Welcome everyone here! biggrin.gif It's nice to see so many new people coming aboard. I've been very busy and I apologize for that. My wife is deployed to Afghanistan. sad-smiley-002.gif Our two children and RL have been keeping me on my feet. sonic.gif

If you haven't had the chance yet or if your board hasn't arrived, please remember to sign up in the second post of this thread. Thank you very much! biggrin.gif

For overclocking the 3930k, you should leave the BCLK at 100 or 133. You can push your OC to 101, or 134, but the further you get from the straps, the less likely you are to have stablitiy.

Adjust your overclock through the unlocked multi.

I'm on 104 BCLK now and the system appears to be quite stable. It also appeared stable at BCLK 106, but I did not do extensive testing.

If possible, I'd like to keep the voltage offset functionality, which means using BCLK of 10*. The only reason why I'm playing with pushing the BCLK up from 100 is to get my memory speed up as high as possible from DDR-1600. With a BCLK of 106, this gives be DDR-1696. Anything higher than this and I can't seem to boot into Windows. Even at stock CPU multiplier, BCLK, loose memory timings, various voltages on VDIMM, VCCSA, VTT, the system just won't work at DDR-1866 when more than 4 or 5 DIMM slots are populated (more or less 1 DIMM per channel). I realize that the difference between DDR-1600 and DDR-1700 is negligible. I'm just playing around trying to see where the limit actually is.

The other interesting thing I noticed as mentioned previously is that my video car won't initialize at BCLK higher than 104 when GEN3 mode is selected, but will in GEN2. I've also noticed that using GEN2 instead of GEN3 seems to have no effect on 3D performance. If anything my benchmark scores have been marginally higher with GEN2.

Edit: I'm not having too much problem overclocking the CPU. Only the ram. To be honest, I did not expect much higher speeds with 8 slots populated, but I thought I'd be able to hit DDR-1866, as I've heard of others with the same ram config on X79 reaching this. As for the CPU, I can boot into Windows at 5Ghz if I enable PLL overvoltage, disable speed step and push Vcore to 1.48. However this is not very useful for 24/7. Right now, my CPU, with a BCLK of 104 jumps from 1250 Mhz to 4470 Mhx with a multiplier of 43. With this config, I get close to the fastest memory speed, and can use voltage offset, speed stepping, disable PLL overvoltage and use a max Vcore of about 1.31.

However, maybe you are right and the BCLK 104 will prove unstable over the long term.

Well, something you will also find, the higher your CPU overclock, the less memory overclock you can achieve.

What type of memory did you purchase? Sounds like you should have got some of that amazing samsung memory.

Well, as I tried to convey in my previous post, reducing the CPU to stock clocks (100x32) does not seem to make any difference in so far as overclocking the ram when I have more than 1 DIMM per channel.

Yes, I believe I have that allegedly "magical" Samsung ram. 8x4GB of MV-3V4G3D/US.

Yet it does not seem to help much when the Extreme6 has all slots filled. I was able to get 8-8-8-24 timings at around 1.4 vDIMM at my current DDR-1680 fairly easily. Any tighter timings and I ran into issues. However I believe that the issue of hitting the wall at around DDR-1700 with all 8 slots filled is either due to the motherboard or memory controller on the CPU as I am apparently stable at 8-8-8-24 @ DDR-1680, but can't even boot into Windows at much above DDR-1700, even with raising timings to 11-11-11-28 and vDIMM up to 1.6v. I did try briefly with only 1 DIMM per channel to rule out the memory, and was able to boot into Windows at DDR-2133 with 4 DIMMs, even at a multiplier of 46 (BCLK 100)

Edit: I see that in your CPU-Z link you have 1 DIMM per channel. Have you ever tried more than that in your Extreme9?

I haven't tried more than that in my extreme9, with my overclock, I wasn't able to get stability at 2133. Booting into windows was easy, but prime95 blend would start killing workers.

I haven't had much use for more than 16gb of memory, so I don't think I will ever go to 32gb unless someone is giving it away. With a linux VM, 2 games, 8-10 browsers open, skype, vent, ect. ect. I have only been able to use 12gb of memory.
