Help please from people with GIGABYTE "FXA,XTA,FXTA" model boards [Solved]

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have been tinkering around with my overclock, as people know the 1055T has a locked multi of 14x so I have to use the CPU Clock/FSB to OC.

This is where it gets interesting:

OK I have ok to 3.5 GHz using 1.2250v on the cpu and a FSB of 250 MHz and the NB voltage of 1.180-1.38v.

with the ram divider of 6.66x with the result of 1665 MHz on the ram and that was fine.

But now that I am looking to up the CPU Clock/fsb more I have to lower the Ram divider to compensate.

So I have:

CPU Clock: 260MHz
NBv:1.38v

cpu: 2860 MHz
cpu multi:11x (for stability)
cpu v: 1.2500v

ram: 1040 MHz
divider: 4x
ramv:1.65v(stock)
timming: 8-8-8-24-34 (stock)

now every time I boot I get a message along these lines:



Now how do I get about this, I know it has to do with ram and timmings. But what would be the best way?

I have had a thought that it may just be the speed of the ram, so would I be right in thinking that I go to the next highest CPU Clock that allows me near 1600 MHz speed but on the 4x divider.

Or are the speeds associated with ram built in speeds eg: 800,1066,1333,1600 and if it doesn't match it will allways give me this message?

The reason I find this odd is that it was happy at

1665 MHz on 6.66x with the CPU Clock at 250MHz
1599 MHz on 6.66x with the CPU Clock at 240MHz

also it was fine at stock:

1600 Mhz on 8x with the CPU Clock at 200MHz

But as soon as I drop lower than 6.66x it chucks a fit any which way, even with everything else set as close to stock bar the CPU Clock as humanly possable.

Any idea's guys ?


Thanks in advance

The multiplier can be different always that you keep the RAM settings and voltage to the manufacturer specs. Keep in mind the HT and NB too, we also know that those two change with the FSB.

Yeah I did that, I kept the ram a full manufacturers spec, also the HT and the CPU NB @ under 2000 MHz.

Change CPU voltage, CPU NB VID and NB voltage from Auto to an specific value.

That I had also done.

The CPU was @ 1.2500v for 2800 MHz
the Cpu/Nb was @ normal ( didn't think that I needed to change this, but second guessing now)

The NB went from 1.1v all the way to 1.38v and still the same result, but year it's the RAM for some reason. That's really all I can put my finger on.

Update to the latest BIOS

Certain multipliers on NB or RAM or whatever may have issues on the latest BIOS. On my board (a direct cousin of yours) until I got to Bios F8F, I was having serious issues on Northbridge multiplier x7 and x8. Your mobo may have the same issue but on the x5.33 RAM multi, on this BIOS.

I had also thought this also .

I had keyed in settings that I know are solid "from previous experiences" and it flops me.

But I will give that a go. The BIOS update

F4A
Beta BIOS
Update CPU AGESA code

Quote:
AMD Generic Encapsulated Software Architecture (AGESA), is a bootstrap protocol by which system devices on AMD64-architecture mainboards are initialized. The AGESA software in the BIOS of such mainboards is responsible for the initialization of the processor cores, memory, and the HyperTransport controller.

I have tried 5.33 and 4.0 and it just fails real bad.

Cheers for this, it was just the ticket.

Minus a few hair raisers, for one of the other BIOS updates I tried stopped working as soon as I booted. I then had to pull the battery a couple of times and reset the CMOS, but as soon as I loaded up the 4a BIOS ye olde girl went like a champ.....+1.
