But if you set overclock on 4.2 with x.m.p you need to adjust the vcore a bit or in prime your threads fails

which method did you use to adj vcore? just bump with manual... or offset mode.. or?

still havent had the time to oc mine..but tonight I should...was thinking about the offset method... after first just using rialto's simple 2 step method biggrin.gif

Could be cooler.....but that's always gonna be the case. Those kinda temps are certainly acceptable and fall within a safe 24/7 threashold

Considering the equipment you have, I'd say you can easily drop those temps some.
With moderate ambiant indoor temps..... I'd think idle temps should be closer to 30-35C
Of course....your CPU V's come into play also. You're at what ?


In the meantime , you certainly arn't killin' nothing and should be enjoying your kit.
When you got the time to tweak.....I'd re-TIM and check/double check fans are
positioned in a proper in / out flow.


To be honest I've never messed with vrm heat sinks or there TIM. Ran prime95 last night for 5+ hours, when I checked again the vrm were at 44c in the hottest area it's clocked at 4.6ghz with a 1.36 vcore

Hey guys, I need some help with my Gene-Z.

I'm not new to overclocking/tweaking, but I'm new to SB having skipped Nehalem and Lynnfield. Anyway, I've noticed that SpeedStep is not working on my setup. Here's the details:

SpeedStep works if, and only if, the BIOS is completely set to defaults.... "Auto" for most settings.

If I change a setting, such as memory speed, it doesn't work anymore.

For example: In a CMOS-cleared fresh BIOS, if I manually set my RAM to run at 1600 instead of "Auto", CPU-Z shows my CPU running at full Turbo speed (3900MHz) even though I'm idling near 0% usage. It never clocks down, not even to stock clock (3500MHz). In contrast, if I leave the memory setting on "Auto" it properly clocks the CPU down to 1600MHz and turbo's up to full speed on load (but my RAM will run at 1333). I'm not using XMP, just manually setting the memory divider. And yes, EIST is enabled in the BIOS.

Coming from Yorkfield I'm new to the whole turbo thing, but I was under the assumption that SpeedStep should clock down to 1600MHz at idle, run at 3500MHz with normal loads, and turbo up to 3900MHz dynamically when needed. It shouldn't idle at "Turbo" speed, correct? My Yorkfield was fine with SpeedStep enabled even when overclocked.

I'm running BIOS 0902 with an i7-2700K running at stock clocks. Is this normal behavior or is this BIOS known to have this issue? Anyone else running 0902 seeing this?

change the C1E bios setting from auto to enabled and EIST should start working, that was my problem anyway!

Frankly ... TWO of the strong reasons I bought this board initially also were the SSD Cache ISRT/RST technology and the Lucid Virtu technology ... SIX Months later, and I don't use EITHER ! doh.gif  they both don't really live up to what I thought I'd gain from them ... or maybe I'm just doing it wrong I dunno, still kind of a noob with computer builds blushsmiley.gif ,

but IMO ... and this was advice given to me early on as well btw winksmiley02.gif  ... FORGET the ISRT/RST and the SSD Cache option for now ... your 90 GB SSD drive would be just big enough for an OS/BOOT C:/ Drive and use your HDD as your storage/file/backup drive ... this will end up giving you better performance using it in this way than the SSD Cache feature as well.

Read about I think it's like at 60 90 pages into the thread or so and beyond ? somewhere in there we discuss this ... and the concencus seemed to be that both the SSD Cache ISRT/RST technology and the Lucid Virtu technology were not yet fully realized features worth taking too much time to get working because neither lived up to expectations as of yet at least, maybe down the road they'll improve them ?

Anyways IF you decide you STILL want to use it despite my advice, then most likely I think it's a setting in the BIOS you have to configure, maybe a combonation of them ... did you set SATA Mode to RAID ? Also your drive can't be plugged into the RED SATA 6.0GB/s ... you have to use the GRAY SATA 3.0GB/s for ISRT/RST to function. Also did you DISABLE Acceleration and switch to ENHANCED ? or did you even GET that far ... I could never get it working enough to get that far either, and just gave up and did the above thumb.gif  but Good Luck.
PS - IF you haven't you should really check out and read through - http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/seans-windows-7-install-guide-optimization-for-ssds-hdds

@LA-King Thanks so much man! Off of what you said I already found several issues that were driving me crazy. I had my ssd connected to the red sata for speed, but didn't realize it wouldn't be compatible with RST. I'm also not sure about the rest of the settings for my sata connection, so it could all be wrong lol. Anyways I'm going to try to make this RST run stable bc I'm hard headed and determined. Thanks for suggesting which pages to read, bc I probably only read the last 20 pages with everyone saying how great and perfect their board is (I was thinking I must have the worst luck in the world to have the one board that crashes 24/7).

@rwpritchett, Don't forget to set your power options to "BALANCED" not performance or you won't throttle down......... !
