I just can't do it.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I don't know what it is but I can't even overclock my Intel Core i7 860 2.80 GHz CPU with EVGA P55 FTW motherboard past stock speeds, whatever I do, whatever voltages I set it to it just doesn't boot.

If I go too high I get a d0 error code, if it isn't that it's some f6 error, if it isn't that then it's windows starting the splash screen and simply sitting there.

I've come to terms with the fact that I might not be able to get a 4.0 GHz overclock and I'm perfectly content with that but I just can't believe I can't even get a 3.0 GHz overclock. Is this even possible? Could my CPU be THAT bad?

I don't know if anyone can help me or not but I've looked at numerous guides and followed them all with no luck.

This is a random set of values I tried for the hell of it;

Hopefully this may help diagnose the problem?

Anyway my PC specs are as follows;

Motherboard: EVGA P55 FTW
CPU: Intel i7 860 2.80 GHz
GPU: EVGA GTX 260
RAM: Corsair 4GB DDR3 XMS 1600 MHz 9-9-9-24, 1.65V
Powersupply: Corsair 750W

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

EDIT: Pictures are a little blurry, CPU VCORE was 1.375 somewhere around that area. VTT was 1.2, if you guys need anything else lemme' know!

Well what settings are you using?

Voltages?

I've tried so many I can't even tell you off the top of my head, I tried these guides with no luck;

It won't budge with any of these methods, maybe I just need to find my own custom set of values that will go with it? But I can't keep trying all these different combinations, possibilities are endless. :/

yeah, i feel you.. i'm having similar problems. I can OC my DDR3 RAM from 1333 to 1500+ stable, i cant get my cpu stable past 2.7GHz with RAM at those speeds.. and if I bring the RAM speed down even to like 800 i still can't boot with cpu past 2.8GHz D: maybe we are doing the same thing wrong lol

mines x58 though

This is so frustrating, what the hell is 6F!

I'm sure we are doing something similar wrong ambientblue, just what! Haha.

I set it all as such, RAM voltage was set to 1.65. Timings were set to 9-9-9-24

CPU core 3.25 (something like that lol)
VTT: 1.4 (I also tried 1.2)
BCLK was 21 x 200

I tried the RAM at 1600 MHz and a lower speed and the end result has been the same!

6F!!! Overclocking gurus please assist, the overclocking god simply doesn't appreciate my effort. :/
