Impressions about Ivy Bridge

Postposted on Sun Jan 27, 2013 7:15 pm

Hello again :)

I'm here to share my results upon upgrading my rig a few days ago, I've managed to tweak it a little bit so you guys can tell me what still can be done.

My benchmark results, I used SiSoftware Sandra so we can compare the stock vs the OC version (OC are bold):

Specs: (stock)
i5 3570K @3.4GHz
8Gb 1600MHz CL9
GTX560Ti @880MHz/2100MHz

Specs: (OC)
i5 3570K @4.4GHz 1.35v
8GB 1866MHz CL11
GTX560Ti @975MHz/2300MHz 1.05v

So what do you guys think? Is the OC on the CPU decent enough? (I find 1.35v a little to high for just 4.4GHz but I'm using a previous generation board so I don't know...)
The SSD array presents decent values?

Any coment and advice is welcome :wink:

The default voltage running at stock in Prime95 was 1.2v reported in CPUZ. I'm not sure I can't go up because of the motherboard or the PSU. What is the max safe voltage for an Ivy Bridge CPU?

Yesterday I ran more 30 minutes of Prime95 and the CPU never went up from the 70ºC

I guess I'm getting some nice values compared to a top of the line SSD :D

Wandering a little bit over MSI forums, I found that most people disables Intel C States, at least while trying to achieve the maximum OC. I let those on while overclocked because I don't want the CPU always at 4.4 :o
Should I turn it off and try another effort in OC, run prime95 for stability and then turn them on when its all fine tuned?

If anyone has a MSI board and overclocked a Sandy or Ivy could you leave you impressions here?

Thanks

Ahahah :D

Decided to go with stock voltage and turbo modes, better to have saving power features only for 100MHz, it doesn't justify :wink:

I go with not worth losing lower multipliers. I like that my system idles at 1200 mhz when I'm not doing anything. The max multiplier for 8320 is 43 multiplier so I have to use blk overclock for to get anymore which disables pwr saving.

Yesterday I made some discovery, got into cmd and set "fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify" and the returning value was 0, meaning TRIM is enable... Is it normal? I thought that INTEL was only releasing TRIM in RAID for the new board chipsets. Can some one confirm this? I have the latest BIOS and drivers.

Made some tests, it implies that TRIM IS enable, although not working at all :( No 7 series chipset no fun.
