STAGE 7!!!! Finally this epic saga of a computer build is almost at a close (Though nothing like as epic as DST's 10,000 millennium build X)

DS managed to get the overclock to an astounding 4.7Ghz with the H100. To me it seems that two factors are in play here. 1) The H100 is dominant over the Noctua for the 3930k chip. Perhaps its a surface area thing, perhaps water just works better with the hex-core config, who knows! But it seems it must be true. 2) DS is really masterful at tweaking with the H series, moreso than the noctua

Either way, I'm up a HUGE .8Ghz than my prior expectations, and at 4.7Ghz on a stock 3.2 chip...

love you guys.

I still plan to get back to you guys on noise levels and temps if I bring the H100 fans down to medium!

@bpratt22, yeah I ate my words on that one haha, let it be known to all if DS says to do something, you listen and you listen the first time they tell you X)

Tidgxor, my notes did say 1.4v, but DS did raise it .01v to 1.41v, I am assuming because this allowed them to click it over to 4.7 rather than 4.6

Once you get your system, I'd keep an eye on your vcore when the CPU is under load, make sure its not kicking up much higher than 1.41v.

Congrats again! AwesomeBig%20Smile

The machine got here ANNNND it's broken! Of course, with the luck I have had so far this was inevitable :(

A very helpful guy named Carlos and I ran through every problem we could think of and it still turns out I will have to ship it back. Really disappointing considering how long I have been waiting for it, and the rave reviews DS gets, so knowing I am in an unlucky minority...

darn!

That IS the issue! We have no idea what could be wrong, only that it hardcrashes at random, unrelated to load or heat! Very odd.

This is the most disappointing transaction I have ever made *sigh*

After days of getting the return approved, Fedex attempted pickup at the wrong house and so just left it sitting at my door. All because of my faulty 4000 dollar machine, into it's third month of being built.


Please customers, if you read this, stay away from DS, they have a great reputation, but it's not worth the russian roulette.
