    I think the temps on my CPU are limiting me right now. As soon as they hit over 85c the turbo steps down. I'm pretty sure I can get better scores, but I don't have the time right now



    I did notice that lowering the voltage does indeed help. My guess is that this is temp related. the lower voltage probably heats the cores up less.

    Adding voltage will dramatically increase hear so yea that would be the obstacle. I may need to hook up an external monitor, and keyboard, turn the system upside down, and throw my dice pot on the cpu That is if I actually ended up getting the R4 if dell hasn't canceled my order yet.

    I think you'd get awesome results!

    Also I noticed that even tough you can override the pwoer limits in the BIOS, these changed don't seem to work. So that might also be an issue. On the XM these probably do work...

    HAHA!!

    Thanks man! I felt a little bored waiting for the 7970Ms so I thought lets run a few quick benches while we wait. lol!
    I sure do hope Eurocom can come through for you guys real soon!
    Reading Dan's update about the M18xR1 requiring manual fan control was a real let down for me.
    It looks like I'll need to get Dell GPUs if I want to upgrade my M18x.

    The Level 3 preset has x43, x41, x39, and x37. But changing them manually, the max I can get is x40, x39, x38, x38. This is more inline with what I saw previously (only seeing x40 in CPUz while testing one thread).



    Okay, here are my best results for wPrime 1.55 8 threaded runs at stock and at 38,38,39,40:






    4.0Ghz on single thread:



    Is wPrime 1.55 supposed to be that much faster than 2.09? o_O

    I'm getting up to 90C on CoreTemp
    Haven't repasted yet though. That might help.
    did you have to touch the flex vid to get x40, x39, x38, x38 or you set it to 0?

    No. Changing it doesn't seem to have any effect for me. My voltage stayed the same in CPUZ and OCCT. I have it on 0 right now.
