I tried updating my BIOS. no dice.
tried 6 times with the file downloaded on to a flash drive.
it worked a few weeks ago.
this time I kept getting the message that it was not a BIOS file.
then it stopped seeing the flash drive.
Some really nice photos of a naked 6700k
Just finished and waiting for adhesive to cure. (About 2 hours) then see if I have destroyed my chip. If by luck it survived the operation I will see if it was worth voiding the 3 year warranty
These were the things I dine to achieve the 7k+. wishing you luck and hope to see you break the 7K (but don't break my score )
easier to show:
Apart from the max overclocking of the hardware I also turned off all eye candy on Windows and stopped all unnecessary background programs after letting Windows sit idle for 30 mins to allow updates and checks to finish. Tweaked max performance profile. Nvidia control panel global settings were changed to maximise performance. I found that my 6700 while oc to 4.8 had better score with the cache speed at 4.5 or 4.6 but took slight more voltage to run stable.
How you getting on with the 7k? Not seen any updates from you over the last few days.
