have set both to 200. there isn't a 3rd place to put in such a number on gigabyte boards. thanks for the input! smile.gif

The only other thing I can think of is to try setting your dram voltage from 1.35 to 1.455. Even though they are advertised to run at 1.35, I had trouble running my 890FX set up with my Ecos until I bumped the dram voltage.

Those two things combined should bring about stability for your OC.

As i said on the previous page these are my settings now and i appear to be stable after over 2 hours of prime and some gaming on metro etc. too
so here's the settings i've got with 2 hours stable so far

multi: 44
c1: enabled
c3/c6: disabled
cpu thermal monitor: disabled
EIST: enabled

Multisteps load line: disabled
Vcore: 1.31
QPI/VTT: 1.1
CPU PLL: 1.7

With these settings i appear to have 1.32vcore idle and up to 1.34 in prime and 1.37 in games is this bad that i don't have volts equivilant to what i actually set in the bios

temps are around 42-44 idle and 68 max when under load

let me know what you think i should do next

thanks!

edit: one other thing am i actually getting any benefit from having the core clock go back to 1.6ghz idle considering it's still putting 1.32 volts through it. would it be better to turn eist and c1 off to have 4.4 ghz all the time??

Most people will recommend running prime over night as it tests different combinations of your hardware at different points.

Unless you experience severe stability issues in the lower p states, i dont think you need to disable them.

The one oddity I see is that prime runs lower voltage than metro. Were you running prime blend or small fft?

Letting it idle at 1.6 is actually better, If you use Offset voltage when it's idle it'll idle at 0.950 - 1.000v. Find your stable load voltage (12 hours of prime95) then we will help you setup offset voltage.

Brilliant thanks very much guys sending you all rep. Will run prime in a bit and find out what the voltage shows. guessing this will be my stable yes??

Yes, I'd recommend 12 hours just to be sure so you don't have to rinse and repeat everything once you've already setup offset voltage.

No problem! waiting is the worst part :/ Let us know how it goes we'll be glad to help you with offset voltage!
