[Solved] BCLK option? (Gigabyte Mobo)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I started my OC'ing 'adventure' just today. I've done lots of research previous month because I think it's better to know a lot about it since I don't want to end up ruining my hardware smile.gif

I was trying to find out my max. BCLK. I adjusted everything I could to it's lowest setting (multipliers etc) and ended up with only being able to see the BCLK, without being able to change it headscratch.gif

The mobo I'm using is the one in my sig.
I was planning on getting a new mobo anyways, but that gave me even more reason to try out the OC'ing. A first try for everything right? Well not for me I guess tongue.gif. I have the latest BIOS for it (F4) and no option to set BCLK control to enabled/disabled.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

again a bump frown.gif this is not feeling ok actually... I just need to know where to find the BCLK changer in the BIOS, but I can't find it. Yes I checked every tab, nothing says something about BCLK except how much it is at (in current stauts, M.I.T.). I can't select those numbers or anything. Please help me out!

next bump: within 24h...

Here's my BIOS - I am on a different mobo chipset and stuff than you, but all gigabyte BIOS's are all similar to one another anyway.

There should be a BLCK control on the CPU advanced settings page. It's been present for years now, so if you really can't find it, it could just be your motherboard being a "Q57" and not a "P55", since that is a lower-end socket 1155 board.

I guess it really is time to get a new mobo then. I can only change the multiplier, maybe that could give some performance boost temporarily smile.gif Thanks for helping out! Btw, this Q57 is a socket LGA1156 biggrin.gif new mobo it is then...grrrr:yessir: I'll look one more time hehe, just to be sure.

Woops, did I say 1155? I meant 1156.

So to be more exact, there are basically lower-end motherboards that have limited functionality, such as not being able to OC.

So in the case of socket 1156, there's like more than 2 "models" - P67, H61, etc. H61 = you cannot OC. So I'm pretty certain it is definitely your motherboard being on the cheaper end of things.

glad I started to like this as a hobby, since a guy in the shop recommended this Q57 not even a year ago (€120...), at least I know which products are worth it myself, without the need of 'advice' from sailsmen. I've been looking all over the place and there are lots of potential mobo's. No idea which one to pick, but I like Gigabyte, been using those for a while, never had trouble with them smile.gif. Most likely going for P55/H55 if going Gigabyte. ASrock boards look nice too. They all look nice sozo.gif. Hard choice... I've been looking at Gigabyte, ASrock (boooh, no SATAIII), MSI and ASUS (= rlly expensive).

If you are willing, I can send a bunch of links of potential mobo's. Be warned, the list could be rather big redface.gif

just a starter: the only msi board that qualifies my needs. 200£, is quite high for a previous generation board, don't you think? confused.gif

The MSI one you linked is cheaper here:

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/msi-p55-gd85-intel-p55-s1156-pci-e-20-(x16)-ddr3-1800-2000-2133-sata-6gb-s-raid-atx

Here's an Asus one:

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-p7p55d-e-deluxe-intel-p55-s1156-pci-e-20-(x16)-ddr3-1333-1600-2200-sata-6gb-s-raid-atx

Basically, if you want all the latest features such as USB 3.0 and SATA 6GB/s, you're going to have spend a lot, since those were considered new technology last year, and weren't as readily available on all of the mainstream and budget boards than the ones which can be found today.

If you are thinking of upgrading your CPU shortly, you may as well not OC and save the funds for sandy bridge imo smile.gif Not only will you still be able to get support for ivy bridge and sandy bridge extreme, but it also means your board will have all of those features for a cheap price.
