Sandy Bridge E Overclocking Guide Walk through, Explanations, and Support for all X79 Overclockers - Page 27

post #261 of 397
My chip is ******* hopeless.

BSOD at 1.424v 4.4ghz during prime95 in about 5 or 10 minutes.

8 Sticks of ram (8x4GB)

now on 0.125v offset for 1.440volt load

******* throttles during prime95. Also prime95 is good to check stability, i run 28GB tests.

What kind of BSOD?

What kind of CPU?

Hmm.... the more sticks of RAM, the harder it is to OC. Well, it was for me when i had a 1090t.

And, can you get a dump of the BSOD? Mine turned out to be the ****ty Intel storage RAID drivers that BSODed mine every 30 minutes almost clockwork. I uninstalled those, its fine now.

Also, your avatar is very fitting for that post.

Does the Assassin 2 allow offset mode to be used with LLC? On my Z68 Gigabyte board it did not work but it did work well on my Asus Z68 board which ran a 2600k @ 5Ghz. Is it now possible to use both offset and LLC on X79 Gigabyte boards?
post #265 of 397
Thanks, this is a great guide and explanation to those who have just started out with overclocking. Makes quite a lot of sense and has increased my knowledge and confidence greatly:)

May try applying this to surpass 4.4 on my 3820 with a ga-x79-ud3 board smile.gif

Thanks again smile.gif

Naturally every now & then one slams into a giant exception to any rule. biggrin.gif

A 3930K system I built for someone recently was maxed out with 64GB GSkill TridentX (8x8GB DIMMs). I was stunned how easy it was to get the
oc setup at the target 2133 RAM speed. No effort whatsoever; during all the testing, not a single BSOD, just some odd artifacts within After Effects
which required the CPU to be dropped just one peg from 4.8 to 4.7 (it passed all standard stress tests and benchmarks at 4.8, including an hour
of P95 1344/1792, but AE is more demanding than any of those, gobbling up 40+GB RAM to render one my colleague's visual effects shots).

See:

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2656382

Note it's a pretty loaded system aswell re PCIe devices (Quadro 4000 and two GTX 460s).

I put it down to two factors: the excellent ASUS P9X79 WS mbd, and the sheer luck of my friend for whom I obtained a 3930K that played so nice,
with such a low vcore to boot. I was so impressed I'm building a replica system for myself, though the oc is not yet sorted out (no idea if my own
chip will fare quite so well).

I have to agree about the excellence of some Asus X79 motherboards. I picked up a Gigabyte Assassin 2, same that Sin0822 has and I am slightly bemused that such a knowledgeable and respected guy has such a relatively poor motherboard. It only has 4+1 true phase count and the quality of phase surely isn't going to be as high as some scoring 2.5 out of 4 for PWM complexity. If I was paying full price I would have gone with Asus but for 25% of the cost of a new one it was too good to pass up. I find the bios very poorly implemented and designed. Almost as if the gimmicky '3D' bios is mainly there to obfuscate it's deficiencies.

LLC does not work with DVID offset. Some things I can only change in the 3D bios but then have to go back into the 'standard' MIT section of the bios to change something else related to it. There is nowhere to enable/disable audio or any LAN functions. It's slow and unresponsive etc. None of these accusations I can throw at the Asus motherboard and bios. I can only presume that Gigabytes X79 UP5 is much better but I can't think for the life of me why anybody would pay a £300+ for the G1 Assassin 2. The only redeeming features that I can see are the onboard sound which is great and the colour scheme (if you don't mind fluorescent green).
post #268 of 397
I seem to remember reading in an X79 review that Gigabyte was a bit late to the graphical BIOS party. Ah well,
at least you have your chip running at a decent clock! 8)

Sorted it out.

3930K needs 0.165v Offset and LLC at level 4(reading the Asus/GSkill overclocking guide worked that out)

Doesn't throttle, just under recommended max temps.

OC my RAM (8 sticks 2133Mhz @1.8v (running memtest 5b6 sorted out the settings).

In bios on the Asrock Exteme9, everything is auto except offset, LLC, and ram volts.

1.8V for the RAM sounds a bit high; you sure that's going to be ok? I hope you have something extra helping
to cool the RAM modules.
