980 has a QPI of 4.8 Voltage range of 0.8–1.300 V (intel specs)
980x has a QPI of 6.4 Voltage range of 0.8–1.375 V (intel specs)

The 980 is not an EE cpu as the 980x is.

(980)


(980x)
I meant $500 extra for an unlocked multi
980 : $500
980x : $1000
Difference : $500

Unless you got a bad chip, 4.0 is easily attainable with stock voltage. I'm pretty close to getting 4.2 stable at stock too. This is also with 12gb ram.

So Should I set it back to the stock voltage in the bios, and what is the stock voltage for a i7980x? Also, are there any settings you need to change when overclocking for the RAM?

Extreme edition chips are always a rip-off for the vast majority of people.

Stock voltage without LLC?

You could try stock voltage, and increase if from there if you do need more.

There are lots of settings you'll need to change to get the most out of any OC.

Im running the same CPU @ 4.4GHz with all 6 DIMMS used. Works without problems.
The i7 980x is pretty easy to OC.

I agree the voltage is too high... My slower, locked CPU does 4.0GHZ at 1.24V... and temps with my cooler do not reach above 75C...
Do things with the BIOS and stress test by manually adjusting the voltage until it becomes unstable...
Remember, too high voltage puts out unnecessary heat and too little doesn't power enough and will crash...

So, I should try getting everything back to default values. Such as the bclk to 133, voltage to 1.24v, and the multiplier to 25. Then I should be able to go into the BIOS and simply change the multiplier to say 30 and I should get around 4.0ghz correct?

yeah, reset settings to default on that program, then uninstall it...
Then go into the BIOS...
Just pay attention to the 133bclk to match your RAM speeds...
the unlocked CPU allows you to go past the 25 multiplier to get better or more adjustable overclocks... take advantage of that, and I also heard keeping it at an odd number, 31 or 29 is also good...
