i7 930 Overclock with ThermalTake Frio Currently at 3.6Ghz

post #1 of 11

Hey everyone

I wanted to post my BIOS settings along with my results with 3 hours of Prime95. My goal is to get to 4.0Ghz with the desktop but I wanted some advice as to what would be my best bet as far as doing so.

One strange this is that my RAM should be running at 9-9-9-24 based on the specs but in the DRAM Timing Control it says.....
6-6-6-18-3-64-6-5-16

424Also do any of you with an ATCS 840 have experience with the capabilities for the extra fans? I can add 3 more inside but I don't think it will make a major difference.....

Not sure how to resolve this. I'll attach a pic with the temp and my specs. Can't wait to hear what everyone thinks!

do you have timings manually set in the bios?

also try manually setting your dram frequency to the one desired
as well as your uclk to 2x your dram frequency.

looks good though otherwise tho you have some headroom for a little more OC

Depending on your ram speed and settings, you should be able to run 4.0GHz:

CPU Voltage Control.................................[Manual]
CPU Voltage...............................................[1.2750-1.325v] = Depends on your CPU
CPU PLL Voltage.......................................[1.80]
QPI/DRAM Core Voltage...........................[1.225] = Should be fine with DDR3 1600 ram
IOH Voltage.................................................[1.14]
IOH PCIE Voltage.......................................[1.50]
ICH Voltage.................................................[1.10]
ICH PCIE Voltage.......................................[1.50]
DRAM Bus Voltage.....................................[1.64]

Than try these Settings:
Ai Overclock Tuner....................................[Manual]
CPU Ratio Setting....................................[21.0]
Intel(r) SpeedStep(tm) Tech.....................[Disabled]
Xtreme Phase Full Power Mode...............[Auto]
BCLK Frequency......................................[191]
PCIE Frequency.......................................[100]
DRAM Frequency.....................................[Auto] = Set to 1531
UCLK Frequency.......................................[Auto]
QPI Link Data Rate...................................[Auto]

Dram Timing Control and set your timings to:
DRAM CAS# Latency...............................[9]
DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay....................[9]
DRAM RAS# PRE Time...........................[9]
DRAM RAS# ACT Time...........................[24]
DRAM RAS# to RAS# Delay....................[Auto]
DRAM REF Cycle Time...........................[59]




Here is a decent video tutorial. I wouldn't worry about the CPU Clock Skew, but his video is pretty much spot on:

Thanks! I'm currently running Prime right now at 4.0 so I'll post the results either later tonight or tomorrow!

Hey everyone. Just wanted to post an update. The bios settings below are what I used to achieve the 4.0Ghz with a 12 hour Prime95. Any suggestions on how I can improve this? I know the temps are getting high (I'll include a pic). I also got my memory timings back to where they should be so we are good there. Look forward to hearing from you guys!

looks good man. try shooting for lower vcore is about all you can do at this point.
lower one notch and retest. your temps are acceptable for a 12hour prime95.
just dont let any core get over 85c at a max temp.

Question for everyone. So I got another 6GB of ram. Same XMS3 DD3 1600 RAM. So now I have 12GB total. I had a stable OC of 4Ghz that I even Prime95'd for 24 hours. However when I installed the extra 6GB of RAM my OC failed and I had to switch back to defaults. Does anyone know what may have caused this? Is there a setting that kicks back when you add so much RAM? Thanks!

when you use all 6 of your dimms you put alot more work on your IMC. on an asus board, your IMC voltage = QPI in your bios. try setting this higher. this is probably the cause of your instability. try increasing qpi until stable just stay withing .5 of your dram voltage and not over 1.35 (intel's spec, although many people i see go higher just stick with this to be safe).

and also what bsod code did you get?

I'm running 6 modules in my own system, and did 2 builds last month for friends using 6 modules. What I did to get my friend's ASUS P6T-Deluxe V2 to recognize all 6 modules and stay stable was to increase the following voltage:

QPI/DRAM Core Voltage...........................[1.25]

If that doesn't work, try 1.275v. These are very safe voltages and will not harm the CPU, ram or motherboard. This is voltage for the link between the Integrated memory Controller (IMC) and the ram. It is just as LilScrappyD said, you need more voltage for the added strain of running 6 dimms.

From the looks of these settings and what you guys have said this is not good. Here is a pic of the temps through the 12 hour Prime.....

378

I think 1.275 and it failed on the Vcore. Maybe I'll try again because I could be wrong. But are my settings dangerous to my system?
