now i put it at 4.5 ghzs base clock is at 101.0 and cpu core volt is at 1.3120
post #1382 of 1508
and what is BCLK i dont see were it is saying bclk

base clock is bclk. in the cpu-z window it says bus speed. the value says 99.98 in the pic you posted. now in the bios it is probably set to auto but if you look you can edit it by setting a value. for future reference this affects your ram as well. if you oc the bclk then you are oc'ing the ram.

but you should have something called cpu load line calibration. this is described as working identical to llc on the gb board. Problem is that in some cases the higher you set the llc, when the cpu gets a high load and goes to apply the target voltage, in it's attempt to keep the voltage from drooping, it may allow the voltage to spike a little and this may then cause instability causing you to crash. One way of dealing with this is to disable the power saving features so that your computer says at the target voltage all the time. However, if you are trying to do your OC using the power saving features, you have to accommodate for the overshoot and set the llc on a lower setting (i.e., high or medium). Trouble is, you have to be careful as if the idle cpu voltage gets too low you risk instability and crash. It's all a balancing act.
Finally getting around to messing with this again. Also finally found the LLC setting and have it on High right now. Successfully passes burn test like before at 48/100 max temp 45C. It's a ***** at 49/100. Had to increase voltage to 1.42 to get it to boot into windows. Passed burn test with 49C max temp. Now onto 50/100 and then prime.

Any tips for pushing ram? I have two sets I want to bench and see which I want to keep. One set of 4x4gb Ripjaws Z 1600mhz and one set of 4x4gb Ripjaws X 1866mhz. I know the X's have good chips the other kit is installed so I don't know off hand what chips they have.

The whole memory timing junk is seriously way over my head. It doesn't matter how many times I read over what setting controls what it still confuses the heck out of me. mad.gif

UPDATE

Didn't like 50/100 @ 1.42 went up to 1.43 and got 0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x

switched LLC from High to Extreme and in windows at 5ghz
Passed burn test at 50/100 1.43v 58C max thumb.gif

51/100 1.43v 0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances rats
51/100 1.44v reboot
51/100 1.45v reboot
51/101 1.45v reboot
51/102 1.45v reboot
51/103 1.45v reboot
changing gears
50/101 1.43v Got over jealous and hit enter expecting Start Windows Normally and got hit with the freakin start up repair now waiting on that crap to finish. ARG
50/101 1.43v burn test passed
50/102 1.43v reboot
50/102 1.44v 0x135 stop error which isn't on the overclockers bsod list go figure
50/102 1.45v 0x3B = increase vcore
50/102 1.46v 0x101 = increase vcore with hard lock on bsod
50/102 1.47v 0x0FC not listed
50/102 1.48v 0x1E = increase vcore
50/102 1.49v 0x0C5 not listed
50/102 1.5v passed burn test but was getting a warning from Asus that vcore was 1.552 which is the max according to the chart for h20 cooling. It's the throttling that is increasing my vcore randomly but passed at 5.1GHZ. Sad thing is I still have a hell of alot of thermal headroom on this chip. Max temp was only 65C. mad.gif Guess I'm pretty much at the top though for safe voltages.

Now time to screw with ram and I have no idea what I'm doing with that stuff. No matter how many times I read about what each setting means it doesn't make sense to me. So I guess I;ll just use the auto ram speed settings and let her rip on stock timings.

UPDATE
Oh I got other problems LOL Windows isn't stable by any means. I found out I'm running an outdated version of cpuz because I couldn't validate so I downloaded the newest one then went to go to control panel to remove the old one and I get all kinds of errors. LOL and as I type this It's rebooting and stopped on 0x0FC lol
So I guess 5.1 isn't obtainable. at least not with the route I was taking. Time to go back to the clock ration and more voltage.

51/100 1.46v reboot
51/100 1.47v windows explorer crash on boot
51/100 1.48v reboot
51/100 1.49v explorer crash but recovered
51/100 1.50v explorer still having issues
51/100 1.51v 0x101 = increase vcore
guess it's a 5.0ghz chip and that's it. Oh well not that I run my stuff overclocked anyway. Time to mess with ram now.

So set it back to 50/100 1.43v and switched my 1600mhz ram to 1800mhz and its just booting and booting and booting on it's own nothing is ever coming up on the screen
Now it finally showed a screen and I go into bios and I get this message:

Warning
The current BIOS setting do not fully support this boot device. Press [F1] to enter the BIOS Setup.

Go to Advanced > Boot > CSM Parameters, and adjust CSM (Compatibility Support Module} settings to enable the boot device.

***!

So I hit F1 and I get a black screen with a green cursor. ***!

Apparently adjusting the mhz of the ram is not the way to go for overclocking ram. Guess it's time to hit the cmos reset damnit now I'll loose all those bios settings for the cpu.
mad.gif

Didn't have to reset the bios I got into it ok thankfully.
Looks like I have some reading to do though or these sticks I have in here are just not that good either way.


it's set for 1.43v in bios yet jumps to 1.47v in windows???? LLC is on Extreme. Have to run Bus speed clock at 100.1 to keep it over 5.0 otherwise it's 4.99.... Something to do with the turbo throttling or something. Anyone have ideas?

I don't know if my version of Prime95 is borked or what but it keeps crashing out just after it starts the workers. Running the Max intel burn test now.

Explorer crashed before the first run was complete so it isn't stable yet damn.

Hopped back in bios and set vcore at 1.44v so far it's chugging away still at the first max intel burn test 64C max temp. It's funny how my temps are like a race car tire. Close across the board but not all the same 53C-64C across the 4 cores.
And just after I posted the above update explorer crashed again. mad.gif

Got really tired of rebooting to change things so using the TurboV EVO for my Formy. Changed to 1.45v so far so good.

0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x

Changed up the following settings here and seems more stable still haven't completed one pass yet on max burn test but seems to be more stable as explorer hasn't crashed yet.

UPDATE

Passed one of 5 runs so far on max burn test maybe I can drop vcore now.
882.811 time 54.6401 GFlops

I gotta stop posting just got 0x3B = increase vcore after updating lol.
and now a 0x101 = increase vcore

Ha for some reason the mcp355 for my cpu and board loop stopped working during start up and I had cpu temp warnings on start up. Guess it missed the start sequence or something. Shutting off the computer and turning it back on fired the pump right up.

so at 50/100.1 1.45v right now testing again. I don't know what is worse dialing in a cpu or a gpu for mining.

Not posting an update yet to keep from jinxing it lol.

50/100.1 @ 1.45v 65C max 2 maximum intel burn test runs.
Off to the memory I suppose.
