that worked fine, thank you very much

just going to keep posting here, I have more questions...

1. I currently have p95 running small packets since 2230 yesterday...it's running fine and 1 core max temp has hit 70c. I'm going to let it go the full 24hrs just because I'm already close. I have coretemp watching temps and CPU-Z running, and I'm noticing that coretemp shows a steady CPU frequency of 4204mhz which is what it should be, while CPU-Z is fluctuating between 3500 and 4200. CPU-Z lists the multiplier in ( ) as 16-42. I went back through bios (at least I thought I did) and disabled all turbo and all power saving stuff, so why would it be throttling the CPU like that?

2. While in bios last evening I noticed that it would not let me input a voltage higher than the 1.195v that is the default. It will let me decreased voltage in .05 increments, but would not accept a higher value. If I tried to input a higher value, when I pressed enter the field would just revert to auto.

3. Also worth noting while fiddling around last night if I set the voltage down even .05 lower than the default 1.195v and tried to run p95, either p95 would crash or both p95 and computer would crash. I guess that's not really a question, just information.

much thanks to anybody who wants to respond and help out a newb

I'm not sure why your voltage is capped after reading up on that mobo. You should go through turbo, and power settings again and figure out what each one does, maybe gigabyte has some goofy setting that keeps everything stock?
post #1497 of 1508
I'll just continue posting info here in case anybody is reading and wants to throw their 2c in...

I notice that even when I set the base clock to 100.00 in bios it still reads slightly higher in windows, 100.08 in CPU-Z and 100.10 in coretemp...

There are some settings in BIOS that I was trying to change and BIOS doesn't allow all the options: Vcore voltage response, Vcore loadline calibration, and CPU Vtt loadline calibration...all 3 of these it says are supposed to keep voltage more consistent "with what is set in BIOS under heavy load." They all have 6 settings from high to low, standard being the lowest, and "auto" or "standard" are the only choices I'm allowed to choose from.

With vcore set to auto and multiplier at 44, CPU-Z shows vcore at 1.284, p95 shoots core#2 temp to 84deg in about 2 minutes. with vcore set to 1.275, CPU-Z shows vcore at 1.272 until I start p95 then vcore drops to 1.248. when I stop p95 the vcore increases back to 1.272. with vcore set to 1.270, CPU-Z shows vcore at 1.260 dropping to 1.248 when p95 starts. p95 had 1 worker crash about 2 minutes in...

Not sure where to go from here?

hey thanks for responding. I've been looking through the manual while messing with this stuff. I have all the turbo and sleep settings disabled in bios. I check them every time I go into bios to make sure they are still disabled and they are. something I don't understand is why some of the settings the manual says should be available don't seem to be when I'm in bios? this is all quite new to me so learning as I go.

I am not familiar with gigabyte, but I would enable all of the turbo options to see if any of the other options are changeable after that. Otherwise I would pop CMOS and start over again.

It might be a silly question, but are you using page up and page down to swap options like LLC and such? Mine is a Z77X-D3H. Although yours is a beefier overclocker, mine should have similar BIOS. I am asking about the keys because it took me a while to figure that out. I think that there is a tutorial at the fist BIOS page with the right keys to use. IIRC it is mostly the arrows and the page up and page down keys.
