Tonight’s session was all about the new competition from MSI (which I talked a little bit about earlier already), the MSI Godlike OC Season 2 Extreme 2D. The focus for this session was on the SuperPi 32M stage.
The hardware I used:
- CPU: Intel Core i7 6700k
- Memory: G.Skill TridentZ 3600C16
- Storage: Intel 40G SSD
- Motherboard: MSI Z170A XPOWER Gaming Titanium
- Fans: Cooler Master jetFlo 120
- Power Supply: Corsair ELITE AX1500i
- TIM: Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut
The limitations are that you have to use MSI motherboard, you have to run your CPU at 5G and you have to be in the top 3 leagues at HWBOT to be able to take part. (Elite, Extreme or Apprentice).
How the session went
All in all, I think that to be honest, I struggled a little bit at trying to get my memory timings as high and as tight as I wanted them to be. I need to just bear in mind that this is the big board (the X99 board) and that it just can’t be compared to the likes of a Mini-ITX board for example like the Impact.
So if I take that into consideration, I’m overall quite happy with what I managed to do tonight. I did manage to break the 6min barrier, but I’m still 6 seconds away from the current best score posted and 6 seconds …. it’s going to be tough.
What I think I might have to do is to be getting a little board to have any hopes of being competitive in this competition.
