Well, I managed to 'fudge' it back in place. This is what happened (irregardless of whether the standoffs were installed or not):
There is a gap between the blade of the square and the motherboard tray at the rightmost standoff (the shadow). Now look at the leftmost standoff and you can see that the shadow isn't as pronounced. I bent the back panel inwards a bit to 'fix' the issue, but I shouldn't have to do this.
Took the 4930K up to 4.4GHz at 1.280V VCORE
with the ram on 1866MHz XMP profile 1. Reduced VCCSA to 1.100V
and enabled PLL overvoltage
. Multiplier is at 44 (all cores synced)
with BCLK at 100MHz
(stock). Didn't change load line, but will probably up it to Medium @ 25% LLC
. Upped Current Capability to 140%
and changed CPU Power Phase Control to Extreme
. Ran Prime95 for a good 17 hours (would fail previously in 1.5 hours at 1.275V VCORE) with no failures and temps touching 80C - the Noctua fans were swapped for a pair of Swiftech Helix 120's off of a H320 (RPMs were at 1000-ish - their rated max), hence the zip ties.
Overall not too bad, isn't a stellar clocker, thought I could get away with 1.25/1.26V but it BSOD'd each time. Would probably need faster fans to go sub 70C - as it stands right now, it is fairly silent at 100% load still, which was what I was aiming for.
More pictures later, when I finally figure out how to get the Quadro and the GeForce to play nicely with each other, my hunch is that I need to hook up an output to each card (one monitor, two inputs) in order for the cards to recognize and activate themselves. Right now, the card which my monitor is attached to is the only one getting utilized (the other is at 0% utilization) - I can replicate this scenario with the Quadro or the GeForce.
