overclocking

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. I just overclocked my CPU to 4.7 ghz and ran intel burn test on Maximum. I ended up getting these results

http://img718.imageshack.us/img718/3356/60098793.jpg

I am very new to using intel burn test so can anyone tell me if what i am doing is correct. I also will run prime95 for about 5-10 hours to see if anything comes up. Lastly My temps seemed pretty low not passing 60 degrees. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

P.s Is there a way to overclock cpu to 4.7 but when its not running at full load go down to its normal 16 multiplier or 33x? I know it has to do with the halt/turbo. But at the moment i have the turbo off.

Thank you

gigabyte z6 ud3hb3

everything else seem alright? MY burntest and temps and cpuz?
post #4 of 34
Yah seems fine. (though the screen shows it not under load so basing it off what you said before being under 60) Have you tried tuning your voltage? Dropping it down till it becomes unstable (under load) and the come back up? so then you have the least amount of thermal rise under load

it went through 10 tests at max in intel burn test. 10 sec in prime 95 and i get a blue screen =[

Well this is up to you but if you are serious about using dynamic vcore then you could just stop right now and start overcolcking using dvid and not worry about you failing prime because eventually you will have to pass prime again with 47 using dynamic so this is up to you. I could not get my chip stable past 46 so i switched to dynamic and am much happier with my voltages/ overclock. Those temps/ voltages/ and seem fine with Intel Burn test. Try upping your vcore and see if you can pass prime.

Gigabyte you say??? I have a gigabyte and am running my porcessor using dynamic voltage, which allows you to change your voltages to 1.6 and load voltage of about .9 depending on your dynamic voltage and how high it is.

One thing to remember that with most gigabyte boards you NEED to disable Multi step load line in order for your DVID (dynamic voltage) to "register" correctly. Ok now to the good stuff
Before you start overclocking using dynamic voltage boot up using your Manual voltage OC of 47 and take not of a couple of things...
VID:this is the voltage you have set in the bios under vcore
Vdroop: Looking at your picture in your Original Post I see that it says 1.356 I would run this gain and take note of the lowest number you get and the number you hover at the most.
Vcore: this is what your chip is at when you are at idle. This is not extremely important but it will be good to know later.

Now once you have all of these numbers you need to go into the bios and change a couple of settings. One thing to note is that The principle of keeping a stable voltage under load still applies with Dynamic Voltage overclocking or DVID. There is a plus or a minuse to DVID and this simply replaces LLC or Multi step load line. There is a way to find your dynamic voltage using the numbers I had you take down before but with my motherboard the equation did not work for me Plus the fact that you are at 47 makes using dynamic voltage a little more tricky therefore I would Highly suggest you start at a lower multi such as 42-45 and work your way up I started at 41 just to be safe and then got stable and moved up.

In the bios set these settings
Multi: x33
Turbo (I would start at 43 but you can choose what ever you feel comfortable starting with
vcore: Normal (Not auto because this changes the voltage periodically you wont a stable voltage so you must pick "normal"
DVID: Set this to +/- 0.000 for right now.
QPI/VTT:Set this to what you needed it to be at 47
Disbale all C states for right now while we are trying to get the chip stable (we will enable these latter for the idle advantages!)

Now hit F10 or what ever it is to save to cmos and quit and if the operating system posts then go BACK into the bios and look to see what your Vcore is at (NOT the number you see beside CPU VCORE in your bios (this is your DVID) but the actual voltage your chip is stting at while you are in the bios) . You want this number to be as close to your DVID as possible. If this number is not close enough this is where you add DVID So for example
CPU VID: 1.30
Bios VCORE: Lets say in the bios it is hovering between 1.20 and 1.15
CPU DVID: you now know that you need to add + .010 volts so do this
F10
Now go back into the bios again (I know it is alot of going back and forth into the bios but it will be worth it later.) Make sure everything is ok and now go into your os and stress test.
Keep doing this and you will get to 4.7 in no time. Good luck!

Remember MOVE IN SMALL STEPS and watch your voltages carefully. Most people find that their chip needs more voltages using dynamic then they do using manual for some reason. Have fun.

you have to set dynamic voltage to have the voltage drop with frequency when you enable C1E and EIST. So use that voltage, it is an offset, you set positive and it adds that to your VID. Watch out tho, as yoru VID changes, so your VID at stock isn't the same as yoru VID at 4.2ghz.

