Overclock q9550 ASUS P5E3 Premium WiFi 8GB DDR3

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Greetings,
I need some help to overclock my system stable @ 3.4 Ghz 8GB Memory @ 1600Mhz . Every time I run prime95 keeps throwing errors by the first few seconds

Specs:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad q9550 2,83Ghz C1 Revision
MB: ASUS P5E3 Premium WiFi AP@n (uses DDR3 memory)
RAM: 2dimms x 4GB Kingston Genesis 1600 - 9-9-9-24 1.65v dual channel


BIOS SETTINGS
FSB Frequency: 400 Mhz
FSB Strap to NB: 400 Mhz

CPU Multiplier: 8,5

DRAM Frequency: 1600Mhz
DRAM Command Rate: 2N
DRAM CMD Skew on Channel A: read below*
DRAM CMD Skew on Channel B: read below*
DRAM CLK Skew on Channel A: read below*
DRAM CLK Skew on Channel B: read below*
DRAM CTL Skew on Channel A: read below*
DRAM CTL Skew on Channel B: read below*
DRAM Timing Control 9-9-9-24 (Rest left to auto)
DRAM Static Read Control: Auto
DRAM Dynamic Write Control: Auto

Ai Clock Twister: Auto
Ai Transaction Booster: Auto

CPU Voltage: 1,30625V
CPU GTL Voltage Reference (0/2): Auto
CPU GTL Voltage Reference (1/3): Auto
CPU PLL Voltage: 1,58V
FSB Termination Voltage: 1,24V
DRAM Voltage: 1,66V (no option for 1,65)
NB Voltage: 1,45V
NB GTL Voltage Reference: Auto
SB Voltage: 1,05V
Clock Over-Charging Voltage: Auto

Load-Line Calibration: Normal
CPU Spread Spectrum: Auto
PCIE Spread Spectrum: Auto
CPU Clock Skew: Delay 300ps (read below)*
NB Clock Skew: Delay 300ps (read below)*

So, by these settings, I ran small FFT tests that involve CPU mostly, got an error @ 2nd hour running. But when I run the Large FFT tests I am getting errors immediately (they test more RAM as it says)

******
I have tried increasing the voltages on CPU - PLL - NB - DRAM to no effect. By reading this thread the guy says about tweaking the CPU + NB Clock Skew to 300ps for the FSB ratio I'm using, although the DRAM Skew controls are far too many step combinations to try!


Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Try this

Ai Clock Twister: Disabled
Ai Transaction Booster: Disabled

CPU Voltage: 1.35V
CPU GTL Voltage Reference (0/2): Auto
CPU GTL Voltage Reference (1/3): Auto
CPU PLL Voltage: 1.5
FSB Termination Voltage: 1.25V
DRAM Voltage: 1,66V (no option for 1,65)
NB Voltage: 1,425V
NB GTL Voltage Reference: Auto
SB Voltage: 1,05V
Clock Over-Charging Voltage: Disabled

Load-Line Calibration: High/Full
CPU Spread Spectrum: Disabled
PCIE Spread Spectrum: Disabled
CPU Clock Skew: Disabled
NB Clock Skew: Disabled


If that doesn't work boost your Vcore/CPU Volts up to 1.4V If still no go, try checking your RAM, maybe a bad stick. Or upping the DRAM to 1.7V

today's results still the same, I increased cpu up to 1,4 and ram up to 1,8 . There's also no option for Ai Clock Twister - Transaction booster to disable them. I can only set Clock Twister in scales from light to strong for stability or performance and Transaction Booster has a number that has something to do with the fsb strap and it scales from 01 to 31. Lower values increase performance it says.
Anyways, the drams I think are fine because I tried different sets of them, how likely is it that I have to mess with the skews? Has anyone before oc-ed an q9550 with 8 gigs of ddr3?

You might have to, but i have seen 4Ghz+ and the Skews were disabled or off.

You might have to bump up the QTL? i think it is called if you got more than 2 Sticks of RAM smile.gif
