Overclocking i7 980x - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Thread Starter 
Thanks for the help!

So as far as the RAM goes, I need to make sure that is all set to 133 as well?

You can set it to detect automatically, as that is the defaults, and the program works to adjust RAM settings automatically...

You can leave it set to auto in the BIOS, but it might not detect correctly and speeds might not run to their specifications so I would recommend reading the box/manual of speed and timings and just manually set them also...

Note: you can add your signature rig into your profile so we can see all your hardware and help you out a lot faster... just like most of our profiles...

By the pics they look good... I couldn't do stress testing at that low of voltage so run Prime95 for 2 hours and see if it lasts and pay attention to temps...

Hey again,

I overclocked it again, this time to 4.13ghz at the same voltage. Ran Prime95 for 6 hours and used realtemp to monitor the temperature. Temps never got above 61, and they averaged around 56-58.

For some reason cpu-z says my voltage is lower than what i set it to in the BIOS. In the BIOS i set it to 1.24v, not sure why that doesn't show that on cpu-z.

Any software will not show the exact voltage, CPU-Z does the same on my system. The only way to tell the actual voltage is to use a multimeter.
