Will I be able to get more performance from this setup?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all, as the header suggests, I am wondering if I am getting the best performance from my current rig and it's setup/overclock.

I have been tweaking and fiddling for a few weeks now, and no matter what I try the performance seems to have maxed out. The reason I ask is because it doesn't seem like a huge increase over my previous rig, and considering I now have 990X and new Mobo I would have though a higher score is achievable?

Below are my BIOS settings, sorry for the long-winded mail, but any suggestions are very welcome.. If i'm honest I don't know what all of the things in the BIOS mean. Someone may read these settings and lol, if you can see anything in these settings which sticks out as a FAIL or may bottle neck performance pls let me know.

Many thanks up front for any help / suggestions. If you require more info, just let me know and I will get it.

See signature for complete hardware specs.

BIOS: -

CPU clock ratio - x23
BCLK - x196
Clock speed - 4,500MHz
QPI clock ratio - x36
Uncore clock ratio - x18
Uncore Clock Frequency - 3528MHz
X.M.P. - disabled
System memory multiplier - x10
Memory Speed - 1960MHz
Memory timing - 9-9-9-24-74
PCI-E frequency - 101MHz
CPU clock drive - 700mV
PCI-E clock drive - 700mV
CPU clock skew - 0ps
IOH clock skew - 0ps
Intel turbo boost - disabled
CPU cores - enable ALL
CPU Multithreading - enabled
CPU enhanced halt - disabled
c3/c6/c7 state support - disabled
CPU thermal monitor - disabled
CPU EIST - disabled
Bi-directional PROCHOT - auto

Load-line calibration - Level 2
Vcore - 1.375v
QPI/VTT - 1.295v
CPU PLL - 1.88v
PCI-E - 1.5v
QPI PLL - 1.28v
IOH Core - 1.22v
ICH I/O - 1.5v
ICH Core - 1.14v
DRAM - 1.62v

With these settings, idle temp is around 30c and loaded is around 61c.

(My previous rig was the same as this one, except it had a Giga-Byte X58A-UD3R motherboard and an i7 930).

Tbh the only weak link i see in this rig is your gtx 480. Even though a 480 is still upto the task of almost any game it is all i can see that would/could hold you back. Or perhaps an ssd

yeah, new graphics card is next!... or 2

So does the OC looks sound in terms of performance? It's stable and I'm happy with the temps, I just want to make sure I am really getting this most out of it in terms of performance.

As for the performance, I get 29,500 in 3D Mark 06 and around 5,800 in 3D Mark 11. Does this sound right, considering my 4.5GHz overclock?

sounds to me like you have awsome performance and i cant fault your overclock but perhaps a 990x guru will be able to look upon your settings with a more experienced eye that's a killer rig in my eyes