What i recommend is that you increase the frequency without changing vcore, until you cannot post. Once you find that max multi without you changing the voltage, should be around 4.2-4.5ghz. Then act as that is your VID, then add voltage to that to equal your current stable vcore.

Thank you so much for all your work. Its been so tough for me to overclock. I am a noob at it But i have read so much. and watched countless videos. Just so hard when everyone says different things. I hear disable c1e and eist or enable. Disable or enable turbo, or set certain values. and much much much more. So its very hard and with most motherboards having different layouts and really no reviews for gigabytes out there on YouTube. It is super tough. I'm at a point where i feel like no matter how much i read i am still getting stuck at some points. So Forgive me for my slow thinking but i am going to try to explain what I'm doing so y'all can work with the information i know

first i navigate to the M.I.T menu in the bios.
Go to advanced frequency settings
There i can change the cpu clock from 33x
THere is also a BCLK control which i dont touch cus you dont screw with it. or at least i dont cus i dont need to go that high of a OC
XMP disabled Extreme memory profile
System memory multiplier SPD is on auto
Memory frequency is 1333 but my memory is 1600.. so should i change SPD to make frequency of memory 1600
And there is an advanced CPU Core features

I then click advanced CPU core features
Here the options are
PWM freq Control AUTO
CPU over current protection AUTO
Internal SPU PLL overvoltage AUTO (i should enable right?)
Real time ratio changes in OS Disabled ( do i enable so i can see the ratios change in cpu z?)
Turbo boos tech AUTO
Turbo ratio clocks 1-4/power limit watts/ core current limit amps 37,36,35,34/95/97 (some guides say change that?)
cpu cores enabled (all of course )
C1E AUTO ( i should disable?)
C3/C6 Auto (disable?)
cpu thermal monitor AUTO (disable)
EIST Funtion CPU AUTO (disable?)
Bi directional PROCHOT Auto (DIsable?)


last but not least the voltage control page **almost there ** =]
multi steps load line Disabled (some reviews say put to level 4 or 2?)
cpu vcore 1.240
DVID (i cant change it and its at 0
QPI VTT ( some guides said 1.1V)
System agent voltage .920V (i dont touch?)
Graphics CORe 1.040 (i dont mess with right?)
Dram voltage (some say 1.65 instead of 1.5)



Now im sorry i had to write all this out but this is what i understand and what i want to ask someone.
I just want a stable 4.5-4.7ghz cpu speed. I have the cooler for it and everything is ready to build a home for this wonderful CPU
I know that to get higher speeds you have to upp the Voltage manually if the current voltage cant support that clock speed. I understand that there is something called dynamic VID in which the bios will automatically choose the voltage for you, But from what i heard it tends to always estimate higher than the expected. As far as memory questions i can tackled later. I am going to reread the above 2 posts to see if i can squeeze more info out of them so i can understand. Oh and finally i really want to figure out how i can have a low clock speed when not at load and back to 4.5-4.7 when at load or playing games?.

again THANK YOU SOO MUCH IN advanced.

You need to have turbo enabled for it to drop down to 1.6GHz when not under load and you should also setup offset voltage to keep it low at idle.

1. I love YOU I LOVE YOU
2. I actually understood you i cant believe it
3. My last post was without me reading your post fully 2-3 times.
4. SO just to make sure i went into my bios on the main screen it says CPu freq 4300 .... vcore 1.320
5. when i go into my actual CPU vcore i see 1.355
6. SO i chould change my dvid to .03v
7. Now i turn os on and test through P95 for 2-5 hours and see the result?
8. THen I come back and move the turbo up to 44 from 43 and test. ANd work my way up.
9. WHen i figure it all then i can officially put my actual multiplier to that freq. for ex. if i reach stable 4.5-4.6?
10. then i can begin to enable or disable the advanced C1e stuff or w.e.

Only question is when i test the turbo at 44 and its stable does that mean i can now put my multiplier to 44 and it will be stable?
And when i move up to 45 turbo and its stable i can then move multiplier to 45?

i dont want to overwhelm you with the millions of questions flooding to my frontal cortex. So i will wait until you have replied
