post #311 of 6491
22Trying to get a stable 4.6Ghz on an Asus P9X79 with Kingston HyperX 1600 XMP and Intel Liquid Cooling but doesn't pass the IntelBurnTest. Does anyone have screenshots of their bios settings for this board at that speed? All the different settings are a bit overwhelming, want to make sure I get it right. Thanks in advance.

Funny you should mention it i am using the exact same 1.288v (1.285 set in BIOS) as you are with a Sabertooth x79, lovely board isnt it :-)

On mine thats the lowest stable voltage for 125x37@4625mhz, 4.7g needs close to 1.3v. Plenty of headroom for clock speed and voltages looking at what other people are running, i just found this the best compromise of speed vs heat for me.

ohh good, yes its a great board.. so easy to tailor fans & config limits..

i'm gonna stick with this setup for now.. go 4.625 Ghz once i do a couple projects on premiere
and i have my zalmans on the kuhler 920 setup...

i'm amazed at how low vcore runs so stable though, 53deg, absolutely laughing
max i7 is 66deg!!!


just realized you're in Dublin, pretty cool!

Nice build. If you do media production you should check out the link in my sig to Seans ramdisk guide. Ramdisks are great for dumping raw files for editing and so on.

This is my settings 2314913.png

try more voltage possible.
post #317 of 6491
thumb.gif 1.41 V Core Voltage works and is pretty stable running IBT. I followed some settings I found here
I am planning to keep my machine running at this setting for my everyday use http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2315892
Is this a safe setting for my components? My CPU is at about 38 degrees idle.

Noob to Overclock/Learning
I have posted for help a few places, and cannot get a response. Im very gun shy on overclocking right now due to lack of knowledge. and the more i read and study i get confused from the different steps people take. I dont understand what my problem is. I guess i dont want to hurt my first build. what i would like is a beginner overclock, and after reading this tread. I see that 4.5 is a very reasonable goal. I also want to keep my mem @ 2133. what will be the things i need to disable or leave at auto.

Right now i have the board very stable at stock CPU settings(3.6)please dont laugh. I did have to change a few things for RIVE to recognize my ram. Dominator 8x4gbs 2133. At first it would not see the 32gbs and was locked at 1333. However, i followed the guide and was able to fix this problem. The steps i followed are

1. XMB set.
2. tweak mode set at 2
3. VCCSA Current Capability at 140%
4. DRAM-AB/CD Current Capability at 130%
5.CPU & PCIe Spread Spectrum: disabled
now the memory is recognized correctly at stock cpu

NOTE: i had to RMA my 7970. But i threw my old faithful 6970 back in .

this my build
I7 3820
rampage 4 extreme
Dominator 8 x4gbs @ 2133
H100 push/pull
ASUS 7970 TOP
XFX 1250 blck edition PSU
CM storm trooper case

If you guys can and willing to help me, i appreciate any advice. Again, im trying to learn how to overclock properly, but i tend to over study things. Then i have to go back read again. I guess i burn myself out. also here is a pic in case i missed something. thank you so much for any help.

Hey guys,

I'm hoping to join your ranks in a few weeks (coming from a 1090t)

I have been trying to make this work for me but I'm worried about the difference between 2600k and this.

If you could go back and do it again, would you buy the 3820? go bigger? or back to 2600k?
