    Default Foxconn Black Ops Question

    I'm looking to try and pull a little more out of my E8500, C0, at present with a Asus P5E (BIOS RF0410), I've been using 4.5-4.7 core speed and a FSB max around 522 for benching, which isn't too bad, but have been looking for a new setup and found this over at Newegg.

    Newegg.com - Foxconn BlackOps X48 LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

    Newegg.com - OCZ Flex II 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

    The reviews of the Foxconn are mixed, so is a FSB of 550+ and core speeds over 4800+ possible with Air/Water. For $310 US after rebates makes it a reasonable alternative to a CPU/MB/RAM replacement the I7 platform needs. So any opinions would greatly be appreciated.

    500MHz is entirely achievable, I'm running 500*8 for my 4.0GHz

    I have run 500*9 for 4.5GHz but it is too warm here at present to run at that 24/7 with air cooling, also the top limit for the overclock will depend a lot on the chip.

    I'm really quite happy with my Black Ops (I came to it from a P5E3)

    If (and it is a big if) Intel release the E8700 (3.5GHz) or the E9000 (4.0GHz) that have been speculated on then in tandem with this board they would be a viable alternative to the i7 range.

    If you do get the board try the P05 bios or the G30 & G32 (don't use the G32 if you run RAID)

    Join up to Xtreme Systems Forum as there is a wealth of info and a Foxconn Tech Support guy (saaya) who posts in the forums there.

    Cheers.

    Just picked up a new one from the egg for $140 shipped. Hopefully the Xtreme Systems forum will come back with all of the technical info on the board. Also it looks like Foxconn released the P06 bios for it.

    Any 1 have a recommended DDR3 1800/2000 RAM kit for it? Preferably first hand experience. Looking to run a E8600 with active cooling and a water loop for the NB.

    P06 at last? (I'm the thread starter at XS "Will there ever be a P06 bios")

    I must check the Foxconn site, I'm currently running G32 with my E8600 (VID 1.225) at 4.0GHz 1.25V vcore, it will do 4.25GHz at 1.325V vcore as well.

    If you have any questions post them up and I'll answer them if I can.



    EDIT: Do you have a link to the P06? It isn't on the Foxconn channel website that I can see, the only new release appears to be the G33

    Here you go:

    Foxconn - Support - Downloads

    It appears to have come out on 3/31.

    With Xtremesystems down, I can't get any good info on what memory to run. I am looking to run at 4.5~4.8 24/7 with at least 4GB RAM (Currently doing 4.275 w/ 8Gb RAM on a 750iFTW 24/7). Any suggestions?

    Thanks for that, the beer was blurring my vision :D

    Off hand I'd suggest i4memory forums DDR3 Ram List and look for some Micron chip based modules, maybe even post a question in the forum, eva2000 is a bit of a memory guru who may be able to steer you in the right direction. I notice a lot of XS forum posters are showing up over there too while XS is down so they may be able to give you some advice.

    What FSB are you running?

    What speed memory are you considering 1600, 1800, 2000MHz?

    I picked up a set of these:

    Kingston HyperX KHX16000D3ULT1K3/6GX

    while I am trying to find a set using the new Elpida 2K chips or the Samsing HCF0 clocked @ PC3-2000. We'll see how they do on the Blackops.

    nice, 500MHz FSB should be a good playground for you.

    I'm a little disappointed that the 1:3.2 divider appears to be broken, I can boot and be stable on lower dividers (ram @ 1333MHz/ divider 1:2.665) with 500MHz FSB but the 1:3.2 wont boot with the memory at 1600MHz no matter what the timings/VTT voltage/NB voltage are. :(

    I've tried G30/32/33 and P05/06 without success, maybe I should grab those 2000MHz modules too, I'll have to check the bank balance ;)

    You might have already tried this, with my P5E depending on BIOS, certain dividers would not work. I found if I set the PL/tRd maually to 10/11 I could get that divider to post.
