Smile First i7 920 D0 Step = mixed bag of results

System:
  • i7 920 3851A368
  • EK Supreme LT 1366 / FESER 480 / MCP655
  • DFI UT X58-T3EH8 04/28 beta
  • 2x HD4870x2 Crossfire (Powercolor + Gigabyte flashed to Asus Top bios) with ATI Win7 9.4 (8.612 WHQL)
  • 6GB Corsair Dominator GT DDR3-2000Mhz 7-8-7-20
  • 750GB Samsung SATAII
  • Silverstone OP1200 PSU
  • Triple boot - WinXP Pro SP3 / Vista Ultimate 64Bit SP2 / Win7 Ultimate 64bit RC

Got my first D0 stepping Core i7 920 cpu hoping it will be better than my gem of a C0 step i7 920 3836A756 which managed 4769Mhz on TRUE120 AIR.

Stock idle and load temps look pretty normal to me with 28-30C room ambients. The VCORE = AUTO resulting within windows default vcore voltage is slightly higher on this D0 at 1.200v idle / 1.184v load compared to both my i7 920 3836A756 C0 cpus which both have vcore AUTO at 1.168v idle / 1.152v load.
