Wait a second....

nb 1.875v? That is too high

Also just to be clear its the cpu-nb voltage you need to mess with, stay under 1.45v but personally i wouldnt like anything over 1.4v, highest i have been is 1.36v

Cpu voltage doesnt seem bad, watch your load voltage, I believe most say 1.55v max for 24/7 use, i am at 1.5v under load.

You might find it usefull to set LLC on cpu to extreme and cpu-nb to high at least but i use extreme

Watch your temps too, i think max temps are 65c but stay under 62c, 55c can start causing stability issues on some chips when your going for over 4.1ghz generally

Well time for me to get some sleep, good luck

lol my bad. i was reading the wrong voltage. i meant to say 1.225v. been running prime on blend for about an hour and so far so good. peak voltage is 1.488v

EDIT: ok i stopped prime to crank it up to 4.2ghz. ill let this run for an hour or so and then jump on some games.

well unfortunately 4.2ghz was just never meant to be. i did everything i could and prime would stop at about 12-40 seconds in. i went up as high as 1.5v and not taking it any further. oh well, at least i got the experience as to what my cpu can do. i ran prime on blend for 2hrs and no stopped workers. now its time to play some games.. here are my final settings:

CPU: 4.0ghz

Multiplier: x20

NB: 2800mhz

CPU/NB Voltage: 1.24v

Try cpu-nb at 1.3-1.35v with your cpu-nb at 2800mhz it will need it that high to pass prime. Mine is at 1.33v for 2800-3055mhz cpu-nb, Up to 1.4v is what some people have said is ok, but I would stick to under 1.38 to be safe. If it fails at that then if you dont want the hastle at least 4.1 is still good. If your really set at 4.2Ghz I would honestly get the fsb at 210-230 and adjust your multipliers

^ I Agree, try messing with your bus speed and adjusting your multiplier 16.5-17.5. I was able to get 4214MHz with BS @ 240 and my multiplier set at 17.5. I don't remember what my core voltage settings, but I do remember at full load it would shoot up to 1.52v or maybe even 1.53v from 1.48v. I'll have to check the BIOS to get my exact settings.

@ theamdman:

no i havent ran ibt. never really had a need to. on my last board, i had everything tweaked the way i wanted it . i then ran prime for a few hours just to make sure it was running ok.. was running perfectly fine until i decided to get this board.



@ 66racer & mironccr345:

i would rather not mess with the fsb until i get my other set of ram. i will be fine at 4ghz, for now at least. as for the nb voltage, ill try that and see what happens. thanks

Can someone point me in the correct direction in regards to what settings I still need to tinker with in order to boost my CPU to a nice 4.2GHz? Below are my system specs and my current BIOS information as listed. I have a feeling that my issue(s) are related to the NB VCC and/or some of the power phase settings.


SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS

Mobo: Asus 990FX Sabertooth
BIOS: 0813
CPU: Phenom II X6 1100T O/C Stable @ 4.01GHz
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3-1600 @ 1300MHz
GPU: nVidia 580 GTX 2GB Reference Board
CPU Cooling: Corsair H90 Liquid Cooler


CURRENT SETTINGS @ 4.01GHz


CPU: 4.01GHz
CPU Temp: 33c (BIOS)
MB Temp: 28c

CPU BUS: 200
CPU Mult: x20
HT Link Speed: Auto (2000)
CPU-NB Freq: Auto (2000)

NB VCC: Auto @ 1.10
CPU-NB Vcc: Auto @ 1.125
NB-HT VCC: Auto @ 1.20

Mem Freq: Auto (1333)
CPU & PCIE SS: Auto
DRAM Timing: Auto (1T)
DRAM VCC: Auto @ 1.506

CPU Vcc: Manually Set to 1.400 @1.392
CPU Load Line: High
CPU-NB Load Line: High
CPU Current: Auto
CPU-NB Current: Auto
CPU Power Phase: Extreme
VPU VDDA: Auto


I am rock solid at 4.01GHz via the above settings, however, whenever I attempt to increase the CPU Multiplier to 21 (4.2GHz), I get the dreaded BSOD with an IRQ_NOT_LESS_THEN error.

Should I attempt to slowly increase the CPU-NB current and/or the NB current? All I am looking to do is achieve a stable 4.2GHz. In actuality, there isn't a need to even O/C at all, however, that would be no fun.


Tnx

Tim

no i havent ran ibt. never really had a need to. on my last board, i had everything tweaked the way i wanted it . i then ran prime for a few hours just to make sure it was running ok.. was running perfectly fine until i decided to get this board.
@ 66racer & mironccr345:
i would rather not mess with the fsb until i get my other set of ram. i will be fine at 4ghz, for now at least. as for the nb voltage, ill try that and see what happens. thanks

Cool let us know, but what you need to do with the memory is go down in the ratio so its speed is lowered, then raise the bus speed till your ram is at the rated speed.

Below are my system specs and my current BIOS information as listed. I have a feeling that my issue(s) are related to the NB VCC and/or some of the power phase settings.
SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS
Mobo: Asus 990FX Sabertooth
BIOS: 0813

NB VCC: Auto @ 1.10
CPU-NB Vcc: Auto @ 1.125
NB-HT VCC: Auto @ 1.20
Mem Freq: Auto (1333)
CPU & PCIE SS: Auto
DRAM Timing: Auto (1T)

CPU Load Line: High
CPU-NB Load Line: High
CPU Current: Auto
CPU-NB Current: Auto
CPU Power Phase: Extreme
VPU VDDA: Auto
I am rock solid at 4.01GHz via the above settings, however, whenever I attempt to increase the CPU Multiplier to 21 (4.2GHz), I get the dreaded BSOD with an IRQ_NOT_LESS_THEN error.
Should I attempt to slowly increase the CPU-NB current and/or the NB current? All I am looking to do is achieve a stable 4.2GHz. In actuality, there isn't a need to even O/C at all, however, that would be no fun.
Tnx

Hey there, honestly read what i put with firestorm1. Basically looks like you might just need to try a bump in cpu-nb, Safe limit is said to be 1.4-1.45 but I have mine at 1.33 (llc 1.35v) for cpu-nb at 3055mhz. Also want to say your going to need to try to take the cpu-nb speed up, AT LEAST 2600 easy, 2800mhz might need 1.30v+ But if you leave it at 2000 try 1.20-1.25v

the details are in the last page or 2 though

edit, or and also try cpu voltage at 1.43-1.45

might want to try cpu llc at extreme and 120% for now cpu-nb is ok but if you overclock it you might want to try setting it at extreme also and 120%
