Lesson 2 of the Core i5 and i7 Overclocking Videos is Online!!!

Posted by Michael Cooper in site news , personal , Overclocking

Michael Cooper

Yesterday I said that Lesson 2 would have to wait because I had missed one of the shots.  It occurred to me, earlier today, that I could just use one of the shots from the 2009 videos. 

Here's the video Lesson 2 - Cooling, Stress Testing and Benchmarking

I'll start recording Lesson 3 late tomorrow. Michelle and I are going to the OB tomorrow morning and we should find out the sex of our baby.  Very Excited!

Update 2PM.  It's a girl!!!

Lesson 1 of the Core i5 and i7 Overclocking Videos is Online

Posted by Michael Cooper in site news , Overclocking

Michael Cooper

Lesson 01 - Cooling, Stress Testing and Benchmarking is online now!

Lesson 2 is finished with the exception of one shot that shows pressing down on an Intel cooler to get it's pins through holes in the motherboard.  I missed the shot, somehow, while we were filming.  I'll get the shot when we go to replace the Intel cooler with a 3rd party one for Lesson 4 in the series.

Lesson 3 is written and I will start recording it tomorrow.  It will be online by the 26th, possibly sooner.

Overclocking: More Results

Posted by Michael Cooper in Overclocking

Michael Cooper

At 3.5GHz with stock voltages the Core i7 is stable, but the temperatures are very high.  Running Prime95 the cores get up to 92C.  It is stable, but that temperature is just too high.  I tried going to 3.6GHz, but to do that I needed to raise the CPU Core voltage from it's stock 1.2V to 1.3V.  At this point the temperatures shot up to 100C and the CPU automatically lowered the multiplier to keep it from getting damaged.  The CPU cooler I'm using is the one that comes with the CPU from Intel.  It does a good job at stock speeds and even moderate overclocking, but I need a better one to continue.  I've ordered an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 from Newegg.com.  It should arrive on Tuesday.  Until then I'm going to keep working on the first and second lessons.

The first lesson will cover the basics of overclocking and will be a similar format to what you see in our Home PC Builder 2009 component lessons. 

The second lesson will be in the BIOS, showing and explaining all of the settings that are available to overclock and getting the CPU overclocked to 3.5GHz.  

The 3rd lesson will show installing the 3rd party cooler we have on order and then overclocking the CPU to 3.6 and then 3.7GHz.

The 4th lesson will show overclocking to 3.8GHz which may be the maximum the CPU can handle.  We will try 3.9 and 4.0GHz, but from what I've found on the web it may not work, at least not at safe voltages.

Don't worry, we are going to cover every step just like in the Home PC Builder 2009 videos.  After watching these new overclocking videos you will be an expert.   The first video should be online by the 14th and the rest will be online by the end of December.  Customers with online access to our videos will be able to watch them at no additional cost.

Initial Overclocking Results on our Core i7 system

Posted by Michael Cooper in Overclocking , motherboard , memory , CPU

Michael Cooper

I was able to get it to 3.5GHz at all standard voltages. That a 30% improvement over the 2.66GHz stock speed.  The RAM is slightly overclocked to 1403MHz.

I've run Prime95 on it for hours with no problems.  It's completely stable. 

We're writing the first lesson in the series and it's coming along nicely. 

My next overclocking attempt will be to get it to run stably at 3.7GHz by raising a few of the voltages.  It did try 3.6 and 3.7GHz at the stock voltages, but the system rebooted after running Prime95 for a few minutes.

Cleaning your Computer Inside and Out

We were about to start working on the Core i7 overclocking videos and noticed our Core i7 system was covered in dust inside and out.  Several questions have been asked about cleaning a computer over the years so it was the perfect time to make a video on the subject.  This video will be online only and will not appear on a DVD.  The same goes for the overclocking videos we will be making over the next few months.  Maybe if we get a bunch of new videos together we can make a DVD of them but plan on getting them online only for the near future.

With the cleaning video done we are now hard at work on the Core i7 overclocking videos.  They should be available by the end of the month.

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!!!

I'm taking the wife and kids up to my parents house in Belton.  We will be eating turkey, honey ham, mashed potatoes, green bean bake, sweet corn, cranberry sauce, deviled eggs, and home made bread.  Michelle and I were up until 3AM last night baking the bread.  We made two loafs and one is almost gone.  I saved the prettier one for taking to Grandmas.  It's got a great crust so Grandpa will love it.

Hopefully I can manage to watch some football today, though I doubt I will have the time.

I hope you all have a great day. Gobble Gobble.

The site was moved to new servers yesterday.

The site was moved from 32bit to 64 bit hardware and seems to be running a little faster.  Does anyone else think the site loads faster or is it just me?

Posted by Michael Cooper in motherboard , Hardware , CPU

Tom's Hardware has a roundup of 7 sub $200 x58 motherboards.  This is $100 less than most higher end x58 boards.  If you're on a tight budget you might want to take a look at this.  By giving up a few features, you don't care about anyway, you could save some cash.
