Whats with the weird core clock on GPUs and 0ghz on the cpu on the second run?

I have no idea, Im thinking just a bug maybe. It wouldnt show any of the correct clocks for the gpu or my ram speed.

What clock did you get the 670 to?

As a question, would running with internal PLL OV and ram voltage around 1.55v be ok for everyday use for 1.5 year+?

Thats when I still was using my 2500K though. I had a really nice clocker but when I was able to jump on 2 GTX 660s for $320 I got them and returned the 670.

As for internal PLL OV and the ram voltage yeah that would be fine.

Yeah, I would be running around 1325-1.4v with a SB, which is not too much.

You can only push so far and to run 2400 with your setup I can say confidently that its not meant to be - high clocks mean squat if the performance is not there - what you need to do now is tweak your memory at a stable speed - 2133 + (what ever your IMC can do long term ) and tighten it up with the timings and sub-timings.... you want to DL AIDA64 Extreme Edition and work on the memory test to improve your your read and latency scores ( ones you can see and use from the free version wink.gif )

Thanks. I am just curious, what the board that can handle the highest BLCK?

 

 not board... what chip rolleyes.gif

 

 the chipset is not limitation.. architecture is. Most extreme users would be very happy to have a SB that could touch the plus side of 105bclk stable...Mine will run 104.7 but has low clock limit of ~5.2ghz anyway.. so redface.gif

post #397 of 3634
First time poster here ph34r2.gif

Let me start by saying my purchase of this board was heavily based on the reviews found here so a big thanks for all the research, pics and stats.

I've been running bone stock for about 4 days with no problems so I decided to try my hand at some mild overclocking. Let me preface this by saying I haven't overclocked anything since a TBird back in 2000. I ran my previous rig (intel 860) stock since I purchased it new a few years ago. I'm not going for any record breaking OC's here. My goal is a modest overclock somewhere @ 4.2.

I started off by trying out the OCGenie button but couldn't get it pass the inital BIOS screen. I then proceeded to spend all day digging through IB OC guides and such and narrowed the problem down to Memory timings related to my Corsair RAM. I couldn't get the XMP profile to Post either. I ended up manually entering OC settings and wanted to get the experts here to check my settings to see if it looks ok.

A few of the questions I have are:

1. The RAM is specified at 1.5V. I couldn't manually force 1.5V. It would only let me go right below or just right beyond at 1.5055V Is this a big deal? When I had it on auto it was setting it somewhere in the1.65V range.

2. On my previous motherboard there were only 4 settings for the RAM timings.. I was a bit overwhelmed by extra options there..I plugged in the ones I recognized based on the manufactures specs and left the other's on auto. I haven't had any issues yet. Should I worry about the extra options here?

3. I tried the Core Voltage setting on Auto first and my temps where 3-5 C higher, I then set it to 1.1500 and ended up with the temps posted. What's a good goal for this voltage?

4. I noticed some talk about the Vdroop setting but I left that alone, I'm not trying to break the record books here so is this a setting I need to worry about?

Welcome to OCN!

 

 Looks like your off to the right start!! thumb.gif

 

I'll see if I can be brief:

 

1. - .05v over is not a bid deal... you can run 1.55v without worry of hardware damage or failure. Heat is a killer of RAM.. 1.65v doesnt even make a heatspreader warm to the touch usually unless your loading all 8-16GB's for MemTest. 

 

2. - Things to try to improve system response and RAM latency:

 

Command Rate = 1

tWR = 12 or lower if stable

tWCL = 7

tRFC = ~100-130 for most single and double sided RAM IC's is fine.. and will cut latency some

 

**You may need to raise vcc I/O voltage to ~1.07 or so when you start tightening latency and raising RAM speeds closer to +2200mhz

 

3. - If you dont need to adjust more power settings to remain stable -> Then DONT ! Use them when needed only! You will only generate more heat from the power phases when you start raising vdroop tolerance and frequency switching.

post #399 of 3634
^so command rate 2 is bad? Which is mostly what I'm using, i think.
post #400 of 3634
It's not bad but 1t is better. You should be able to get it at that speed with your ram. You probably won't notice the difference unless benching. Same with half of what you're doing honestly.

Edit..Sorry Testier. Read your post and thought it was gubbin. Guide explaining memory timing.
