stuck at a wall wen OCing

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to get my rig to 4.2GHz. At the moment I am at 195 bclk, 21 multi, with a cpu volt of 1.33. I'm not able to get 200+ bclk. Iv tried up to around 1.6 cpu volts with still no luck. Any ideas to squeeze out just a tad bit more bclk?

What do have the memory/uncore speeds at & what VTT voltage are you setting?

VTT(QPI/DRAM in bios) is 1.3 and idk wat uncore is set too. I don't remember changing it so its prob auto. I'm in the middle of testing my current speed. Is there a way to check it without going into bios

Auto should be fine for the uncore frequency, usually sets it at 2x where it should be.
Try a bit higher uncore if it fails, 1.35 or so, have read some of the 950s need a bit more & seen some people setting 1.35 for 4 - 4.2Ghz (~1600Mhz memory & 3200Mhz uncore).

Ok I'll try that after the my 6 hour test. So if it doesn't work I'll know I still have a solid OC at 4.1GHz. I'm getting watercooling but that's in a diff thread. Don't know anything about water cooling lol. Thx ftw...
