Some people in forum says, you should disable whole cpu power saving options some says, you do not need to. Is there someone who can explane this to me? Thank you in advance

1 you need to raise dram volts tom compensate for vdroop generally 1.67 is enough for it but you may need as much as 1.7- side note in your screen shots ( 1st one ) it looks like you set up ram volts as 1.65- however in your screenshot it shows 1.5 ? - what is the rated voltage for your ram ?
2 cpu/nb ( NB core ) needs to be increased by around 0.1v ( for ~1.2-1.3v)
3 nb voltage also need to be increased by ~ 0.1v ( again 1.2 ish )
4 on all other gigabyte boards i have seen it is recommended you raise cpu pll to 2.695v- please note that board is relatively new, although it may help very little experience with that board in these forums ! you will probably have to test this for your self

different strokes / different folks - also most guides were written early in fxs lifespan, we now know far more.

generally it is easier to oc with all power saving off

Mega Man so you think the CnQ problem i have is caused by the voltages? I dont have any stability issues so far (occt stable for 2 hours). Also im using xmp profile for my Gskill set so it sets automatically the voltage and as you can see in the first pic its at 1.632. Its really weird that i have to enable a power saving feature so i can get the desired clocks. Maybe its a bug?
post #11924 of 12377
According to you (the way I understood it ) your cpu is stuck at low freq.


Ie your not stable as you never Reach the desired freq.

You also stated above a 20x cpu multi your pc won't boot.

The above settings I stated should help with that

Correct me if I am wrong?

If you disable cnq your cpu should be at max freq all the time.


Also
1 certain programs like amd over drive will Ebanks things like a pm. Do you have any installed?

2 i always recommend using offset either once you learn the specified vcore needed or from the beginning IF you want to use cnq.

I dont have stability issues with my current settings. The only weird thing is that CnQ needs to be ENABLED so i can have the same freq on all cores. If i disable it, six of the cores stay at 1.4. Also how do i use offset, if for example i need 1.38 voltage?

Reset your BIOS and set the overclock again, i have the same board and sometimes the BIOS has a mind of its own it seems.. a BIOS reset mostly solves some problems.

When you dial in a new OC, leave all voltages at stock but disable all power saving features and look whats happening. If it works try to set all voltages little higher like: NB/PCIe/PLL voltage to 1.895, CPU PLL voltage to 2.695, NB voltage to 1.200 and set your RAM at correct voltage manually.

Here are my BIOS screenshots:

Ok hurricane28, i'll do a clear cmos and try again. It sucks that a great board like this suffers from buggy firmware...They really need to update their bios.

Yep, good idea.

I think Megaman had some good suggestions about voltages you might want to try. I think I might try some of those myself sometime.

I don't have any trouble with my OC on C&Q. I overclocked and found stability with all energy saving settings disabled. Then I enabled some energy saving features and it became unstable. Then I increased my vcore one or two notches and stability testing showed it to be stable.
