Default Massman burns through LGA-1156 Socket, Anandtech Writes About It

Normally we do not worry too much about mishaps during extreme overclocking testing as they are typically caused by factors outside of the supplier’s control. The overriding concern is that we have damaged every motherboard in our possession for the overclocking P55 shootout as well as two very expensive i7/870 processors. These problems are the cause of a single component and are repeatable. As such, we thought we would provide details on current problems and will provide an update once all of the motherboard manufacturers affected have had a chance to properly respond.


When Intel publishes socket specifications and design tolerances, it's up to component manufacturers to strictly adhere to them when designing, manufacturing, testing and ultimately selling their "compliant" components. Of course, that's not to say Intel could not have goofed when releasing their specification, leaving out a crucial tolerance or such. It could happen, but not likely. For the time being, let's assume that's not the case; seeing as how processors installed in sockets built by other companies have exhibited no such issue in testing to date.

This more than anything makes me glad I did not wait for Lynnfield... cripes.

For 24/7 Loads I'm using LLC 1.40v @ 4.2GHz with water and the GPU in the same loop! I've also OC'd up to 4.5GHz with +1.45v... suspect I would have cooked a P55 board by now for sure.

if you have a P55 with LOTES socket no such issues; EVGA P55 uses it amongst others
and since this article there has been a revision of the Foxconn socket too

Tweakers posts a link to your article http://tweakers.net/nieuws/63121/soc...-overklok.html stating that they first experienced this before you posted the thread at XS...

That's how it works in the overclocking community: never share anything, because you're guaranteed to get screwed over by people who use the info you gave as if they found it themselves.
