Test Configuration

Prolimatech Armageddon Mount

Today’s testing was performed on my interim X58 review platform. I’m
using an Intel Core i7 980x on the Gigabyte X58A-UD7 with the F6 BIOS. An XFX GTX 470 with the NVIDIA 197.75 drivers was used. For the idle/load testing the CPU was left at the stock 3.33GHz with 133MHz bclk and a 25x multipler. Turbo was disabled and the cpu vcore was set to 1.05v, vtt was set to 1.15v, and vdimm was set to 1.65v. For the overclocking testing vcore was set to 1.25v, vtt was set to 1.20v, and vdimm was left at 1.65v. To eliminate as much stability issues as possible I solely used multiplier overclocking.
