http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/663563/LinX/LinX-setup.exe
try this one. this is an installation file, i had the same problem as you with a simpel .exe file.

and be sure to run linx as administrator
and be sure to run your memory on all, linx will first load your memory and when it has reached it's maximum, than it will give your cpu 100% load.
use taskmanager wink.gif

This is where I am at currently:
Found my OC to keep.
4Ghz @ 1.488 vid (after vdroop)
NB @ 3Ghz
HT @ 2Ghz
1600Mhz @ 9-9-9-24t 1.5v
Stable, plus with C1E and Kool n Quiet enabled for no load down clocking.
I can reach 4.2Ghz++ However, I have to boot with way to much Vcore voltage to compensate for vdroop I dont feel comfortable.
I can get my ram timings down to 8-9-8-24t 1t @1.5v. But would like to keep low timings and would love to get them to a higher freq. I know on this board, Sin088 was able to get a set of G.Skill ram sticks. similar to mine above 1800Mhz and a 4.5Ghz clock on a 1100t. I know I may be limited more on my 1090t. But would love to go higher.
Do note, the Vdroop I do have. 1.488 on load 1.575 set in bios I believe. If not 1.575 then its 1.550. I do know from testing the droop difference is consistent across voltages.

that's some serious Vdroop! What is your overall goal with the overclock? Like is this a gaming machine, or do you do media encoding? I have always attempted to maximize the OC for what the PC is going to be used for rather than push everything to the absolute maximum, unless your trying to get maximum benchmark score's. Dose your revision of the UD7 have LLC or not? and what temps do you run with that voltage and settings? also is 1600Mhz @ 9-9-9-24t stock RAM settings or is that an overclock? Lastly how many DIMM's of RAM are you using? I might be able to assist in some minor refinements but you seem to have a pretty darn good start from the looks of it. For the most part once you hit 4.0 with a phenom II (4 or 6 core) you've pretty much hit the top for aircooling/Closed loop system's. More extreme cooling solutions are needed in most case's to break past that range.

Example: I use a Silver Arrow with 2x San Ace 1011's and its hard for me to keep temps in check when going past 4.2 range. So much so that its unstable. The sad part is that my S/A and 1011's is not a joke when it comes to cooling. Its just not strong enough for a more extreme OC. I need a full water loop lol.

  • Goal: Mostly gaming machine. I do try to run my VM's on it. But my laptop seems to run circles around this desktop when running them. (i7-920m 4c/4t 8G ram)
  • My UD7 does not have LLC, my UD7 is a early UD7 from Gigabyte. It was the one that Sin088 used to do his REVIEW of it. Plus then used for his BD OC'ing GUIDE. (He used a non public Bios in that)
  • Temps: Idle is near ambient: 24/25*c. Load: 50*c is the max it has gotten to.
  • The memory; 1600Mhz 9-9-9-24t is stock settings. I am running 2 Dimms. Slots 1&2.
  • I am running 2 Yate loon high speeds in pull on my H100. Not connected to the H100 controller, connected straight to a molex power for full RPM's. Pretty much same amount of noise from them. Which are now squeaking. Need to oil them
If anything, I am fine with 4Ghz. but would love to get a full 1Ghz overclock to at least 4.2Ghz. smile.gif Plus would really like to get my ram running faster, and if possible faster timings.

Edit: So, I tried your method of stress testing. Loaded up Kombuster from MSI for full GPU load. Then started Linx for CPU/Memory stress. biggrin.gif
OMG, so apparently there are about 4 other outlets on the same circuit as the one my computer is using. Lamps starting flickering, clock just stopped. I let it run for a few minutes then stopped. Didnt want the house to catch on fire. Heh

For overclocking, if your motherboard exceeds a set tdp, the cpu will throttle down. (APM master mode). you can disable this with F6, not with F5.

Great, Few more questions. What is your CPU-NB Voltage at? Have you messed with HT link speeds at all? Ever mess with HT link? some people have claimed slight raises in stability. Lastly what RAM timing and freq's have you toyed with? In my experience overclocking RAM on a Phenom II can be a brutal task. Thuban's do better than denab's with RAM OC's but its still hit and miss. I would also like to add that in gaming, your not going to notice much of a difference in RAM timings and speed over what you have. However you want to fine tune your RAM performance you should drop your Freq and raise your timings(I would also bump the voltage up a notch or two) as AMD's tend to favor tight and low timings over freq, In a perfect world you net a 1-3 FPS gain at max from playing with RAM settings but you might be able to lower the amount of stress on the IMC allowing you to gain your extra 200Mhz.

I will also say that from a gaming prospective you'er not going to get much more "real world" performance from refining your OC further, but it will be fun to play with biggrin.gif I cannot notice any difference between 3.6Ghz and 2400 CPU-NB and 4.0 and 2800 CPU-NB on my quad and your CPU has a bit more gusto than mine from the start. Also when refining an OC you might also be able to get a higher clock stable but performance will actually go down some. To check up on this, Pick a benchmark and run it at stock, note the results and then slowly work your CPU back to you highest known OC. If your score's start dropping then you've hit that proverbial "wall of performance gains".

1090T doesnt have this so F5 is best for 1090T.
