What Revision is that?

3rd pic: Enable HPC

4th pic:
VCore to 1.4
NB Core to 1.25
DRAM Voltage to 1.675
NB/PCIe/.. PLL to 1.85
CPU PLL to 2.7
NB Voltage to 1.25
LLC is the tricky part. Set it to Normal for now.

Set your CPU Multiplier to 22 for a 4.4GHz Core Clock.
Set your RAM to Default Clock and Timings - aka DOCP Profile 1.
Run HWInfo64 and double click the VCore Voltage to open a Graph (we'd like to see how LLC affects the VCore level at load)
Run IBT AVX and observe the VCore graph as well as the Temps.

Post your results here.

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

Quick question, folks:

I saw somewhere (don't remember where of course) that someone found you could screw a small fan right into the NB heatsink fins. I've moved from a custom wc loop to air cooling (Thermalright Le Grande Macho RT, fantastic cooler, loving it) and I wanted to try to boost my OC slightly by actively cooling the VRMs. Anyone recall this at all? I might just take a measurement of the space and grab a fan or two that would probably fit and try it out.

IIRC, the individual used a small fan (40mm, 52mm, something like that) and was able to screw two fan screws through the fan and the screws actually threaded between the NB heat sink fins securely. Ring anyone's bell? Thanks! thumb.gif

Is it good for starting? I'll continue... My target is 4800Mhz.
post #11946 of 12377
We need to see the VCore value or swings. Since you have AIDA 64, we can use that as well.

Open the Stability applet without running the test while testing Prime. Look at the Voltages Tab so you can monitor the VCore swings.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the board limit is closely tied to VRM temps. I think once the board starts getting up to the 4800 range, the VRM's get too hot without modifying the stock cooling. I recommend putting two cheap CPU cooling fans on the VRM. I used my 8320e fan and I purchased a second stock CPU fan on Ebay for <$10.

On this board, I have moved my GPU to the lower PCIE slot and it reduced my CPU temps 2-3C without hurting graphics performance.

I used zip ties on a 40mm fan (40mm IIRC). Not the prettiest solution, but it's effective. However, the performance difference is minimal. In fact, my rudimentary testing indicated that actively cooling the NB somehow made it worse than leaving it stock biggrin.gif I'm not sure why and I think it's probably particular to my setup.

I'm sure it's pushing over 140W with 4.8GHz on my FX 6350 @1.43v and VRM is as cool as it can be.

Today the problem i had with CnQ came back... I had it re enabled for testing and now again the clock speeds stay at 1.4 unless CnQ is on. *** is goin on?mad.gif

I upped all the voltages as Mega Man suggested but nothing. Is there a problem with the board ?
