lil' help with my i7 930 - Page 2

post #11 of 28
if u want pretty ram use 20x200 but ppl always say u get better stability on avg with odd multis ur call tho w.e. works and like shooting star said take it slow!

I was able to run prime at small ftt on stck voltage until like 3.8Ghz, but after that, it was hard to get it stable...a morning it could run like 30min and the same day crash after 1min or so. I'll start back at the beginning with 1.2 and llc at standard and test XD.

we have the same board. yehey. I can help you overclock that thing.

to get rid of vdroop. go to Load Line Calibration and change it to Level 2

you also might need higher voltage to get it stable at 4ghz. mine needed 1.33v to get it stable at 4ghz. also increase QPI/VTT voltage to at least 1.295v or more

also check your memory voltage. my ram kit was rated at 1.65v but our gigabyte board only has a 1.5v default memory voltage. didn't notice it at first and was a pain. I wasn't able to get anything stable until I found out I needed to increase the voltage

I also recommend using blend for stability testing. Small FFTs don't stress it too much and will probably fail in demanding applications like BF3.

Cool, but I had problems with vtt voltage, going over made windows crash, but setting it back to stock made everything work...but I always get 101(well, when I get some) Bsod, which is suppose to be the vcore too low. I think that at 1.3v I will hit the 90C, which is bad...I'll see what 1.3 and less gives me

your temps are too high. my cooler isn't that good and I never go above 80 degrees on my 4.1ghz oc and it's stupid hot here in manila.

what cooler are you using? hitting 90C at 1.3v is weird. maybe there's something wrong or you might need to reapply tim

bumping the vtt voltage is the key. without doing so with my board (we have the same ) I can't get my pc to boot even with high vcore

I use a corsair A70, but at 1.31, one core was going max 87 C
