Is it stable?
Yep it is stable wouldn't of posted had it not been. Lap the heatsinks and put some AS5 on em. The stuff they use is a harder compound and comes off pretty easy.
I think I may off figured out something.
For those of you trying to reach 10k have you noticed a bottleneck from 9920 - 10k where no matter how much you increase the core or memory it doesn't help?
Me too so I started trying to isolate the problem.
I started with the ram because I have 2 gigs of Transend JM488Q643A-6. My XPS came with some Hynix chips. Once I put the transend in my scores stopped bottlenecking.
Same everything except ram:
Hynix = 9989, 9962, and 9987
Transend = 10010, 10055, and 10023
Can anyone else verify this? My testing is pretty conclusive the Hynix ram is bottlenecking scores under 10k.
