mhz oc yesterday for an hour. This is a golden processor
from what I read others are gettting. There is an adaptive setting in the
bios, one can use, I tried it while @ 4.9 core setting. And what it did was
run the processor between 4.5 and 4.7mhz. To low for me I wanted the
full monty of 4.9MHZ ... I believe this new speed shift tech is maybe
the case of all the flickering of temps and such...

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

Yeah looks like you got a good one again Skully.

Here is the area in IXTU I was talking about. I tried IXTU and AIDA64 and both time I hit a max of 400W temporarily. It was very intermittant but it was still the max. If you hit Run Benchmark in the middle it will use your current settings and not IXTU's.

Untitled.jpg

BTW, that review I posted here had your mobo/CPU hitting 541W at 4.5GHz.

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

I have my KIL A WATT watt checker plugged in at the wall. With my rigs power plugged into it.
My highest reading is 398 watts, with CPU-Z stressor going full
tilt, all 10 cores running 100%, oc 4.9mhz, Using IXTU to check out
the reading on me cpu while CPU-Z is stressing it. Maybe you didn't know,
IXTU will give ya the readings off of any other cpu stressor, if ya bring IXTU
up, while said stressor is working your cpu. A really neat feature. A guy on
utube delided a 7900X, and could only get 5.mhz out of it, with water cooling.
I can get 5.mhz, I can't bench it, or stress it. Time running I hr and 3 min,
package 97c to 101c with no throttling as of yet... The cpu will throttle @ around 105c.
My temps are staying mostly around 98c ... Highest wattage @ the wall on me
KILAWATT is 398 watts with 10 cores @ running @ 100% 4.9, oc Oh yea the core voltage 1.35v

Now 1 hr 16 min and still running, ya might call the 4.9 OC STABLE...

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

Nice Skully the old Kill a Watt doesn't lie...that isn't bad at all, my rig gets to about 325 watts fully loaded with a kill a watt, but that's with my monitor added to it !

Re: * Intel i9-7900x *

One saving grace is my open air rig, with a nice horizontal mobo.
All this heat in a closed case even with fans wow!! My room ambient
temp now is 79f... Winter will be nice an cozy ...
