I'd set My BIOS to 4.7ghz but still having trouble with some thread running P95 1344 & 1792 (RAM @ 90%) in 15mins per Iterations.

here's my settings :
clock : 4.7
pll overvoltage : enabled
speedstep : enabled
turbo limit : manual
short : 250
long : 250
Core current limit : 250
spread spectrum : disabled

Vcore : offset (0.105v)
DRam Voltage : 1.529 (default)
pll voltage : 1.709v
vtt ; auto

temps
max TEMP at RealTemp at 68c

voltages
BIOS : 1.368, 1.376, 1.384 voltages
CPU-Z (under load) 1.360, 1.680, 1.376, 1.384 sometimes it's just 1.344v (is this normal voltages, not having stable or sticking to one or two kinds of voltages?)

Questions :
* what should I tweak? add vcore (note that I'm already at .105v at offset settings and temps are high too)
* should I set my VTT to 1.122 or 1.131v (currently at AUTO)
* should I decrease or increase my PLL Voltage (Currently at manual : 1.709v)
What would be the solution of THREAD ERROR in PRIME95?
Thank you!

I hope the bolded red was a typo. I believe some one proved 1.7v actually kills chips very quickly. I'm almost positive you meant 1.380 though thumb.gif.

You're BIOS voltages are very close to actual voltages in the OS. That is great! Don't mess with your LLC setting.


A thread error is almost always vcore. And yes, you need more of it.

VTT rarely ever affects an overclock. I would not mess with it. (Leave it at auto.)

PLL Voltage can afffect an overclock, but nearly as much as vcore.

The best solution would be to increase vcore (try going to +0.115v), followed by increasing PLL a little (one notch maybe) (don't go any lower).

Temps are just fine, you can go as high as 85C. The chip won't shut down till 98C (which is the actual overclocking limit) but I wouldn't recomend it, and frankly a Sandybridge chip should never hit those temps.

Kennyparker1337 : Dude.....just came across this thread and wanted to say thank you for making it! I'll be ordering up a new Asrock board within a couple weeks after I find out what Ivy is going to do. But either way......this thread is great and I plan on trying to learn a lot from it!

+ 1 on the rep thing! I would have given you 10.....but they only allow one. thumb.gif

Yes that was a TYPO ERROR I MEANT 1.380v as you'd guessed.
I will try raising my vcore at .115v and PLL. But my PLL next notch is something like 1.75v, is that ok?

Use ATTO Benchmark to test both your SSD and HDD: http://www.softpedia.com/dyn-postdownload.php?p=145293&t=4&i=1
I recently tested a Corsair Force 3 and got speeds of more than 500GB/s on a random SATA cord but plugged into the Intel SATA 3 port (not Marvel).
In case you're wondering, the first 2 Sata 3 ports are Intel, and the last 2 are Marvel (lesser performance). The first 4 should be all Intel Sata 2.

Thanks. I had not read anything from manufacturers mandating the use of sata3 cables, so I was doubtful. But seeing it on the cable made me wonder.

Thanks for the lead on the benchie.

BTW, the ASRock z68 Extreme3 does not have any Marvell ports, only the two Intel Sata3 and 4 Intel Sata2. That's fine with me, I knew that when I bought the mobo, for this particular setup I do not need any more than that.

Why don't you take your sig and turn it into a rig build?

Too lacy, I guess. biggrin.gif

But seriously, what do you mean by a rig build? Is that like a system description? At the forum where I mod, most folks simply list their builds in their sig.

People used to list their build like you do, but that was during the old format when the rig builder didn't exist. Now Overclock.net is much cooler! coolsmiley03.png

Now there is a button at the very top right of the website, Rig Builder, that lets you edit a complete system and then you can add it into your sig. Like you see my "Operation: Maximum Overdrive" in my sig. thumb.gif

"annoying buzzing"? Bad enough to need headphones? Really? You hear the pump over all the fans? I read that the pump can get loud - and that dialing it down a bit will make it silent. (the in-line diode thing, or maybe the e3g3 bios?). Wow, now i'm worried. the H80 is "in transit" from corsair.

I wouldn't need headphones, its not that loud. But I can hear it over the rest of my computer, and am just glad I have headphones so I don't ever hear it.

I did have to return one though because the pump was REALLY loud. Like hear it in another room bad. They have had lots of problems with the H series. But most of them are pretty quiet.

Installed the H80 today. didn't even switch out teh thermal grease (maybe later). Max Temps lowered by 12oC during a blend run! Excellent cooler. Thanks fo the advice. What a ridiculous PITA to get the rad and fan hooked up initially... theres a bracket on the TJ09 MB tray that put up a fight. Haven't cursed at an inanimate object like that in a while! Have a telecon for the next few hours, will try 46-47x soon and see if temps stay down better.

Many thanks to Kenny and Lucky!
