    Can you comment about your gaming experience? How is the 25ms response time?

    Guys I'm back with some good news.
    @b.kolev after installing Gelid Pad, I've delidded my cpu (I used a RockitCool kit) and reinstalled the heatsink with Phobya nanogrease.
    Now my pc is "decent" and temp are good during gaming sessions.
    Here you can find a screenshot with temp and voltages after a Realbench run (ambient temp 22.5 Celsius) using AWCC moderate fan profile (performance fan profile is unacceptable for my ears). [​IMG]

    Umm, I just watch movie, playing Civilization, there are no problem without Tobi eye tracking issues ( it fixed to turn off the Tobi ).
    but if you play over 60fps ( 1000ms / 60frame = 16ms on each frame ) game, you may feel the latency.

    Wow! Very good results! Can you show a sceenshot with Core 0-7 VID and also what clock did you achieve with that temperatures - 5.0 Ghz?
    What did you do with the thermal pads?

    @b. kolev here a complete screenshot.
    During overclocking tests I tested only up to 4.9 ghz, I can try 5.0ghz and post results [​IMG]

    That's ridiculous latency. Clearly this is not a gaming display at all. The 25ms is already inadequate for 60 Hz in terms of GtG whereas some transitions can take much longer. Hopefully the display has some other strong points, such as colour accuracy.

    Yes, I agreed UHD is completely not a gaming display, we have to connect external monitor for rich gaming experience, but I still need 4K because of the resolution ( 100% scaling in 17 inch size ). I have to use this super rig for work...

    Hello,
    Sorry but from what i see i would say that those are not good results for Delided CPU (in my opinion),
    Your clock speed (average is around 45X) you are not at 49X constant.

    I understand you are not using performance or full speed fan. You should when testing, just to compare. Now your CPU is not running it's full speed. It's like modyfying your car for quarter miles and going half way on the gas pedal.
    Re run the test with max performance, max fan speed at 47x or 48x. (see if it can hold that speed). Make sure you undervolt the CPU (makes a big difference).
    Run cinebench R15 or R20 (better for testing max temps).

    Good luck

    Hello @Normimb here some screenshots at stock clock, 4800 and 4900mhz.
    Every test with cpu undervolt and fan at full speed. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    are you sure 10 C drop is the result of deliding ? I believe most of the effect comes from the use of nano grease as it much better paste than the stock's.

    Most results show deliding improved temp by 3C at max (of course when using the same thermal paste)
