Sandy Bridge-E as it ought to have been...with eight cores - Page 2

Suprised no Amd guys came in to flame you

Would you be able to get a shot of the BIOS for us to look at?

I can only think of QPI being unstable with the increase in base clock.

8 cores ? Well my friend they could put 8 cores in the cpu capsule, but they didn't want to put, because they don't have right now competition from AMD.

Simple as that. smile.gif

Sure, see below. Sorry for the long post. I've been looking for an option to adjust the QPI frequency, but I can't find one. hwinfo suggests that my CPU's QPI is running at 6.40 GT/s, so it is a good theory that increasing the baseclock might be making that unstable.

haha, I might have deserved it.

Sortof, though they did "encapsulate" 8 cores into the CPU. The die has eight cores with two disabled. But I agree with you're point about the lack of competition.

I believe the VTTCPU voltage is your QPI voltage, since the older i7 gen(what I have experience with) has its QPI/VTT voltage together and the VTTDDR voltage must be the memory controller voltage.

I can't see anywhere to adjust the speed of the QPI from those screenshots, but adjusting that voltage should at least make you stable on a slight overclock. QPI getting in the range of 8k+ is most likely going to be unstable no matter what you do. 1.35v was the max recommended voltage for the older QPI, so you should be able to at least go to 1.2-1.25v and be fine there.

I'm not 100% sure, so just be careful when taking my suggestions. You should probably up the voltage slowly. I don't want to kill your shiny new 8 core.tongue.gif
