Talking Holy Moly GIGABYTE miniITX H55N-USB3 rocking d i5 655K@4.9GHz 3DMARK06 on air cooling

When news first surfaced of this board i thought...hmmm something i need for the multimedia machine.....i better give it a crack. Next thing you know guys are saying i should overclock it etc so why not

I sat down putting it all together and MSN lights up with youngpro going bananas over the board......i'll let him show off the clocking he did with his Core i7 860 later

Suffice to say this little pocket rocket is exactly that. It's dead easy to OC and pushes the new Core i5 655K chip hard. I thought i would crank the voltage and do some 3DMARK06 CPU test runs for a laugh. I started off at 4.2/4.4/4.5/4.6....im thinking wtf this is nuts.......4.7/4.8/4.9 faints. I left it to finish a 32M Superpi as well...didnt tweak obviously as it was single channel on w7, just wanted to see if its stable with pi too

Hardware setup:
  • Gigabyte H55N-USB3 mini-ITX (F2 shipping bios)
  • Intel Core i5 655K Unlocked CPU
  • CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus CPU Air Cooler
  • Corsair GTX2 Dominator (had clearance issues so just used one stick)
  • WD 600GB SATA3 VelociRaptor
  • MSI HAWK 5770 PCIe Graphics Card
  • Corsair HX620 PSU
  • Windows 7 32bit

5247MHz validation on air EEEEEK

4.9GHz 3DMARK06



4.6GHz prime for a couple of hours eek




Core i7 875K Unlocked CPU results

PRIME at 3 hour mark




3DMARK06 at 4.1GHz



32M SuperPi at 4.4Ghz

what were mosfet temps like?
i had the zotac H55-ITX Wifi with my i7 860 and well - any form of load on the cpu even at stock made the mosfets shoot to a tempreture well able to burn my finger.
nice speed too - and on air !

its been over 40 minutes 4.4Ghz 1.41v

i might have a bad mount as one core is reporting 69C and other 77C

cant stick my finger in there though too narrow
they are exposed...no heatsink on them

i could well feel the heat coming off mine though also - and touching them = burnt.
infact - due to me (and i assume others nad their testing) zotac discontinued support for the i7 chips in their board......

you should be able to touch the one nearest to the audio FP connector
