hey guys! i need help about my ram im using F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL g skill, im now at 4.4ghz i5 3570k
but in order to achieve this i need to increase my qpi/vtt voltage to 1.225, is this safe? and i still got
whea errors,, mad.gif
post #6412 of 9531
The OP has a list of voltage limits. For the IMC/QPI/VTT it says a max of 1.08V. I'd say you're well above that if your stated voltage is correct.

I'm in the process of stressing through Prime95 to see how low I can get the vcore to be!
So I learent today that overcloking your ram would lower your cpu overclock potential.. interesting indeed.. smile.gif

yeah - sometimes the IMC can do that. Remember, if your ram is 1866 spec, you're not OCing the RAM... you're OCing the IMC. But your mobo and chip should do 1866 no problem. It's always better to start your oc with ram at a stock SPD, and then load it's XMP for 1866, in this case. If you have control on the temps, a few extra mV vcore can be beneficial - sometimes working towards the lowest vcore with p95 can throw a surprise bsod or whea in game or with partial load, so it's good to be sure you're not overvolting the thing, no need to go too low.
if you haven't already, set this up before final stress testing. Check for those pesky whea.

No. uh... really 1.225V in VTT? please post screenshots of your bios and fill out your rig (and add to your signature block under "Profile"). AND drop vtt to auto for now. something is not set right.

Temporarily left this club for Gigabyte but I'm proud to say I'm coming back. The UD5H has loads of issues and I'd rather put the $150 into a new monitor. But I have almost confirmed 100% that my issue with the 3570k reaching close to 100C is the CPU itself, not the mobo like I thought. Besides, I'm so used to ASR's simple BIOS so I knew I'd be back eventually.

Good job!thumb.gif

The temps weren't bad to begin with to be honest..
My beginning was 4.6 with overclocked ram to 1866 stable @ 1.312 vcore..
I was able to go as low as 1.288 vcore without the ram overclocked to 1866!
But I enjoyed seeing my memory at 1866.. and decided to keep my original overclock..

Thanks again for your great help..
post #6418 of 9531
hey guys!! seem's i figure it out, as i said before i can't overclock my z77 extreme6 @4.4ghz
but when i try to overclock my system in single channel mode it works like a charm without
any whea error 3 hour's of prime 27.7 vcore @ 1.224-234, offset was -0.05 with llc lvl 5,
the odd case was dual channel.. it bosd me for bout 5 mins or so.. mad.gif i tried raising voltage
vtt,vcore,pll it gives me bsod, also tried playing timings of ram
can't seem to run stable, i did memtest my ripjaw x 1600 for 7 hours without any error's
sorry if i cannot post pics right now, too busy to do that..
post #6419 of 9531
Well, running Dual Channel does put more stress to the IMC, so there you go.
You can also try to switch from slot 1/3 to 2/4 (or vice versa) for Dual Channel, it could make a difference (although it really shouldn't if everything is working as it's supposed to).

What BSOD error codes did you receive while running Dual Channel?
post #6420 of 9531
i already did that no luck, put my stick 2/4, so i got bsod 0x124 i know it's vcore or vtt, vtt seems help to stabilize a bit but i am afraid to put too much of vtt.. im trying to rma my stick for corsair vengeance, see if its really the ram problem..
the weird part was if i put too much voltage either on vcore or turbo voltage, it get bsod 124, it only runs if i put the correct amount of voltage needed.. i thought even i put alot of voltage it will run prime perfect without gettng bsod and the real deal was the temps.. sorry im a noob overclocker biggrin.gif
